Rebekah Evans, an Arkansas woman, is leading a new anti-gun effort in her home state.
But she’s getting crafty.
As leader of the Jonesboro chapter of Moms Demand Action, she is now working with a food pantry to hand out pamphlets from Moms Demand’s Be Smart program, “which promotes safe gun storage, alongside food and other emergency supplies” according to a report from The Trace.
“It’s hard to know how to be helpful in our communities right now, so it was gratifying to do something concrete and something I hope will keep children safe in their homes,” Evans declared.
Moms Demand Action is a part of Everytown for Gun Safety, one of the most prominent civilian disarmament organizations in the nation. Evans said food pantries have handed out more than 200 pamphlets and are asking for more.
Many of these gun control organizations are becoming fixated with gun safety after record numbers of gun owners are buying firearms during the Wuhan virus lockdowns.
The Trace highlighted the concerns of one gun control leader:
Kyleanne Hunter, the vice president of programs for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, an advocacy group, said it is especially concerning that so many of the people who have bought guns in recent months appear to be first-time gun buyers who don’t have access to the training and other support that they would during normal times.
“Safe storage is not something that people think about when they first buy a gun,” commented Hunter. “It’s like when you go to the pet store and say, ‘Aw, that puppy’s really cute!’ And then you get home and think, ‘Uh oh, who’s going to let it out?’”
Jenna Sullivan, an associate pastor at the Magnolia Road Church in Jonesboro and the coordinator of the Community Services Center Friends and Neighbors Network food distribution program, recounted that she placed safe storage pamphlets next to cornflakes boxes that were sent to families in the past month.
The Trace summarized Sullivan’s views:
Sullivan said guns can be a polarizing issue in her congregation: Some people own firearms and feel strongly about their Second Amendment rights; others are open about disliking guns. But she said it’s important to seek common ground. “I’m pretty committed to finding ways to talk about these things without losing trust or respect, and while keeping a compassionate mindset,” she said.
“I hope people got the information and had that brief moment of being reminded to store guns safely,” Sullivan remarked. “I think that makes a difference.”
Indeed, gun controllers are becoming creative in their efforts to advance gun control.
21st century politics goes beyond the ballot box.
Operatives are looking to infiltrate every nook and cranny of civil society to propagate their message.
The Right must recognize these new strategies and be prepared to counter them by defending civic institutions and taking back territory the Left has seized.
University Student Who Dared Question the LGBT Agenda is Now Facing the Threat of Losing his Scholarship
Defy the LGBT agenda at your own peril.
A Villanova University student claims that her academic advisor is attempting to intimidate her for tweets that criticized the university’s promotion of Pride Month.
Melanie Didioti, a graduate student at Villanova University, criticized the school’s athletic department for its Pride Month tweet on June 22, 2020. The tweet stated, “Love is Love. Happy #PrideMonth – We are proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ+ Community.”
Didioti responded with a tweet: “Villanova is proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ community and ashamed to be Catholic so I’m ashamed to attend here and that’s that.”
She claimed that this tweet resulted in her having a tense meeting with her academic advisor in the theology department, Professor Jennifer Jackson, on June 26.
Initially, Jackson claimed that the meeting was only about the fall 2020 schedule, per emails that The College Fix was able to require.
Instead, Didioti asserted that Jackson took advantage of the meeting to blast her tweets.
Didioti concluded that this interaction was the final “nail in the coffin,” and she now has plans to transfer to the Franciscan University of Steubenville, which is more conservative.
Universities in America have become leftist think tanks that do not promote free speech, nor allow people to hold provocative views.
Most conservatives are probably better off skipping class and learning trades.
