Posted on 06/16/2014 6:53:01 AM PDT by rktman
Levels of gun violence remain unacceptably high in this country, and judging from the daily toll of gun murders to the extraordinary acts of mass violence such as the one that occurred in Isla Vista just days ago, women are too often the targets of gun violence. Every day, five women are murdered with guns in the United States, a large percentage of whom are killed by their intimate partners.

If this is true, why are we allowing so many illegal alien "children" into the U.S. to "escape the gun violence" in Central America? Duh? Why are they coming here? Are they stupid or what?
So shooting men is ok?
By taking guns away from their hookups.
Yup. I’m pretty sure if I lived in the paradise known as mexico I’d sure want to avoid coming to this hell hole. Er.....maybe that’s not right. More research needed. I’m thinkin’ Jan Brewer needs to bus these trespassers to dc and drop them. DC does stand for detention center doesn’t it?
“Every day 5 women are murdered with guns in the United States”.
I see no mention of the thousands that are murdered in the womb every day. I guess they don’t count.
Teach a woman to shoot - Today.
Empowering women to fight back is a hell of a lot more effective.
Men SHOULD attend, and offer to train/teach any woman who shows up. Right outside the conference, set up a booth, hand out flyers, offer free shooting and safety lessons.
The NRA and other organizations should be all over these kind of events.
“a large percentage”
Meaning? 10%? 25%? 50%?
Oh, let me guess... even one percent is too many to allow me to continue owning a gun, right?
The Dems are back to the divide and conquer strategy. I bet there are far more men who die from “gun violence” (since a lot more men are gang bangers). The truth is that from a potential victim standpoint, guns are more important to women as a tool for self-defense than to men as women are on average physically weaker and slower (running) than men, and are therefore more likely to be victims of just about all criminal activities. As such guns are the great equalizer for their self-defense, and these A-holes want to take that away from them so they would go back to being helpless. They make me puke.
Apparently it is "intimate" partners who are dangerous.
More gun laws?
If laws worked the US President wouldn’t be a dope smoking, cocaine sniffing illegal alien.
By far, the *very best* way of “Protecting Women from Gun Violence”, is to give them guns!
And that is real feminism.
This should be thrown in the face of the gun controllers. That by their wanting to disarm women, they are calling women inferior to men. Barefoot and pregnant and in the kitchen baking pies for the men. Too weak to open a door, or to pull out their own chair to sit down to dinner.
Timid and frightened of wildflowers, because they are wild. Who faint at the sound of a bad word. Who need men to protect them, because they cannot protect themselves, and are frightened of mice and loud noises.
If you respect women, you know they are capable of defending themselves when they are armed. A woman with a gun can protect herself from a muscular psychopath bent on rape and murder. No help needed at all, except to police up the criminal’s body.
And as is usual with the left, it remains unsaid that most of the guns involved were illegal in the first place, and the vast majority of the vics (and the perps) were black. Something like 3/4 (maybe more) of all gun violence disappears if you don’t count black-perp violence.
How many of these "intimate partners" are thug felons?
You would lower the death rate by convincing women to not live with thugs. But it would be hard because thugs are so much more "exciting" and "sexy" than marrying a WalMart manager.
To liberals, they don’t. They can be replaced with illegal aliens who have on allegiance to the US.
“Every day, five women are murdered with guns in the United States, a large percentage of whom are killed by their intimate partners.”
Thank goodness there were no guns present in my household!!!

Let's see the numbers!
Here are the numbers for 2011, 1613 female murder victims of firearms.
These crosstabs are very useful. You can sort the data by year, age, sex, race, state, number of victims and offenders, type of weapon used.
A). The implicational LIE that there are virtually no laws on the books on guns.
B). Lying by statistics to score whatever political points they can to Forward their gun grabbing agenda.
The Loose Laws Lie has been repeatedly used to attack our Commonsense Civil Rights by the following method:
Step one: Repeatedly scream that gun violence is casued by the easy access to guns.
Step two: Get whatever laws they can on the books in response to the latest incident - and then say its a good First Step.
Go back to step one, rinse lather repeat
Back up the process with Lies based on statistics..
