Gabby Giffords: Gun Rights Are Part of War on Women

Handguns are the great equalizers. They allow a 90-lb woman to stand up to a 200-lb thug — or maybe even a whole gang of them. But that doesn’t prevent us from having to listen to rhetoric like this:

On July 30, gun control proponent Gabby Giffords argued that guns are part of a war on women being waged by domestic abusers and that more gun control is needed now.

In an op-ed co-written by Katie Ray-Jones and published on CNN.com, Giffords argued that federal firearm laws barring possession of firearms by those “under domestic violence protection orders” or with “misdemeanor domestic violence convictions” do not go far enough. She suggests that these laws too often only impact people in a married context and need to be “extended to address dating partner abuse.”

On the contrary, those laws already go too far, allowing the vengeful to deprive their alienated exes of their constitutional rights by merely making a frivolous accusation.

Meanwhile,

Breitbart News reported on gun scholar John Lott’s work which suggests women in America are not made safer by more gun control but by greater access to guns for self-defense.

In his seminal work More Guns, Less Crime, Lott shows that women are among the top beneficiaries of expanded concealed carry laws. Conversely, crime against women rises where gun control is more stringent.

But facts are irrelevant to liberals who would exploit public sympathy to advance statist tyranny.

GABRIELLE-GIFFORDS
Giffords: A tool exploited by power-mad authoritarians who want you disarmed.

On a tip from Henry.

    Thanks to the idiotic guns laws in Massachusetts, which even prevent someone from getting pepper spray without first obtaining a Firearms ID card at a cost of $100 for four years, this young woman, Jennifer Martel is dead. She was killed by a savage named Jared Remy, the son of a well-known former Red Sox player and now broadcaster. Had she been able to defend herself, she might be alive today.
    The only good news is the Remy did plead guilty to murder one instead of making the families go through a trial.

    Thanks liberals, you’re the ones conducting the war on women.

    People like Giffords, the hoplophobes, the gun grabbers, the Liberals, the other criminals are actively promoting rape and murder. They do this because they inhibit decent Americans from defending themselves. They don’t care about your life. They actually want you to be raped and murdered, because it feeds their sick adoration of victims.

    It is time to hold these scum personally responsible for enabling rape and murder. Make them social pariahs. Call them out and denounce them.

    Hey, Gabby, how many rapes did you enable today. How many kids did you murder?

    So the drooling, diaper wearing, ventriloquists dummy is at it again spewing her anti-gun hatred and propaganda, where is her traitorous hubby Mark, probably washing the urine stains caused by his wife’s incontinence out of his pants leg,

    The following from the Gifford/Jones article could not be more absurd. These anti-gun activists are hideous and deranged. As if they are going to keep guns out of the hands of crazed, determined, lawless stalkers, by taking guns away from the victims and anyone else who might be able to protect the victims. Evil, pure evil.

    “This month, just outside of Houston, a man police say had a history of abusing and threatening women got his hands on a gun and executed six members of his ex-wife’s family — including four children. On that day, local law enforcement officials believe he was on his way to hunt down other family members when, thankfully, they ended his rampage.

    In our country, it’s a sadly common story: An abuser or stalker gains access to guns and destroys the lives of women and families in our communities.

    That’s why it is time forCongress to address this lethal mix of domestic violence and guns. Our leaders must pass laws that prevent stalkers and abusers from accessing
    guns to intimidate, hurt or kill women.”
