What would it look like if Everytown For Gun Safety, and its like, were actually for gun safety as their name implies they are?
For starters, they would use funds raised and donated to implement gun safety courses which they teach the Four Rules of Gun Safety [ 1) Treat every firearm as if it's loaded. 2) Never point a firearm at anything you are not willing to destroy. 3) Always be sure of your target and what is beyond it. 4) Keep your finger off the trigger until you are on target and ready to fire.] free of charge to children and in communities nationwide.
Then, they would promote ways to actively keep citizens safe from people who wish to do them harm.
No, posting a sign advising criminals that there are defenseless victims on site does not count as keeping people safe. Tragically, the opposite has been proven to be true time and time again.
They would also work along side and on behalf of law abiding gun owners to ensure they are are not stripped of their inalienable right to protect themselves and their families due to the negligent and unlawful practices by those who do not respect and adhere to the Four Rules of Gun Safety.
Well, I think you get the idea...
In short, if Bloomberg's shills at Everytown, as well as the rest of the anti second amendment crowd, actually cared one ounce about gun safety, they would be doing exactly what us pro gun rights advocates and organizations have been doing all along. They would be teaching GUN SAFETY instead of promoting ignorance and fear.
But, then again, in order to have "gun sense" you first have to have a foundation built on common sense.
