Average Moms Are Not That Dumb.

So, ladies…Moms…we need to talk. We need to talk about the impolite topics of gun legislation and gun violence; about politics and policies; about racism and bigotry. The most interesting people I know are those I can have a real conversation with. The ones who are up on their current events. Who have an opinion and aren’t embarrassed or afraid to share it. People who have a voice. We need to find our voice.

We need to find the courage to walk up to people, introduce ourselves and put our faces and our names to whatever cause we believe in. You get to choose your cause, but you have to choose something.Why do we let those who are against change intimidate us? Silence us? I never get the feeling that those who are against gun sense are concerned about appearing impolite or pushing their views on others. We’ve let them be louder and more demanding. That needs to change.

The sad part is that they cannot get the numbers of Moms they want. But there is a good reason for it: They are out there at gun ranges, practicing with their guns because they know no amount of marching or banners or comedians will actually matter when a criminal comes calling.

After decades of preaching about “empowering women,” the Left suddenly realized mothers took the word at its original meaning and figured out it is them who are the first responders. It is them that must be responsible for their own safety, not 911 and not some judge after the crime. They tried to sell the idea that victim is cool and it backfired. And the worst part is that theses new mothers, will raise a new generation under the same principles of self-empowerment  which will be the death knoll of “It is cool to be a victim.”

True feminists refuse to be victims.

PS: Moms Demand keeps drawing crowds, don’t they?

    I’d love to have a conversation about those things with A Mom or The Moms – but they just want to repeat their sound bites. We could have a great conversation about – oh! I don’t know – background checks and how to make them work better without infringing on the folks that are not the ones getting through the cracks. But no, it’s all or nothing with them.

    How many time are ‘the chillinses” going to be thrown in my face when I ask to have a conversation? How many times will sound bites be the only response to anything I say? I’ve been told that I am too reasonable and too willing to listen to what the other person has to say and try to understand why they have those beliefs. But in order to do so I need to have an exchange of thoughts, not some parrot saying the same three or four phrases over and over again.

    “Why do we let those who are against change intimidate us? Silence us? I never get the feeling that those who are against gun sense are concerned about appearing impolite or pushing their views on others. We’ve let them be louder and more demanding. That needs to change.”

    I guess it all depends on what that change is going to look like. And whether both sides are going to be changing or if one side is going to have to give something up without gaining something in return. I think it was Law Dog, but it could have been Marko or somebody else, who likened the current desire for change regarding gun laws to my having a whole birthday cake and them wanting a piece of it without giving me anything in return, and then coming back for a piece of what I have left and still not getting anything in return.

    It was my cake to begin with. If you want to share it with me you need to give me some sort of present in return, or else you are just stealing my cake a piece at a time.

    Can we start by having a conversation about that?

    stay safe.

  2. (((I never get the feeling that those who are against gun sense are concerned about appearing impolite or pushing their views on others)))….. ive never in my life had so many people fight me over a legal choice i made, the anti gun groups are very stuck in there views that if only criminals have guns we all would be safe and i can’t for the life of me figure this out? I think we need to let honest people have guns and carry them like the gangs do this idea off “if we allow honest people to carry there will be madness on the streets ” is just nuts honest people don’t turn evil when they hold a gun.
