    Which mothers to follow, those with the mayors or the ones with guns?

    Yesterday’s announcement that Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) has merged with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (MDAGSA) came 24 hours after a local Fox station in Cincinnati reported about the rising number of women – including moms – who are arming themselves, and it causes a dilemma: Which moms should the country believe?

    Simple. Moms with weapons = Win Win

    Moms in America Demand Gun Action Sense = MADGAS

    The ones who support the 2A, that's a no brainer for me but all those yuppie soccer moms will follow the liberal mantra which is for gun control.
    They actually think that the police are going to be there for then in a home invasion before they get raped then killed...

    On December 26th Michael Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) will announce it is joining forces with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (MDA) in a continuing push for more gun control.

    This will benefit MAIG inasmuch as their numbers have been dwindling and it will benefit MDA by giving them the funding that comes from "Bloomberg's deep pockets."

    According to USA Today, MAIG chairman John Feinblatt says the joining of the two groups marks "a turning point for the [gun control] movement."

    It should be noted that neither group has been very successful operating on their own to date. MAIG ruthlessly campaigned for the passage of Senator Joe Manchin's (D-WV) gun bill in April, only to see it defeated.

    The failure of MAIG is best understood by juxtaposing November 2012 with November 2013. In 2012 Bloomberg suggested the NRA was dying--that it no longer possessed the ability to "move the needle" in political elections. In November 2013 Virginia delegate races NRA-backed candidates beat Bloomberg/MAIG candidates 65-2.

    As for MDA, to date they have pressured Starbucks' CEO Howard Schultz to ban guns in all Starbucks stores: he did not. They are currently pressuring Staples CEO Ronald Sargent to ban guns in all Staples stores: he has not.

    Their next campaign is to be against McDonald's: pressuring the iconic fast food giant to ban the possession of firearms on all McDonald's property--even firearms possessed by law abiding citizens with concealed carry licenses.

    Losing track record aside, they will have plenty of money for the campaign against McDonald's thanks to Bloomberg.
