The Constitution Gives Gun Owners Greater Rights Than Women

Here’s a disturbing fact to consider in 2018, the year women supposedly began to topple the patriarchy: Gun owners in the United States, a majority of whom are men, have better constitutional rights than women.

Gun owners have the Second Amendment, in place since the 18th century. The U.S. is one of only three countries that offer constitutional protection to gun owners.

Women, meanwhile, have been fighting for an equal rights amendment for decades.

This injustice burns all the more now, in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, shooting, in which a 19-year-old man used an AR-15 to murder 17 people, including 14 high school students.

Of course, the Second Amendment applies to all Americans. But is there really any doubt that guns are unabashedly, toxically masculine?

To grown men, guns are marketed as the ultimate safety device, allowing them to protect themselves and, this is crucial, their families ― wives and children ― from danger.

But we know the truth: Women are in greater danger when their partner has a gun.

Et cetera. Guns are bad, men are worse. M’kay?

    Don’t know, my significant other was in more danger than the other way around. I could never understand the logic of locking yourself in a building and going to sleep in the same bed with someone you were not treating as you would like to be treated. But I have weird notions.

  2. Joel says:

    :) That’s exactly the way I used to see it. No matter how badly you get along, never mistreat a person who knows where you sleep.

    I know 3 people who have used a handgun in self defense. 3 women. All righteous shootings of domestic partners. Yes, right, darling.

To the stake with the heretic!
