TOMS Shoes Spent Millions of Company Dollars Pushing a Gun-Confiscation Agenda;
Company Is Now Being Run by Creditors

Weird how improperly diverting company funds to an irrelevant and indeed detrimental personal crusade could result in a company being forced into receivership.

Back in February of 2019, footwear company TOMS Shoes cheered the passage of gun control bills in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives, and pledged to do all it could to ensure the anti-gun bills became law. Company founder Blake Mycoskie is a big fan of gun control laws, and spent millions of dollars in company funds to help push for the "universal background check" bill passed by the house....

Well, the Senate still hasn’t passed HR 8, but as it turns out Mycoskie's work with the shoe company he started may very well be done. According to Reuters, creditors are taking control of the company, which has been losing money and was in danger of being unable to pay a $300-million loan due in 2020.

Meanwhile, USA Today runs an editorial scolding the Texas churchgoers who took out their guns to subdue a killer:

The reality of Wilson’s heroism is a lot more complex. He wasn’t just an ordinary parishioner, as gun advocates may want you to believe. The church’s volunteer security team member is a firearms instructor, gun range owner and former reserve deputy with a local sheriff’s department, according to a New York Times detailed account.

In other words, he's exactly the kind of man you want around with a firearm. But we know nothing about the at least six other parishioners who also appeared to draw their handguns at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas.

And that's terrifying.

I think that's the sound of the media dog-whistling for "Routine Social Media Background Checks" on law-abiding citizens who broke no laws and in fact were helpful in preventing a massacre.

Incidentally, of those six other churchgoers -- the ones it's "terrifying" to not have Fusion GPS digging dirt on -- only one besides Jack Wilson fired a shot. The others only drew their weapons, then advanced on the now-downed killer to keep aim on him in case he was not incapacitated and tried to fire his gun again.

But they didn't shoot -- they exercised quite excellent fire discipline under very stressful and startling sudden real-life real-time gun combat.

So obviously the media needs to sick Oliver Darcy, Andrew Kaczinsky, and the doxxing squad of the Daily Beast on them.
