anti-gunner propaganda strategy

https://www.nraila.org/articles/20181102/former-atf-agent-pulls-mask-off-giffords-s-plans-for-federal-ar-15-registration
When former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and husband Mark Kelly launched Americans for Responsible Solutions (now named Giffords) in early 2013, gun owners were assured that the group sought moderate “common-sense solutions” to gun violence. The group admonished NRA for not working to “to find the balance between our rights” and gun regulation. Giffords and Kelly explained, “we don't want to take away your guns any more than we want to give up the two guns we have locked in a safe at home.”

This, of course, was all a marketing ploy. From its inception, Giffords has pushed the same warmed-over gun control policies as their less messaging-savvy peers.

To help their anti-gun allies better deceive the public, in 2016 Giffords put out a gun control messaging manual titled, “A Guide to Understanding and Engaging Americans on the Need for Stronger Gun Laws.” In a section labelled, “The Do’s and Don’ts of Talking About Gun Violence,” the guide made clear to gun control supporters that “Talk about creating a national gun registry, or banning or confiscating guns” was a definite “Don’t.” The group went on to falsely contend none of those measures “are policy priorities or have widespread support among gun violence prevention organizations.”

Not only is a national gun registry a priority for gun control advocates generally, as former Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent and current Giffords Senior Policy Advisor David Chipman made clear to The Hill this week, it is an explicit policy priority for Giffords.

In response to a question about AR-15 rifles, Chipman responded, “What I support is treating them just like machineguns.”

and gun regulation. Giffords and Kelly explained, “we don't want to take away your guns any more than we want to give up the two guns we have locked in a safe at home.”

They violated their own “don’ts” list. Attack the NRA or the Second Amendment.

Liars, balance is the last thing these communists are after.

5. There is no "balance" when it comes to Constitutional Rights

The only two choices are Rights or Tyranny.

Not one inch.

6. Someone should ask the Space Shuttle Door Gunner if he ever got that AR-15 he wanted

https://www.google.com/search?q=Mark+Kelly+tries+to+buy+AR15&rlz=1C1GGRV_enUS752US752&oq=Mark+Kelly+tries+to+buy+AR15&aqs=chrome..69i57.16124j0j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

He tried some bullshit excuse about showing how easy it was to buy one, but forget to mention he wanted to have a custom trigger installed and had to wait for approval from the city for the sale
