Everytown, Demanding Moms Fizzle In Atlanta

One would think that if you were the head of a group that has access to untold millions of dollars from a crazed billionaire willing to spend it, you could at least put together a protest that isn’t a complete embarrassment.

But one would be wrong. 

Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown and Demanding Moms once again boasted of the protest they were going to hold at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Atlanta, Ga., saying “thousands” would attend. And once again, it was much ado about nothing. In the end, according to those providing security for the event, the “massive protest” drew only about 75 people to a venue more than a half mile away from where about 80,000 NRA members were enjoying themselves at the Georgia World Congress center. 

Now which of those gatherings sounds like a “grassroots” movement to you?

Off-Duty Officer Stops Vicious Dog Attack

When the Slatington, Pa., police chief, on a day off of work, heard a dog was viciously attacking a neighbor, he jumped into action.

According to a report in The Morning Call, Chief David Rachman heard neighbors calling for help, so grabbed his personal handgun from his vehicle and ran toward the cries. When he got there, a dog was standing over the bloody, motionless body of a woman who had obviously suffered a severe attach. 

When the dog started attacking the woman again, the police chief fired twice, hitting the dog and sending it fleeing. The victim of the attack, 32-year-old Lisa Green, later died at a nearby hospital. The dog, which was owned by the victim, was later euthanized.
