Empowerment: Women speak out against gun control, a real war on women; ‘I was unarmed and raped’

Bingo. Being a proponent of gun rights is pro-woman. Of course, if you scratch a progressive, you will find a sexist. Earlier today, they attacked attorney Gayle Trotter for speaking in favor of gun rights at today’s senate hearing.

Some (progressive men, natch) also attacked women in general. Believe you have the right to protect yourself from an attack? You must be stupid.

Wow.

The sane speak out and point out a real war on women: Gun bans.

And these brave women speak out about that. They were attacked and unarmed.

Never again.

They don’t know. And they don’t care; they know what’s best for you, silly girls! Conservatives seek to protect women and empower them to defend themselves.

Progressives seek to control them. And if a few get raped along the way, no biggie! Just look at Occupy camps. The end, and The Cause ™, justifies the means.

Dana Loesch weighs in with some more sanity. Gun ban zealots are waging an actual war on women. Last summer, conservative women on Twitter fought like girls and pointed that out. That must continue. The Left constantly harps about “women’s issues.” Well, guess what? The right to defend themselves is one.

Boom.

Sorry, ladies. Progressives don’t want you better protected.

Precisely. War on women? Look to the anti-gun zealots.

        That’s the trolls’ problem. They want so badly to say something hateful, but they have no facts to refute our posts, so they have to a) bring up something else, b) make an ad hominem attack (racist!) or c) blame Bush.

        • Zanshi

          I loved how he brought an AR-15 into the debate as if that was the be-all, end-all as to how a woman should be armed to defend herself.

      • v1cious

        A woman can’t walk down the street with an AR-15 to fend off rapists. Happy?

        • Justin Levesque

          Depends on the state the woman in question is in. In an Open-Carry state, a woman (or anyone else) of legal age CAN in fact walk down the street carrying an AR-15 if she wants. Or a shotgun. Or a handgun.
          Not that I would recommend it. Concealed carry is better in many cases. I think it’s better if the criminal element knows that SOME people are armed, but not who; makes their chosen career much more dangerous. That, and the look of surprise on a prospective rapist’s face when his victim puts two in his chest as he fumbles with his fly.

          • $8245944

            Excellent.

          • Justin Levesque

            In the interest of honesty, I was encouraged to get my concealed carry permit by (dramatic pause) A COP!
            While I am not a firearms instructor, I have taught several women the basics of firearms, and have gotten many more to take a class and get their concealed carry permits. I think it’s 20 or so, I don’t count. Each one is a victory.

          • $8245944

            Thank you so much. I don’t know if you realize how important your words are to some of us.

          • Justin Levesque

            Thanks aren’t necessary, but you’re welcome. Two things I drill when talking to women when discussing firearms-issues: NO ONE needs to be a victim, and the concept of self defense with extreme prejudice.

          • $8245944

            I just want you to know good men like you deserve respect and admiration. You’ve got mine.

          • $8245944

            😉

        • Zanshi

          So just because carrying around an AR-15 is unfeasible, women shouldn’t be allowed to own one at all to keep in her home? Really?? That’s some stellar logic there, Cheech. #NotReally

      Why do you hate women?

      • v1cious

        Yeah cause the Tea Party is concerned about women’s safety. That’s why they killed VAWA.

        • $8245944

          It’s already against the law to attack a woman, doofus. You just want another layer of bureaucracy.

          Why do you want to prevent me from protecting myself and my children from violent sexual predators? Why do you hate women and children?

          • v1cious

            You guys do love your hyperbole, don’t you? I don’t recall saying I didn’t support conceal/carry, but way to put words in my mouth. Also, your new hero Gayle Trotter stated herself that a 12 gauge is more than enough to defend your home.

          • $8245944

            Don’t decide for me what I believe is necessary to defend my life. How very fascist of you.

          • Justin Levesque

            For some people, a shotgun is enough. That being said, there are some (women and men) who can’t handle the recoil of a 12 gauge. In that case, a semi-auto rifle in a small caliber is the next best thing. Anyone can learn to shoot an AR platform rifle, and a .223/5.56x45mm has very little recoil at all.

          • $8245944

            A handgun is easier for me. A shotgun would be too cumbersome with children behind me.

          • Zanshi

            A 12 gauge shotgun is far more powerful, is heavier, and is the most effective way to kill someone, despite the intent to simply maim. You’re going after the wrong rifles, sport.

        • Frustrated Teacher

          VAWA was allowed to die because progressives began using as a social engineering tool and filled it with needless pork and gunk. Even the Supreme Court and ACLU had problems with parts of it. But since you have decided to paint it as a ‘Tea Party’ issue, I see there will be no reasoning with you. Keep lying and smearing.

          • $8245944

            That’s why we use “hyperbole.” The left doesn’t argue in good faith.

  • b_truit

    I’m in law enforcement, mother is carrying, wife is carrying. Ladies it’s common sense, Get trained so you will be confident when that time comes to use it. I’m not worried about soccer mom shooting at me. I question the motives of any man who try’s to steer any women (that is sane and can lawfully obtain a firearms) away from carrying.

    • Paladin

      You’re getting an “Amen” from the choir over here. I know it’s not PC to say so, but on the average, women aren’t as fast or as strong as men. For a woman to defend herself from a male attacker, she needs to be more vicious or better armed. Get training, get training, get training, and get training.

    Clearly Progressives would rather see women using kitchen utensils than firearms for self defense. Just ask the women in India how well that is working for them.

    Why do gun grabbers want to create more victims of rape and murder by disarming the law abiding? Don’t they know the criminals won’t be disarmed; or, is it that they just don’t care?

    What is wrong with people who don’t want women to defend themselves? Makes you wonder why, especially men, don’t want women armed. The way most liberals carry on about women having guns would make you think that they want something to happen to them. I have run into so many hateful liberals that want conservative women to be raped and murdered just because they don’t agree with them that it is sicking.

    “Check under your skirt” Damn, man I bet you say that to all the ladies who offer your advice before you tell them to shut their mouth because a man is thinking. That is an amazing statement. That’s not the phony sexism that college professors crusade against, That’s real misogyny. “Check under your skirt. Now shut up, and get back to watching our kid while I go back to my GIrls marathon.” “Gutless losers.” Rapists call women with that attitude an easy lay. Amazing that these prog dudes are so cavalier with women’s physical and mental health. NOt surprising so many women come over to our side as they get older, as they just realize just how prog values demean, and straight up imperil, women. We should be spreading thse tweets on every college campus in the country. Let these silly little girls who voted for Obama see just what they’ve won.

    The part that pisses me off about this whole debate is that NO ONE is telling the anti gun crowd they HAVE to carry a gun. We just think everyone (that doesn’t have a criminal background or is insane) should be able to choose how best to protect themselves. Why is that so difficult for them to understand?

    • $8245944

      They understand perfectly. They don’t care about people, they just want power and control.

        It is so sad that the media has helped the Regressives convince people that they care about them when it really isn’t true.

    While the kidnapping, rape and multiple sales of my body happened when I was 12 years old (1971) being armed since leaving the foster care system has indeed helped save what sanity I have left. I had some Ass ask if I sucked on my gun at night, that is was an “expensive pacifier”. I told him I realize my shortcomings, and being armed AIN’T one of ’em. NEVER AGAIN.

  • $23629333

    Here’s another idea. When someone has a history of sexual assault – i.e. has sexually assaulted a number of different females on different occasions – he should be “removed.” Anyone who is familiar with this area of criminality will tell you that a small percentage of males are responsible for a (very) large percentage of the serious sexual assaults – particularly sexual assaults of strangers. These are the guys who break into homes and/or follow and attack women on public transit. These guys have no place in civilized society.
