Some might remember last week when the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) went into a screaming meltdown of horrified outrage, on Facebook (oops--Facebook apparently didn't like that one, and took it down), on their blog, at Opposing Views, and over and over again on their Twitter feed. What has them stomping their little feet is our various responses to the Brady Campaign's "Too Many Victims" candle burning and "gun control" party on Jan. 8.
CSGV's little temper tantrum specifically mentioned blog posts by several gun rights advocacy bloggers, including my St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner column about the event, and about the futility of burning candles to stop violence.
What offended them the most, though, was the video (below), made by Joe Huffman and Baron Barnett. If you haven't seen it, it's definitely worth the time:
Oddly enough, though, CSGV lovingly echoes their ideological ally Abby Spangler, of Protest Easy Guns, when she says something quite similar to what we said, on our way to becoming "jerks":
I decided that someone had to speak out and say this is unacceptable. We're not just going to light candles to mourn the victims.Double standards much?
