Glaze's confession will not slow anti-gunners' exploitation of mass shootings

The "gun control" movement requires mass shootings--horrifying, indescribably evil slaughter of innocents, just to gain any public support. When those shootings occur, there is a "playbook" instructing the gun ban lobby on how to exploit them. When asked about the chances of new infringements on that which shall not be infringed, the gun ban jihadists say it depends on how effectively they exploit--their word--the blood of the innocent victims.

Glaze--no longer on the payroll of an organization hoping to make the most of such exploitation--could afford his brief moment of honesty. The anti-gun groups, though, cannot. The lie is all they have. [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend--and Facebook "likes" and "shares" are hugely appreciated.

The GQR playbook makes it obvious that anti-gun activists are more interested in exploiting violence than in "preventing" it.

The playbook's advice to "cite law enforcement support" is problematic for the anti-gun groups. The only way they can do it is with misleading statements and outright lying.

For example, the L.A. Times said that "police groups" wanted more gun control. And a Times Daily article (more like an editorial) entitled "Police Know Urgency of Gun Control" said,
"We should listen to what our law enforcement officers have to say...the men and women who patrol our streets are advocates for greater restrictions on gun ownership." But every "police officer" they quoted was a chief or commissioner. Not one was a working street cop.

Meanwhile, the police-only website PoliceOne.com surveyed men and women who really do "patrol our streets." 95% said magazine capacity limits would not reduce crime, 71% said that an assault weapons ban would have no effect on crime (and another 20% said it would have a harmful effect), 80% said that an armed citizenry could help deter crime, and 76% were in favor of arming teachers and other school staff .
