Volunteers with the California chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, part of Everytown for Gun Safety, will gather from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 13 at Kite Field, E. Mission Bay Drive, for a peace picnic and bake sale to raise awareness and to support common sense gun laws and to celebrate the group’s progress in the five years.

The event in San Diego is one of more than 160 events across the country honoring five years of stopping the NRA’s agenda and passing legislation that can save lives.

Moms Demand Action volunteers, along with survivors of gun violence and other gun violence prevention advocates, have fought hard to change America’s lax gun laws. A report on the progress of the gun violence prevention movement in the last five years is available at momsdemandaction.org.

Passing legislation that can only save (and has only saved) violent criminals' lives, you mean.

Anti-Gunners perceive guns through a lens of murder. When they see a gun, they envision it being used to kill people. Think about what that says about them. When a gun-owner sees a gun, they perceive it through a lens of sporting, hunting or protecting human life. It is an embarrassment that we have reached a point in our society that we allow those with murderous thoughts in their minds to create the gun-narrative and decide what is best for everyone.

I recognize that we are now at a point in our history where it has become clear that we must change the narrative, educate people and shut down the fear-mongers. Those who violate the rights of their fellow citizens have no business being involved in the conversation and should never be given a seat at the negotiating table.

I could not agree more. Unfortunately, I can see no way for what you describe to happen. The ones who wish to disarm law abiding citizens (surely they are not so naive as to believe that criminals will voluntarily disarm themselves) control the narrative. They have virtually total control over the media. Even Fox is moving ever to the left. Soon the left will have complete control of all public channels of information along with the entire education (more like indoctrination) system.

"America’s lax gun laws"? Seriously? This year millions of Californians started their life of crime by owning standard capacity magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. I have lived in California for over 30 years and watched as a web of confusing, contradictory, and vague gun control laws has encircled me, trying to turn me into a criminal just for exercising my civil right to own a firearm. The Moms are lying to us all. They are the 21st century version of Ku Klux Klan Lite.

MDA is a bunch of misguided SJWs being led by paid astro-turf workers, yelling into an echo chamber and thinking they're making headway.

We freedom fighters will continue to roll back gun laws as often as possible.

I wonder how many people will be killed by criminals because of such wrong thinking. Being unarmed and unprepared to protect yourself and family is a sure road to disaster.

It's called the "Mommies Demand Attention" because nobody really pays attention to them anymore.
