The FAQ leads me to think that this organization wants to address "gun safety" through more laws. However, here's their "code" (said with suitable reverence). You have to wonder what the heck is the point in pushing this "code." To say that these practices need another party outside of your local firearms trainer/the NRA/etc to be advocated is bit silly and also redundant. It also makes you wonder what a "ManhattanMommy" (Rebecca Bond, founder of this organization) actually knows about firearms and firearm safety. I engaged the ARF hive mind and lo and behold, Mrs Bond is a DNC donor on top of giving to Gabby Gifford's PAC!

Any gun owner that is quasi interested in gun rights knows that a "gun safety" organization based out of New York City should be automatically red flagged. Then you throw in her article at the Huffington Post and then this bit about the oh-so important story of her schooling decision for her child and something tells me that this marketing professional isn't a Bloomberg drone like the other "Mommys hate guns and mommys know better than you even if it's Bloomberg telling them what to say" organizations but rather a house wife looking to make some bank working for a "cause." In case you didn't know, non profits are a nice way to make some money "helping" people. Marketers gotta market.
I will update this post if I learn more about this organization that's sure to disappear in the next year or so. Watch the interview she did with Piers Morgan (!) here for some true vapidity and oft repeated platitudes.
Here's the earth shattering "code" that won't be seen anywhere.
I'll tell you what, Rebecca Bond. You're not going to do anything about gun violence. You don't seem to be the slightest bit interested in getting down to the true socio economic causes of violence (like all of the anti gun movement) and your organization is a waste of time but hey, it should be a sweet tax writeoff. I mean, it beats wondering why places with strict gun control have high murder rates and realizing that outside of a few rotten inner cities, the US is actually safer than the UK. If you want the facts, go to Billy Johnson (video below). You know, try doing....research. Or just prattle on about you're doing good work and tell me not to be irresponsible with my guns. Real compelling message, that. Currently, she's arguing with me on Twitter.
