Gun control activists have repeatedly used national tragedies to try to push their agenda. They use grieving victims to invoke an emotional response and spread misinformation falsely claiming that enacting their agenda would have prevented these tragedies and will prevent future tragedies.


Just yesterday, the former executive director of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group admitted that mass shootings would not have been stopped by stricter gun control. Media coverage of mass shootings repeatedly notes these tragedies take place in areas with some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation.

Groups sponsored by Bloomberg have tried to inflate statistics and circumstances to play on the public’s emotions, and have been called out by independent fact-checkers as being false and misleading.

In predictable fashion, one day after the former executive director of Bloomberg's group publicly stated that their gun control agenda will not prevent future tragedies, Bloomberg's Everytown for Gun Safety held an emotionally charged press conference urging Congress to enact their anti-freedom agenda.
Just as the tactics of anti-gun groups don’t change, neither do the facts. The anti-Second Amendment agenda being pushed by Bloomberg will not prevent these tragedies from occurring. It's clear that their agenda is not to make children safer or prevent tragedies, but to enact an extreme anti-gun agenda. If they were truly concerned with saving lives, they would work to address our broken mental health system and ensure that violent criminals are prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Michael Bloomberg and his operatives are not telling the truth to Congress or the American people. Your U.S. Representative and Senators need to hear from your today. Tell them you won’t stand for more ineffective bans on firearms; so-called “universal” background check systems; or any other gun control scheme. Let them know you want serious legislation passed to fix the broken mental health system in this country – that is the real issue. Bloomberg thinks he can buy the American people and the U.S. Congress. He may have billions of dollars, but he doesn’t have you. Please contact your Senators and Representative today to stop Bloomberg’s lies!

Former Everytown Executive Director, And “Face Of The Gun Control Movement,” Mark Glaze Says “Nothing We Have To Offer” Would Stop Mass Shootings
Mark Glaze Said “Many Mass Shootings Wouldn’t Have Been Stopped By Tighter Regulations Proposed By Gun-Control Advocates” “And Mr. Glaze said the movement hasn’t solved one of its signature problems: Many mass shootings wouldn’t have been stopped by tighter regulations proposed by gun-control advocates” (Reid J. Epstein, “Gun-Control Advocate: Snowden, Obamacare Hurt Our Cause,” The Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire, 6/16/14)
Glaze Said It Is A “Challenge In This Issue” … “When A Mass Shooting Happens And Nothing That We Have To Offer Would Have Stopped That Mass Shooting.” GLAZE: “Because people perceive a mismatch in the policy solutions that we have to offer and the way some of these mass shootings happened, you know, it is a messaging problem for us, I think. … Is it a messaging problem when a mass shooting happens and nothing that we have to offer would have stopped that mass shooting? Sure it’s a challenge in this issue.”(Reid J. Epstein, “Gun-Control Advocate: Snowden, Obamacare Hurt Our Cause,” The Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire, 6/16/14)

Mark Glaze Had “Been The Face Of The Gun-Control Movement” Before Leaving Everytown
When He Left In June 2014, Glaze Had Served As The Executive Director Of Bloomberg’s Gun-Control Groups For Three And A Half Years. “Now Mr. Glaze, 43 years old, has stepped away from the fight. Friday marked his last day working for Mr. Bloomberg’s organization, now called Everytown for Gun Safety, after three and a half years as executive director.”(Reid J. Epstein, “Gun-Control Advocate: Snowden, Obamacare Hurt Our Cause,” The Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire, 6/16/14)

“Since The Newtown Massacre, Mark Glaze Has Been The Face Of The Gun-Control Movement.” (Reid J. Epstein, “Gun-Control Advocate: Snowden, Obamacare Hurt Our Cause,” The Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire, 6/16/14)
•As Executive Director Of Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Glaze “Led The Futile 2013 Fight For Expanded Background Checks” And Often Appears On Cable News. “The executive director of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Mr. Glaze led the futile 2013 fight for expanded background checks and has been regular on cable news after each successive mass shooting.” (Reid J. Epstein, “Gun-Control Advocate: Snowden, Obamacare Hurt Our Cause,” The Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire, 6/16/14)



Other Gun Control Proponents on the Efficacy of Increased Gun Control

•Colo. Gov. John Hickenlooper said that the 2013 gun control laws passed in Colorado would not make any difference in preventing a shooting at a Colorado High School. “But in this specific case, it’s not going to make any difference at all, right?” (commenting on the failure of Colorado’s 2013 gun control laws expanding background checks and limiting magazine capacity to stop a shooting at a Colorado high school)

•Then Colorado State Senate President John Morse (D) lamented that limiting magazine capacity would not reduce violence. Morse was defeated in a recall election for his role in the passage of draconian anti-Second Amendment legislation. “How does a limit on high-capacity magazines reduce violence?”
•Paul M. Barrett, writer for Bloomberg Businessweek wrote that conventional gun-control proposals will not deter those committed to perpetrating acts of senseless violence. “Forget conventional gun-control proposals” in the case of “the suicidal young man determined to express his pain and rage by taking innocent people with him.” California has “some of the toughest gun-control laws in the country” but “[t]hose laws didn’t stop, or even significantly slow” the Isla Vista perpetrator.
