U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)-Being on leave of absence last week, I missed out on an event the gun-grabbers consider important: #WEARORANGE 2018. Even so, by culturally appropriating (which “progressives” generally condemn) the outerwear of real gun safety practitioners, it gets confusing trying to also keep up with useful idiots, the political criminals that exploit them, foreign enemies, and unarmed victims of murderous maniacs.
One outlet that didn’t miss out on an opportunity to use the Bloomberg Orange Day as an opportunity to subvert the right to keep and bear arms is, unsurprisingly, The Huffington Post, which deemed it the perfect time to post a claim of “11 Statistics That Remind Us Gun Violence Is A Women’s Issue.”
Keep in mind the truism that for “progressives,” every day is Opposite Day, and the desperation of “women’s rights advocates” to keep “the weaker sex” defenseless becomes perfectly clear.
“Women are virgins when it comes to guns,” District of Columbia Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton advocated when protesting NRA’s “Refuse to be a Victim” program. “It should stay that way.”
Besides, who needs guns when no less an authority than the Illinois State Police advised vomiting, plus women have the option of inserting a tube with razor-sharp hooks underneath their electrified underwear?
Ladies, these people really don’t want you armed. And there’s no shortage of shrill, ignorant women who agree.
Also keep in mind the “lies, damned lies and statistics” adage when looking at the HuffPo numbers. I’ve repeated their claims below, along with questions and challenges they have intentionally have not admitted, let alone addressed:
41 – The number of states that don’t require those prohibited from purchasing a firearm due to domestic violence charges to relinquish the firearms they already own.
“Charges”? Not “convictions”? So “guilty until proven innocent” and ignoring due process are considered “progressive” values?
760 – The number of people killed by firearms annually in the U.S. by intimate partners.
“By firearms”? Not “with”? How many killings were justifiable? How many were mainly attributable to poor judgment in partner selection? How many of the women engaged in criminbal activity themselves? How many killers were already “prohibited by law” from owning a gun?
80 – 80 percent of people killed by firearms annually in the U.S. by intimate partners are women.
Same questions and concerns apply, along with the reality that an enraged male generally does not need a gun to kill a weaker female.
53 – The percentage of intimate partner murders that involve a fatal gunshot.
Same questions and concerns already stated apply.
5 – Domestic violence victims are 5 times more likely to be killed if her partner owns a gun.
“Owns” or “possesses”? There’s a significant difference, you know, that ties directly in to previously stated quesitons and concerns.
16 – A woman in the U.S. is fatally shot by her current or former intimate partner every 16 hours.
