And while gun violence in America has made me a single-issue voter, women cannot lead single-issue lives. We will need to also fight against the misogyny, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and the anti-immigrant rhetoric that shaped the Trump campaign.
I know, the joke is old by now. The article itself is just another version of the official Liberal war chant of “OMG! My Kids are Scared of the Bogey Man I created to scare people!”
But what I like about the part I quoted is Shannon’s promise/wish to engage now in multiple causes. I even have the nagging suspicion that she may be looking into doing a run for an elected political post which will require her to have a wider “vision.” This can only benefit us because being single voters (Or Always Vote Guns as Michael Bane puts it) has worked beautifully for us and it is something the other side has never grappled: When you fight to destroy one of the Amendments of the Constitution, it is a pretty good bet that you don’t think much about the rest. Gun Advocacy is the original litmus test.
So yes, support Shannon Watt’s incursion in other advocacy fields. We want her juggling as many pins as possible.
PS: Dear Shannon, if you are rally worried about your daughter, you can always tell her to join the latest Liberal craze: Buying guns. Oh wait, she is in college in California, the state with more Hate Crimes in the nation and she can’t have a gun on campus.
