Hilarity from The Hill

Michael Hopkins at The Hill opines, “Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand will lead Democrats to 2020 victory“:

“… As the Democratic party looks toward the 2020 presidential election, there are questions about who will take over the mantle of spokesperson and future leader of the party … Rising stars Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) seem to have the rare ability to unite the party and excite the various factions making up the base …”

No.

Gillibrand is Chuck Schumer’s mini-me while Harris is going full Bernie.

“… If Democrats have any hope of winning back the White House in 2020, we have to do more than just run a candidate, we must run a movement …”

Democrats have a movement, Black Lives Matter and AntiFa.  It’s based upon racism, sexism, anti-semitism, anti-intellectualism, and contempt for individuality.  That’s why so many of them, especially Harris, are big supporters of gun control.

Breyer should retire too

There has been much speculation that another SCOTUS Justice will be retiring soon with Anthony Kennedy being the primary suspect.

Kennedy isn’t the only one who needs to go:

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer said in an interview aired Tuesday that judges make poor politicians, that he misses late Justice Antonin Scalia, and that the Second Amendment doesn’t apply to a citizen keeping a gun next to their bed …”

Statements like this explain why the Court decline to hear the Peruta carry case back in June.

Locals already knew that

Kathleen Rice has a long history of contempt for gun owners rights going back to her time as Nassau County District Attorney. She’s continued on with this in Congress.

Thanks to this Tweet, the rest of the country knows about her as well.

NRA responded with an effort using the #RemoveRice hashtag to get her booted from the Homeland Security Committee. I doubt that will work and it sure won’t stop her from continuing her campaign against gun rights in the future.

If NRA really wants to make a statement they should dump money on whomever her opponent is next year regardless of their position on guns because Tweetstorms won’t cut it.

Wanting more than just astroturf

Moms Demand Action is attempting to create something more than just the astroturf gun control groups currently have now.

This past weekend in St. Louis they hosted “Gun Sense University” which at first inspection I thought was going to be an effort to encourage their supporters to engage in serious, creditable activities like letter-writing, phone-banking, volunteering for political candidates and other GOTV efforts.

Instead, there was this:

I don’t think we have anything to worry about.

Failed protest

Organizers of the so-called Women’s March held a protest at NRA headquarters Friday.

Despite being organized by professional agitators with the backing of national organizations worth millions of dollars and with professional public relations operations, and having received encouragement from politicians across the country, and having received plenty of pre-event media attention, only 300-400 people showed up.

By any measure it was a complete joke.  I’d even go so far as to saying the pathetic turnout damaged the credibility of the organizers and the gun control movement in general.

Is seven bullets enough?

Why does Shannon Watts still have a job?

Sebastian notes that Shannon Watts spewed some idiocy to The Hill on suppressors and that has got me wondering why on earth does Mike Bloomberg keep her on the payroll?

With a background in public relations I understand why Bloomberg hired her in the first place, but she is so hilariously bad at presenting her case that I cannot believe even the most ardent gun control proponents see her as an asset to the cause.

Michael Bloomberg is not a stupid man.  He is a self-made billionaire with keen business sense who did not make all that money by making bad decisions.  Even if he’s porking her, I cannot figure out what positive aspects he believes she brings to the table.

Moms Demand in Albany

Moms Demand Action had their lobby day in Albany today:

From the pictures I’ve seen they look to have had roughly the same number of people that New Yorkers Against Gun Violence brought up a couple of weeks ago. One noticeable difference, aside from the shirts, is I have not seen any solicitation for funds from MDA. NYAGV asked for donations to bus their children to Albany.

I do not understand why MDA and NYAGV did not work together to have a single lobby day. Having two events which are essentially the same scheduled so close together does not make much sense to me. I wonder if Mike Bloomberg is trying to push aside the competition. The Brady Campaign used to get much more attention until he came along. Is he trying to do the same to NYAGV?

Senate Democrats gun control press conference

$135 million to fight the NRA

According to CBS, Michael Bloomberg has spent $135 million dollars so far battling the NRA.

He hasn’t gotten much to show for it.
