It is the 6th National Gun Violence Awareness Day. As such, the wholly Bloomberg funded group "Mothers Demand Action" are urging everyone to wear orange tomorrow.
I don't think that there is a gun owner who isn't opposed to violence, but that is precisely it - the violence and the criminal are what should be targeted, not the gun. MDA doesn't seem to understand (or most likely they do) that more gun laws only oppress the law abiding. Criminals, by definition, do not obey the law. If gun laws curbed violence and crime, then NJ should be the safest state in the union.
So I suggest a small counter demonstration - no we aren't going to march or loot - just wear GREEN tomorrow. Preferably something green with a firearms manufacturers' logo on it or something else relating to guns and/or the legitimate use thereof.
Let's make Friday GUN AWARENESS DAY and tell MDA to direct their efforts toward something meaningful like MADD - there is a cause we can all get behind..
WEAR GREEN ON FRIDAY JUNE 5TH
