ALBANY, NY — A New York man came into contact via the internet with the gun control group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, and suffered from Firearm Misinformation as a result.
The 28-year-old man, John Murray, casually came across a series of internet campaigns presented by MDA. Murray was then led to believe that the majority of shoppers at the grocery chain Kroger demanded that people not be allowed to carry a firearm while shopping at their locations.
A family spokesperson said of the incident, “John was exposed to the MDA campaigns for just a few minutes, but it seems to have been enough to cloud his better judgement.”
Family members have taken steps to block gun control-type ads and information from his computer, stating that “they continue to cause more harm than good”.
Murray’s recovery was a speedy one and consisted of reading a brief overview of America’s long and successful history with firearms, and receiving a pocket edition of the U.S. Constitution.
“I don’t know what happened,” said Murray. “All my life I’ve been taught to respect firearms and use them in a safe manner, and I do. It shouldn’t matter what some crazy Moms think. I just need to get back to focusing on the things that matter; like setting aside enough time for the range each week.”
