Sharpton Group Demands Task Force For Gun Control

posted on September 3, 2015

The National Action Network, a lobbying organization founded by the stridently anti-gun Rev. Al Sharpton—and implicated with him in claims of exploiting companies for donations by threatening damaging boycotts—held a press conference this week in front of the State House in Columbia, S.C. The group announced that there have been 51 homicides this year in the tri-county area, constituting a “state of emergency.” 

The group requested that Gov. Nikki Haley form a task force for the specific purpose of “… track[ing] where these guns are coming from.” While the National Action Network largely confined its focus to illegal firearms, we will be watching to see how soon the narrative will shift to comprehensive gun control. Sharpton could use a win after his big push for tighter gun regulations spectacularly backfired in Chicago in December 2013.
