Everytown And Moms Demand Action Step Up Attacks on Gun Owners of America

Of Course Shannon Watts & Everytown are Anti-gun & Hate the Second Amendment
Of Course Shannon Watts & Everytown are Anti-gun & Hate the Second Amendment

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Two Bloomberg front groups, Everytown and Moms Demand Action, have started targeting Gun Owners of America with attacks on Twitter, showing the increasing power of the gun-rights group.

Everytown’s Tweet read: “Gun Owners of America has defended the Kenosha shooter & touted dangerous conspiracy theories about some of the most tragic mass shootings in America. Any candidate that accepts a donation or endorsement from GOA is co-signing these actions.”

Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand tweeted: “A spokesperson for Gun Owners of America, a gun lobbying organization even more extreme than the NRA, on the teen who killed Kenosha protesters: “He used a firearm in the way it’s supposed to be used … he wasn’t reckless. He wasn’t firing into a crowd.”

Everytown calls Kyle Rittenhouse the “Kenosha shooter.” Rittenhouse is a 17-year-old teenager that a business owner asked to help protect property. The teenager spent the day cleaning up graffiti from the previous night’s riots. Rioters burned and looted businesses the night before because of the police shooting of a man that police tried to arrest due to a warrant for sexual assault.

Rittenhouse was interviewed earlier in the night, and the reporter asked what he was doing in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Rittenhouse explained he was there to protect the business and render first aid to whoever needed it regardless of sides. Everytown’s propaganda seems to try to lump Rittenhouse with past mass murderers.

Violent protestors lit a dumpster on fire and tried to push it into a police barricade. Rittenhouse used a fire extinguisher to put out the flames. The enraged crowd attacked Rittenhouse, and someone fired a shot. Rittenhouse turned around only to have convicted child molester Joseph throw something at him. The man who raped five boys continued to charge Rittenhouse. Rittenhouse, who was armed with an AR15, allegedly shot and killed Rosenbaum.

Other rioters started chasing Rittenhouse. The 17-year-old tried to retreat, but he tripped and fell to the ground. A man with a criminal history pulled out a handgun and pointed the gun at Rittenhouse. Before he had a chance to shoot the teen, Rittenhouse shot him in the bicep. A third man attacked the teen with a skateboard, and Rittenhouse shot him in the chest.

The media demonized Rittenhouse. Joe Biden falsely claimed that the teen was a member of a white supremacist militia. There is no evidence to support Biden’s claim. GOA called out Biden for flaming the fires of discord for making baseless claims. GOA also called out the former Vice President and anti-gun advocate’s demonization of the right to self-defense.

Gun Owners of America believes that self-defense is a human right. Regardless of age, the video evidence shows Rittenhouse only defending himself. No evidence shows the teen as an aggressor. Rioters have attacked people from coast to coast, including the murder of a Trump supporter in Portland.

Everytown for Gun Safety also claimed that the gun-rights group peddled conspiracies. The rabid anti-gun group did not list a single conspiracy that GOA has pushed to its membership, or anyone else. Looking through past GOA posts, tweets, and alerts, AmmoLand did not turn up any talk of “false flags” or any other conspiracies. AmmoLand also could not find any interviews with GOA staff talking about conspiracy theories.

Recently, USA Today op-ed contributor Justin McFarlin wrote an article claiming that guns are now “white privilege.” He says it is dangerous for a black person to be armed. McFarlin claimed to be a firearms instructor and a gun owner. After looking into McFarlin’s background, it appears that he is an employee for Everytown for Gun Safety. In the anti-gun advocate’s article, he talks about whites using guns to intimidate black protestors. The report shows a picture of two people—one in a Hawaiian shirt and the other holding up a rifle. AmmoLand noticed someone turned up the contrast in the image. AmmoLand was able to track down the two people pictured to try to figure out the reason for the contrast adjustment.

The man in the Hawaiian shirt is Mike Dunn. He was speaking at a Second Amendment rally in Richmond hosted by Black Lives Matter 757. The man holding up the rifle is Brent “Pops” Holmes. In a further twist of irony, Holmes is a black gun owner and advocate.

This omission left gun advocates wondering if Everytown was the one that was spreading conspiracy theories and fake news? One of these gun-rights advocates is GOA’s Senior Vice President, Erich Pratt.

“It appears that the picture in question was doctored to peddle the conspiracy that whites in general – and hence, Kyle Rittenhouse by inference – are gunning for black victims,” Pratt said. “But the picture shows the exact opposite to be true, which underscores just how desperate are the anti-gun conspirators on the Left to bury the real truth.”

Everytown did not respond to AmmoLand’s request for comment.

Anti-constitutionalist’s sense of morality is situational, based on incident and emotion, instead of rooted in God’s word and law.
Anti-constitutionalist’s stand for nothing. The situation determines their support for an issue and their emotions rule, not reason and rationality.
Moreover, they recognize the contradiction, but still cling to their situational justice. Situational justice is the tool of dictators, tyrants, despots, and unjust, unrighteous monarchs. It has no place in a free constitutional republic. In which the United States of America is……………….

“Gun Violence”? What is the problem here – the gun or the violence? The gun wasn’t responsible for the 3rd-world anarchy that is now engulfing the cities. The gun wasn’t responsible for the destruction of 1500 businesses in Minneapolis. The gun wasn’t responsible for the estimated $2 billion dollars in property damage. The gun wasn’t responsible for sanctioned riots that closed down entire cities like Portland and Seattle. The gun wasn’t responsible for the felonious public threats and intimidation. The gun wasn’t responsible for the removal of police that led to spiking crime rates. What is responsible? Look at the… Read more »

At every possible opportunity, I remind members of Moms Demand Action that there was a popular and financially-successful porn movie by that same name in the late 1980s… the fun begins when I ask each one what role they played in the movie! You wouldn’t believe the screaming and cursing! LOL

Maybe Shannon Watts should be required to watch the videos of Kyle Rittenhouse trying to get away from the violent mob long before he had to shoot a couple of them to ensure his own safety?

The Left isn’t interested in truth or facts. They have their agenda and that is all that matters to them.

There is a growing, irritating tendency in and out of journalism to misapply apostrophes.

This article is such an example.

It is not “Mom’s Demand Action,” it is “Moms Demand Action.”

Apostrophes are not used to form plurals.

Or, as this editor would apparently allow, “Apostrophe’s are not used to form plural’s.”

‘See how ridiculous that looks?

the lowly apostrophe (what nice big complicated word for a tiny little jot….) is pretty easy to overlook.

There is another very ridiculous trend in “journalism”. SOmeone quotes a tweet, in its entirety, then follows the quote with the tween itself. Complicated, messy, wastes space and time, and bandwidth.

If the tweet is quoted, don’t follow it with the tweet itself. Simply cite the account sending it. If the tweet is incorporated into the article, don’t waste the space and wordage quiting it.

Everytown and Mom’s Demand Action are Anti-gun & Hate the Second Amendment. If they get a repeal of 2A and have all guns taken, who is left possessing guns? Can you say CRIMINALS? So, us folks who live where the response of police protection could be at least a half hour, are vulnerable to the criminals with guns. There are over 5 million illegal guns on the street in the hands of criminals, how does Everytown and MDA propose to get those?

Don’t forget…. the moment our Colonial forbears first fired upon General Gage’s troops back on 19 Paril 1775, they ALL became traitors, having tanken up arms in an acto of war against George Three the Kid King who had ordred Gage to take up the weapons of those pesky colonials. There are over 5 million illegal guns on the street in the hands of criminals No guns are, in and of themselves,… Read more »

“…Gun Owners of America, a gun lobbying organization even more extreme than the NRA…”

Should read …” a civil rights organization even more extreme than the NRA…”but still quite the compliment for GOA.

Bloomberg and his minions will rue the day that they destroy the NRA. GOA and 2AF are no compromise. No negotiation. The left is intent on destroying our Constitutional Republic. Are you 3% enough to prevent them? Semper Fi
