Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America founder Shannon Watts says her group is not anti-gun, yet suggests that Americans must give up one of two things–their guns or their children.

Speaking to CNN’s Money, Watts said:

The gun lobby is very vocal about their fear of getting their guns taken away. Moms are afraid of our children being taken away, and that’s the argument that I think, will win at the end of the day.

Watts also said: “If arming more people meant that we would be safer, we would be the safest country in the world.”

Ironically, Breitbart News previously reported a study in the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy that the US has a much lower violent crime and murder rate than many European nations where gun control is strict: where they have the very kinds of gun laws Moms Demand would like to see heaved upon Americans.

The study examined numbers from Continental Europe and found that the US murder rate of 7.8 percent was far behind Russia’s murder rate of 30.6–and it should be noted that handguns are banned in Russia.

And a Congressional study reported by Breitbart News in December 2013 also showed that “firearm-related murder and non-negligent homicide” fell nearly 50 percent from 1994 to 2009, as the number of privately owned firearms grew from 192 million to 310 million.

In other words, the US is safer.

; I acknowledge your concern, but I would say you are confusing a “fair fight” with “winning a battle”. The people and groups trying to dismantle our freedoms have no qualms about lieing or deceiving to get their desired results. And no amount of honor is useful if we have lost everything because we were not willing to take the gloves off. As I was taught in self defense school you do not want to to have a fair fight, you want to, by any and all means, fair or unfair, destroy your enemy.

This is the second time in two days that a conservative / pro-gun site has utterly misrepresented the words of one of our opponents. What Watts actually said: “The gun lobby is very vocal about their fear of getting their guns taken away. Moms are afraid of our children being taken away, and that’s the argument that I think, will win at the end of the day.” I don’t agree with Watts’ positions or policy goals one bit. But it sure seems to me Watts is juxtaposing our concerns about our guns being taken away by government to the concerns… Read more »

I would vote for her to give up her kids. I am sure she is teaching them to be good sheep for the democrats, and not teaching them to depend on themselves.

She looks like she belongs in a horror movie like Friday the 13th or maybe even one of the Nightmare on elm street movies, either way she looks like she belongs in a mental hospital or something. Just my dimes worth, talking about a mean looking she devil.

The control freaks always want guns and your kids.

So they created gun control and “free” public schooling.

Just because this woman had several abortions does not make her a mother. I wondering, does obamacare cover her obvious attraction to the crack pipe.

Dave, the author made a mistake but his point is valid. The US murder rate is below the world average. In Europe only Russians have a high murder rate, way higher than the US overall. That includes Russian speakers that live outside of Russia. Goes to show that it is social dynamics that drive the murder rate not access to guns.

The rate would be 7.8 murders per 100,000 people. Not 7.8 percent. That would be one thousand times higher. The author, I believe, is confused.

Seems like Ms. Watts really wishes for us to just give up. A world view in which apparently you’re supposed to roll over and die when faced with serious threats.

Crazy would have been more appropiate than fail.
Also the face of a future victim.

“The study examined numbers from Continental Europe and found that the US murder rate of 7.8 percent was far behind Russia’s murder rate of 30.6–and it should be noted that handguns are banned in Russia.”

That sentence confuses me. If the U.S. murder rate is 7.8 percent, does that mean that 7.8% of people were murdered? Seems high, no?
