Someone infiltrated a CeaseFire PA invitation-only fundraiser (by above board means) and is reporting back. It’s funny, when I was growing up in Delaware County, Radnor Township was about as Republican as Republican could get, and as this poster mentions “I have seen Radnor Twp transition from a fairly conservative community to a full fledged Liberal Haven.” Yes, and it’s been sad to watch. It is now pretty obviously a hot bed of anti-gun activism, and more evidence that the new front lines for gun rights in Pennsylvania will be in the Southeast as the continuing success of the Democratic Party in the suburbs swings the state’s political center decisively leftward and more southeastern.
One thing to note is that CeaseFire is getting very disciplined on their messaging. It should be noted that the ED (Max Nacheman. The post notes that Dan Muroff is ED, but I think he’s President, though it’s possible Nacheman is out, and we didn’t hear about it) used to work for Bloomberg, so if there’s extensive coordination between Bloomberg’s group and CFPA, it wouldn’t surprise me. They are avoiding all the loony tunes nonsense the Bradys and CSGV are descending into, and setting very short term goals and trying to build public support for a real movement. In short, I think these people mean to be serious, which makes CeaseFire PA a group to keep a close eye on.
