Sebastian TBFKASIH notes a Laddite who knows absolutely nothing about firearms except that she hates them. Weer'd, in comments, states she's not just the run of the mill PuSH'er but one of the anti-gun lobby's leaders.
Who is she, you ask?
Mary Kay Mace is from Illinois. Her daughter was murdered several years ago during the shootings at NIU. Since then she's been on a crusade to pass laws that would have done nothing to prevent her daughter's murder such as opposing Concealed Carry in Wisconsin along w/ Illinois and pushing for an expansion of the NICS database for those w/ mental health issues.
For the NIU shooter, Illinois does not allow concealed carry anywhere, current bills would have maintained schools as 'gun free zones'. The shooter also wouldn't have been effected by an expansion of NICS since he was never involuntarily committed or determined by a doctor/court to be a danger or unable to handle his own affairs.
So just like Joan Peterson, Colin Goddard and others, she's taken her grief and funneled it into a cult like fanaticism for gun control, no matter the facts or effectiveness of what she proposes.
It would be sad if she wasn't trying to keep me as defenseless as her daughter was.
