The anti-gun March for Our Lives movement may have the mainstream media on their side, but they clearly don’t have facts. The latest false claim about guns comes from lead organizer of the New York March for Our Lives who took to Twitter to claim that it’s easier to buy a gun than it is to buy deodorant in America.
In reality, guns are one of the most regulated products in the United States. Despite regulations varying state by state, there are no states that have looser requirements than they do on deodorant. It is a fairly common practice to lock deodorant in stores, as it is an item that is often shoplifted, but that regulation isn’t compulsory under law, unlike gun regulations.
Organizers in the anti-gun March for Our Lives movement have a long history of making ridiculous and false statements. In the initial media frenzy following the Parkland, Florida shooting, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Delaney Tarr claimed that someone could walk into a store with $130 and buy an AR-15. Anyone who has ever been in the market for an AR-15 understands how ridiculous that claim is.
Despite that claim being thoroughly debunked, that video clip was featured in the intro to the main March for Our Lives event in Washington, D.C., and Tarr spoke at the event.
Along with Tarr, many of the other organizers have been caught peddling lies to advance their agenda. Perhaps the most visible activist in the anti-gun student movement, David Hogg, lied so often that a CNN anchor was forced to admit that he allowed Hogg to lie on his show without correction.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
