Moms Demand Action remain desperate for relevance in today's political landscape. Their latest ham-handed effort to garner publicity for their misguided cause? Handing out 200 sample-sized containers of laundry detergent at a Lynchburg, VA public housing complex.
The Lynchburg, VA News and Advance has the story:
The Lynchburg chapter of Moms Demand Action, a national organization advocating for stricter gun laws, distributed about 200 bottles of laundry detergent Tuesday to the Dearington apartment complex — a publicly owned housing complex for low-income residents.
Brenda Moss, the community outreach lead for the chapter, said the detergent was entirely funded by donations. The giveaway, she said, was made to help spread the chapter’s message and to provide residents with a crucial household item many take for granted.
“The goal today was to make the community aware that we’re here,” Moss said. “When you meet the need of the community it shows you care.”
They care? Can you spell 'virtue signaling'? Because a box of el-cheapo laundry detergent shows you care how exactly?
You know, the one thing gun owners have (that the other side doesn't) is the ability to bring people over to the gun rights side of the equation in the span of a morning or afternoon. Taking a non-shooter to the range and letting them experience the thrill of the first time shooting a gun and the empowerment it provides will usually forever change them and their views on guns.
Kids and adults alike. Just look to the top of this page on the right side… that television reporter had never fired a gun before and she had a great time firing her first shots.
There is no equivalent for Moms Demand Action or any of the other gun grabbing groups. All they can play upon is the fears and emotions of people who don't know better. And now, hand out crappy laundry detergent. No amount of laundry soap will make people hate guns. Nor will it likely sway people into more readily surrendering their rights.
