Today at 10AM, “Protect Minnesota” and a coalition of mostly white, mostly upper-middle-class, entirely left-of-center groups will meet, as we discussed yesterday, to try to figure out how to suppress the Second Amendment for the law-abiding Minnesotan.
Yesterday, we discussed the invitation – and how they’re really not interested in any solution that doesn’t involve infringing on the law-abiding, having rejected the RSVPs of Second Amendment activists.
But what about the agenda itself?
The invite – from
“Protect Minnesota” The Brady Factory – says:
Find out what’s next in this important work and what your role can be. Sessions include:
— Changing the narrative around gun violence prevention
— Developing effective media strategy
— A deep dive on gun policy in Minnesota
— Grassroots lobbying
— Creating change with personal stories
What are they talking about?
Let’s turn this into real English:
Changing the narrative around gun violence prevention: Whose narrative are we talking about, here? The one in the media? That one is certainly gun-grabber friendly. Or are you talking about the one out there in the larger society – the one that keeps answering “guns in the hands of the law-abiding are a good thing” at the ballot box?
A deep dive on gun policy in Minnesota: “Deep Dive?” You don’t need no stinkin’ deep dive. I’ll tell you what you need to know; for the past 40 years, our self-appointed “elites” have been trying to set gun policy. From 1974 through 1994, it worked. Then Minnesota’s gun owners got organized. Since then, the “elites” have been shut down, and haven’t won a battle that wasn’t handed to them by a judge.
Take that time you were going to spend in your “deep dive” and do something useful. Maybe take a walk.
Grassroots lobbying: This should be a fun session. The gun-grabbers have no “grass roots”
They have astroturf. They have a few activists (see photo above) and a lot of money from liberals with deep pockets.
And that’s it.
Creating change with personal stories: Go ahead. Bring your personal stories. We’ll bring ours.
The meeting should be fun. And by “fun”, I mean “clogged with self-righteous but badly-informed bobbleheads”.
