Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- On July 17 2015, MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts referenced the Chattanooga attack on unarmed U.S. Marines and the PEW poll showing Americans are moving away from gun control, then asked Shannon Watts if she’s “fighting a losing battle–that people feel that it’s going to take a good guy with a gun to outdo a bad buy with a gun?”

Watts rejected the suggestion.

Watts responded by saying, “Absolutely not.” She went on to point out that her gun control group, Bloomberg-funded Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, rejects the PEW poll’s findings. Watts then cited polls from two-and-a-half years ago in an attempt to argue for more gun control, the Chattanooga attack notwithstanding.

Roberts played a video of President Obama citing the need for a “shift” on how Americans view guns and gun rights–suggesting this “shift” is the necessary prerequisite to the passage of new gun control. Roberts asked Watts, “Do you think that shift can really happen?”

Watts responded, “This is the same Congress we had the day before Sandy Hook, which is when I got involved, that we had the day after. So this Congress, we need them to move.” She then pointed to the fact that gun control bills have been introduced, suggesting that the various introductions of those bills comprise “signs that [Congress] realizes that this is an issue and they need to do something.”

Watts said, “Make no mistake. This is going to be the number one voting issue for many women and mothers in this country 2016. In the meantime, we are winning in the states. We just closed the 38th legislative session this year and we defeated 40 [NRA-backed] bills.”

She explained that these bills would have allowed teachers to be armed for self-defense in K-12 schools, that would have allowed women to be armed to fight off sexual predators on college campuses, that would have allowed constitutional carry.

Yes, Watts showed up the day after an Islamist named Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez allegedly shot and killed four unarmed Marines and bragged about the actions her group has taken to keep law-abiding citizens unarmed.

While in another article….

A new study by the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) finds that the number of people with concealed firearm carry permits has reached an all-time high, and that increasing the number of permit-holders is associated with a decrease in murder and total violent crime.

Law of unintended consequences. Bleeding heart voters in the early 20th century gave us prohibition AND organized crime (e.g. Al Capone). Now according to Watts Women and Mothers are going to vote for “Gun Control”. If that happens what will be the “unintended consequence?” Totalitarianism? Civil War?

People need to vote with their heads, not their emotions.

There are four things that drive gun control worldwide: prejudice, politics, control and money. While those at the lower end may operate on altruistic feelings those at the top are driven by these four. Once you understand this you also understand that reasoning and logic (with them) serves no purpose.

What this country does need is a shift, we need our military to be armed, you look at any other country most if not all have their military armed at all times except this country. It was clintoon that disarmed the military in the first place, it is NOW time that they are rearmed that way they will be less of a target. This Watts thing needs to get its head out of bloombugs pants and look around and really see what is going on in the real world, right now she or it is living in a fantasy world… Read more »
