Guns Make Women Safer

Gun rights advocates clobber gun ban proposal
By: Dave Workman

During the Senate Judiciary Committee this week, perhaps the biggest surprise came when Gayle Trotter, a senior fellow with the Independent Women's Forum, told the panel, chaired by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), that "In a violent confrontation, guns reverse the balance of power. An armed woman does not need superior strength."

She further stunned the audience by opposing a ban on semi-automatic rifles.

"Guns make women safer," she stated.

Responding to a question from Ranking Republican Sen. Charles Grassley, she
said "Young women are speaking out as to why AR-15 weapons are their weapon
of choice. The guns are accurate, they have good handling, they're light,
they are easy for women to hold, and most importantly, their appearance; an
assault weapon in the hands of a young woman defending her babies in her
home becomes a defense weapon."

It was a devastating observation from a woman that drew some giggles from
anti-gunners, but it may have struck a nerve with other people.

David Kopel, research director at the Colorado-based Independence Institute
told the panel that the semi-auto ban from 1994 through 2004 was a failure.
He referred to a Justice Department study conducted under then-Attorney
General Janet Reno that concluded the law "had done nothing."


"Law-abiding gun owners will not accept the blame for acts of violent criminals."

 - Wayne LaPierre, president NRA
