“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 the rationale Gabby Giffords offers up in a cnn.com piece intended to press Congress to enact more restrictions on gun ownership to make it even illegal-er to stalk, harass or murder women. This in advance of today’s scheduled Senate
dog and pony show hearing on protecting women from gun violence. Obviously, current laws on the books proscribing the shooting and killing of females aren’t enough for the former Congresswoman. It’s a shame that . . .
Ms. Giffords was too busy writing to have seen Everytown for Gun Safety’s video advocating that women defend themselves by purchasing and learning to use a firearm. If she had, she could have saved all the time and effort that went into producing that article.
