Via Snowflakes in Hell we get this story full of hypocrisy…
The International Action Network on Small Arms is promoting International Women’s Day of Peace by promoting the disarming of everybody. Snowflakes in Hell has a great comparison between the likely hood of a unarmed woman being assaulted and an armed women. Personally if I were wanting to cause ill will to anybody, including women, I’d certainly want them unarmed.
This kind of hypocrisy is the Achilles’ heel of the anti-gun movement. They want all the good people disarmed so they push for stronger gun legislation. But by definition a criminal breaks the law and if they are planning on harming another person they aren’t going to avoid breaking any other law to accomplish their goal. The only true form of defense is what you as a person are willing to do.
