black lives matter gunsHaving seen their plan to impose a national gun registration scheme in 2013 washed away in the face of a grassroots tidal wave, the anti-gunners are hunting around for allies to try and replicate that model.

Enter Black Lives Matter.

Politico reports:

“Groups aligned with Black Lives Matter have started taking part in weekly conference calls with Washington’s top gun control advocates. A group related to the Center for American Progress has been distributing new talking points to get away from language that they say alienates black communities. And on Tuesday, the Joyce Foundation will hold community meetings in Richmond, Virginia, to discuss the intersection of gun violence, policing and mass incarceration — with gatherings planned for Milwaukee and Stockton, California, in the coming months.”

Their goal is to use Black Lives Matter tactics to ramp up the intensity of gun control activists to turn the screws on Congress to bend to their whims of gutting the Second Amendment

The protest movement has made national news for violent rhetoric and disruptive protests.

On August 29th, the Daily Caller reported:

“Black Lives Matter protesters marching on the Minnesota state fair on Saturday spewed violent anti-cop rhetoric just hours after a Harris County, TX sheriff’s deputy was ambushed and executed at a Houston-area gas station.

“Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” activists with the St. Paul, Minn. branch of Black Lives Matter chanted while marching behind a group of police officers down a highway just south of the state fair grounds.”

And Black Lives Matter agitators bullied Democrat Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders off the stage at his own rally and have beaten down other Democrats rhetorical insistence that All Lives Matter.

In fact, at the first Democrat Debate, the candidates were asked if All Lives Mattered or Black Lives Mattered.

Fearing an uprising at campaign events and public embarrassment, each candidate answered Black Lives Matter.

Now the gun grabbers are hoping to employ these same aggressive tactics as Politico reports:

“One new approach some groups are adopting is to heighten the intensity among existing supporters, not so much as find new ones.

That’s essentially taking a page from the NRA’s playbook. After the shooting deaths of 26 students and educators at Sandy Hook Elementary, polling showed 80 to 90 percent of Americans supported a 2013 Senate proposal to close loopholes for background checks. But swing senators said opponents of any new gun laws called their offices 10 times more frequently than proponents. Since then, the gun violence prevention movement has made overcoming this intensity gap a top priority.”

The irony of the situation is that the gun grabbing groups black lives matters are teaming up with have pushed the very same police tactics such as stop and frisk and cracking down on so-called “illegal guns” that have led protesters to storm the streets.
