Bloomberg Make The Argument For Us

Here's my comment for my Senators and Representatives:

After watching Micheal Bloomberg's domestic violence video, I felt moved to write you. I want you all to know that I support legislation to make it easier for women to defend themselves. One of the things that the 2nd Amendment is designed to do is allow all those who can't depend on strength to still effectively defend themselves.

I call on you to provide support and training for new gun owners. I would also ask that you remove any roadblocks that make it more difficult for a woman to arm herself. Make those changes immediately effective so that a woman who has to get a restraining order can get a firearm with no waiting period. Ensure that a woman genuinely defending herself cannot be charged with a gun crime, even if she has broken some law about possession in her state or town.

Help make sure the violence depicted in this video never happens to another woman.

You're not the only one with that response. Yesterday morning on The View they reviewed that video and three of the four panelists (Sherri Shepherd, Juliet Huddy, and Jenny McCarthy) spoke out in favor of a woman's right to have a gun to defend herself and her children. The one dissenter (Lara Spencer) was concerned about having a gun in the house with children. Shepherd explained how to do it: "Locked up, go to the gun range, know how to use it."

In soccer parlance, I believe this is called "scoring an own goal."

If you want to know the bitter truth about domestic violence and spousal abuse, a cop summed it up best:

"Spousal abuse, 9 times out of 10, is about two idiots fighting, and the weaker idiot losing.

I used to help with volunteer work at a battered womens shelter (shovelling side walks, picking up donations, etc) - and I know this: most of those women deserved exactly what they got. Problem is their husbands weren't much better.
