After successfully pressuring comedian Jay Leno into cancelling his long-held appearance at this month's SHOT Show in Las Vegas, former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg's anti-gun Moms Demand Action is at it again. This time, they're going after comedian Jeff Foxworthy (famous for "you might be a redneck if...") and country legend Alan Jackson for upcoming appearances at the 2014 NRA annual meetings in Nashville. From the Mom's Demand Action Facebook page:
Alan Jackson and Jeff Foxworthy agreed to open this year's NRA convention after the NRA pushed to arm convicted criminals, blocked federal gun violence research, and board members promoted armed insurrection.

Mom's Demand may have been successful in bullying Leno into pulling away from the gun industry with lies and distortions, but they'll have no luck doing the same to Foxworthy and Jackson. In fact, Foxworthy will probably make fun of them during his appearance for even trying. Foxworthy and Jackson's fan base is largely made up of members of the National Rifle Association and avid Second Amendment supporters. In their lack of self-awareness, Moms Demand once again is going after the wrong constituency with false accusations.
