    2A - THINK PROGRESS: Female gun owners are stupid...Wow, just Wow!

    Real Title: Female gun owners are stupid
    Origional Article from Think Progress (= Think Regressivly Progressive)

    Hat Tips to The Gun Feed ( TheGunFeed.com ) and Guns Save Lives ( gunssavelives.com )

    My Comments: When the argument about how Guns Kill Children wears thin, why not start a 'War Against Women's 2A Rights' by Regressive Progressives. Wow. The Anti-2A ogers will stoop to any low to push an ignorant and without science or studied 'fact' to scare the uninformed individuals in the USA. I was waiting for someone to post this, but did not see it. Wow. This is the mantra right up there with the Former CO Senators who backed peeing on attackers to stop rape because a firearm would not be effective........... Same Ilk and non-intellectual thought process of all Regressively Progressive Drones........


    Think Progress, according the Wikipedia, “is an American political blog that ‘provide[s] a forum that advances progressive ideas and policies’. It is an outlet of the Center for American Progress.

    They aren’t big fans of self-defense or gun ownership (duh).

    Title of Think Progress Post: How Guns At Home Can Make Women Less Safe

    Some thoughts about this article:

    1. The demonization of opponents (Women gun owners) and attempt to bully them into submission (You're stupid, You're evil, you don't care about children, etc). This shouldn't surprise anyone, it's all the antis really have because manipulating emotions is the only thing they know.

    2. I know the NRA has an NRA women section and it trying to reach out to more women, but where the hell is a group of pro gun women to be activists and blunt the message of Mom Demand Servitude. Think how powerful an ad with mothers/grandmothers/sisters/daughters/aunts can be when they speak into the camera, saying I'm a mother, and I'll do anything to protect my kids, I'm a daughter, and I realize police officers can't be everywhere, so I take responsibility for my own safety, etc. Also, if Moms Demand Subjugation can waste time and printing ink harassing businesses following local laws, why can't we have pro 2a women organized to thank the same businesses for following local laws.

    3. Remember this article is not aimed at women gun owners, it's aimed at those that do not own guns, but also do not know much about guns. It's designed to feed on the uniformed.

    I guess there will always be someone who may think that .It use to make me mad.I guess as i've got older articles like that coming from some random person or persons i don't even know i don't pay it much attention.Chances are they don't matter to me anyway. No one i've been around treats me as such and those are the ones that do matter.

    there were 1,707 females murdered by males in single victim/single offender incidents n 2011
    As a male gun owner, I read that as: 1,707 violent male gun owners killed women in acts of rape, mugging, domestic violence, or other plain sick crimes. I conclude that more women need to own guns and practice using guns. Violent men are the problem, not innocent women victims.

    Progressives reached another conclusion:
    The Violence Policy Center concludes that women buying a gun for their protection particularly from abusive relationships should think twice before associating guns with safety.
    I have no idea how you reach that conclusion. Women are being killed by violent men with guns, so...don't own a gun???
    I guess I'm stupid too.

    I tend to believe this article is trying to keep more women from finding out the freedom and empowerment of owning and knowing how to use a firearm .
    Once the numbers increase "pro-gun" it will be (IMO) harder for the Anti's to gain further support.

    I hope they don't really believe this crap they spew, but maybe they do. Who really looks stupid here? I have too much life experience to fall for this manipulation, but I can see how a 20-something could be brainwashed into this believe this *$)#*. I think I'll take my daughter to the gun range and teach her how to shoot a gun...soon.

    Has anyone seen the movie "Idiocracy" lately? When it first came out I couldn't watch more than an hour of it, and now it's starting to feel like reality.

    It's the LIBTARD mindset. They FEEL they own the conversation on women's rights, (Or any group they think deserves special treatment, except Tea Party people)Take for instance Democratic Senator from Socialist Maryland Barbara Mikulski Who feels the urge to complain that Ted Cruz filibustered to basically make TEA BAGGERS happy (If you don't know what that is click link- Don't worry the video is just rated R). How ever in LIBTARD circles to refer to TEXANS that voted for TED CRUZ, in this derogatory way, she never gets questioned by the news reporters doing the interview, never gets called out for referring to Americans, in a reference to a DISGUSTING GAY SEXUAL ACT. So for LIBTARDS life goes on as usual. If i used the "ugly" words to describe the good Senator , I think i'd be banned for life from this board. I am just trying to make a point without using the vulgarity that LIBTARDS can get away with!

    Here's what I think about men who are anti 2A. They are wimps. They are men who are truly afraid of guns but in order to be able to look themselves in the mirror, they have to project their fears onto others. That's why they say people who own firearms are "stupid, crazy, ignorant, violent, etc, etc". This feeds their tender egos. Otherwise, they'd have to admit that they don't have the guts to stand up for themselves and/or protect their families if it should come to that.

    I don't pay any attention to the wimps when they write stuff trying, once again, to salvage their manhood.

    "How Guns At Home Can Make Women Less Safe"

    Translation (what the title of a general article should be: "How incompetency with gun use and handling can lead to a false sense of security for many."

    Unfortunately for the authors/editors, they took the "high" road ... as in, lobbing one high into the air aimed right at females for no good reason.

    Divide and conquer strategy, perhaps? Can't imagine why any reputable writer would craft such a thing, otherwise. And even then, I can't imagine why any reputable writer would craft such a thing.

    I don't agree with this article or their platform, but there are some real problems here.

    Women who are in (i.e. stay in) abusive relationships have issues. They may not be empowered to act, they may be protecting kids (until they are of age), they may not have their own income. The solution to this multi-facted problem is difficult to achieve. We know the only real answer is to leave that relationship (easier said than done).

    ---
    Let's change the paradigm a bit for perspective. A woman in an abusive relationship says 'I need to protect myself, I'm going to go out and buy a can of gas and a lighter'. Or 'I'm going to go out and buy a baseball bat and train on a heavy bag'. They're trying to fight violence with a higher level of violence.

    Also, a person (woman or man) who has never fought, never done a combat sport, might think they can go buy a firearm and be able to fight (and use, and deploy) their self-defense tool, just because it looks simple; "pull the trigger and it goes bang" sounds simple but it's not.

    Another question to ask is what makes a person be abusive in a relationship? Is it acting out (someone abused as a kid)? Is it a power thing? Is it an anger management issue?

    ---
    Let's turn this on its head again. Let's say we have one of the somewhat rarer cases of a man being abused by a female spouse. Is the solution for him to go out and get a firearm? It's almost laughable to think that's a good idea. Is an abused man ever going to solve anything by shooting his wife to stop her from hitting him with a frying pan? I doubt it.

    To be sure, females (and abused males, and elderly and the disabled and the young) need to have a set of tools that allows them to level the playing field, to allow them to get back their feeling of personal power, to allow them to go out alone and not be afraid (even if it's a bit of an illusion). As a society we're better off when people, women, are empowered.

    There's one case where I think it might be a good idea for a female to get a firearm and that in the case of a stalker, when she is living alone (with or without children). We know the cops can't save her. But the question is, can this person actually shoot her stalker? And having done so can a female with children shoot her stalker and not end up in prison, her children abandoned? If I were in that situation, as sure as I am with my firearm and fighting skills, I wonder it that might make me hesitate in some circumstances. I do know I'd feel 'safer' at home with some kind of weapon I can use skillfully.

    But just because it's complicated, we have no right as a society to make a woman feel that she's stupid for trying her best to find a way to defend herself. Nobody else is going to do it for her.
