Rosie is at it again
From Rosie's blog
I put a lengthy reply on my blog
the family tragedy of jennifer hudson
no words will do
a grief 2 hard 2 comprehend
Guns and domestic violence are a lethal combination - injuring and killing women every day in the
United States. A gun is the weapon most commonly used in domestic homicides. In fact, more than three times as many women are murdered by guns used by their husbands or intimate acquaintances than are killed by strangers’ guns, knives or other weapons combined.i Contrary to many public perceptions, many women who are murdered are killed not by strangers
but by men they know.
• Nearly one-third of all women murdered in the United States in recent years were murdered by
a current or former intimate partner. In 2000, 1,247 women, more than three a day, were killed
by their intimate partners.
• Of females killed with a firearm, almost two-thirds of were killed by their intimate partners.
• Access to firearms increases the risk of intimate partner homicide more than five times more
than in instances where there are no weapons, according to a recent study. In addition, abusers
who possess guns tend to inflict the most severe abuse on their partners.
• In 2002, 54 percent of female homicide victims were shot and killed with a gun.

They cause more women to be killed than guns.

Gee, maybe more women should be armed.
After all, you can't beat a woman who shoots.

That there is good "common sense" ,if we banned relationships then there would be less domestic violence

I am all for it, ban relationships.
But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself...

I wish Rosie's "intimate partner" has a gun.

Rosie has always been against guns, except those carried by her body guards. Good shot Rick.
Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

Rosie has an intimate partner? Now there's a visual that will be hard to erase.....How does the song go? "Roll her in flour and..."

I'd argue with her lame attempt at making valid points but it's kinda like teaching a pig to sing. Pretty much a waste of my time and it annoy's the pig!
