Once again, ProgressNow New Mexico’s executive director pushes their gun control agenda immediately after a shooting, this time in Roswell. Why can’t they just pray like the rest of us?
The immediate response to a tragedy by pushing an agenda is troubling. Does the Left know how to operate without using times of tragedy and emotion to convey their point?
Pat Davis has a history of doing this. Just a month ago Davis was among the first to shout “gun control” while the smoke was still clearing after a shooting in Colorado. Really? Is this the best he can do?

If it weren’t enough for Davis to push his agenda immediately, he comes out with an attack piece on the Albuquerque Journal for their use of gun ads. It’s a free country, right? I would suppose that there are more pro-gun people who read the Albuquerque Journal than there are anti-gun activists.
Insensitive? Really? It is the height of insensitivity and hypocracy to push one’s agenda immediately after a tragedy– but, hey, Pat Davis doesn’t look in the mirror often, does he? Anybody can see the double standard he has for himself verses the high standard he hold others (and especially conservatives) to. Think Davis is a hypocrite? Tell the Albuquerque Journal you think so by sending a letter to the editor telling them YOU support the Albuquerque Journal and that you support THEIR use of the first amendment in choosing any ads they wish!

Lastly if Pat Davis actually wants to solve the violence problem, why doesn’t he try to help fix societies problems which breed this activity, instead of going after our guns which are mere inanimate objects?
Where is Pat Davis going after gangs which kill many poorer people and minorities in our cities and drive up the crime numbers? Where is Pat Davis condemning violent video games and violence in movies that our culture lauds?
Pat Davis is an example of what the Left really is– we do not see care for the victims and their families, but an agenda. Wouldn’t Davis have a well-rounded perspective and not rely on a constant anti-gun mantra if he did truly care?!
