Illinois –-( The shrill voice of extremism echoed through the halls of the Niles Community Center on Monday night as the Bloomberg Moms tried without success to block a special use permit that would allow a pistol range and gun shop to open in an industrial area of the village.

In the end, the voice of reason prevailed with the zoning commission sending the application ahead to the full village council by a 5-2 vote.

Of the 250 or so people who packed the community center meeting room, about 75% appeared to be in favor of permitting the shop/range. What the Moms lacked in numbers they made up for with nonsense. It wasn’t good enough for the Moms to spout their familiar and tired repertoire of unsubstantiated claims against private firearms ownership.

No, the Moms sunk to new depths – launching a campaign of lies and innuendo about the qualifications and character of the entrepreneurs seeking to open the shop/range facility.

On the other hand, supporters of the shop/range proposal testified with facts showing that the range and gun shop would be a great benefit to the community in terms of educational opportunities, jobs and tax revenues. Supporters of the proposal also debunked the Moms’ claim that the opening of the shop/range facility would endanger school children in the village.

Anyone in attendance at the meeting Monday night received an excellent lesson in what the Moms are truly all about. Once the Moms began testifying, it became abundantly clear that they believe that government should be shutting down ranges and shops – not allowing for the opening of new facilities. It was evident that, even if this range was being proposed for opening on a desert island, the few out of touch Moms would rise in protest. The Moms proved themselves once again to be one of those groups that hate guns and the people who own them, as well as our freedom in the USA. It was evident to all who attended the meeting that the Moms are less interested in stemming so-called “gun violence” and more interested in abolishing your right to keep and bear arms.

Thanks go out to all of the supporters who turned out in Niles on Monday night. The great show of support was appreciated by the entrepreneurs who have applied for the special use permit to open the shop/range. However, this was just one of many battles that must be won if the shop is to open. The next milestone is winning approval of the full village council. The date for that vote has not been set. When the Illinois State Rifle Association learns of the date, an alert containing instructions will be distributed.

Commie mommies at their best, they forgot to play the race card………


I honestly believe that most of the women that sign up with this king of anti-gun group are really trying to protect someone in their family that is a criminal.


What do you call a Mom who would take money from Bloomberg to do something she wouldn’t do for pleasure? Sharron Watts, we’re looking at you and your paid MOMs.

Everyone knows Shannon Watts lies.

From what I see, most of these people, have no real understanding of the issue. All they know ” guns are bad’. If they would read an honesty history of the anti gun movement in America they would come away with a different view and may feel their self respect is worth more.


Ironically, it was a gun shop that saved the day, and probably lives, during the L.A. bank heist shootout. When the outgunned police ran to the shop seeking the rifles they needed, the shop owner didn’t hesitate for one second to hand them out. Not sure where the two psycho criminals got their guns though. Maybe the “moms” should look into it.


Anything shining light on the mental depravity and
instability of these screeching harpys makes it a good day in America.


Good new name: Hysterical Gun Grabbers!

It has been my experience that those whom opposed “private” firearms ownership by we mere peons know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about firearms, their proper and safe usage, Constitutional protections of firearms, our American Heritage and history, ballistics, basic firearms terminology, mechanical aspects of firearms, firearms law, Common Law regarding self defense and justifiable violence, or anything even remotely related to firearms. In other words, regarding their knowledge of firearms, they are complete IDIOTS. In my travels on planet Earth, I’ve actually had an anti-gun woman, the self-appointed “Executive Director of the Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence”, admit in a T.V. interview… Read more »


We need more stories like this to prove that they lie about their goals. They don’t respect the 2A they want to ban guns. Any video of the meeting online?


Stories like this that expose “Moms” just makes my day. They are just so…ignorant.


These butthurt moms want to disarm regular citizens and not the 600 armed gangs in chicago . Once again they show their stupidity.
