We’ve all seen what Dr. Rager-Kay said by now (if not, click the link) and that she was backed by Moms Demand Action (and a Pennsylvania gun control group) when she ran for office not too long ago. So, knowing what she said, what makes a “gun sense“ or “anti-gun violence“ candidate/person?
Moms Demand Action’s Gun Sense is as such:
PATRIOTIC We can protect our communities from gun violence while still protecting the Second Amendment.
COMMON-SENSE Guns should be kept out of the hands of dangerous people like domestic abusers and convicted criminals.
Speaks for itself. She seems to qualify as “dangerous”. Responsible gun owners know that using deadly force is no joke and not to be taken lightly, even kiddingly in a statement and especially not as a threat. That’s “common sense”.
NON-PARTISAN Ending gun violence isn't a red or blue issue. Protecting lives from gun violence will require the leadership of all Americans -- regardless of party.
Find a Republican (especially since MDA’s main financial backer is bankrolling the DNC).
RATIONAL We reject the lies and misinformation of the Washington gun lobby. We support common-sense policies that have been proven to help save lives.
Lies and misinformation? Their founder is a pro at that (and gets caught).
POPULAR An overwhelming majority of Americans support common-sense gun safety laws -- and record numbers of them are casting their ballots based on whether politicians support them, too.
Buying elections to get your agenda doesn’t mean that the “overwhelming majority” support you. Look at Virginia:
In conclusion, a “gun sense” candidate/person is someone who doesn’t practice what the preach, gets over emotional and threatens violence with guns, is a Democrat, is ok with lying to get ahead if it benefits them/their democratic candidate, and most of all, is perfectly fine with big money buying elections and causing an uproar in states where people don’t want their snake oil.
Are you “gun sense”?
