Lady smarts: IWF’s Gayle Trotter at Senate hearing: Guns are the ‘great equalizer,’ ‘make women safer’

Attorney Gayle Trotter of the Independent Women’s Forum headed to Capitol Hill this morning to hitch up her skirt and fight like a girl for women’s right to defend themselves and their families. Speaking at the senate’s gun-grabbing hearing, Trotter explained that “guns make women safer” and “are the great equalizer during a violent confrontation.”

Bonus: Trotter sent progressives into a pearl-clutching tizzy.

Here’s a taste of her testimony:

The previous tweet Pavlich mentioned:

Uh oh. Not a pesky fact!

But women shouldn’t be seen or heard unless they’re embracing victimhood and griping about lady parts woes. MSNBC made sure of that:

HuffPo’s Sam Stein and Media Matters tool Oliver Willis seethed with derision and contempt for Trotter’s views.

More media whining:

The gun-grabbing audience also scoffed at Trotter. If her testimony was in favor of gun control, the media would report this as “heckling.”

But instead, Emily Miller’s response will be portrayed as heartless, despicable heckling of kind and loving souls exercising their First Amendment rights:

No pro-gun testimony is complete without a little Twitter heckling from the vagina gallery:

Let’s let non-Julia Katie Pavlich have the last word on that:

And once again, the War on Women is coming from the Left.

    Does anyone have video of her testifying, including her getting laughed at?

    They really do want us to be subservient to the government.

      $20 says it was selectively edited out of almost every MSM recording, or they simply turned off the cameras (and the mics) when she spoke.

    Silly Gayle; don’t you know that if you just allow yourself to be raped and murdered and do nothing to protect your family, you will have taken the Moral High Ground? Isn’t that so much better than using an icky gun that a man could just take away from you?

    “The Lord made men.but Sam Colt made them equal.”

    Oh, BTW. Isn’t it the Democrats and liberals who have professed for decades, that when a woman is faced with rape. “She should lie back and enjoy it.”???

    Just sayin’.

    • NRPax

      They need everyone helpless so utopia can be ushered in.

    • Sons Thunder

      I believe you are thinking of Clayton Williams, the McCain fundraiser who joked that rape is like bad weather in that you might as lie back and enjoy it.

      • Jack Deth

        No. That’s not it.

        Heard the line parroted throughout the 1960s and 70s by just about every liberal talking head at the time on the big three. While other liberal pundits nodded in agreement.

    While stationed at Ft. Hood, I was away at a gunnery exercise. A man came knocking at my door of which my wife answered. My wife later told me the man seemed “jumpy and anxious” and was constantly trying to peek behind her into the house as he asked questions about whether or not she wanted someone to mow the lawn, or wash the car, or clean the windows. She reiterated she did not but he aggressively persisted and grew more anxious. After repeatedly telling him no, she let the barrel and flash suppressor of my “modern sporting rifle” peak out from behind the door, which upon seeing the man said “never mind, I’ll go elsewhere.”

      You are to be commended for ensuring that the Missus is prepared to dispatch miscreants.

    It is good to hear woman speaking out against these fascist.

  • ceemack

    “U do realize @codepink that u don’t represent all women w/ your vagina costumes right?”

    Um, no, they don’t. The members of Code Pink are not the least bit afflicted with self-awareness.

  • TugboatPhil

    This t-shirt accurately says what those Regressive women in the room meant.

  • Lord Foggybottom

    Liberals claim they love science and math, right? Try these equations on for size…

    Woman + gun ≠ rape ≠ abortion = liberalism fail.
    Woman – gun = rape = abortion = liberalism win.

    I respect math and women, therefore the girls in my life pack heat.

    • Silenttype78

      Well… no… they don’t actually love math and science they just love to funnel federal dollars through anything labeled “education”,or “for the children” to their minions.

      Lib-progs hate math the most….its fact based,and can’t be manipulated by “feeeeeeelings”.

  • Silenttype78

    “Criminals shouldn’t be afraid to rape women,beat old ladies,car jack soccer moms,or break into houses occupied by women.”

    I just realized that those code pink costumes are actually exactly what I saw every time I saw a lib-prog male….

  • ssenecal5000

    STOP all RAPES! ARM every WOMAN!

  • ssenecal5000

    A headline you don’t ever see
    “Heavily armed woman brutally raped in her Home”

  • R.C.

    Why cant women just use the weapons the Egyptian rebels are using ? /

  • Randy C. Lindsey

    Code Pink are commie idiots. In the middle of this country there are millions of women who are quite capable of defending themselves with firearms.

    • Charles Harding

      I wonder if there is some way we could persuade the code pinkies to go talk to the women gun owners in the midwest about their attachment to their guns? And wear their stupid costumes – would make it easy to spot from a distance, if you know what I mean B-)

  • BeeKaaay

    Leftwingwackos are pro-rapist. First, they make sure the women are unarmed so rapists have it easier. Then they say “go and have an abortion” to get rid of the evidence of the crime.

    Utterly bloodthirsty.

  • Frank Smiles

    Found a really nice accessory for the gun my wife has for home defense. Smith and Wesson makes a grip replacement with a laser installed. So her aim will be true.

  • Frank Smiles

    Good #guncontrol is a laser mounted in the grip so that the intruder/ attacker knows exactly where you will hit him if he decides to continue his present course.
