Don’t hold it against them.
The girls have gotta earn a living somehow.
“Moms” Demand Action, the group headed up by Shannon Watts (the professional Democrat political operative) have finally and officially publicly prostituted themselves to the Billionaire (former mayor) Michael Bloomberg.
Bob Owens at Bearing Arms sums it up nicely and puts a bow on it:
NC Gun Blog’s Sean Sorrentino notes that Mom’s Demand has now even dropped the pretense of being anything other than “beards” for Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns:
Take one billionaire former New York City mayor with a Napoleon complex, dress him in drag, and what do you get? “Moms” Demand Action for Gunsense in America. We’ve already been told that Moms Demand has “merged” with MAIG.But did you know that they’ve finally announced that they are just a “campaign” of MAIG? Here’s their “donate” page. Look closely at how they describe themselves and where they ask you to send the checks.
Indeed, this is the language that appears on the Moms Demand donation form:
Please note that contributions to Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a campaign of Mayors Against Illegal Guns Action Fund, are NOT tax-deductible.
If you prefer, checks made out to Mayors Against Illegal Guns Action Fund may be mailed to:
Mayors Against Illegal Guns

Gun control groups have been starved to the point of dying in the United States in recent decades, as they fail to find enough funding to support a radical restriction on the basic human right of self-defense. They’re generally supported by a handful of wealthy left-wing foundations, but have little money, influence, or popular support.
Moms Demand Action seems to be headed the way of the Illinois Coalition Against Handgun Ownership, er, Violence.
Ten years ago, they were riding high, flush with cash from their leftist sponsors.
The money dried up and there was almost zero grassroots support.
As a result, ICHV slashed their internal staff, closed their Springfield office, fired their lobbyist and pretty much went into hibernation.
Let’s hope Moms are the same.
Although, we must admit Shannon Watts is nicer to look at than Thom Mannard.
