Biden's Potential VP Running Mates To Participate In Gun Control Series
The series, titled “Demanding Women,” will be hosted by Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action beginning in late April until next month. Everytown is founded by failed Democrat nominee, “Mini” Mike Bloomberg, to strengthen gun control.
The Hill reported that former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) would be joining the series on April 28, while former Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) would take part on May 4. Two other previous Democrat presidential nominees Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) would also be participating on May 7 and May 18, respectively.
In a statement from Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action, she said that the leaders joining the “Demanding Women” series are doing everything to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and its problems with “systematic racism and inequities.” Watts also added that the women actively participating in the series would be leading the conversation to “demand a better, safer world for every American.”
Earlier this month, Mike Bloomberg-founded Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety made headlines when they urged governors all over the country to ignore Trump administration’s orders to label gun stores as essential businesses.
In an updated set of guidelines released by Trump’s Department of Homeland Security in late March, the admin named gun manufacturers and retailers as essential businesses, which means they can operate nationwide despite the lockdown caused by the coronavirus.
Founder of Moms Demand Action, Watts, posted on their website and claimed that lobbying for guns has “fear-mongered” to increase gun sales during the pandemic and that President Donald Trump just pedaled a myth that “guns make us safer.” Watts added that Trump cares more about making gun dealers richer than saving American lives.
Biden has promised to pick a female running mate in the upcoming presidential elections in November. It has been said that he is considering Warren, Harris, and Abrams. The gaffe-filled former vice president announced on the “Late Late Show with James Corden” that they will be choosing his running mate on May 1.
