Berg’s Seventh Law: Locked And Loaded

Read this statement by the “executive director” and chief check-endorser of a major gun-grab group and see if you detect the same theme I do:

“Gun makers are softening their image to ‘put a better face in front of people’ & ‘ramp up its appeal to women, children and members of minority groups,'” Igor Volsky, executive director of gun-control activist group Guns Down America, said in a tweet. Volsky, who is also a former vice president of the Center for American Progress, was commenting on a New York Times story about firearms marketing.

“That’s right,” Volsky continued. “Gun makers are increasingly advertising to WOMEN, CHILDREN & MINORITY COMMUNITIES. Firearm industry realizes that to survive into the future it must ‘broaden its reach beyond the aging white men who have been its core customers’—and so they’re now trying to sell their products to other demographics. This is incredibly dangerous.”

Imagine an executive in any other field bemoaning the diminished capacity of “WOMEN CHILDREN & MINORITIES” around any other product…

…not to mention Civil Right?

  1. Let me just stereotype here, betting that I’m correct.

    His name seems to indicate that his family probably emigrated here from one of the former Soviet Bloc countries, most likely, Poland. The authoritarian actions taken in those countries by the Communists, is apparently, lost on Igor.

  2. Marketing legal products to women and minorities to help them empower themselves is bad enough. Who wants uppity Negros and sassy women to have the means of self-defense when White Men come riding through?

    But at least they’re not marketing to LGBTQQIAAP. ‘Cuz that would be going too far, by God!

  3. Only an insane, neo-Natsie white supremacist would give a firearm to a child that is on a regimen of puberty blockers, adderall and PrEP. It’d only be a matter if time before a kid commits a mass shooting in a gay strip club!!

    There is simply no act too heinous, no bridge too far for Drumpf cultists.

  4. I think it was Ann Coulter who stated that leftists think that the idea of a woman raped and strangled by her own underwear is morally superior to the idea of the same woman explaining to police how her would-be rapist ended up dead with two bullet holes in him.

    It’ll be interesting if somebody turns up an old quote (or even better, video) of Volsky railing against the “white supremacy” of the NRA. And since, according to these gun-control-fetishists, the NRA represents gun makers, it will be interesting to see the logical pretzel he and his ilk twist themselves into while explaining the NRA is racist, but the gun makers they “represent” are marketing to minorities.
