Noted Gun Control Cultist sets new record for number of lies in one paragraph

The Left does not hold the truth as a value, Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action gord one step farther. She worships at the Altar of Falsehoods In her op-ed for Teen Vogue for example

In her op-ed, Watts advises young women to hate the NRA for keeping American lawmakers ever-reminded of their oath to uphold and defend the United States Constitution which includes the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

In part because America has something else no other developed nation has: a gun lobby that pushes for extreme “guns everywhere” policies while lobbying against common-sense gun laws. The National Rifle Association — which used to be an organization of sportsmen and hunters — boasts some of the most powerful lobbyists in America, working to pad the pockets of gun manufacturers by fighting even modest efforts to close loopholes in our gun laws. As a result, dangerous people are able to get their hands on guns — no questions asked.

Hmmm, guns everywhere? If Watts means the NRA supports the Constitutionally protected natural right to carry arms for self-defense she is right. She hates that right and she hates to talk about the number of times guns are used by law-abiding Americans to defend themselves annually. The lies keep coming and Bob owens does a good job at setting the record straight go read it all

Mothers Against Common Sense gather at Target, given the boot

Here is a reality check, most folks going shopping at Target, or anywhere, really want to be left alone. they certainly do not wish to be brow beaten by radical groups like Moms Demand Action

Moms Demand Action’s peaceful protest at a local Target store was over before it even started.

Moms stood outside a San Antonio Target on Sunday afternoon, holding signs. They were asking the store to not allow customers to carry guns openly inside.

These moms were hoping to ask Target customers to sign a petition demanding change, but the store manager asked the group to leave.

Jamie Addams, a member of Moms Demand Action, said that although they were asked to leave, their fight is not over. 

“That’s slightly frustrating to know that whoever allowed that to happen that a gun rally took place, but we were armed with clipboards and children and they asked us to leave,” she said. 

The fact that this woman ignores is that most people are not on the Moms Demand Action side. Nothing this group advocates would stop the type of school shootings the Moms say they are trying to stop. They have also been caught in several bald-faced lies by PolitiFact, CNN, and others. They have no credibility, and as Bob Owens points out harassing shoppers does not work

Moms Demand/Everytown has been hammered repeatedly for manufacturing incidents of school shootings and for a long history of fabrication and deception.

That Shannon Watts continues to exploit the families of victims of violence to push the anti-liberty political agenda of a pint-sized narcissist like Michael Bloomberg is deplorable.

Tragedy Pimps like Shannon Watts prey on the emotions of mothers who have lost children, and I can think of few things more disgusting than making a living doing that. I have told the story of my encounter with a mother who had lost a son to gang violence. I was shopping at the local Kroger, and this lady approached me, telling me about a card that would both save me a little money on groceries and donate to a group offering emotional support for families who had lost children to violence. Her son, she explained, had been gunned down by a gang. I offered my sympathies, and told her how, just about a month before, I had been the intended victim of an armed robber. She asked how I had prevented the robbery, and I explained I had been able to pull my gun, and the robber had run away. Her facial expression changed immediately. She looked at me like I was a bad person, she pulled the card from my hand, glared at me a second or two, and stalked away. I felt for her, clearly she saw a gun as responsible for her sons murder. She had likely been fed the anti-gun propaganda that gun grabbers have been using for years now. Rather than seeing me as a survivor, or a person who had stopped a crime, she saw me as a bad guy simply because I had defended myself with a gun.

Had I told her that I was robbed, or shot by the thug, she would likely have offered me sympathy. Had she met my mother, and been told how I had been killed during that robbery she would have been sympathetic. But, because I acted to defend myself, she instantly loathed me. This woman was a case of how anti-gun rhetoric can poison people’s minds and make them hate good people simply because of how they defend themselves. I wonder how many women Shannon Watts has poisoned in this fashion? I wonder how Shannon Watts sleeps at night.


The next time Shannon Watts tells you that a good guy with a gun has never stopped a bad guy with a gun…..

…….you can call her BS

Moms Demand Action From Illegal Mayors in Everytown cult leader Shannon Watts claims that a good guy with a gun has “never” stopped a bad guy with a gun.

Here’s just the latest example of her being dead wrong.

It was about 11pm Monday when a 17 year old girl who lives in the home was getting something from her car. Two men, both with guns, grabbed her. The began to push her back into the home with a gun to her head. Her father, who says he was visiting the girl and her mother, saw the gunmen and pulled his own weapon. He says he had no choice but to fire.

“He was holding her hostage. She was a human shield. So I did what I had to do.”

Asked how he had the confidence to pull the trigger when the man was holding his daughter that way, he said, “It wasn’t like that. It just happened. I didn’t have no choice. He had my daughter so I did what I had to do.”

The father asked that we not use his name.

The man he shot and killed was Terrell Johnson, 31, of St. Louis. The second suspect, who the father says was wearing a mask, is Cortez McClinton, 33, also of St. Louis.

Anyone can, of course, easily find hundreds of examples of good guys with guns stopping bad guys, it happens every day across our nation. On October 1, 1998, I was a good guy, with a gun, who stopped a masked thug trying to rob me. In many instances, the good guy simply pulls his or her gun, and the bad guy decides to flee, this was the case in my scenario. Do not let the gun control folks win the war of words. They rely on lies, and should be called on them every time they tell one.

Something I do not get about the Ft. Hood shooting

We were told that Lopez had been diagnosed with PTSD, and was on a cocktail of meds. Yet he never saw combat, was in Iraq for only four months, never coming under fire, so the diagnosis of PTSD made no sense to me. Then there is this “The underlying medical conditions are not believed to be the precipitating event to the actual shooting,” Lt. Gen. Mark Milley told reporters at the base. “The precipitating event we think was probably this argument, some sort of argument that occurred.

So, an argument is what may have ignited this situation?

Chris Grey, a spokesman for the Amy Criminal Investigation Command, said during the press conference the investigation into the shooting remained open. He said the precipitating verbal argument was with soldiers from Lopez’s unit and that some of the soldiers involved in the argument were victims.

He also said the shooting occurred at multiple locations and that Lopez drove in a vehicle shooting indiscriminately at other soldiers. “All evidence” points to Lopez acting alone, Grey said, but no possibility has been ruled out.

If Lopez, just lost it, and shot the men, from Lopez’s unit, why would he continue firing randomly apparently, wounding 16 and killing three? Sorry, I have to question what role his mental state, he had been diagnosed with PTSD yet, played. And yes, I certainly wonder if the meds he was taking were a large part of this.

On Thursday, Army Secretary John McHugh said during a congressional hearing on Capitol Hill that Lopez, who was an Army truck driver and had served in Iraq, was under medical treatment and had been prescribed several medications, including the sleep aid Ambien.

He was in the process of being potentially diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, but none of his doctors saw any warning signs in his most recent visits. “The plan forward was to just continue to monitor and treat him as deemed appropriate,” McHugh said.

Lots of questions are still to be answered. But Bob Owens makes a good point about how gun grabbers like Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action might be perfectly willing to use PTSD as a reason to disarm our vets

Likewise, it was known on the night of the shooting (April 2) that Ivan Lopez was a soldier that never saw combat. He served one four-month deployment to Iraq, and was never under fire. He was never wounded, and had not received a Purple Heart. He was being treated for anxiety and depression, neither of which were related to combat.

Nonetheless, Watts decided to smear every servicemen who actually saw the horrors of war and suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Injuries, as part of an apparent anti-gun “long game” of smearing combat wounded veterans in order to disarm them.

She’s pushed this smear twice… and she’s probably not done.

First, Watts, posted this claim two days after it was known that Lopez was never diagnosed with PTS and had never seem combat.

Thanks to #NRA #FortHood officers couldn’t ask shooter w/PTSD about privately owned  #guns http://t.co/4l2MRhFgGQ #momsdemand #gunsense— Shannon (@shannonrwatts) April 4, 2014

Something that has worried me since the Left began harping on “mental health” and background checks is how far they are willing to go to use mental health to bar some, especially vets, from firearm ownership. The goal of the Shannon Watts of America is, I believe, to disarm us by any means necessary. And smearing out vets, and using PTSD is apparently included in their campaign of misinformation.

Just as a side note. I do wonder what role psychiatric drugs play in mass shootings, and other violent crimes as well. I think we live in an over diagnosed, over medicated society. These drugs have their place, and many doctors are very responsible when  prescribing them. But others are too quick to write a prescription, or two, or more. It is crucial that everyone, especially our vets get the help, whatever that is they need. And if it is a prescription drug, fine. But these drugs are, like many other things, can be dangerous if not prescribed, or taken, responsibly. I have seen people who take anti-depressants have drastic personality changes when they accidentally over-medicated themselves.

One last thing from Bob Owens, who like me, is a fierce defender of both our right to self-defense, and of our vets and military. You should read this about PTSD, it is important

J.R. Salzman, a world-class athlete, author, IED survivor with post-traumatic stress injuries, does a good job of describing what PTS really is… and it isn’t violent aggression.


Moms Demand Action, another Left-Wing group posing as pro-woman

Bearing Arms asks a great question about Moms Demand Action, a gun control group

Moms Demand Action—the anti-gun astroturf group of older women run by veteran PR maven Shannon Watts—knows that they are losing the public relations war against firearms. Young urban, and female gun owners are the fastest growing demographics in the shooting sports, turning shooting into truly social events.

Aware of the fact that gun controllers are losing this younger generation before they can be conned by anti-gun hysteria, Moms Demand has attempted to slow their hemorrhaging support by telling women that if they bring guns into their homes, that they are more likely to die of domestic violence.

They assert that if you bring a gun into your home, that Evil Males™ will simply take your gun away from you, and kill you with it.

Presumably, Watts and her ilk would rather you take your beating quietly.

A woman in Henderson, Nevada, apparently wasn’t too keen on taking the “let me sit here and take my beating instead of protecting myself with a gun” advice dished out by Moms Demand. Though she lacked a firearm of her own, she did have a neighbor with one that may have saved her life when her estranged boyfriend invaded her home with ill intent.

Earlier in the night, the couple got into an argument at a party before the woman took her boyfriend home and drove to her own apartment. Police described the couple as estranged.

Fearful that he might show up at her home, she called a man who lives in her apartment complex, Paul said. Her boyfriend, 49, eventually arrived and tried to kick in the front door before climbing in through a window.

The neighbor cautioned him to stop and told him that he had a weapon, Paul said. The alleged intruder reportedly continued to advance toward them, and the armed man fired several shots, striking and killing him.

The gun grabbing left has been pushing this nonsense for decades. They ignore, deliberately, the tens of thousands of Americans, many of them women, who use firearms to defend themselves annually. Like all Leftist groups, they use lies, and fear tactics to pursue their real aim, control, of people.
