Show a liberal 1,000 stories of successful armed self-defense and he’ll ignore your argument. Find a story of a woman shot with her own gun, and you’re supposed to take him seriously.
Christy Salters Martin, a domestic violence survivor who was stabbed and shot by her husband after she attempted to leave him, has a very different perspective on the issue.
“Having a gun isn’t enough,” Christy explained in an interview with ThinkProgress. “Women who fear for their life don’t need a gun — they need to go to their local police department, they need to go a family member, they need to go to the domestic violence shelter in their area where they have some type of protection.”
Christy and her estranged husband both owned guns and both had concealed carry permits. Christy also had a very successful career in professional boxing. That didn’t stop her husband from shooting her.
“I was shot with my own gun. Just putting a weapon in the woman’s hand is not going to reduce the number of fatalities or gunshot victims that we have,” Christy pointed out. “Too many times, their male counterpart or spouse will be able to overpower them and take that gun away.”
Sure Christy, you were shot by your own gun, but plenty of other women haven’t been shot by their own guns.
Look lady, guns are tools, we don’t ban carpentry because some people can’t hammer a nail into a wall without hitting their thumbs.
You think your family, friends, and the cops can help you? Where were they when you were getting beaten? Can’t believe Sports Illustrated called you a champ. Champ of what? Of being a punching bag? You should have been the one beating your husband, yet not only he beat you, he shot you with your own gun.
The lady is not a champ, she is weak. Instead of admitting it and becoming stronger, she tries to take others down her path. Stop being a useful idiot, Christy. ThinkProgress doesn’t give a crap about you, you’re just another cog in their machine.
