As the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex makes sure to remind us at every opportunity, women are more endangered by having a gun in the home than they are protected by them. Oh, and any chick dizzy enough to consider carrying a firearm will only have it taken away and used against her. So don’t even bother.
Leave aside for a moment how insultingly patronizing and sexist those messages are. Instead, watch this video and show it to the next hoplophobe who parrots that rote, anti-gun catechism at you.
The attack happened in a Milwaukee restaurant when a “customer” walked back into the kitchen and cold-cocked the cook. That’s when the waitress behind her drew a pistol as he approached her, too.
“It is sickening to see this unsuspecting worker assaulted so brutally by this individual,” Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan said.
The woman who was hit had a concussion but is back at the work.
Another worker, who pulled out a gun and pointed it at the man to get him away from the victim, has quit.
“I thank God that the one waitress had a concealed carry and pulled out her gun. I shudder to think what might have happened had she not been able to do that. What this guy would’ve done,” Donovan said.
Police know who the man is but are still looking for him.
Yes, it is sickening. But it’s also another example of a successful defensive gun use, one that didn’t require firing a shot. It happens literally hundreds of thousands of times a year in the United States, a fact that President Obama’s National Research Council confirmed.
There’s simply no denying that a firearm is frequently the best, most effective tool a woman can use to even the odds against a bigger, stronger, faster, more aggressive attacker. Just as it did in that Milwaukee restaurant.
Does that matter one whit to Gabby Giffords, Shannon Watts, Joan Peterson, Lucia McBath, Kamala Harris or Carolyn Maloney? Of course not. They’d prefer to see women disarmed, defenseless and vulnerable to thugs like the guy in the video above. Better to have them injured or dead than able to demonstrate that guns can and really do save lives. Now that’s sickening.
