D.C. Area Witches Unite for Gun Control, Hurl Curses at the NRA

Gun control advocates can now boast of a new group of allies joining their dubious coalition: witches.

It kind of makes sense.

We all know that gun control is based mainly on magical thinking.

Its advocates, after all, ask us to believe we’re just a few more “commonsense safety measures” away from a world in which evil people who are otherwise determined to kill others refrain from doing so for fear they might violate a gun control law somewhere along the way.

A related premise is that gun control advocates hold the keys to ending violent behavior once and for all, if only the NRA would release its stranglehold on elected officials and taxpayers would pony up the money for “studies” to substantiate their agenda.

According to website wildhunt.org – which features “modern pagan news & commentary” – “documentary filmmaker” Patrick J. Foust has captured a “spellbinding on Donald Trump and the NRA” led by self-described witch David Salisbury.

Foust said he was inspired to make the film, which he’s dubbed The Binding, after seeing news footage of witches conducting a similar ritual on President Trump shortly after his inauguration.

The Binding’s titular event features Salisbury and seven other witches surrounding a table festooned with, among other things, a cauldron sitting atop a pentacle, as well as “a five-dollar bill painted red — to symbolize blood — and a piece of paper with the huge block letters ‘NRA.’” Salisbury stridently hurls curses at those he characterizes as “merchants of mayhem, profiteers of pain, dealers of death,” who “fatten on the blood of innocents and feast like demons on their corpses!” He continues, “May your thoughts and prayers turn to poison in your mouths.”

Foust hopes to promote his 14-minute film on the festival circuit and then make it available on the Internet. He describes himself as a “hardcore liberal Democrat” who “felt like the whole world came crashing down around us” on November 9, 2016. “I saw the Trump Tower binding,” he told Wild Hunt, “and realized there was this tremendous opportunity to tell a story about how this election of Donald Trump has affected spiritual beings, affected all of us really.”

Internet research led Foust to Salisbury, who the article describes as “an activist Witch with a social justice bent” living in Washington, D.C. Salisbury claims to use “the Craft to promote social justice and empower marginalized communities.” He explained, “Gun violence in America is something I’ve always felt kind of helpless about,” but “[i]f there is anything I can do at all that’s even remotely effective, that might be magic.”

Foust admitted that he didn’t know much about witchcraft when embarking on the project, but he had at least been exposed to Paganism and the occult through books and films such as Outlander. “[B]ut as far as what daily life looked like for a modern-day Witch, I really didn’t know too much,” he acknowledged. He hopes his film will allow viewers “to see that we’re all kind of the same.”

Good luck with that.

The film has yet to be released, although the ritual it depicts was apparently conducted during Samhain 2017 (Oct. 1 – Nov. 1). It’s unclear from the Wild Hunt article whether the spellbinding was supposed to take effect immediately or at a later date, but we can report that the NRA has not experienced any uptick in paranormal activity or supernatural suppression of our affairs in the interim.

We are, on the other hand, experiencing record levels of support from people who understand better than ever from recent events that those who are determined to disarm law-abiding Americans will stoop to any tactic and exploit any perceived advantage to advance their prohibitory agenda. That includes, so it seems, attempting to use magic spells to accomplish what they have failed to achieve through other means.

As for the NRA, we’ll leave it to the gun control movement to appeal to Hekate, Queen of Witches. We prefer the more down-to-earth channels of education, political activism, and grassroots organizing.

Besides, an NRA membership is still a lot more economical, and far more effective, than trying to bargain with the spirit world.
