  •  Here's a nice quote from organizer. (1+ / 0-)

    Dustin Stockton, one of the event organisers, denied the date had been chosen to capitalise on the recent shootings. “This is not something that is aimed at that at all. It’s not a reaction to those events specifically at all,” he said. “Everybody feels terrible for those families, but this is really a message to Washington, and is separate from those events.
     
    “It wasn’t intended in any way to connect with any weapons used by any crazy people.”
    Asked if people might make that connection, he said: “I see how people will try to make the connection to shootings committed by crazy people. Not that there is an actual connection, though.
    Wait, this is a day of appreciation for the very weapon used by crazy people.  Isn't that a connection, and not just random and coincidental?

    That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".
