STOP Gun Violence Apologists

BENEFITING: Brady Center To Prevent Gun Violence
Fundraiser started on Facebook but this means it gets doubled, so I'll be donating through here.
I was reluctant to post about the Orlando mass shooting because I felt, first, like it wasn't my place to offer platitudes and condolences, (aka the now-despicable 'thoughts and prayers'), and second, because it's not my place to post about a victimized minority community that I'm not a part of. I also can't stomach another gun control fight.
But then I realized there is something I can do, and you can help me. People have done things like this to great success in the past (making donations to Planned Parenthood in honor of Ted Cruz, for example) so here's your chance to put my money where my mouth is. Starting right NOW, at 1:30pm Seattle time, I will donate $10 to the Brady campaign EVERY time you tag me in a gun violence apologist situation.
I'll go all the way up to $500. Someone posting about how this was "a terrorist attack, and not a gun problem"? Tag me. Someone mention the 2nd Amendment? Tag me. Someone using that good old "it's mental illness, not guuuuuuns" bullshit? Tag me. Some gross racist meme about our amazing President coming for your guns? Tag me. Share this. I'm ready. I'm on maternity leave. I got all day AND I'm up ALL NIGHT. I'll keep you posted about how much we raise to combat gun violence. Share and tag away, people.
If, for privacy reasons, you can't tag me on Facebook, screenshot the excuse makers and comment on my FB page or message me. Hold them accountable.
