Everytown Advertisement Proves Anti-Gun Policies Are MORE Dangerous for Women

 

Bloomberg’s new anti-gun organization Everytown released this new advertisement in hopes that it would encourage people to contact their legislators and get guns out of the hands of domestic abusers. Fine, I get that and I would even agree with it BUT what happens when these criminals disobey laws? What happens when they get a hold of a gun illegally? 

In this advertisement, the woman has a restraining order against her ex-husband. If he were going to follow laws, wouldn’t he have obeyed the law stating that he is not allowed to come near her? A piece of paper and a phone call to the police does nothing but create a false sense of hope and ultimately leaves women in these situations defenseless. 

Everytown has made it clear on multiple occasions that their main target is women. They want women to feel less vulnerable, like they are no longer at risk of being a victim to violent criminals. Yet, what did this video show you? This advertisement PROVES that the anti-gun policies that Everytown stands behind are actually making women MORE vulnerable. Let’s say he didn’t have a gun. Do you honestly think he wouldn’t have come crashing through the same door with a different weapon of choice? And then what would she do? Guns aren’t the problem in this situation, it’s the criminal who is intending to do great harm. 

Now, in either case, what would have it been like if the woman had a gun? Wouldn’t she have been able to protect her and her son the second her crazed ex-husband came banging on the door? But of course they don’t want to advertise for that!

Ladies, if you don’t want to feel vulnerable then get a gun. Making more laws is not going to help you, it will actually just make things worse. If you’re for equality, then put yourself on offense with EQUAL force. What’s a restraining order and a call to the police going to do when someone confronts you with a weapon? Absolutely nothing.

Have There REALLY Been 74 Mass School Shootings Since Newtown?

If you have been doing as little as surfing the web these past few days, I am sure you’ve stumbled across liberal media claiming that there have been 74 school shootings since Newtown. I found this a little hard to believe so I started doing some searching of my own to check the facts (which apparently people don’t do anymore).

Everytown school shootings

My first find was a journalist by the name of Charles Johnson, who has been looking at the underlying data to support Mom’s Demand Action’s claims.

Second find: Even CNN determined that the number is more like 15. Which I don’t know if Mom’s Demand Action can count but that is WAY off from 75. CNN! A well-known liberal news source!

So much for 74 shootings. Does Mayor Bloomberg care about his credibility at all? Why is no one fighting these false claims made by founder of Mom’s Demand Action, Shannon Watts, and Erika Soto Lamb from Everytown? Why are we allowing people to continually supply the media with deceitful and false information? Worst thing is, people are buying into it!

Now I wouldn’t go as far as to say these incidents are/were fake because they happened. However, comparing a suicide, an accidental firing, or a non-fatal shot to the Newtown shooting is not the same BUT they want you to THINK it is.

I reblogged this article because it goes deeper into each shooting that these gun control groups keep using to manipulate public opinion.

The death toll for all of these shootings combined compares to the average weekend in Chicago at 31 fatalities. Of those thirty one lost lives ten were non-students who were found/killed on school property after hours , eight were suicides , three were the perpetrators themselves and one was a criminal killed in self-defense which leaves nine students and/or teachers killed . 

It goes without saying that any loss of life is a tragedy but at the same time it is just as unseemly to dishonestly climb atop the graves of these unfortunate lost souls and attempt to gain cheap political points in order to further one’s personal agenda and that is what is taking place here .

    Bloomberg and his allies , like the progressives in general , are attempting to tug at the heartstrings and push their legislative goals wrapped as a moral imperative that is not to be questioned under pain of being called uncaring . It’s just another card out of the “racist” deck cavalry . Whenever they are losing an argument on the merits they jump up , knock the cards from the table and cry “have you no decency” ?

Just an aside before we leave you . The number of children that die at the hands of their parents every year in America dwarves the numbers above . Yes , you read correctly . It is estimated that somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 children under the age of five are killed each year by their parents. Think about that before deciding that school shootings are some sort of epidemic 

What do you think? Should all 74 incidents be consider “mass school shootings”?
