The following are more samples of armed citizens, regular people like you and me, defending themselves from criminals. Stories of women and girls who would not become victims to be used by the liberal media to boost ratings and promote the liberal anti-gun political movement. Women and girls who would not choose to disarm other women and girls to serve a self-righteous holier-than-thou egocentric purpose. Women and children that anti-gun politicians are not interested in for their anti-gun legislative vote.
If you support gun control laws, then you must admit, YOU MUST ADMIT, that you would be willing to sacrifice these women and girls to whatever fate was in store for them as disarmed citizens in exchange for your belief that guns should be banned. To not admit this makes you a hypocrite, a coward, and a self-serving narcissist. I challenge anyone to argue otherwise.

“The armed citizen also noted that she has been a gun owner for more than 30 years and that “women are better with guns.””
I had heard somewhere else that women, in general, are better ‘natural’ shots than men. That would be an interesting research topic.
I would not be surprised by that, if they were. There are inherent biological, physiological and mental differences based on the male/female biological roles that have been hard-wired into us over the past million years. The traits that are beneficial to survival are maintained as the ones that are not are rejected with each successive generation creating, for the most part, a finely tuned machine for survival and procreation. I am sure some of these beneficial traits would, by accident, be an advantage in modern times that would never have been predicted by the natural selection process of the body over thousands of generations. The extra-interesting part would be tying that advantage to the natural selection that was maintained for survival that would have nothing to do with firing a weapon.
For example I think I read somewhere that women have better sight for bright colors because, as the theory went, fruits and berries are often those colories, and with women historically being the gatherers of the hunter-gatherer equation, they developed finely tuned vision for those colors so they could spot them at a long distance more easily than men. I don’t know that this has anything to do with the topic at hand, but I am curious what natural selection process IS related to the topic.
