  •  I find this whole line of argument absurd (9+ / 0-)

    mainly because a gun is more likely to be used by a man against a woman in a Domestic Violence situation than vice versa.

    These people are trying to make gun rights a feminist position because of their own (white male-centered) fetish for gun-toting women, but in real life gun control is a feminist issue, because in real life guns are used to kill women by men who want to hurt them. That's why men (or anyone) who have restraining orders against them for stalking or threatening shouldn't be able to have or legally buy guns.

    •  Actually, the market for men is saturated (5+ / 0-)

      That's why they are trying to sell to women now.

      They have pretty much sold to every guy that is interested.
