Dramatic Video Shows LAPD SWAT Officer Shot During Standoff 11 COMMENTS Yep, it is as simple as that in most places. Reply 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 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 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 Love Emily’s persistence in getting her gun. She should come out to Clark Bros. to experience an outdoor range. Reply 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 Nope, Washington Times. Reply 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 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 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 Kennedy has been conservative since her MTV days. Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
