It was never exactly a secret that the gun prohibitionist cult Moms Demand Action was “astroturf” (a fake grassroots organization) the moment it was revealed that Moms Demand “founder” Shannon R. Watts was a Democrat public relations executive. The cult “joined” Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) just before having to legally disclose who was funding them. Most suspect that the group was conceived by Michael Bloomberg from the very beginning.

NC Gun Blog’s Sean Sorrentino notes that Mom’s Demand has now even dropped the pretense of being anything other than “beards” for Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns:

Take one billionaire former New York City mayor with a Napoleon complex, dress him in drag, and what do you get? “Moms” Demand Action for Gunsense in America. We’ve already been told that Moms Demand has “merged” with MAIG.But did you know that they’ve finally announced that they are just a “campaign” of MAIG? Here’s their “donate” page. Look closely at how they describe themselves and where they ask you to send the checks.

Indeed, this is the language that appears on the Moms Demand donation form:

Please note that contributions to Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a campaign of Mayors Against Illegal Guns Action Fund, are NOT tax-deductible.

If you prefer, checks made out to Mayors Against Illegal Guns Action Fund may be mailed to:
Mayors Against Illegal Guns
909 Third Avenue, 15th Floor

Gun control groups have been starved to the point of dying in the United States in recent decades, as they fail to find enough funding to support a radical restriction on the basic human right of self-defense. They’re generally supported by a handful of wealthy left-wing foundations, but have little money, influence, or popular support.

MAIG became the preeminent gun prohibitionist group in the nation due to Michael Bloomberg’s funding and the political clout of the various mayors who joined the group, but that clout began to diminish as Bloomberg authoritarian tendencies to control every aspect of people’s lives down to their drink sizes and sugar intake became a detriment, and members of his group started going to jail one after another for assault, bribery, corruption, fraud, and yes, gun crimes.

Mom’s Demand was nothing more than a PR stunt meant to capitalize on unthinking emotionalism, backed by Bloomberg’s deep pockets. Thanks to Bloomberg’s thick wallet, Moms Demand Illegal Mayors won’t likely be going anywhere for a while… though they may eventually wear out their welcome, and resurface under a different name.

Moms Demand Money From Michael Bloomberg has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
