Leftists and stupidity go together like a potted plant and Harvey Weinstein with his pants down. But I don’t have to tell you that. Social justice warriors themselves do it every time they open their mouths or touch a keyboard. Case in point, the looniest lady in the Lone Star State, Wendy Davis.
While gun safety may not seem like a feminist issue at first blush, it doesn’t take too much digging to see that women are uniquely vulnerable to and disproportionately the victims of gun violence. As former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords (herself a survivor of gun violence) has eloquently said: “Dangerous people with guns are a threat to women. Criminals with guns. Abusers with guns. Stalkers with guns. That makes gun violence a women’s issue. For mothers, for families, for me and you.”
Americans know this. That’s why the majority of Americans support common-sense gun safety measures like universal background checks and a ban on rapid-fire assault weapons. But how will we ever manage to adopt those policy reforms with all those NRA shills in office?
Um, if women are in such danger, isn’t that all the more reason for them to have guns?
Guns are the ultimate equalizer in a crisis situation. Give an 80-pound vegan lass a .357? She goes from rape fodder to a force to be reckoned with in an instant.
Wendy the Wench is making blanket statements, as if women are a monolith. Not true at all. I’m sure a dame confronted with multiple home intruders in the middle of the night would prefer a Smith & Wesson in her hands over a copy of The Feminine Mystique.
Wendy Davis knows gun-grabbing is about as unpopular as Kevin Spacey at a Chuck E. Cheese. Which is why she’s trying to make gun control intersect with feminism, in the hopes of winning a few ladies over.
That, or maybe she just has her pu**y hat on too tight.
