Gun Rights Advocate ‘Shoots’ Down Gun Control Critic’s Attack

Dana Loesch is a conservative radio talk show host. She has also appeared on ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News, HBO and The Blaze. She is also a strong outspoken advocate for Second Amendment gun rights.

Recently, Loesch recorded a one minute video for NRATV in which she stated:

“I’m a mom.

And just like millions of other women, that’s why I own guns.

We’re responsible, we’re law-abiding and we’re everything that makes America strong.

Every day, we’re willing to use a firearm to defend our families.

But the media will never tell those stories.

If a mom puts a gun to the face of a home-invading thug and makes him run for his life … the story gets buried.

But if she’s unarmed and murdered … the cameras will be at the scene before the police.

It’s time for moms like me to speak out.

We are the majority.

We demand the freedom to defend our families. And we challenge the media to tell the truth about our rights.

I’m the National Rifle Association of America.

And I’m Freedom’s Safest Place.”

After hearing about Loesch’s video, Shannon Watts, Founder of Moms Demand Action attacked Loesch, saying that women like her just live to ‘shoots thugs in the head.’ She tweeted, mocking Loesch:

“I’m a mom. And just like millions of other women, I dress head-to-toe in black leather and live to shoot ‘thugs’ in the head.”

According to Moms Demand Action website:

“Shannon Watts is a mother of five who, prior to founding Moms Demand Action, was a stay-at-home mom and former communications executive. The day after the Sandy Hook tragedy, Shannon started a Facebook group with the message that all Americans can and should do more to reduce gun violence. The online conversation turned into a grassroots movement of American mothers fighting for public safety measures that respect the Second Amendment and protect people from gun violence. Moms Demand Action has established a chapter in every state of the country and is part of Everytown for Gun Safety, the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country, with more than three million supporters.”

In response to Watts Twitter attack, Loesch responded:

Yikes. @shannonrwatts is a very jealous & insecure chick. Sorry not sorry ur so easily triggered, lol.”

“I love how gun-control advocacy has devolved into obsessing over and attacking my looks. I hold the power by living rent-free in your head.”

I have found the same thing when dealing with many anti-gun liberals. They blame the guns, not the people who use them. Then they attack those that defend the constitutional right to own guns. When they can’t counter the logic of gun owners they attack the person in an attempt to discredit them and make themselves look holier-than-thou. I’ve had liberals call me blood thirsty, inhumane, cold-blooded and worse.

I once worked with a man who reminded me of Shannon Watts. I asked him what he would do if an intruder broke into his house and began to rape his wife or daughters and he said he would not condone violence even in that case. His wife found out, not from me, and divorced him. She later told me that she wanted a man who would defend and fight for her, not some sniveling liberal coward. I asked her what she would do and she said she would definitely shoot anyone who threatened her and her girls.

In the past, I’ve reported a number of cases of moms using loaded guns in the house to protect themselves and their family from intruders. What would Watts want a woman and mom to do in those instances? Wouldn’t Watts try to take some kind of action to protect her kids? If not, why not? If so, then doesn’t that make her a hypocrite?
