Kinder Egg Campaign
Moms Deliver Kinder Surprise Eggs in Major Cities to Demonstrate Lack of Common Sense Gun Laws Prior to Senate Vote on Legislation in Early April.
On Good Friday, a holiday celebrated by many Americans, Moms Demand Action is hand-delivering Kinder Surprise Eggs to newsrooms in major cities to relay an alarming truth: In America, it’s easier to access an assault weapon than a chocolate Easter egg.
Kinder Surprise Eggs have been banned in America since 1938 due to a law prohibiting inedible objects inside food, which could pose a hazard to young children.
“During Easter weekend, Moms Demand Action is asking all Americans to use ‘gun sense’ when answering one simple question: ‘Why is it easier for an American to buy an assault weapon than it is to buy a chocolate Easter egg?,’” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
“It doesn’t make sense that a chocolate Easter egg is regarded as more hazardous to our children’s safety than an assault weapon. The majority of Americans support common sense gun laws. And as Congress prepares to return to Washington, we need to put this reality into a context that people can understand,” said Watts.
