Moms Demand Action: Gun Reform Is Dead; Long Live Gun Reform


By Jueseppi B.




Gun Reform Is Dead; Long Live Gun Reform


by Moms Demand Action


By Shannon Watts, Founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense In America via Huffington Post


The gun lobby has been virtually unopposed for an entire generation and it has taken decades for them to lead us to the edge of this cultural cliff. Now it is up to grassroots movements like Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America to pull us back from the precipice.
- Shannon Watts, Founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense In America





Just hours after 13 Americans were shot and killed on a military base in our nation’s capital, reporters and pundits began speculating that gun reform was dead. Headlines across the country, including the Chicago Tribune and Washington Post, could be summarized as: “No One Cares Anymore. Gun Reform is Dead in America.” Four days later, after another mass shooting, this time in Chicago, media again signaled, “It’s Hopeless. Give Up.”


And on Meet the Press, host David Gregory had the temerity to ask Wayne LaPierre, president and CEO of the country’s strongest gun lobby, if he thought interest in gun regulation was waning. What did Gregory think LaPierre would say? “No, no, it’s actually just beginning and we’re terrified of the grassroots movements that have sprung up since Newtown”…?


Why are American media so intent on reporting straight from the gun lobby’s playbook after every mass shooting? It is time for American reporters to do their jobs and ask elected officials why they continue to ignore the majority of the American public who want common-sense gun reform. And we, as a nation, must refuse to buy into their fatalistic predictions.


When members of the House tried to repeal Obamacare and failed the first time, did the press hail it as a death knell for the opposition? How about the twentieth time? The fortieth? I don’t remember seeing those headlines. Does a lack of support for immigration reform this year mean it will never happen? Of course not. Because just like every other social crisis our country has faced, America will eventually do the right thing.


In 1952, Reader’s Digest published “Cancer by the Carton,” an article detailing the dangers of tobacco that hugely impacted how Americans viewed smoking. But due to strong opposition from the tobacco lobby, it still took more than 40 years for the Federal Drug Administration to step in and regulate tobacco products. Fast-forward to 2013, and state laws and legal precedents now hold manufacturers liable for the effects of their products.


Any significant and worthwhile legislation passed in our country’s history, regardless of what party controlled Congress, has been a multi-year process, including civil rights, women’s rights, health care reform, drunk driving laws, LGBT rights, and the list goes on.


As the founder of a growing grassroots movement of American moms started just nine months ago, the day after the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre, I can assure you that not a single one of the 100,000 moms I work with across the country every day is feeling defeated. In fact, many American moms are just waking up to epidemic of gun violence in America. We are just coming to realize how lax our federal and state laws are, courtesy of the gun lobby.


Yes, I understand that Congress failed to pass background checks by six votes in April, even though the majority of the Senate supported the bill. And yes, two state legislators who supported gun reform were successfully recalled due to a gun lobby campaign earlier this month in Colorado, even though the sweeping legislation still stands.


What the press isn’t reporting on is that the same week of the recalls in Colorado, two huge state legislative battles were won in California and Missouri. In California, some of the strictest state gun laws were passed by the assembly, including an expanded semi-automatic weapons ban. In Missouri, two brave Republican legislators stood up and refused to override the governor’s veto of insane legislation that would have nullified federal gun laws, allowed machine guns to be sold, allowed armed volunteers in schools, and lowered the age for concealed carry.


Other wins just this year include the election of anti-NRA candidate Congresswoman Robin Kelly of Illinois and pro-gun reform Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts; the Senate confirmation of the first Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms director in nearly a decade; and Starbucks, a worldwide business icon, just reversed its gun policy and announced last week that guns are “no longer welcome in our stores.”


No one said this would be an easy fight. No one said it would be quick. Newtown was a watershed event, and you can’t expect to reverse 30 years of gun lobby influence in nine months. The gun lobby has been virtually unopposed for an entire generation and it has taken decades for them to lead us to the edge of this cultural cliff. Now it is up to grassroots movements like Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America to pull us back from the precipice.


At the White House on Tuesday after the Navy Yard mass shooting, an Associated Press reporter said President Obama’s response to the shootings was “subdued” and asked if “maybe there’s some sort of numbness among the public since these shootings have happened so frequently.” Another reporter asked if there’s “an exhaustion and an acceptance that this is the new normal.”


The story these reporters are missing is that not only are we not numb, we are awake for the first time. I can confidently report from the frontlines of this cause that the massive effort to reform our country’s gun laws, policies and, ultimately, our gun-saturated culture, is just beginning.

E.N.O.U.G.H. stands for Empowering Non-violent Opposition to Unnecessary Guns in Homes. The Enough Campaign is a grassroots movement founded in CT in response to the events in Newtown in December, 2012. We have had ENOUGH and are standing for change.

ENOUGH stands for Empowering Non-violent Opposition to Unnecessary Guns in Homes. The grass-roots non-profit is based in Connecticut and was established in response to the horrific mass shooting in neighboring Newton. The organization is working hard to encourage fellow American citizens to stand up and demand common sense gun laws that will keep our communities safe. Enough is ENOUGH. Please visit their website and get involved. http://www.theENOUGHcampaign.com






ENOUGH March For Change.mov


Published on Jan 25, 2013

We have had ENOUGH of the gun violence. Join us as we March For Change in Hartford on Feb 14, 2013 on the 2 month anniversary of Newtown. Stand with us as we show our legislators that we have had ENOUGH. Demand safe gun laws.






Our Mission

The mission of The ENOUGH Campaign is to protect our families and our country as we advocate for more public awareness on the issues of gun violence prevention in America. Through legislative advocacy and community education, we champion stronger gun laws and aim to transform public perceptions of gun safety.


We demand:

  1. An immediate ban on the sale of assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips.
  2. A federal law requiring a criminal and mental health background check on every single weapon sold in America.
  3. That gun trafficking be declared a federal crime.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to motivate people in great numbers to challenge the current gun laws and to keep the common sense gun law conversation alive.

Our Vision

We envision peaceful neighborhoods and safer communities across the country, free from military-style automatic weapons. We believe American families should be able to live their lives free from the fear spawned by an epidemic of gun violence that plagues our country.

Our Story

ENOUGH was started immediately in the aftermath of Sandy Hook by concerned mothers in the Connecticut area around Newtown.


That horrible day taught us that real, meaningful change to our gun control laws is not going to happen unless outraged Americans like us make their voices heard. If we don’t speak up, then we should expect another Sandy Hook. And for mothers, that thought is simply unacceptable.


ENOUGH began as a group of outraged mothers, but we are now comprised of fathers, aunts, uncles and anyone else who agrees that we must act now to control guns if we want to make a safer America for our children.


ENOUGH stands for “Empowering Nonviolent Opposition to Unnecessary Guns in Homes.” By “unnecessary”, we specifically mean assault weapons. We’re not attacking anyone’s right to own a weapon. What we are demanding is tighter control over the types of weapons we can own, and how those weapons are obtained.


Please join us in demanding that our legislators take action. Visit the rest of the site to learn who your legislators are, how you can contact them, and forms that you can use in your communication.



Act Now

It’s time to take a stand. Demand that your legislators stop hiding behind “complexity” of the issue, and fear of the gun lobby. Tell your legislators that they will lose your support unless they take action to curb gun violence in America. These links will help you find the right people, and connect to them easily through email, social media like Facebook and Twitter, and the phone.

To find your members of congress:



Also, learn the platform advanced by Mayors Against Illegal Guns at www.demandaplan.org. It’s direct, and would be a huge first step towards meaningful change.



Demand A Plan


From Salon.com ”At the heels of a jaw-dropping press conference in which NRA vice president Wayne LaPierre called for ending gun violence by using more guns, Demand a Plan has released a PSA studded with Hollywood’s elite, demanding a (hopefully better) plan to end gun violence:”

NRAsshole Public Service Announcement: The 2nd Amendment IS Safe!!

The George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston is prepared for the annual convention of the National Rifle Assn. The event, which begins Friday, is expected to draw more than 70,000 people. (Johnny Hanson / Associated Press / May 1, 2013)
By Molly Hennessy-FiskeMay 3, 2013



HOUSTON — The National Rifle Assn.’s annual convention begins in earnest Friday in Houston, with leaders who have spent the year defending the group in the wake of mass shootings emboldened by the recent defeat of federal gun control legislation and ready to rally around this year’s theme: “Stand and Fight.”


“If you are an NRA member, you deserve to be proud,” Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s chief executive wrote to members last week, saying they “exemplify everything that’s good and right about America.”


On Friday afternoon, LaPierre is scheduled to appear at the convention with a panel of political leaders who have championed gun rights, including former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin (who some tea party advocates are hoping will make a run for the Senate), Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (also a tea party favorite), Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.


LaPierre will address the membership again Saturday before a “Stand and Fight” rally.


More than 70,000 people from across the country and abroad are expected to attend the three-day event at Houston’s downtown convention center drawn by, among other things, a gun trade show, youth day, firearms classes and a speech by rocker and NRA ally Ted Nugent.


“It is on track to be the largest NRA annual meeting ever,” NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam told the Los Angeles Times. “I think a lot of it has to do with the fight that we’re in. People understand that now more than ever they need to come out and support the 2nd Amendment.”


Gun control advocates also planned to flock to the convention center, and Arulanandam said that shouldn’t cause friction.


“That is people exercising their 1st Amendment rights. We respect their 1st  Amendment rights, and we hope they respect our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights,” he said.


Among events gun control groups have planned: a petition drive for expanded background checks of gun purchasers, veterans speaking out against illegal guns, and a vigil near the convention center for victims of gun violence that will start Friday morning and last through Sunday.


The “No More Names” vigil includes the names of those killed in the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., and others who have died since then in gun violence, said Lauren Weiner, a spokeswoman for Washington, D.C.-based Americans United for Change.


When supporters held a similar event last month ahead of the Senate gun control vote, they had collected about 3,300 names, Weiner told The Times.


“We don’t want to add any more names to the list. That’s our goal ideally through passing legislation,” Weiner said.


Among those expected to attend the convention is Erica Lafferty, daughter of slain Sandy Hook principal Dawn Hochsprung. Lafferty has become an outspoken proponent of gun control legislation.


Weiner said the failure of gun control legislation has emboldened rather than demoralized supporters, citing an incident earlier this week in which Lafferty and others confronted  Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) over her vote.


“We look at it as a first step in a process,” Weiner said of the legislation’s defeat. “It has galvanized folks — you’ve seen it in New Hampshire this week. Folks realize that we need to be louder,” particularly relatives of those killed in Newtown.


Kim Russell, national field director for the gun control group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, said their membership grew and donations poured in after the Senate vote (20% of their total donations to date came within 24 hours). They, too, plan to have a presence in Houston.


“That Senate vote was the second alarm. Newtown was the first,” Russell told The Times. “There’s a backlash now.”



Thank you The LA Times.

Wayne LaPierre CPAC 2013 Speech | NRA vice president Wayne LaPierre ” They Call me Crazy ?! ” National Rifle Association (NRA) vice president Wayne LaPierre has been a key figure in America’s gun debate.

In the direct aftermath of the Sandy Hook Massacre, Democrats in various branches of government made a hard push for increased gun control — something they suggest will prevent mass shootings from happening. LaPierre and his allies in the pro-gun community have consistently argued that, when it comes to tragedies like what happened at Newtown, the shooter should be held responsible — not the gun with which he did the deed.

On Friday, LaPierre will speak to CPAC regarding where the gun control debate is headed in 2013. Check out his full speech in the video below.

NRAsshole Wayne LaPierre’s Op-Ed On Stand And Fight…..


By Jueseppi B.






First of all the Daily Caller is a piece of feces publication that uses fear and loathing of people of different cultures to stroke the NRAsshole mindset of fear and loathing against people of different cultures.


So here are a few excerpts from NRAsshole Executive Vice President, Wayne “Arm Our Babies” LaPierre…..



Stand and Fight


02/13/2013 By Wayne LaPierre


Before I tell you how the NRA and our members are going to Stand And Fight politically and in the courts, let’s acknowledge that all over this country, tens of millions of Americans are already preparing to Stand And Fight to protect their families and homes.


These good Americans are prudently getting ready to protect themselves.


It has always been sensible for good citizens to own and carry firearms for lawful protection against violent criminals who prey on decent people.


During the second Obama term, however, additional threats are growing. Latin American drug gangs have invaded every city of significant size in the United States. Phoenix is already one of the kidnapping capitals of the world, and though the states on the U.S./Mexico border may be the first places in the nation to suffer from cartel violence, by no means are they the last.


The president flagrantly defies the 2006 federal law ordering the construction of a secure border fence along the entire Mexican border. So the border today remains porous not only to people seeking jobs in the U.S., but to criminals whose jobs are murder, rape, robbery and kidnapping. Ominously, the border also remains open to agents of al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations. Numerous intelligence sources have confirmed that foreign terrorists have identified the southern U.S. border as their path of entry into the country.


When the next terrorist attack comes, the Obama administration won’t accept responsibility. Instead, it will do what it does every time: blame a scapegoat and count on Obama’s “mainstream” media enablers to go along.


A heinous act of mass murder—either by terrorists or by some psychotic who should have been locked up long ago—will be the pretext to unleash a tsunami of gun control.


No wonder Americans are buying guns in record numbers right now, while they still can and before their choice about which firearm is right for their family is taken away forever.


After Hurricane Sandy, we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia. Looters ran wild in south Brooklyn. There was no food, water or electricity. And if you wanted to walk several miles to get supplies, you better get back before dark, or you might not get home at all.


Anti-gun New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg had already done everything he could to prevent law-abiding New Yorkers from owning guns, and he has made sure that no ordinary citizen will ever be allowed to carry a gun. He even refused to allow the National Guard into the city to restore civil order because Guardsmen carry guns!


Meanwhile, President Obama is leading this country to financial ruin, borrowing over a trillion dollars a year for phony “stimulus” spending and other payoffs for his political cronies. Nobody knows if or when the fiscal collapse will come, but if the country is broke, there likely won’t be enough money to pay for police protection. And the American people know it.


Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Riots. Terrorists. Gangs. Lone criminals. These are perils we are sure to face—not just maybe. It’s not paranoia to buy a gun. It’s survival. It’s responsible behavior, and it’s time we encourage law-abiding Americans to do just that.


Since the election, millions of Americans have been lining up in front of gun stores, Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops exercising their freedom while they still have it. They are demonstrating they have a mass determination to buy, own and use firearms. Millions of Americans are using market forces like never before to demonstrate their ardent support for our firearm freedoms. That’s one of the very best ways we can Stand And Fight.


Inevitably, the anti-gun media and the gun-ban lobbies are demonizing the purchase of firearms. They call us “extremists” because we wonder whether we will be able to buy a semi-auto in three years or, even in some states, later this year. That’s despite the fact that President Obama long ago made clear that he wants to ban them all!


The media try to make rank-and-file Americans feel guilty about buying a gun. The enemies of freedom demonize gun buyers and portray us as social lepers. But we know the truth. We know that responsible gun ownership exemplifies what is good and right about America.


Responsible Americans realize that the world as we know it has changed. We, the American people, clearly see the daunting forces we will undoubtedly face: terrorists, crime, drug gangs, the possibility of Euro-style debt riots, civil unrest or natural disaster.


Gun owners are not buying firearms because they anticipate a confrontation with the government. Rather, we anticipate confrontations where the government isn’t there—or simply doesn’t show up in time.


To preserve the inalienable, individual human right to keep and bear arms—to withstand the siege that is coming—the NRA is building a four-year communications and resistance movement. The enemies of the Second Amendment will be met with unprecedented defiance, commitment and determination. We will Stand And Fight.


First, we are going to devise legal capability like never before. I fervently hope that President Obama does not get to appoint another anti-gun Supreme Court justice like Sonia Sotomayor or Elena Kagan. But he probably will, and we must meet that challenge. His chances of appointing a replacement for one of the five pro-rights justices in the 5-4 Heller and McDonald majorities are high. And there’s no doubt he is going to appoint a huge number of new judges to lifetime positions in the lower federal courts.



Read the rest of this garbage, if you so desire, on Page 2 & Page 3 of the Daily Caller.



Thank you Daily Caller, for your continued publishing of garbage opinions such as this one from Wayne LaPierre.



The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good man with a pen………and the power to stop assault weapons and handguns from killing out American citizens……….

1,862 Americans fatally shot since Newtown.


More than 1,862, actually. In 60 days.


That averages out to 29 people a day. On Christmas, 30 Americans were killed by guns. On New Year’s Day, it was 58. On Martin Luther King Day, 28. Last Thursday was a good day — only 13 Americans were shot to death that day.
