**************** LFA 111% PRESS RELEASE **********************
On Sunday, December 13, 2015 members of the constitutional task force, Liberty For All, deployed to Seattle from across the State of Washington. The deployment was in direct response to the pro-gun-control group Moms Demand Action and their publicly-stated concerns that their demonstration might meet with potential violence from pro Second Amendment groups.
In order to ensure the safety of the group and its anti-Second Amendment rally, our task force selflessly set out to provide a security detail to ensure and protect the members of Moms Demand Action constitutionally-protected right to free speech, even though LFA principally disagrees with the solutions they offer to end gun violence.
As it turns out, the address provided by MDA to the LFA security team was fraudulent. Instead of the correct venue [Green Lake], the address given was directly across the street from Stroum Jewish Community Center, at precisely the time that parents were arriving to pick children up from services.
The question that must now be asked is this: was this a cynical attempt by Moms Demand Action to intimidate the Jewish community, or was their intent to mislead the Jewish Community into believing they were being openly threatened by radical Islamists?
In any event, neither of these scenarios played out. Instead, a healthy and friendly dialogue ensued between the leadership of LFA and several members of the Stroum Center regarding the inherent, constitutionally-protected right to possess firearms. Within the larger group, LFA found concerned, but supportive members of the Jewish Community.
The entire LFA organization wishes to state very clearly, that we will never resort to such underhanded tactics or deception. We firmly believe in every citizen’s right to keep and bear arms. We stand tall and declare, in no uncertain terms, that we will continue our mission to ensure liberty for all.
