Moms With Guns Founder Shares Obama Post: ‘Where Is an Assassin When You Need One?’

The post about the president’s Texas visit has since been deleted, and the Moms With Guns Facebook account has been closed by founder Kathy Perkins.

Moms With Guns Founder Shares Post-'Where is Assassin When You Need One'


The founder of the Moms With Guns website is under fire for a Facebook photo that she shared of President Barack Obama’s recent visit to Texas. The uproar is not over the image, but what she wrote in the post: “Where is an assasin (sic) when you need one,” according to Liberaland.

The post has since been deleted and the Moms With Guns Facebook account has been closed by founder Kathy Perkins. But it was not done before Liberaland captured a screenshot of the page.

Before it was deleted, one commenter, Todd Thozeski of Seven Hills, Ohio, commented, “Duh,’ while Liberaland says another wrote, “I know…I’m amazed it hasn’t happened yet.”

Perkins’ Moms With Guns website and her twitter account, @MomsWithGuns, have not been closed, but do not refer to the assassin comment.
