A concerted effort by gun-ban advocates in the U.S. Congress to launch a “Twitterstorm” pushing for further action on gun control has apparently backfired.
The campaign was designed to use social media starting at 12:30 p.m. Eastern time with the hashtag #GunVote, in hopes of forcing a vote from House Speaker Paul Ryan. What the anti-gun tweeters got, instead, was a pro-gun Twitter movement like they never expected. They didn’t count on Second Amendment supporters using the hashtag to tell the truth about gun ownership.
It’s not too late to get your Twitter on and get involved in the fun. Send a message to the anti-gun manipulators: We don’t need another meaningless #GunVote or gun control, we need #ElitistControl.
