Moms Demand appears to be on the fast downhill slope to irrelevancy. The original run with a Staples Store in Virginia where they claimed the manager followed their demands and made the store Gun Free only to be revealed later that it was just a lie. But apparently that was not enough and Shannon Watts started a signature campaign to force Staple’s CEO to change the chain’s policy regarding guns. This is the result so far:
They collected 12,348 on-line signatures in 5 months! That is about 82 signatures per day. Again, the best they could do was to get 82 people on average to click on a link and write their name on a form. They are less effective than what a Girl Scout selling cookies in San Francisco did in 2 hours.
I think we are seeing (for now) that Gun Control groups are forsaking to change public opinion so regular folks pressure their representatives and more direct pressure on the politicritters in the form of electoral cash and the threat of well-funded challengers.
If they make the tactical mistake of forsaking public opinion, we should jump in with both feet and keep presenting our culture. But that also means not behaving like idiots by doing the “Fuck You! That is Why!” public relations approach.
Be polite, present your side, agree to disagree & say Thank You to those who are inquiring about Gun Culture. We will always need more votes.
