Quote of the day—Moms Demand Action

Moms Demand Action supports the 2nd Amendment, but we believe common-sense solutions can help decrease the escalating epidemic of gun violence that kills too many of our children and loved ones every day. Whether the gun violence happens in urban Chicago, suburban Virginia, or rural Texas, we must act now on new and stronger gun laws and policies to protect our children.

Moms Demand Action
Web page, as of April 28, 2014
[I find it very telling that if they enumerate what they think are “common-sense solutions” they don’t make them easy to find on their web site. I couldn’t find them. If they really had solutions don’t you think they would announce them all to the world? What this means to me is they are running an emotional appeal, as they have already admitted, and will push whatever restrictive law they believe has a chance of passing. Facts and logic aren’t their tools in trade.

From reading their press releases and get the facts web pages it appears that for starters they want to stop public carry, ban modern sporting rifles, ban standard capacity magazines, and eliminate “stand your ground laws”. And if they were successful doing that you can be sure they would find a lot more “common-sense” restrictions they support.

I have to conclude Moms Demand Action demands are mostly hysteria and wonder if the traditional cure for it wouldn’t bring us all some relief.—Joe]

  1. What “escalating epidemic of gun violence” do they know about that the FBI has missed in its annual crime reports?

    Gun crime is lower now than at any time since the 1970s, or so I have read.

  2. mikee,

    I think the peak was actually quite a bit later, perhaps 1990 even–but for sure it’s been on a long, slow, steady decline for at least 1/3 of a century now.

  3. The key is in the definitions and usage.

    Common Sense;
    Any law, rule, restriction, limitation, usurpation, concept or idea which furthers the cause and/or power of authoritarians or authoritarianism.

    Once you understand the language of Left-Speak, these seemingly ridiculous and discombobulated statements actually make sense.

    Ergo, we now have Common Sense energy policy, Common Sense economic and banking policies, Common Sense security measures, Common Sense gun laws, Common Sense federal lands management, etc., etc.

    Better now?
