NRA’s Cringeworthy Attack On Female Gun Control Advocate
Dave Kopel, writing in an NRA magazine, attacks Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for gun sense, in a way that gives misogyny a bad name. Kopel and the NRA are upset that Watts describes herself as a “stay at home mom” even though she has superb work credentials. So, what do they do? They picture her surrounded by household items, like any good wife or homemaker should be.
Kopel takes issue with Watts’ description of the group as a “grassroots” effort since she is an experienced public relations professional with former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg as a client. Moms Demand Action is now part of Bloomberg’s group of gun control organizations.
And Kopel is upset that Watts “purports to speak for all mothers” when she actually “speaks only for a relatively small group of highly gullible people, including some mothers.”
He points readers instead to gun rights activist Julie Globb, “captain of Team Smith & Wesson” and “mother of two.”[su_sky_ad]
