Everytown Domestic Abuse ad bombs with The View: Moms Demand horrified.

The View is a show that cannot be called Conservative by any stretch if the imagination. On Tuesday, the ladies played the Everytown latest video showing a domestic incident where the woman gets killed by the ex-boyfriend and to most people’s surprise, three out of the four panelist were for having a gun to defend themselves:

Well, Moms Demand is having fits over the show’s direction:

Moms Demand The View Domestic

Michael Bloomberg has The Raben Group, one of the top PR firm in NYC pretty much on call to do the work for Moms and Everytown. This is not a fly-by operation but a serious company with clients including Mastercard, Time Warner and Walmart. Yet nobody saw that the ad would not only backfire but that it would do so in a well-viewed show by a majority of the hostesses.

Then again, you can escape logic only so far.

  1. So, the Domestic Violence graphic they use: is it accurate? Where do the stats come from? Or is it just another distortion of the facts?

    1. Accurate? Nope. Domestic Abuse in Europe is a shameful secret that includes setting partners on fire. If police & courts can throw it under the rug, they will and they do in a regular basis.

  2. Their research, the bit about how abused women are ten times more likely to be threatened and five times more likely to be killed by a gun than to use it to defend themselves is the epitome of lying with statistics.

    It sounds really viable, I mean, look at the wording. Abused, threatened, killed, etc…
    Let’s break this one down a bit.
    Abused: The woman is already in a personal relationship where she is being either physically or mentally dominated by someone. What type of person allows themselves to remain in that kind of a situation? Exactly the type of weak willed person that is going to allow themselves to be brainwashed by MDA/Everytown/MAIG propaganda that guns are bad in all cases, regardless of why they are used.

    Threatened: Too many questions here. What was the threat, and who decided it was a threat? Too much latitude for abuse of that word. If GF is mad that you came home late from the range, and is yelling at you while you are taking your guns out of the car, and (GASP! THE HORROR!) actually respond in a forceful voice while holding a firearm, is that a threat?

    Killed: Let’s assume that it is true, that an abused woman is five times more likely to be killed by a gun. Well, that leads to a lot of questions: Who’s gun? Five times more likely than what? Fists? Cars? Or is it five times more likely that an abused woman will be killed than a woman in a healthy relationship?

    Lying with stats is fun, isn’t it?

    Oh, and that graphic, what a perfect example of lying with statistics that one is. Take a look at the numbers, and the caption. First of all, it is not a chart of women killed in domestic violence situations, it is a graphic of rate of female homicides.
    Next, look at the numbers. US is shown as 1.54 female homicides per 100,000, The next closest is 0.51 per 100,000. While a 3:1 ratio looks bad, remember that a lot of other countries report crime differently than the US, and that alone could influence the numbers.
    Finally, that chart demonstrates clearly the danger of presenting “small numbers.” Tweak the Y axis a bit, and it will present a very different story.

    1. It’s kind of hard to sell the message “We don’t really care if your crazy ex beats the crap out of you and kidknaps your kid, as long as de doesn’t have a gun while he does it.”

  3. And once again, the girls who decided to get guns to protect themselves with are way sexier than the one who hates guns!

    Take note, ladies. Guns make you more attractive and more able to defend yourself.
