Evolve Together, Slight Return

February 25th, 2014

I wrote about these guys last week. At the time, I really couldn't find much to link them directly to any of the regular gun-control groups. This isn't too surprising. Their new generation of advocates has adapted well to social media and they've learned to cover their tracks.

Then Mike Weisser's name came up. He calls himself the "gun guy" at Evolve Together, and he has a column at the Huffington Post. Apparently, he's the "gun guy" because he runs a shop somewhere, and that qualifies him to decide what's good for us. He's not a fan …

Evolve Together

February 19th, 2014

This video has been making the rounds lately, and I think it's hilarious.

It was conceived by Evolve Together. Founder Rebecca Bond came out briefly and vaguely on the general issue of violence after Sandy Hook, but she doesn't appear to be aligned with any of the usual gun-control groups. Of course, the anti-gunners have learned to be sneaky with their affiliations and finances, and it's suspicious that they haven't reached out to any of the mainstream gun groups for support.

The video itself was produced by Saatchi & Saatchi, who have done some gun-control work in the past, but I don't know if that was relevant in this case.

Despite the out-of-period weapon (repeaters weren't around until 80 years after ratification), it contains a message gun folks really need to take it to heart.
