Those who treasure our priceless Second Amendment liberties need to be very careful where we donate, lest we shoot ourselves in the foot. Anti-Constitutional moonbats can be found behind even the most seemingly benevolent enterprises, including the Wounded Warrior Project, as Tom Gresham of Gun Talk Radio reveals:
We were disappointed when the Leslie Coleman, PR director for WWP, said they couldn’t come on the show … because we “are related to firearms.”
“While we appreciate the interest in having a WWP representative on your show on Veterans Day we are not able to participate in interviews or activities with media/organizations that are related to firearms,” said Ms. Coleman in her email.
Coleman pules that returning vets have used guns to commit suicide. Apparently they would prefer suicides to fling themselves off bridges or the tops of buildings.
WWP also disapproves of knives, refusing to “co-brand” with manufacturers. Vets might cut themselves.
Keeping guns and knives company on the no co-brand list are alcohol and pornography.
Despite the great work WWP does, the gun issue is not trivial, especially in light of the firestorm of anti-gun propaganda the media has whipped up in response to Sandy Hook. Gresham has a “No Shrug” policy that entails never doing business with any outfit that labels gun-owners as undesirables, because to shrug and take the abuse is to participate in a campaign of demonization intended to result in the denial of our right to bear arms.
Good thing WWP doesn’t have a monopoly. There is no shortage of organizations that help vets.
