As prnewswire.com reports, “Scott Bach is Executive Director of the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs and New Jersey’s only sitting NRA board member. He was scheduled to address the Morris County Republican Women’s Club at its annual spring brunch on April 8 at the Spring Brook Country Club in Morristown, New Jersey, which has hosted the club’s event for over 10 years.”
Bach was set to give the assembled crowd his views on personal defense and the right to keep and bear arms next month. But . . .
After a handful of gun-ban proponents tried to shut down Bach’s appearance by complaining to the country club, the club buckled and abruptly cancelled the event with less than two weeks’ notice, telling the women’s group president, Angelique Scholl, in a two-minute conversation that “it wasn’t good for the community.”
Hold on a minute . . .
“Anti-gun zealots always say they want to have a ‘conversation’ about firearms, but what they really mean is they want to have a monologue,” said Bach. “Free speech is only tolerated if you agree with them. Otherwise, they try to censor you.”
Huh. That’s exactly what we were about to say. Bach went on . . .
“I carry a compelling message about personal protection, women’s empowerment, and freedom that is more relevant now than ever and needs to be heard by everyone,”
Ah. There’s the problem. Left-leaning anti-gun groups are made up largely of women. Women who will loudly and proudly profess their strength, independence, tolerance and broadmindedness at the drop of a pussy hat.
Yet somehow they can’t abide a group of women with different world views hearing a message of personal defense, empowerment and freedom from someone who — EEEEK! — likes to shoot guns!
What are they so afraid of? Why can’t they handle the truth?
