Following the horrific Paris terror attacks, the anti-gun group Moms Demand Action posted the following response to social media:
Our hearts are with the victims and survivors of the horrific mass shooting and violent attacks in Paris today. pic.twitter.com/vMs5jkH9vI— Moms Demand Action (@MomsDemand) November 13, 2015
"Our hearts are with the victims and survivors of the horrific mass shooting and violent attacks in Paris today," the message read.
But the accompanying image contained text that's a bit more explicit regarding who (or more correctly, what) the group blamed for huge loss of life: "We are united in mourning all lives lost to gun violence."
As you might imagine, the group got hit pretty hard with alternate theories and rebuttals:
@MomsDemand isn't this what you wanted? A whole country unable to defend themselves because the gov't didn't allow their ppl access to guns.— Lil Dave (@FREERBUX)November 14, 2015
