Default women noticed: Bloomberg Ad Inadvertently Portrays Limits of Gun Control Agenda

'Much like Bloomberg’s botched launch into “grassroots” organizing, the ad’s debut has once again shown the ex-mayor’s paid activists being outmaneuvered by grassroots gun rights supporters. Within hours of the video’s release, bloggers were extolling the pro-gun message of Everytown’s new effort. Others have edited the video to show what might have happened had the mother been armed (efforts that Bloomberg’s lawyers scrambled to censor). Journalist Katie Pavlich’s commentary on the ad was followed by a different commercial, which now has over two million online views, that demonstrates a far more favorable outcome to a home invasion in which the female resident was armed.

Lest anyone think this interpretation of the Everytown ad is confined to the pro-gun community, the sentiment has been shared by a diverse audience. Following a viewing of the ad on ABC’s The View, a show aimed squarely at a modern female demographic, host Sherri Shepherd told the story of time she was fearful of a break-in and suggested that women use firearms to defend themselves and their children. Following Shepherd’s comments, guest Juliet Huddy and host Jenny McCarthy shared experiences where they felt threatened and wished they had been armed.

The attitudes these women on The View expressed towards firearms are emblematic of broader trends in gun ownership. Media outlets are replete with stories of more women purchasing firearms, learning to shoot, and acquiring Right-to-Carry permits. In February 2013, the New York Times ran an article titled, “Rising Voice of Gun Ownership is Female.” The item cited a National Shooting Sports Foundation survey that found, “73 percent of gun dealers said the number of female customers had gone up in 2011, as had a majority of retailers surveyed in the two previous years.” Further, NSSF’s report “First Time Gun Buyers” concluded that, “women are motivated to purchase their first firearm predominately for personal defense.” '

I saw the ad before knowing what it was for and thought it was for guns/self-defense! Thanks Bloomberg!

I was surprised to learn that Sherri and Jenny had handguns/shotguns in their homes to protect their kids.

Hurrah for The View! And last week's cover of Rolling Stone Magazine featured country star Miranda Lambert, at her home in Oklahoma.

One of the activities Miranda described was renting a party bus and taking the nine employees of her shop, all women, to Dallas, for shopping and to take their CCW classes. Miranda carries a S&W Ladysmith .38.

Finally, an idea whose time has come. When the media start playing up women's shooting and women getting CCW's, to protect themselves, we have ourselves a movement. Women have to be able to protect themselves without waiting for some guy to come along and do it for them, and they're finally figuring that out.

Now, if we could just get a spot on Oprah, to support gun training, safety and carry for women, that would be the icing on the cake. I'm so grateful to the View for their support.

He's an idiot & his ad backfired on him. I've heard from numerous people who saw it that if they didn't own a gun, they would hurry out & buy several, which I think was the opposite of what he wants, right???
