Quote of the Day: Not Counterintuitive At All Edition by Dan Zimmerman | Jun 06, 2012 | 11 comments facebook twitter linkedin email “Gun ownership goes up, crime goes down…that’s how it works.” – Emily Miller [h/t Ryan King] comments bontai Joe says: June 6, 2012 at 10:42 Yep, it is as simple as that in most places. Reply Mark says: June 6, 2012 at 10:52 Women are the typical victims of violent crime. Women should be armed and TRAINED to be responsible, accurate shooters who continue to practice. They should also read the book “Cornered Cat”, preferably before they decide on a particular firearm. Reply Chris Dumm says: June 6, 2012 at 11:43 h/t to former MTV talking head Kennedy! I hadn’t paid any attention to her since her MTV days, and I’d assumed she was a rabid anti-gunner who could not have an open mind about this issue. Boy was I was wrong! Seeing her interest in this very non-MTV topic (and her sarcasm at ‘totally effective’ gun control laws) reminds me how foolish it is to prejudge. Reply Ralph says: June 6, 2012 at 12:06 We already knew that we adored Emily. Now we know that we adore Kennedy, too. Especially when she’s wearing those nerdy glasses while packing heat. Reply Jeff says: June 6, 2012 at 19:53 Love Emily’s persistence in getting her gun. She should come out to Clark Bros. to experience an outdoor range. Reply Sanchanim says: June 6, 2012 at 21:15 Ok wait and she works for the Washington Post???? We need more woman like her and Kennedy to promote not being a victim anymore! I haven’t read Emily’s articles but I will see if I can find them. It sounds like she basically spells out how much of a pain in the ass it is to do something legal. Reply CarlosT says: June 6, 2012 at 21:44 Nope, Washington Times. Reply Sanchanim says: June 6, 2012 at 21:54 Edit Washington times, now it makes sense. Also following the horrible story on the soldier who had his house ransacked by SWAT and such as well. Reply John Fritz says: June 6, 2012 at 21:33 Huge respect for Ms. Miller. She was hanging out briefly on the SIGforum which was nice. it was while she was deciding which model SIG to purchase. Kennedy has her moments. I don”t know though, never would have thought of her as a firearms advocate. Hopefully she’s being sincere. Reply eric says: June 7, 2012 at 00:18 She’s been a contributor for Reason TV http://reason.com/ for a while which focuses on libertarian ideals. She’s been a consistent advocate individual freedom. As far as I can tell…her views in the vid are legit. Reply BeninMA says: June 7, 2012 at 02:34 Kennedy has been conservative since her MTV days.
