The media has quietly begun to publicize dubious insinuations that America’s views on gun control are evolving, with new gun control groups popping up — well funded, loud, and determined. “Gun-control Democrats in Virginia running for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general all won despite poor reviews from the National Rifle Association,” claims CNN in a recent piece on the renewed battle over guns. What CNN won’t tell you is that Terry McAuliffe’s victory in Virginia had nothing to do with guns and everything to do with the dishonest, morally corrupt campaign he ran, in which he and his operatives successfully made the election about the so-called “war on women,” compelling thousands of Virginians to run out and vote with their plumbing, rather than with their brains.
While gun grabbers crow about the Democratic sweep in Virginia as a possible turning of the tide, their efforts to create new mega-gun grabber organizations to rival groups such as NRA, JPFO, Second Amendment Foundation and Gun Owners of America are laughable and pathetic. Michael Bloomberg’s new group is supposed to serve as an umbrella organization for his other groups: Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, and it plans to borrow from the NRA playbook by building strong grassroots support and lobbying effectively.
