"A woman who wants a weapon capable of protecting herself and her children is a 'jackass' but a woman who wants other people to pay thousands of dollars for her birth control is treated sympathetically as a victim."
- Commenter "MidAmerica2" to this post at Newsbusters.
The commenter is absolutely spot on here about how the left thinks. A woman who wants to own a "scary" gun in order to best protect herself, her home and her children is a "jackass" but a woman who wants taxpayers to pay for her to sleep around and have unprotected sex isn't.
I am fully supportive of birth control, a woman's right to choose etc., I just don't think everyone else should be forced to pay for it. If that's the case then where are my federal funds etc. to help me buy a gun?.....
This is exactly how anti-gunners think of us. You're just an average woman with a house and kids who owns a rifle, but to the anti-gunners you're a "jackass" for wanting to keep that rifle and defending your rights.
"And therein lies the problem --with having to defend assault weapons. Because if you go out and try to defend assault weapons, then you end up looking like a jackass. It's just, just, seriously."
Could you imagine the MSM reaction if Limbaugh or some other talking head came right out and called a family member of one of the kids murdered at Newtown a "Jackass" for supporting gun control?
