A New Day, A New Campaign

posted on May 16, 2015

Moms Demand Action and Amnesty International have jointly announced yet another campaign to “amplify existing efforts to reduce gun violence in America.” How do we know they’re the usual gun-hating suspects? Easy: They’re the same folks who continue to abuse the legitimate grief of the families of suicide victims and pardon the rampages of serial criminals to fabricate a grossly overstated “gun violence” count: “88 per day,” their website claims.

With typically poor taste and logic, they’ve chosen an odd day for their first event, too—June 2. Theoretically, they are observing the 18th birthday of Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old murdered by two gang members with criminal records only a week after marching in President Obama’s second inaugural parade. Why her killers weren’t already in prison will never come up. Why these groups get a media “pass” on manufactured, bogus statistics is unlikely to be examined, either.
