In the aftermath of the horrific tragedy during the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where one woman was killed after a car appeared to ram into a crowd of counter protesters, astroturfing gun controllers decided to blame gun control laws for the melee.
Michael Bloomberg’s’ failed gun control organizations Moms Demand and Everytown, claimed Virginia’s gun laws were to blame for the violence.
“The complications of such policies are on display today in Charlottesville as white supremacists openly carry loaded guns. Not only does this make the job of law enforcement more difficult by blurring the lines of lawful gun owners and those intent on doing harm, but it also drives intimidation and fear,” Everytown said in a statement.
Funny, since no guns were used in any crimes and the police were told to “stand down” by the left-wing mayor of Charlottesville, Wes Bellamy.
This was confirmed by the ACLU according to multiple reports “who quoted a police source saying, “We’ll not intervene until given command to do so.”
So, while the violence seemed to get out of control, the cops stood there and did nothing because that’s what they were told to do.
Of course, that doesn’t stop nimrods like Shannon R. Watts from trying to push gun control:
As hate crimes also appear to be on the rise, it remains far too easy for hateful people – even those convicted of certain hate crimes – to obtain guns. Under federal law, many hate crime convictions do not currently make someone ineligible for gun ownership,” the Everytown statement said.
“With public attention on what is happening in Charlottesville, it’s important to understand the troubling reality of open-carry and what happens when guns fall into hate-filled hands.
Again, there was not one incident reported that involved a person using a firearm to commit an act of violence.
Maybe Moms Demand should start demanding cars be banned?

Bloomberg’s harpies are lying, as usual. They don’t want to ‘disarm hate,’ they want to disarm EVERYONE because THEY hate firearms and freedom.
Where were these cranks when Black Lives Matter and Antifa were rioting and committing acts of violence? That’s right, nowhere to be found because they are just another arm of the left so they support the hatred and violence of these two groups.
So, now it’s clear, not only are Moms Demand and Everytown against the 2nd Amendment but they are clearly also against the 1st Amendment. Good to know.
It shows how useless Bloomberg’s organizations have actually become across the country. It’s one thing when they lie about the made-up term “gun violence” (other than in the inner cities of course, they ignore those places) but to infuse gun control when there were no crimes involving guns shows how batsh*t crazy they have truly become.
Of course, left wingers like Shannon R. Watts and others never let a tragedy go to waste. Before the blood is even dry, they are out waving around the corpses of victims to promote their cause, no matter how disturbing and mentally dysfunctional it makes them appear.
There will always be some nutcases on the left who will join along in the nonsensical kumbaya of enabling criminals while disarming law-abiding citizens who seek to protect themselves from said criminals.
