Just an FYI it appears CSGV has had their twitter account restored, for those who don’t remember pertinent details can be found here. I would advise anybody active on the 2nd Amendment scene to keep an eye on them. Tango attempted to reason with them, wanting only an apology and got nothing but rudeness in return. I strongly belive that Ladd Everitt of CSGV belives he’s perfectly correct in making personal threats on political opponents and their families. He believes he’s justified, and I can’t speculate where he’d stop.
Keep an eye on him and if you see any inappropriate content, or threatening behavior please make it a point to inform those who are the target of the attack, and the administrators of the site that is being used to launch the attack.
I’m perfectly fine with them publishing their anti-rights message and political boilerplate, that’s all well and good. That’s easy to work with, and frankly the reality is it does our side good. But when it comes to personal attacks against individuals who are simply giving the other side of the argument, that I cannot stand for.
Maybe CSGV and their despicable staff can behave themselves, but how they handled this recent controversy, and ones in the past tells me they likely can’t change their stripes.
I will also note that you have seen no mention of this behavior from any of the other anti-rights lobbyists and activists. It is indeed trolls all the way up.
Be safe, there are monsters out there.
**Update** Can you say “Psychological Projection”?
CSGV’s promise to victims and survivors of gun violence: We will NEVER stop standing with you, including when you are harassed, intimidated and/or threatened by gun rights activists.
Yeah they’re fixin’ to get back at it.
