Holy Mackerel!

Women with guns

I have trained 7,000 women between the ages of 11 and 80 to shoot guns. Many of them were like me: scared or opposed to guns Ė and not wanting to deal with the idea of using one. But they had a wake-up call that made them persist.

Mine was a 2 a.m. phone call when I learned a close friend had been raped in her own home. I decided this would not happen to me. So I made an appointment at a gun range and then canceled because of fear. But I rescheduled it and learned the basics.

...

Knowing how to defend yourself gives you the grounding for basic survival any place in the world. Women on our frontier accepted that the world was a dangerous place and many knew how to use firearms to defend their families. But today we allow women to become victimized because as a society we are squeamish to acknowledge the dark underbelly of our culture. One in six women is raped, a crime that also sometimes ends in murder. Rapists are rarely caught and, when they are, itís after an average of 15 crimes.

...

Today, it is legal in 40 states to carry a concealed weapon. Thatís just one option in an arsenal of self-protection for women but sometimes itís the best one. Some day I hope that while women can think the best of the world, they will be prepared for the worst. Victimization isnít a prerequisite to discovering ways to achieve your own personal power.


Guns are becoming "re-normalized" in our society.

Wasn't Quigley pro-gun way earlier than it was cool to be? Once Helmke and Leftwich turn their backs on the International Criminals Union and become full blown victim ARMAMENT proponents... we have won.

Have them successfully sued and/or prosecuted as accomplices to thousands of rapes, murders, and assaults of those living under disarmament policies they helped create and uphold. Allowing them to simply skate on that is an intolerable injustice. Between them in their combined careers they've probably hurt as many people as Saddam Hussein.

Cherry on top. "Oops, sorry, your penance is not enough and can never be enough for the treason and lesser crimes you've committed... welcome to Death Row - Leavenworth."

marginalizing Helmke to the point that he looks like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahmoud_Ahmadinejad) should be good enough, but probably not.
