“Gun Safety Advocates” and other lies.

“Gun Safety Advocates” is the new re-branding for Gun Control activists.  The original name ended up sounding too Nazi so they went to others including Gun Violence experts and now this latest label.  But the name is not working alone. They are re-hashing an old but favorite slogan to go along with their new brand: We are doing it for the children!

Moms Demand are now fully again on the accidental shooting by/to kids bandwagon and toned down the Universal Background Checks opera (at least for a while) so every news item where a kids gets hurt or killed by gunfire becomes the last stages of civilization as we know it. Last Friday (or was it Saturday? never mind) I had an exchange with a lady in Facebook who was repeating the MDA mantras about Gun Safety and children, so I asked her one simple question: How many gun locks has Moms Demand provided out of their deep pockets to secure firearm at home? ….crickets…. I also asked her if they have done reviews and recommendations about gun safes so parents could safely lock their guns away from the reach of tiny hands….yep, more crickets. I ended up pointing out that maybe MDA is not only not interested in solving the problem but that they might be benefiting from it as they have not done one real thing to promote gun safety as they advocate….. I am still waiting for the lady to answer me.

So I was surprised when on Saturday night I happen to come across this post from MDA:

Moms Demand Safe Storage

 

Holy crap! Was somebody from Moms Demand watching the exchange and decided that they needed to cover that obvious hole? So I clicked on the link to The Idiot’s Guide to Gun Storage expecting at least some modicum of advice on keeping the guns under lock and key separated from the ammunition….and it turns out to be a long rant on kids being killed by guns with no real help for any parent who may wish to actually get an answer. So much for theses “Gun Safety Advocates.”

So, don’t expect to see this gun lock anytime soon, even for sale, at the Moms Demand website:

Moms Demand Gun Lock

And if you need to get a gun lock, any gun store will have them for literally peanuts or go to Project Childsafe where you will be able to locate where to get a free gun lock. Hell, ask your “gun nut” friends as they all have at least one or two spares around the house. It is a good first step.

  1. I’ll say it again: Make the purchase of a DOJ approved gun safe (Residential Security Container) a tax free/tax deductible expense up to a certain value (say $2500 or $5000).

    It will encourage people to buy them, and if they buy them, they will probably use them.

    Not just will this keep more guns out of the hands of kids but keep more guns out of the hands of criminals. It’s harder to steal a gun out of a safe and so the rate of gun thefts from burglaries (No. 1 way criminals get guns, either they steal them or buy a stolen one) will go down.

    Win-win and without having for punish anybody. Did I mention that most of the (reputable) gun safes sold in the US (Ft. Knox, Browning, Liberty, Winchester, Champion, Superior) are made in the USA. More safe buying = more American manufacturing jobs.

    Safer kids, fewer illegal guns on the streets, more American jobs. How can a politician be against that?

    1. Politicians don’t want to stop the efforts to disarm us because ultimately they will go to far and a future revolution will result in their execution as traitors. Their fear of our firepower is sincere. You can’t have a dictatorship when the citizens can shoot back.

  2. Truth is gun accidents with kids continues to decline in this country. Just check the CDC data. Reporting on the accidents? Opposite direction.

    I got banned from CSGV for pointing out that NSSF has done more directly to stop gun accidents (safety locks, education programs) and crime (“don’t lie for the other guy” campaign with ATF. Improve and fix current NICS system) than CSGV ever had.

  3. “I ended up pointing out that maybe MDA is not only not interested in solving the problem but that they might be benefiting from it”

    Just like the Democrats and their hollow words of assistance to the poor/gays/ethnic minorities. As long as they benefit from having a problem to solve, it is in their best interest to ensure that problem remains in place.

    Democrats will never help the poor. It’s too solid a voting block.
