The Socialists and their donors decided to push gun control and firearms confiscation. That didn’t turn out quite the way they planned. Our culture is changing faster than our politics and our politicians can follow. Public perception is changing more rapidly than polls can record opinions and faster than the media can spin their agenda.
There was a lot of spin. Leftists groups put on a very large public relations presentation. MoveOn and Bloomberg helped pay for it. About 10 percent of the marchers actually were under 18 years old. Most of those were bussed in from Democrat controlled cities. 70 percent of the marchers were women recycled from the Women’s march against Trump. Their average age was 49 years old. 89 percent reported voting for Hillary. Firearms were a secondary issue after their disdain for Trump.
What was sold as a youth movement against violence was really a facelift for old leftists causes. Of course, you didn’t hear that from the mainstream news.
We clearly saw a change in tone from the gun prohibitionists. Gone was the veil of “sensible gun-safety regulation”. Marchers held signs saying “Fuck the NRA” while politicians called the NRA a terrorists organization, (though a unique terrorist organization since crime falls when the NRA convention comes to town.)
There was something strange that didn’t happen, and it was conspicuous by its absence. The FBI failed in several of our recent mass murders, yet I couldn’t find a single sign at the march telling the FBI to do its job. Today, the big-state gun prohibitionists are calling to abolish the second amendment. They want to ban firearms and take them, “Yes, I’ll take them from your cold dead hands.” Big government fascists don’t need to be kind anymore. Not with billionaire bucks funding their media events. They want only the government to have guns, a government that they control.
The rest of us drew very different conclusions after these last mass murders. We noticed the string of government failures.
