It's a woman's rights issue.

It's not just a mass shooting issue, a gun control issue or a gun rights issue, it's also a woman's rights issue.

60% if mass shooters have a history of domestic abuse.

About 5 million women are victims of domestic abuse every year.

A woman is 500% more likely to die if an abuser has access to a gun.

On average 57 women die each month by a gun in a domestic partner's hands.

Not all states report domestic violence convictions to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

Guns make EVERYTHING better! Shall we discuss road rage next?

2. It's led to the systemic oppression of minorities...

 

And is s tool of terror used against women.

Truly a nightmare and there is no such thing as a good gun owner.

3. All True, Sir

Most men who prize fire-arms aren't fit to be allowed access to anything more lethal than a popsicle stick.

5. "Shall we discuss road rage next?" the first thing that popped into my head was the

6 year old kid murdered in a road rage incident.. Lady flipped off a guy, he shoots at her and kills her kid...... insanity...... just plain insanity..

6. Exactly. What would men do if they were the ones being hunted and killed by women

on a daily basis?
