'Here’s the answer — don’t give men guns'
Article here. Excerpt:
'When we look at the acts of almost unspeakable gun violence making news and breaking hearts, it doesn’t take Rachel Maddow or Wayne LaPierre to target the fact that men are responsible. We don’t need to hit the archives for historical documentation. What we need to do is this: We need to stop selling guns to men.
Women will be able to buy and own guns but not be permitted to share them with our male counterparts.
Why? Because it’s clear that men don’t know how to handle weapons. Remember, even Dick Cheney shot his lawyer — by mistake. His wife, Lynne Cheney, might have killed a lot of artists’ hopes as head of the National Endowment for the Arts, but she never shot any real artists. Not that I know of.
Many gun-rights advocates cite a line attributed to George Washington — “They should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them” — which would fit right in with the idea that women, in most danger of abuse, should be the ones in line for guns and ammo; next are kids, since child abuse is also widespread. Obviously the elderly and physically disabled should all be armed, and — to be fair — so should those in iffy neighborhoods. My friend Rose said the NRA will be issuing a gun to each infant born, as some groups do with books to promote literacy.'
