JUST IN: High Level Lib Organization Now Calling For GUN CONTROL After Charlottesville… One MAJOR Problem

Bloomberg shill and gun control advocate Shannon Watts is never one to let a good tragedy to go to waste and it seems the recent violence in Charlottesville is no exception. Watts heads up gun control organizations Everytown For Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action.  Both groups are pointing to Virginia’s open carry laws as a core issue at the events that unfolded in Charlottesville, Virginia, except no gunshots were fired

Everytown said in a statement –

“The complications of such policies are on display today in Charlottesville as white supremacists openly carry loaded guns. Not only does this make the job of law enforcement more difficult by blurring the lines of lawful gun owners and those intent on doing harm, but it also drives intimidation and fear.”

Everytown’s principal issue seems to be with Virginia’s open carry laws and that folks chose to arm themselves in what was likely to be a dangerous situation.

Everytown then proceeds to liken the events in Charlottesville where no gunfire occurred, to the racially charged, racially motivated mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina at the Emanuel AME church in 2015.

“Previous racially motivated shootings like the mass shooting at Emanuel AME church in Charleston, South Carolina shows that this is not merely hypothetical. As hate crimes also appear to be on the rise, it remains far too easy for hateful people – even those convicted of certain hate crimes – to obtain guns. Under federal law, many hate crime convictions do not currently make someone ineligible for gun ownership.

With public attention on what is happening in Charlottesville, it’s important to understand the troubling reality of open-carry and what happens when guns fall into hate-filled hands. Background information is below, as well as media availability for organization leaders and gun violence survivors.”

Of the three people killed and 35+ injured in Charlottesville in relation to the clash between alt left and alt right extremists, not a single one was injured due to a firearm.  Two were killed as a result of a helicopter crash, 1 died and 19 were injured due to 20-year old Ohio resident Alex Fields, plowing his car through a crowd of protesters. The remainder were injured due to altercations between various groups and physical violence.

The rally was held in protest of the city’s plans to remove the General Robert E. Lee statue from Emancipation Park, formerly Lee Park.
