    Pro-gun author Paxton Quigley goes ANTI

    Do U.S. Women Need Guns? Self-Defense Expert Paxton Quigley Says Yes - The Daily Beast

    She is quick to say that she is not advocating assault weapons. Following the recent tragedy in Colorado, in which the shooter reportedly bought 6,000 rounds of ammunition on the Internet, then used weapons including a shotgun, a pistol, and a semiautomatic rifle to kill 12 people and injure dozens more, Quigley says she believes assault weapons should be banned and that ammunition should not be sold online.

    Hmmmmm....yep. If ammo and assault weapons arent sold online then criminals wont attack or rape. Just like in the 90s.

    I think she wanted some attention.

    As we all know, this murderer didn't use 6000rds nor so-called "assault" weapons, nor would purchase of ammunition at different stores have altered his ability to do what he did. It simply would have meant a few more receipts.

    Banning such things won't stop diddly.

    IMO, about the only way to keep weaponry from passing across a store's counter to a criminal is to know the person's a criminal in advance. And even then, it's hardly foolproof. Even super-duper security checks, pre-validation or registration type schemes wouldn't have caught this guy, as he wasn't a violent felon at the time of his purchases.

    About the only thing that will stop such off-the-radar people in advance of committing any crime is to do just that: to erase them from our midst in advance of being criminal. That'll go down well. About as sure a way to destroy liberty as I can think of.

    Well I have to add that I think the thread title is a little misleading. Ms. Quigley hasn't gone "anti"; she's making the same mistake that seems to be so common with a large number of firearms 'advocates'. She believes her idea of 'limits' is acceptable, because those limits don't interfere with the 'rights' that she finds important. Bill Ruger, Jim Zumbo and, most recently, Jerry Tsai have all fallen for the same dumb idea that laws will stop criminals, and all of them should have known better, given their place in the industry.

    It's a juvenile and misguided mentality, IMO, because as most 2A avocates will tell you, laws only apply to law abiding people. So when the making assault weapons illegal doesn't actually stop the criminal element, then new, even more restrictive laws, will have to be created; which will have the same effect of only punishing the folks that weren't a threat to being with.

    In her books that I've read she advocates women to have weapons at home but then becomes very hesitant that they should carry them citing concerns of training and safety. So, I'm not surprised that she comes to the wrong conclusions with so called assult weapons either.

    Btw, I do think that this position is definitely anti 2a. It is misguided but is not to be excused by people within the 2a civil rights movement. They should know better and we all have the obligation to make sure in no uncertain terms that their incorrect positions are not to be tolerated. If she can't understand that an ar15 would make a perfect home defence gun for someone other than her, she obviously doesn't understand the second amendment.

    I am completely unimpressed with this author. She is not a friend to freedom, and she should keep her foolish opinions to herself. I can't stand people who want to see things banned for no other reason than because they don't personally see the "need" for them.

    Just another author that doesnt get it. They are a dime a dozen.

    I guess shes OK with owning a Saturday Night Special for self defense, but "assault" weapons shouldnt be owned by the common folk.

    Typical.

    It’s also why, she argues, women need a handgun. “There just aren’t many good weapons to protect yourself other than a handgun. If you want to stop an attacker, you have to think about the best means of stopping an attacker.”

    This is just ignorant.

    I still can't see the difference between an "assault rifle" & a good sporting rifle. Pistol grip? bayonet lug? Able to hold hi-cap magazines? Other than the fact that most military assault rifles are selective fire, semi- to full auto, & most sporting rifles can take a hi-cap mag there isn't a lot of difference. I don't know if I'd prefer to get killed by a fully auto M-4 or a sportarized Springfield bolt action '03 with a scope or a deer hunter or Soldier. In my experience a deliberately aimed scoped rifle can be just as deadly as a spray & pray full auto assault rifle. Deadlier.

    An "assault rifle" is anything that the anti's dont like.

    I've seen the news media call a Win 30-30 an "assault rifle" because it could fire more than one shot.
