Bloomberg’s Everytown, Demanding Moms in Turmoil

posted on May 13, 2017

“Two beliefs unite nearly all gun-control supporters: Background checks save lives, and Shannon Watts is a self-promoting tyrant.” That statement comes from a source close to Everytown for Gun Safety, a group that is reportedly in turmoil over Watts.

According to an article in The Daily Caller, gun control activists describe Watts as a “nightmare” who is running staffers off at both Everytown and Moms Demand Action, a subsidiary group. Both are funded by anti-gun zealot Michael Bloomberg.

Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action, doesn’t work for Everytown but serves as an advisory board member. Yet her presence is being linked to the recently announced departures of the managing director and deputy organizing director. This comes on the heels of more Everytown exits in 2016.

In the midst of this upheaval, Everytown is doing what they do best—spinning the facts. “This fake news is the result of how we are effectively providing a counter to the extremist leadership of the NRA,” a spokeswoman laughably suggested. For their part, the NRA provided this response:

111 pro-gun pieces of legislation pending;
34 failed gun control bills;
28 pro-gun state bills signed into law;
7 pro-gun bills on governor’s desks;
1 gun control bill signed into law.
