Raising The Discourse

The “Coalition to Stop Gun VIolence” has never been one of the marquee criminal-safety organizations – they’ve been especially eclipsed in recent years by Michael Bloomberg’s “Everytown” chain of McGunControl groups.  Like “Protect” Minnesota, they are largely sponsored by the Joyce Foundation.  Like “Protect” Minnesota, they have never said an original, substantial, true thing about guns or gun owners.

And lately, it seems, playing second banana has not setting too well with ’em.

This is their latest release:

This is today’s “Gun Violence” “Gun Safety” “Gun Control” “Criminal Safety” movement.

If Lott does in fact decide to sue the CSGV for defamation – and it’d seem he has a case, here – I’ll be running a fundraiser.

  3. Unfortunately, MP, not one of the groups listed there, with the possible exception of “Mennonite Central Committee”, would give a shit about that insane rant.

    I’m surprised the ELCA isn’t in that list.

    M. Luther insulted people using far worse terms than “shit stain.”
