One common assumption that leftists make is that there are certain groups of people who will vote for leftist political candidates and, therefore, that those groups of people tend to agree with leftist political ideas, like gun control.
But reality is often different from expectations, and that is certainly the case with some of the first time gun buyers in the surge in firearms sales within the last year-and-a-half here in the U.S.
Yes, it’s one of the groups that leftists automatically assume will be against guns because leftists take this group for granted to vote for leftist candidates, and you can bet that leftists will be shocked and appalled about this reality. Corey Williams writes,
Black women like [67-year-old Detroit grandmother Valerie] Rupert increasingly are considering gun ownership for personal protection, according to industry experts and gun rights advocates.
Fear of crime, especially as shootings and murders have risen in cities big and small, is one driver of the trend. But a new motivator is the display of public anger in the last 15 months beginning with confrontations in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis under the knee of police officer Derek Chauvin.
For many Black women, it’s about taking care of themselves, said Lavette Adams, a licensed firearm instructor who participated in the free Detroit-area training sponsored by gun advocacy group Legally Armed In Detroit.
“Crime against women is nothing new. Women protecting themselves, that’s new,” said Adams, who is Black.
That’s the premise behind the training that launched 10 years ago with 50 women attending. Last year, more than 1,900 participated, according to Rick Ector, Legally Armed in Detroit’s founder, who says he started it “to bring awareness and training to women who are the favorite preferred targets of bad guys, rapists and killers.”
It’s a pretty certain bet that another contributing factor is that these women aren’t feeling safer in areas where leftists are pushing to defund the police.
Let’s hope, as these women become more comfortable with guns and less dependent on government to protect them, that they’ll vote against gun control in the future. But we’ll have to see if that’s the case.
Well duhhhh, their grand babies are runnin the streets cappin each other and anyone else present!! Why wouldn’t they?
Just what we need. A bunch of Liberals who know everything about nothing running around with a loaded weapon. Just look at the Nitwit from New York. Dumb Dumb feel she was in combat on January 6, 2021. The Moron wasn’t even in the building where the so-call rioting was taken place. She was as close to the action as the house maker in upstate Washington or maybe New Hampshire. Now Dumb Dumb claims she is suffering from PTSD. Boy our combat vets must feel good about that.
But dumb dumb is not stupid because she smells Money. Get the government to agree with Ms Bartender that somehow being a block away where there was no shots fired, rioting etc., she suffers from PTSD then here come the money. Tax free money for the rest of her life. Free actually more free medical care at the expense of real combat vets. The golden cash cow for AOC is right around the corner.
Isn’t it funny that the people who were actually in the building are not crying PTSD, combat / hazardous pay etc? I wonder why. The Democratic tactic Never let something like this go to waste. Capture the money and hell with the real injured Americans. Way to go, see politicians are not really stupid they just need an event related or not to take advantage.
Politics [Poly•Tics] many blood suckers!
‘And the vet. has to fight the VA for every thing they deserve. Lock & load vets. We have to take our country back from the communist.
Your designation of those who you suspect may disagree with you on one or more issues as “leftists” is silly. pugnacious, unnecessarily divisive, and does nothing to bolster your various political positions. Which some of us “leftists” may agree with in part or in whole. Grow up!
I don’t have to say anything.
The Second Amendment says it all!
I will say it again. It time for REAL PATRIOT BLACK WOMEN take a look at the DEMOCRAT PARTY AND BLM! ADD NAACP! None of these group has done anything for any black race ! You saw it during Obama two terms! All he did was DO WHATEVER THOSE WHITE AND BLACK LIBERAL WANTED! Nothing to make the country successful!
There is nothing more amazing than to see a sixty years old person at the range! Listening, asking question, and just shooting away! And GETTING GOOD AT IT TOO!
The grandmas are tired of loosing their grand kids!
I am on their side! Willing to help. ANY TIME!
The older you get the more likely you are to become a crime victim. Criminals figure robbing you will be easy pickings. This is more the case for women, who are less likely to have self defense training, and less likely to be carrying a gun or a knife. Having a self defense firearm could make the difference between being killed or injured and being able to avoid injury.
Carry States always have less crime! Period! The criminal will think twice if he thinks you may be carrying. Without that seniors as well as the average Ave person are just plain targets!!
