Moms Demand Action is grasping at straws during this pandemic, but their cronies are getting dirty

Updated: May 20, 2020

Yesterday, Moms Demand Action published this:

While NRA Board MembersUse the Pandemicto Further Racist Narratives, Spread Conspiracy Theories, and Dismiss the Seriousness of Coronavirus, the NRA isFear Mongeringto Sell Guns
As Americans shelter in place to flatten the curve of coronavirus, the NRA is fear mongering about the pandemic to sow division and sell guns. Last Friday, the NRA released a video urging Americans to buy guns to protect themselves during the coronavirus pandemic, saying, “You might be stockpiling up on food right now to get through this current crisis. But if you aren’t preparing to defend your property when everything goes wrong, you’re really just stockpiling for somebody else.” 

“Racist Narratives”? Really???? The video linked in MDA’s article is this!

How is a disabled African American woman who took the actions to protect herself “racist”?

Further, Americans are buying firearms to protect their home due to uncertainty in a crisis situation. Fact is, Moms Demand Action’s allies are attempting to enact BS “emergency declarations” to stop firearm sales during the pandemic. One famous example is in Champaign, Illinois, in which the city council gave the mayor the power to ban the sale/transfer of firearms and ammo. Mom-At-Arms obtained emails via FOIA proving that the mayor is a Bloomberg (MDA) stooge as well.

It’s not just small towns allied with Bloomberg/MDA that are doing this though. San Jose, California ordered gun stores closed:

SAN JOSE — As Bay Area business owners navigated the labyrinthine rules of the sweeping shelter-in-place order implemented Monday, many gun dealers across the region opted to stay open this week, amid a spike in sales apparently driven by fears over the coronavirus pandemic.
But after customers lined up around gun stores in several counties Tuesday — including outside the Bullseye Bishop in San Jose — San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo declared that “gun stores are non-essential.”
“We are having panic buying right now for food,” Liccardo said Wednesday. “The one thing we cannot have is panic buying of guns.”

Sounds like a personal opinion, does it not? Should come as no surprise:

States are also purposely stopping background checks, such as New Jersey:

Gov. Phil Murphy’s executive order to close all non-essential retail business has forced gun dealers, who were experiencing a spike in sales amid the anxiety surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, to shut down.
On Saturday, the online service used to process background checks for firearm dealers, the New Jersey National Instant Criminal Background Check System, told stores they can no longer process requests.
