How delusional is Heather Martens? How high is the sky?
As I’m sure you can tell, I’m not a fan of “Protect Minnesota,” “Citizens for a Safer Minnesota” or whatever shell organization Heather is operating under at the moment.
Heather has always been on the fringe, claiming that gun owners:
“…want to point their guns out the window into the darkness and fire, and they don’t want to be held responsible for who they hit.”
Today, Heather hit me with a new one:
“One out of every five Minnesotans is likely to have a criminal record. People with criminal records face serious barriers to finding jobs.”
First off, I sincerely doubt this statistic is true, but let’s imagine for a moment it is. Heather is saying that one out of every five people on the street is a criminal, yet insists that no one needs to carry a gun.
Heather has a history of riding on the coattails of other, larger activist groups, and claiming their participation as part of her own, in this case, “TakeAction Minnesota.” In this email, she pushes a “fair hiring practices” agenda.
In my opinion, and the opinion of most with an IQ exceeding their age, hiring practices have little to do with gun violence. But not to disappoint, Heather manages to try to blend the issues:
“It simply should not be easier to get a gun than a job. Join Protect Minnesota, along with TakeAction Minnesota in telling corporate employers – Fair Hiring practices now!”
At the risk of Inflating Protect Minnesota’s stature beyond what it is — a single person with an email address, I post this to show the kind of irrational disconnection from reality we have to deal with when try to pass legislation to save lives, and secure gun owners’ rights in Minnesota.
