Deceitful Intentions: What They Say Versus What They Mean

Michael Bloomberg and his faltering gun-prohibition groups are largely built on deceit and outright lies.
Their target is low information voters who will not take the time to research the facts but will quickly respond on emotion-based and sensationalized “our children are dying because of guns” stories. What Bloomberg and his organization say to Americans about their goals regarding guns versus what they really intend to accomplish with their efforts are two entirely different directions.
Bloomberg’s group, “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” claims its agenda is about “illegal guns”, yet, instead the group is pushing for restrictive laws that would infringe on the rights of law-abiding citizens. This deceit is the reason there was a mass exodus of dozens of mayors from “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” over the past few years. It seems the mayors are not as ignorant as Bloomberg has hoped.
Then there is his group, “Everytown for Gun Safety” which claims to be all about gun safety, yet its first few efforts have been geared toward convincing parents across America, particularly mothers, that having guns in their homes makes them less safe and in fact could lead to tragedy in the home.
That deception led to several high level defections, including the resignation of Everytown’s executive director, Mark Glaze, who left saying the the groups proposals would NOT STOP MASS SHOOTINGS.
Former Pennsylvania Republican Governor, Tom Ridge also resigned from “Everytown” just a few days after the organization’s debut. Then Bloomberg’s group, “Moms Demand Action” claims it is not anti-gun or anti-Second Amendment, which is a lie.
Shannon Watts, the organization’s leader repeatedly has said she wants to ban “assault weapons.”
Her definition of assault weapon means virtually every firearm with the exception of a muzzleloader.
Watts definition of “assault weapons”: (twitter@Shannonwatts, 1:48 pm- Nov.1, 2013) “An assault weapon enables humans to shoot 10 rounds in one minute.”
Basically when the Bloomberg lobby tells you they want “background checks,” what they really mean is that they want to criminalize all gun owners for simple things like loaning a family member a gun. (See proposed Initiative 594 which will be on the Washington state ballot in November.)
Bloomberg’s is determined to strip law abiding citizens of their gun rights. He’s putting 50 million dollars from his own wallet behind the push.
Don’t be fooled about his intentions.
Bloomberg promotes his gun control machine as “grassroots… Everytown for Gun Safety”, but… it’s not EVERY TOWN… It’s not GRASSROOTS, and it certainly isn’t about Gun Safety.
The truth is, it’s about “controlling lives” and stripping law abiding citizens of their only means to defend life.
