We’re having serious reservations about the sanity of Moms Demand Action for Gunsense In America.
They attempted to rewrite reality just yesterday, blaming a 20011 murder committed with an illegally purchased weapon and and illegally acquired ammunition on a lack of universal background checks. It was a blatant and obvious lie, easily debunked.
Moms Demand Action is at it again today, attempting—for the second time this week—to blame armed robberies that have occurred within Kroger stores on lawful open carry.
It is by any measure a bizarre crime, and a clear one, committed by a man who wore a disguise to enter the store with the intention of committing a felony crime. He produced a weapon hidden in his costume, successfully robbed the bank and escaped the store, then ditched his hoodie and gloves in a patch of woods nearby. These items have been recovered, and are being processed. If he has a criminal record and his DNA is in the system, odds are that he will be identified and a warrant issued for his arrest in fairly short order.
Rational people understand that this was a crime from start to finish, as was the armed robbery in another Ohio store earlier this week.
But what does Moms Demand claim that people should learn from these crimes?
These crimes at two Kroger stores in one week should serve as a wake up call to Kroger’s leadership to prohibit the open carry of firearms in its stores. Kroger customers should not be responsible for determining if someone in the store holding a gun is a criminal or making a political statement.
Please SHARE and CALL Kroger and tell them women and mothers want them to prohibit open carry…
Incredibly, they’re claiming that felony crimes committed by these two criminals justifies banning the carrying of firearms by law-abiding citizens. They are seriously arguing that reducing crime deterrence will reduce crime, and the presence of firearms causes crime.

If I was attempting to protect such an obviously false worldview, I’d block all attempts at logical thought as well.
How do you reason with people so obviously incapable of reason?
