Shannon Watt's Canned Interview

Want to read a straight PR piece written by a PR professional?  Here's Shannon Watt's USA Today 'Interview' w/ what I'm sure were pre-arranged questions and answers.

It reads like a checklist of talking points and platitudes.

"We don't blame gun owners, just the NRA which 5 million gun owners belong to and 'open carry activists (who she has called violent rapists)". 

"We don't want to ban guns, just the ones we don't like or know anything about"

"We have lots of members who liked our Facebook pages"

Just take a look at this response:
We believe that you have the right to protect yourself with a weapon if that's what you choose to do. I don't (choose to) because the data shows that a gun in your house is more likely to be used against you or by one of your family members to commit suicide. I have five children that I don't want to run that risk with. But that's absolutely someone's right.
Nice little subtle digs there eh?  Defending yourself w/ a firearm is actually you putting your children at risk for 'Rights'. 

And now she's got all that Bloomberg money backing her.
