“Two years ago, it all started with a Facebook page,” reads the description for a new video that showcases the origin of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, the pro-gun control organization founded by Shannon Watts and funded by billionaire business magnate Michael Bloomberg.
“Today, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is a national movement going toe to toe with the NRA,” it continues.
Yes, it’s true, along with its older brother Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Moms Demand Action is taking on the nation’s gun lobby in the battle over restricting one’s Constitutional rights to keep and bear arms.
While the successes of the burgeoning gun-control group can be debated, what can’t be argued is the fact that it’s here to stay. With billions of dollars backing its cause, thanks to Bloomberg pocketbook, Moms/Mayors which together comprise Everytown for Gun Safety is not going away anytime soon. That, if anything, is the take away from the video.
