Shannon Watts heads up Michael Bloomberg’s “Moms Demand Action” and “EveryTown USA,” to groups that are dedicated to eliminating the Second Amendment and you’re right to bear arms.
Gun grabbers like to complain about the amount of money that the National Rifle Association spends lobbying to protect your Second Amendment rights. It’s interesting that they never mention that Michael Bloomberg is personally spending 10 times more than the National Rifle Association to take away your Second Amendment rights.
Shannon Watts has a long history of saying and doing really stupid things. For instance, here she is talking about the NRA’s comment that “it takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun.”
Got that? A good guy NEVER stopped a bad guy with a gun. According to Shannon.
Shannon may be able to get her makeup on okay but she doesn’t have a clue how to do research. There’s some controversy over the numbers on how many times guns are used defensively so I spent about 15 seconds with my good friend Mr. Google and found this FBI publication that had some interesting comments about defensive use of a firearm. In other words Shannon, “a good guy with a gun.”
In 2012, there were 259 justifiable homicides involving gun. For the five-year. 2008 through 2012, there were 1,108 justifiable homicides involving a gun.
From from 2007 – 2011 the FBI found that 236,000 victims of violent crime using to protect themselves from the attacker. Another hundred and 103,000 used a gun to protect themselves from property crime.
Did I mention that Shannon Watts is an idiot?
That brings us to this week in the shooting that took place in a courthouse in Berrigan, Michigan. Shannon jumped on this one like a fly on… you know.
Before the sound of the gunfire had stopped ringing in the ears of bystanders Shannon Watts was on Twitter denouncing the National Rifle Association.
“THIS is outcome [sic]of @NRA’s dangerous agenda of guns for anyone, anywhere, anytime: no questions asked. Berrien County.”
Oh really Shannon? Let’s take a look at what really happened.
It turns out the shooter was a prisoner who was being transferred from a holding cell to courtroom. He grabbed a gun of a police officer who was assisting in the transport. He used the stolen gun to murder the two court bailiffs. Fortunately there were other armed officers on the scene – “good guys” – who killed the criminal before he could hurt anyone else.
Shannon the Stupid got taken to the woodshed on Twitter.
Shannon hasn’t found the time in her busy schedule to apologize to the NRA for her stupidity, and don’t expect one. Shannon Watts, and gun grabbers like her, don’t care about facts. They typically jump on any story regarding the shooting and push a message before the facts are known, just like Barack Obama.
