Can’t make this up:
JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KMOX)-Among those closely watching the special legislative session on violent crime that starts in Jefferson City today, are members of Mom's Demand Action. for Gun Sense in America.
local volunteer Becky Morgan says while they're glad Governor Parson called the session, they're disappointed there are no gun safety measures on the agenda. Parson says there's not enough time to deal with gun-related proposals during a special session. Morgan says that's just kicking the can down the road. "Always putting it off and putting off, when are we going to address this?" she says. "If we never address it, people keep getting killed and unfortunately lot of them tend to be, we're seeing little kids getting shot and killed."
One thing the legislature can do during the session, Morgan says, is withdraw more of the money it has available in the Victims of Crime Act fund (VOCA). She tells KMOX that if the state used ten percent, or $4 million, from the state's annual allotment to help crime victims, it could prevent them from being victimized again, arming themselves or seeking retaliation. "By directing funding to those victim services that are available to us, states like Missouri and our cities can invest in our communities and prevent future gun violence."
Watts (their Bloomberg bankrolled founder) even highlighted this:
Can you believe it?!?!?!? I do. If there are less victims (or repeat victims), they don’t get to exploit them and try and recruit them for their cause. Moms Demand‘s Becky Morgan even stated they want to protect the criminal:

Obviously “seek retaliation“ by hunting down the bad guy and shooting them is against the law, but it really appears they care more about the bad guy’s life rather than the victim‘s, which is why they don’t want them armed in the first place. What demographics are most vulnerable to be victims or repeat victims?
The disabled have much higher rates of violent crime.
People perceived as “vulnerable” are victimized more. This applies to mixed-race couples (well documented by the literature), the LGBT community, the elderly as it pertains to fraud or burglary, immigrants, victims of abuse (i.e., human trafficking), repeat victims of violent crime, and others, Crime and The Disabled.
Can’t have disabled people, legal immigrants, or the LGBT community getting armed now, can we? That’s one reason why MDA tries to make allies with organizations in said communities (need those recruits!). Don’t bother calling the police for help either, as Moms Demand Action is now anti-cop as well. The only solution is to remain disarmed and help them with their agenda.
In regards to the VOCA funds mentioned in the article, we got ahead of that in March before Everytown‘s plans were made public by FOIA’ing the City of Champaign, Illinois over their “stopping gun sales“ stunt due to COVID-19:
What are your thoughts? Is this really the best approach to “gun violence“? Personally, I feel that victims of violent crime (especially in high crime areas) should be encouraged to adapt the best tool for self defense possible, not for left-wing astroturf groups to push for them to be disarmed via using federal money (your tax dollars) for local jurisdictions to enact programs paid for by grants aimed to make it more difficult for them to own a gun. Hell, they even are using tax revenue from legal drug sales to fund their disarmament agenda. Head to the dispensary and smoke up, Jimmy!
