The Blaze’s Dana Loesch appeared on The View this week. Anti-gun group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense In America! (the exclamation point is part of their logo) took the occasion as a chance to engage in vitriol and name-calling.

Forgive me here, but are these moms demanding action at the point of a gun?
Loesch is a conservative, therefore fair game for childish #gunbully name-calling and preemptive accusations of lying. The enraged moms demanded that The View keep Dana off the show, which didn’t happen.
But how about late-term abortion icon Wendy Davis? The Texas Democrat came out overnight for open carry, putting her at odds with many in her own party.
For some reason, Moms Demand Action’s response to Davis’ desperate conversion isn’t quite as full of rage.
Earlier today, Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis announced that she supports new laws that would allow Texans to openly carry loaded firearms in public. Davis’s position is disappointing and dangerous given that there is no federal or state requirement for background checks on private gun sales in Texas, making it easy for felons and other dangerous criminals, including domestic abusers, to get guns.
Current law also makes it easier for victims of domestic abuse to defend themselves. Moms Demand Action! and similar groups never get around to noticing that.
Ashley Sewell tweets for the win.
