I've often written about the fact that gun control is every bit as much of a women's issue as equal pay and maternity leave. Anyone who believes in destroying the 2nd Amendment doesn't understand what an equalizer a firearm can be. A determined woman with a gun can fend off a number of larger male attackers, sometimes without even firing a shot.
I know this is true because I have had occasion to protect myself and my daughter with a gun in the past. But if some gun control advocates had their way, all guns would be banned. Every single one. This would take away the right of women all over the country to protect themselves.
I argue constantly that guns have a place in every woman's home. Below, you can find 3 stories about women who defended themselves and others with guns in just the past week.
A Restaurant Worker in Wisconsin
Miranda Schaeffer told Fox & Friends that her gun may have been the deciding factor in saving the lives of herself and a co-worker last week.
She and her co-worker were physically attacked by a customer who wanted a refund at the George Webb restaurant in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where they work last Friday night, July 6, 2018. Schaeffer recounted the incident:
"He didn't look like he was playing any games with anybody. He wanted his money," Schaefer said. "But he didn't want to wait. Like literally maybe a minute. And as soon as [Kaehler] said you can't come back here, that's when he punched her. And I said 'no, we're not going to have no more of this.' So I pulled out the firearm and that's when I said 'you've got to go.'"
Schaefer said the assailant would have kept assaulting her and her coworker, had she not pulled out her gun and told him to move along.
"He would have most definitely kept on coming," Schaefer said. "He would have kept on hitting. He would have tried to fight both of us. The punch was originally for me because I told him no about the refund because I'm not allowed to you give the refund."
"He didn't want to wait. And since he didn't want to wait that's when he punched her," she continued. "He was going to keep on going and keep on going. It was going to be bad. That punch itself was terrible." (source)
