I saw this posted yesterday in the MDA Facebook page. Laughter ensued.

Moms Demand Texas Tower


The article is a long babble about how much Universities have to spend on gun safes and de-escalation training and gets destroyed when a reader comments that the Campus Carry bill does not mandate any of that crap and that those expenses are voluntary. But it was the photograph that sent me into giggles: That is the tower of University of Texas at Austin where in 1966, Charles Whitman opened fire against the student body killing 8 people and wounding a bunch more. Whitman had previously killed 5 more, but they were family and people inside the tower and I am making the distinction because he was unable to add to the count from outside the tower thanks to the many armed civilians that came to the scene and started to return fire making impossible for Whitman to tally more victims.

So, the “media director” or appropriate intern for Moms Demand used a photo of one of the most iconic examples of Good Guys with Guns Stopping a Bad Guy.

  1. Why they are going to loose, they are trying to force us to live in their world. We are not even inviting them to come and live in ours but they are welcome any time.

  2. Ouch! PR fail! 🙂

    @Greg: They have a standing invitation to come and live in my world, as long as they leave their bigotry, misconceptions, half-truths, and lies at the entrance.

    Inexplicably, none have taken me up on the offer….

  3. The stupid hurts. M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, in Houston, Texas, is a part of the University of Texas system, and not a part of U of H. They cannot get the most basic facts right, yet expect to be taken seriously and as experts.
