guns are bad news for women, the cartoon

I swear, people, you are just impossible to reach… I have shown the "extremist" behavior that can result from women taking responsibility for their security, I have brought your attention to the fabrications employed by those looking to arm women, I have documented made-up women who were supposedly enjoying firearms, I have even illustrated the dangers of recreational firearm use, and yet you still will not listen […]

but… guns are bad news for women!

Apparently I need to start using bold font or all uppercase or something, because it is becoming increasingly clear that you all just are not getting the message: guns are "bad news" for women, period, end of story, no debate. So with that obvious fact again expressed (I mean, really, how many times am I going to have to say it before y’all start listening?), I wish you folks would stop […]

guns are ‘bad news’ for cleavage

ZOMG! Anti-rights cultists like Michael Bonomo are right – guns really are "bad news" for women:

If you are thinking that looks an awful lot like an imprint of .45 ACP there on some rather tender skin, you would be correct.

You see, I was dressed a bit…um…inappropriately for my first outing with the schpiffy (yep, made that word up, just now) new pistol. You know, […]

soapy self-defense

A lot of bytes have been sacrificed in the unending debates and conversations we pro-rights activists have about the efficacy of various calibers in self-defense situations, but it is a rare opportunity indeed to come up with some actual, hard data concerning how a small piece of lead traveling at high velocities will affect the human body. One such opportunity presented itself in Gwinnett, Georgia this very week:

Gwinnett police Cpl. Edwin […]

quote of the day – breda

I like to ramble on about how open carry is not such a big deal to most people, and how it is becoming surprisingly mundane for such an out-of-the-ordinary activity, but, as is often the case, other folks do a much better job illustrating the point than I manage to:

Special thanks to NancyR for loaning me her Sweet Daughter for an afternoon during the 2011 NRA Annual […]

how not to be a victim

We spend a lot of time talking about firearms and self-defense and rights and tactics and considerations and legalities and all the rest of that good nonsense on a regular basis here at "walls of the city", but the simple truth of the matter is that the most valuable, most important, and most capable tool for ensuring your own safety and that of your family resides behind your two eyes. You could be naked and […]

the mother of all ass-handings

Really, just go read the whole thing – any attempt I make to pull quotes or comments out of it will merely diminish its awesomeness, and no one would want that.

the same old rabbit-hole

If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand timesguns are "bad news" for women forever and always! Unfortunately, it would appear as though some of my fellow pro-rights advocates, industry compatriots, and media writers simply cannot get this simple fact through their thick skulls, and instead fabricate all kinds of […]

really, people, how could you?

Look, folks, I am not sure how many times I have to say this, but it is an incontrovertible FACT that guns are “bad news” for women. Period. Full stop. End of story. No debate permitted.

And due to the unquestionable nature of that simple and obvious truth, I really, really wish you people […]

the declining value of myths

A lot of anti-rights cultists seem to extract no end of entertainment blathering on about the myth of how “guns are ‘bad news’ for women“, complete with proffering a seemingly endless stream of anecdotes and news stories to support their narrow-minded bigotry.

Of course, using the media as their sole source of information was only the first of their mistakes, but perhaps one of the most egregious errors committed […]

for the ladies

If you happen to live here in Eastern Tennessee, are female, and want to procure your Handgun Carry Permit, the Bass Pro Shop near Sevierville is offering basically-free* classes that will satisfy the state requirement for your application; however, move quickly – two of the four classes are already booked up! The only things you absolutely have to bring to the class/range are yourself, a pen, and a pad of paper – you […]

guns continue to be “bad news” for women

Remember, everyone, guns are “bad news” for women… except when the woman in question thoroughly enjoys time at the range with her daughter, and even collects the leftover targets to post on the fridge.

Bah, but she is old. What does she know? It is the next generation we should be focusing on, so remember, boys and girls, guns are “bad news” for women… except when they start […]

breaking out the small, pink guns

Remember, boys and girls, guns are bad news for women… unless, of course, you are a five-year-old who just got her first .22. Just look at the smile on that kid’s face – it is going to require a jackhammer and blowtorch to remove! But wait… it gets better – something tells me that if we could harness the energy of a five-year-old jumping around after perforating her target, […]

winning through the generations

Remember, boys and girls, guns are ‘bad news’ for women, especially when the gun in question is an M1 Carbine and the woman is a ten-year-old girl having the time of her life.

No matter how cute, empowering, safe, and educational it may have been, anti-rights nuts across the country incessantly strive to keep incidents like this from ever occurring… to what end? Why would they deny this girl a […]

it needs to be spread

I cannot, and should not, add anything to this:

Gun control laws are absolutely a feminist issue, but for the exact opposite reason simpering cowards like the author above believe. Gun control laws do absolutely nothing but make the most effective means of self defense difficult or impossible to utilize by innocent people. They do not nor have they ever made any reduction in criminal use of firearms, or any other crime. Just look […]

guns are ‘bad news’ for women… or not

Remember, ladies and gentlepeople – despite all outward appearances, guns are ‘bad news’ for women in all cases and situations.

In light of this all-too-obvious ‘fact’, anti-rights nuts should be crawling out of the woodwork to decry this incident as an unnecessary loss of life:

A South Bend woman fatally shot her ex-boyfriend after he broke into her home and attacked her Saturday, […]

empowerment is never ‘bad news’

We have examined the fallacious blanket-statement that “guns are ‘bad news’ for women” a few times before at this weblog, but it never hurts to pound a few more nails into any argument’s coffin, just to be sure (remember Rule #2). In this particular case, though, the only “bad news” resulting from this firearm being in the hands of this woman is that her competitors are about […]

reality trumps bigotry

Remember, guns are “bad news” for women, and I am quite certain this female would be more than willing to throw her support entirely behind our ex-resident anti-rights nut, MikeB302000:

A woman fatally shot her ex-husband after the man stabbed her several times at a Montrose [Texas] apartment complex Sunday.


The name of the 32-year-old man, who died at the scene, has not been released.

His ex-wife, […]

beats the hell out of me

One of the favorite “arguments” of self-proclaimed anti-rights nut MikeB302000 is that “guns are bad news for women”. This statement is treated, by him, as a universal fact, applicable in all cases, and in all circumstances, despite copious quantities of evidence to the contrary (not the least of which being the somewhat numerous female gun bloggers in […]
