"Million" Mom Farce

Friday, May 14, 2004

One Second Amendment supporter who witnessed last Sunday’s (two-one-thousandths-of-a) "Million" Mom March was quoted as saying, "It wasn’t a ‘Million Mom March’ - it was a ‘thousand gang limp.’"

The quote aptly describes the event’s extremely low turnout, and is indicative of the waning interest in the group’s anti-freedom message. The Associated Press generously estimated the size of the crowd at just 2,000, or about 99.8 percent less than the group’s billing implied!

The year’s event - organized in conjunction with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence - represents yet another unsuccessful attempt by the "Million" Mom March group to forward its misguided agenda, and rally what’s left of its supporters against lawful firearms ownership. Undeterred by the obvious lack of support, and determined to persist in its anti-gun mission, the group continues to lobby for the renewal of the Clinton gun ban, which will expire on September 13, 2004. And while they will claim that their primary concern is "safety," it is ironic, to say the least, that the group’s two marquee events have coincided with presidential election years.

Make no mistake. Over the next few months we’re in for a sustained political battle over this issue. And we need to be prepared. If you want to know the TRUTH about the Clinton gun ban, please visit NRA-ILA’s informative website - www.ClintonGunBan.com - and learn the facts about this debate, which has too long been driven and dominated by falsehoods and emotion. And please forward this website to others who need to know both the history and the truth about this issue. Then, please contact your U.S. Representative and Senators and urge them to oppose current legislation seeking to greatly expand the 1994 Clinton gun ban - H.R. 2038, H.R. 3831, S. 1431, and S. 1034. And remember to use NRA-ILA’s Resources on this issue to write letters to the editor of your local newspaper whenever the need to set the record straight arises. Together, we can expose and refute the anti-gunners lies, and emotional sensationalism.

You can find contact information for your elected officials by using the "Write Your Representatives" tool, or you can call your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121 and your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121. You can also use the "Write the Media" feature for assistance in identifying, and writing letters to, the editor of your area newspaper.
