Pity the anti-gun zealots. Actually, no I don’t. I am glad they are hitting every pothole on the road to the future.
First, Sarah Brady dies, reducing the number of bloody shirts they can wave. One less deceptive liar in the world. And one less straw-purchaser of firearms, too! Don’t lie for the other guy, honey, even if he is your son.
Then they get slapped with a Pew poll that confirms their utter failure in convincing the American public to believe their lies:
“Exactly two years after President Obama’s bid for gun control following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting died in Congress, a new poll has discovered a huge shift in public opinion to backing Second Amendment gun rights and away from controlling gun ownership.
The reason: Americans now believe having a gun is the best way to protect against crime, 63 percent to 30 percent.
Pew Research Center found that while support for gun control once reached 66 percent, it has dropped to 46 percent while support for gun rights has jumped 52 percent, the highest ever in the past 25 years.”
Read it all. There is an excellent chart showing the steady erosion of support for gun control since 1993, and a commensurate increase in support for gun rights over the same period. Excellent work, gun-grabbers! Keep it up!
And finally, an attempt to conceal the anti-gun nature of a benefit concert fails, and Tim “Wal-Mart Cowboy” McGraw is outed as a Fudd. Complete with an “I’m a gun owner, but…” statement.
The opening act, Billy Currington, was smart enough to realize that an anti-gun position is unwise for a country music star to take, and backed out. Maybe this is why:
Worse still, 11 of the Sandy Hook victim’s families have come out to say that while the concert is purportedly to benefit “Sandy Hook Promise”, they aren’t actually benefiting from it! Well who does benefit? “…the concert proceeds and donations all support the nonprofit organization and its work to prevent gun violence.”
Can’t weasel out of that, Timmy!
I can’t wait to see how the gun-grabbers screw up next…
