的 运动, citing fatal injury reports data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the years 2015 通过 2019, claimed that “Every day more than 100 Americans are killed with guns.” “Wear Orange” is part of Everytown for Gun Safety’s gun control campaign, which is backed by Michael Bloomberg. The effort was met with intense criticism from many on social media.
“This is anti-gun propaganda disguised as virtue,” one campaign detractor 发推文, 加, “CMT has gone down the drain with all other corporations who sell out to the Woke extremists.”
另一个 fumed that by CMT hitting send on the “wear orange” 鸣叫, the network “just lost 75% of your viewers.”
“I for one, will not ever watch any station who champions any campaign against the 2nd Amendment, which is what CMT just did,” wrote the social media user. “You’d think they would know their audiance [原文如此], but you put woke idiots in charge, and you get stupidity.”
在四月份, 拜登总统 announced a set of executive actions and legislative proposals on gun control and declared gun violence “公共卫生危机” while pushing back against criticism that his administration’s actions contravene Second Amendment 权利.
“Nothing I’m about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment,” Biden said at the time. “These are phony arguments suggesting that these are Second Amendment rights at stake from what we’re talking about.”
