Why is she still talking?
Julianne Moore, professional
mimic actress and apparently part time shill for gun control, thinks it’s her calling to remind women that America’s gun laws are “their issue, too”.
Moore took to fellow harpie Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter on Tuesday where she wrote, (in part):
Women in the United States are 11 times more likely to be murdered with a gun than women in any other developed nation. More than half are killed by a boyfriend, husband, or someone else in her family. There is a new website, Singled Out, that specifically highlights how America’s lax gun laws put single women at risk.
As these instances have become daily occurrences in American women’s lives, we feel outraged, unsafe, and helpless. Then, just as we call for more regulation, we are drowned out by voices saying that we would all be safer if the “good guys” were armed.
Where guns are concerned, it is not a good-guy-versus-bad-guy argument. It should not be a partisan argument. It should not be a pro-gun-versus-anti-gun argument. It is not an argument about our Constitution. The Second Amendment protects the right of a United States citizen to bear arms. But a gun is a machine. And if you choose to bear arms, you have a responsibility to bear them safely.
And most gun owners agree: A majority of them approve of common-sense gun-safety measures. Around 90 percent of them support universal background checks. A large majority of American citizens believe we need to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous individuals like stalkers and terrorists. Most gun owners keep guns away from children and store them locked and unloaded in their homes. Most gun owners believe in tighter regulations for gun dealers.
A majority of us are on the same side, so why does our country have a gun murder rate 25 times that of other developed countries?
Because our weak gun-safety laws allow guns to end up in the hands of dangerous people. Roughly 40 percent of firearms in the United States are acquired without a background check, so criminals can obtain weapons they shouldn’t have.
Wow. I’m offended as a woman and a gun owner.
I’m proud to say I’m one of the “good guys” with a gun. She thinks women feel “helpless” to gun laws? When I read about women like Carol Bowne or Melora Rivera, I think, “Is this what you people want? THIS is helpless!”
Guns prevent an estimated 2.5 million crimes a year (6,849 every day) and I don’t want my daughters or any woman to be denied a gun because someone else is scared of it.
Moore also admits in her bitter diatribe that a percentage of guns are acquired without a background check, but does she know that 93% of guns used in crimes are obtained illegally? We don’t have weak gun laws, we have people who don’t follow the law – including our government.
90% of gun owners do not support universal background checks because we know the background checks in place, again, for citizens who buy their guns legally, work.
Ms. Moore: America doesn’t have a gun problem. You have a gun problem. Learn the facts from someone other than Bloomberg and stick to your day job. Your ignorant rhetoric is offensive to women who know better.
