Gun Nuts To Hijack Newtown Massacre Anniversary, Plan “Guns Save Lives Day”

guns save lives day

Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundations and the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms says that he and fellow gun lovers are going to use the Dec. 14th, the anniversary of the Sandy Hook slayings to “re-brand” the day as pro gun because gun control groups are already politicizing the anniversary.

The Daily News:

In an appalling bid to “own” the Dec. 14 anniversary of the Newtown slayings, a coalition of gun lovers has announced plans to declare that horrific date “Guns Save Lives” day. “We are going to use the day to get our views out,” said Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation. “We don’t want (pro gun-control groups) own that day. … We are gonna be there first.” It was a proclamation that had people who lost family members at the hands of a crazed gunman at Sandy Hook elementary school shuttering. “Dec. 14 is a sacred day for Newtown families that should be about our loved ones — not this disgusting political stunt,” said Erica Lafferty, the daughter of murdered Newtown principal Dawn Hochsprung. “These people will be trampling on the graves of the innocent children and educators who were murdered that day.”

Allan Gottlieb describes himself as “the premiere anti-communist, free-enterprise, laissez-faire capitalist.”  I call him a scumbag.

What’s stronger than disgust? The insane right wing nuts are making us invent new words now.
