(National Sentinel) No Class: We’ve always been sympathetic to former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., after she survived a mass shooting incident at a campaign event in January 2011. That’s a horrific thing to experience and we sympathize with all victims of violence, no matter what the cause.

But her gun control organization has gone too far in a new campaign aimed at flipping pro-gun rights congressional districts: It is using 3-D statuettes of a child cowering under a school desk to depict an “active shooter” situation.

As Townhall reports:

The Giffords gun control group has made it their mission to flip 10 pro-gun Congressional districts across the nation. The group wants to replace legislators who “have long prioritized the gun lobby’s agenda over taking action to reduce gun violence and protect public safety” with those who “are committed to protecting kids from gun violence.”

The group plans to display a 3-D printed child hiding under a desk, which represents “active shooter drills” that take place on school grounds.

“Young people took this frustration and tapped into the proud American tradition of raising our voices. Now they are demanding action,” Giffords said in a statement.

“I am proud of them for making it clear to the gun lobby and the NRA that we will no longer tolerate a world where politicians vote against the public safety of the communities they represent. Together we are organizing to bring gun safety champions to Congress this November so we can make real, meaningful changes to save lives.”

Frankly, that’s disgusting. But besides being in poor taste, the emotions the statuette are meant to trigger are precisely why we have nonsensical gun control laws that put school children at risk in the first place.

Meanwhile, we have murder rates of kids and young people in places like Chicago, St. Louis, and other Democrat-run cities that are worse than war zones, but of course, Gifford and others pushing their gun control agenda never want to talk about that.

There are any number of ‘common sense’ proposals on the table — arming teachers, increasing armed school resource officers, bulking up physical security at schools — among them.

But Left-wing Democrats have consistently opposed nearly all of them, almost as if they’d prefer school shootings would continue so they can push more gun control.

Democrats always say, “We’re not coming after your guns!” But their actions always suggest otherwise.
