NAT’L – OPINION – When Single Issue Groups Choose Politics Instead

Riots have overtaken cities and entire zones of cities have become utterly lawless, with local businesses getting hollowed out and children shot. The institutions we’re supposed to be able to turn to for defense, the police, have been nowhere to be seen; ordered to stand down by gutless politicians who care more about appeasing social justice mobs than protecting residents. As a result, Americans are taking defense into their own hands, buying out gun shops across the country. In a rational world, anti-gun groups would see the surge in gun sales this lawlessness has10   18 caused and come out hard against the riots and the neutering of the police. And while we’re discussing the irrational behavior of groups behaving against their own best interests, I wanted to flag this story from a college friend who recently started an advocacy group in New Jersey and tried in vain to place a billboard ad promoting their message. One of the founders, Dan Francisco, told me, “We spoke to the NAACP on the phone. The New Jersey chapter was interested, but once they kicked it up to the national chapter, they told us they didn’t want to be part of this message . We both know BLM doesn’t care and isn’t even really about black rights. We are trying to attack the [gun rights] conversation from the left. And so far, predictably, none of the leftist groups will stand by our message.” Somewhat recently I kicked up a firestorm of controversy when I  explained here why I’m not an NRA member, and it my argument boiled down to I don’t think that this single issue group promoting gun rights is actually single issue in focus; they cater way too much to conservative politics and in the process, alienate would-be allies in the process. Those who care about safety in the Black community and those working against gun rights should be having their own realizations about how dedicated to their mission their own single-issue organizations are.  [full article]
