Moms Demand Action—the anti-gun astroturf group of older women run by veteran PR maven Shannon Watts—knows that they are losing the public relations war against firearms. Young urban, and female gun owners are the fastest growing demographics in the shooting sports, turning shooting into truly social events.
Aware of the fact that gun controllers are losing this younger generation before they can be conned by anti-gun hysteria, Moms Demand has attempted to slow their hemorrhaging support by telling women that if they bring guns into their homes, that they are more likely to die of domestic violence.
They assert that if you bring a gun into your home, that Evil Males™ will simply take your gun away from you, and kill you with it.
Presumably, Watts and her ilk would rather you take your beating quietly.
A woman in Henderson, Nevada, apparently wasn’t too keen on taking the “let me sit here and take my beating instead of protecting myself with a gun” advice dished out by Moms Demand. Though she lacked a firearm of her own, she did have a neighbor with one that may have saved her life when her estranged boyfriend invaded her home with ill intent.
Earlier in the night, the couple got into an argument at a party before the woman took her boyfriend home and drove to her own apartment. Police described the couple as estranged.
Fearful that he might show up at her home, she called a man who lives in her apartment complex, Paul said. Her boyfriend, 49, eventually arrived and tried to kick in the front door before climbing in through a window.
The neighbor cautioned him to stop and told him that he had a weapon, Paul said. The alleged intruder reportedly continued to advance toward them, and the armed man fired several shots, striking and killing him.
Do you have any doubts at all what the outcome would have been for this woman if she didn’t have someone with a gun nearby? Instead of being mildly traumatized, she’d likely be seriously injured or dead.
Presumably, this would fine with Shannon Watts and Moms Demand Action, just as long as there wasn’t a gun involved.
