One big fat lie: Shannon Watts claims Moms Demand group isn’t anti-gun


In an interview with CBS News, Shannon Watts – founder of Bloomberg’s Moms Demand – claims their aren’t anti-gun.

Excerpts from their story:

“Moms Demand Action is a grassroots organization advocating for stronger gun control measures, founded as a Facebook group the day after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre that took the lives of 26 people, 20 of whom were young children. But while its members advocate for an assault ban, Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts says that it’s a “misnomer” to call the group anti-gun.

“Often people think that because we’re doing this work, we’re anti-gun or we don’t support the Second Amendment. Nothing could be further from the truth,” Watts said in an interview with CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett in this week’s episode of “The Takeout” podcast. Watts noted that many volunteers the organization were gun owners or married to gun owners.

“This is simply about restoring the responsibilities that go along with gun rights,” Watts said. She added that while the top priorities for Moms Demand Action are background checks, red-flag laws and disarming domestic abusers, the organization also advocates for an assault weapons ban and has worked with municipalities on the issue.”

Since all firearms can be used to “assault”, or defend against, another individual, the left will slowly expand their list of scary and dangerous weapons, until they are all verboten. Power-crazed politicians cannot cement their absolute and complete control over a well-armed and vigilant population. History is replete with examples… Read more »

She is lying, as all anti gunners want to grab ’em a little at a time. Piece meal, bit by bit, that’s the goal

Lying is simply a tool of Marxism. We can expect a Marxist to lie.
