Newtown Families Back Away From Sandy Hook Promise

Tim McGraw has the right to fundraise for Sandy Hook Promise, but he might wisely take a cue from 11 Sandy Hook families who have “distanced themselves” from the group. As NBC Connecticut reports, SHP “is at times wrongly assumed to speak for all 26 victims’ families.”

Indications abound that SHP is a gun-control group. Their website states “... None of these actions affect constitutional rights, though … there are sensible things that we need to do to improve gun safety.” Sensible to whom, we wonder? Then, there are “stats” from rabid anti-gunner Dr. Arthur Kellermann of flawed gun-violence study fame, and the urging to educate children about firearms safety, but no nod to the NRA’s Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program.

Then there is the continued, disingenuous conflation of “gun violence” statistics where homicides are added to suicides. You can bet the professional “antis” are in the game, and real solutions further away.
