Gayle Trotter appears about minute 4.
“An assault weapon in the hands of a young woman defending her babies in her home becomes a defense weapon,” said Trotter, a mother of six. “And the peace of mind she has … knowing she has a scary-looking gun gives her more courage when she’s fighting hardened violent criminals.”
For all her concern over the little woman, it seems that Gayle Trotter didn’t even get the right weapon. The Little Woman fired a shotgun, not an AR-15. Additionally, Trotter has worked against the Women Against Violence Act WAVA) that is before Congress now.
According to Huffingtonpost.com:
In 2012, she wrote on the Independent Women’s Forum’s blog that VAWA infringed upon the rights of men who were falsely accused of domestic abuse. The law would also embolden “false accusers,” who would take “needed resources like shelters and legal aid … denying real victims of abuse access to these supports,” she wrote. Trotter and the forum characterized VAWA as “reckless demagoguery.”
I guess there is not concern over those who might get falsely accused and shot with a scary-looking gun.
I have been accused of “attacking” Ms. Trotter, which I had not done–just her message. Now I think I will “attack” her. What kind of flim-flam is she trying to pull off? She can’t even tell the story right. Does that classify as lying before the Senate? I think we need an honest broker here.
No one wants to ban your average shotgun. That seems to be the most difficult concept of all.
