Moms Demand Action Misses The Point Again

I am not going to say that the members of Moms Demand Action have bad intentions. I’m sure that most of the ladies involved with this organization really want to make a positive difference in the world. The problem is that they don’t understand the way violence (and stopping violence) works in the real world.

You see, Moms Demand Action believes that the guns commit the crimes, not the people firing the guns. Which is about as backward an idea as you can have. Don’t believe me? Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action recently Tweeted after an illegal immigrant (who had been deported five times already) was convicted of murder:

The best way to honor  and protect the hundreds of Americans who are shot and killed or injured every day in America is to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. Why are we more upset that she was shot by an immigrant than that she was shot and killed???

[hat tip to here for the source]

Of course, other people had an immediate response. Justin T. Hawkins of the Heartland Institute Tweeted back:

With all due respect, please just take the night off. The gun was STOLEN. It was STOLEN. Stolen by someone who should never have been here! What does this have to do with gun laws????

See, Watts just doesn’t get it. She thinks that guns are the problem, so, if we get rid of all guns everywhere, then everyone will be nice, and the world will be peaceful. But so many other people like Hawkins know the truth: The shooter found a way to get around gun control laws to commit his crime. The problem is not that there aren’t enough gun laws. The problem is not that guns are too easy to get hold of. The problem is that people with evil intent will circumvent the laws so that they can do evil things.

Moms Demand Action, here is a news flash for you: The problem isn’t guns; the problems is the hearts of men, and no gun control laws can change that.

  1. gun buy buy back was done in my city a few years ago, after it was over a few months later some one in a high ranking office sold those same guns to a few ffl dealers for a higher profit. the guns ended up right back on our streets. if watts thinks guns are the problem, she is really a dumb ass. a gun is only a tool to get the job done, same as a tire iron or lug wrench to change a tire,,,, only a tool. succcccch bumb assssses.

  2. This Watts is one crazy woman, and makes up lies all the time! But it’s all about control, and they work for one of the biggest control freaks in the world, Bloomberg! Remember the size of the soft drinks you could but, and the type food and amount you could buy!! A bunch of sick puppies!!

  3. once again, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. None of these people seem to understand that the 2nd Amendment guarantees the 1st Amendment, A well renown Democrat and President of the United States once said: “By calling attention to a well-regulated militia, the security of the nation, and the right of each citizen to keep and bear arms, our founding forefathers recognize the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although is it extremely unlikely that the fears of government tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains a major declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason, I believe the Second Amendment will always be important”…NRA life member…John F Kennedy…April 1960.
    Note: If JFK were alive today and had made this same statement the liberal Democrats would have had him tarred and feathered and run out of office…So it is with today’s radical liberal Democrats.

  4. All democratic whinney liberal propaganda. Over half were set up by clinton obama gov. To push the issue. Thats why some women need to stay home they honor the liers and cant face facts! Stupid assess!!!8

  5. While seated next to an ATF official at a wedding a few years back, I inquired about his opinion on gun control. His answer was that he was all in favor, stating simply that anyone who pulls the trigger on a firearm should be competent to strike the intended target, at the intended location and nothing else.

  6. There are two problems, first there are people out there that believe they have the right to do as they please, second problem is that too many children are given behavioral modification drugs that we do not understand the long term effects. I believe that this is a part of mental illness, and unless we do something to better understand what is causing all the mental problems, nothing will change.

  7. Kate’s killed was NOT convicted of murder, which is the problem. As for other aspects, ugly or plain looks can be surgically corrected. Self chosen stupidity, as with the conscious ignoring of facts, typified by Moms and similar mobs is beyond the marvels of medicine, as the recognition of reality is required, action that some people are, it seems, unwilling to undertake.

  8. IT was not the gun, that killed the woman IT was the ILLEGAL that killed her it was AN ILLEGAL WHO HAD BEEN DEPORTED NUMEROUS TIMES THAT KILLED HER, But the antigun gun crowd eg PELOSI, FEINSTEIN,GIFFORDS, et al blame an object that had to be operated by a person A PERSON WHO SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN HERE TO BEGIN WITH. BUT THE SANCTUARY STATE OF CALIFORNIA ALLOWED HIM TO BE ON THE STREET AND ULTIMATELY FOUND HIM INNOCENT OF MURDER BUT HELD A PIECE OF IRON AND WOOD OR PLASTIC GUILTY,

  9. People need to understand i am a mother and i do own a gun and i will protect my right and everyone elses right to own one my children are21and22 they own guns and we wil protect our right to do so guns dont kill people people kill people if this moms demand action wants to fight for something let them fight to keep childmolesrs off the streets thats the real danger
