    Default We Were All Wrong - Moms Demand Action Is Pro Gun

    Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America's Agenda Revealed. Again. Still. | The Truth About Guns

    "Q: Is your group anti-gun?

    A: We are not; many of our moms are gun owners. We believe that you have the right to protect yourself with a weapon if that’s what you choose to do. I don’t (choose to) because the data shows that a gun in your house is more likely to be used against you or by one of your family members to commit suicide. I have five children that I don’t want to run that risk with. But that’s absolutely someone’s right."


    There now, I feel better already.

    i'm not buying it. They know its very unpopular to label yourself "anti-gun". So they purposely say garbage like these so we under-estimate them. Make me a sammich is what i say to them.

    The data also shows that:
    A criminal who breaks into your home can hurt your family, these days, sometimes even for fun.
    If you have your firearms in a safe nobody can get to them other than you when is needed.
    If you have some decent training in emergency handling and firearms your home and family will be a lot safer.

    And finally, if you are hopeless and cannot hold a job you might not have the little wisdom necessary
    to consider any of the above then in this case it might be wise also to stay away from firearms but also
    engaging on any activity where some caution and minimal intelligence is needed like driving a muscle car or
    operating any dangerous machinery.

    This really is nothing new. None of these groups are anti-gun, they all believe in the rights granted to us in the 2nd Amendment. They only wish to ensure that everything is done in a safe and secure manner. They want to ensure that all of society is safe from "the wrong people". Cuomo, Obama, Shummer and the rest of them have all stated that they are pro-2nd!

    So, if someone wants to commit suicide and there is no gun available, they won't?

    Yeah it's impossible to kill yourself without a firearm.... /sarcasm

    but they do make it easier for those that aren't 150% determined.

    remember the "37 times" number of yester year? She still believes that.

    I guess it could be true, if you don't have a gun you are not likely to have it used against you. Of course you are at the mercy of your attackers that way.

    Well to be fair 100% of suicides by gun are done with a gun so statistics are sometimes dead on!

    I think there was a study that concluded this was the biggest affect of the Brady Bill, it reduced the number of suicides by men over 55 with a firearm. The crux of the data was, the rate did not change only the implement used.

    Do also not another favorite is: gun owners who keep guns in the home are (x) times more likely to be injured or killed by a gun. Certainly, why not pool owners are more likely to have a child drown than non pool owners. People who ride in cars are more likely to be injured or killed in one than people who don't ride in cars.... its all a game.

    They're not anti-gun. They just think YOU shouldn't have one, unless you are police or military.

    Spewing the same tired old crap. Not for nothing, but if someone did manage to wrestle your gun away and use it against you, it's still better than pissing your pants and vomiting on yourself and "hope" that your attacker goes away. Stop fostering the victim mentality and stand up for yourself for gods sake.

    Moms demand action:

    Clean your room.
    Eat your spinach.
    Do your homework.
    Don't pick your nose.
    Wear clean underwear.

    SHE IS NOT MY MOTHER, NOR THE MOTHER OF MY CHILDREN.
