Florida “Demanding Moms” Side With Convicted Killer

posted on August 17, 2016

We told you on Saturday about Gary Lynn Durham, a Florida man who served 11 years in prison for beating a man to death in a road rage incident, only to be killed by an armed citizen shortly after his release. It seems Durham was already crossways with another driver, but this time the innocent victim was better prepared to protect himself from harm.

Incredibly enough, the Florida chapter of the Michael Bloomberg-funded Demanding Moms group sided with Durham, immediately tweeting after seeing a headline about the incident, “We do not have to live this way. #NotOneMore.” To them, you see, the words “road rage” and “shooting” used together in a headline automatically meant an innocent victim had been gunned down in the streets, so they wasted no time in trying to exploit the incident to push for more restrictive gun-control laws. 

Truth is, however, this attack made just the opposite case from what the Demanding Moms want everyone to believe—armed good guys do stop armed bad guys, no matter what gun-ban advocates claim.
