A Girl & A Gun Director: I’m Taking the Word ‘Mom’ Back from Moms Demand Action

Speaking to the 2018 Gun Rights Policy Conference, A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG) Executive Director Robyn Sandoval declared that she is “taking the word ‘Mom’ back” from Moms Demand Action. Sandoval, whose youngest child is battling brain cancer, described the qualities of a mother as a fighter and protector.

In her speech, Sandoval emphasized the need to initiate conversations with others in order to advocate for gun rights. She explained four archetypes of people and how to tailor advocacy messages to them in order to optimize their engagement and understanding. According to Sandoval, “Even the strongest most-fervent antigunner fits into one these categories, and by listening, you can usually craft a no into a yes.”

Attack on the Second Amendment

Too often people rely on their information from mainstream news and get caught up in the emotion following a tragic incident. We have to be sure that our 2A rights are resolute throughout time.

There are many “concessions” being entertained that whittle away our 2A rights. While they may seem reasonable on the surface, any erosion of our Constitutional rights will be devastating for our country. All of these stand to protect us and serve as a backbone for the laws of the land.
