They're in much better hands when they're in women's hands.

Shes right . Its men. Young men. Young liberal men that cause the vast majority of gun violence in America.The truth hurts, doesn't it?

She is right. Men mess a bunch of things up, women have their faults too, but women hardly ever shoot someone, except in America's inner cities that have high crime rates.

probsolver is also correct. As of January 23rd, two days ago, Chicago had 33 homicides since January 1st.

Here is the breakdown

27 by gunshot

2 by stabbing

1 by arson

1 by assault

1 by automobile

1 by child abuse (2 year old girl)

Don't worry, we still have knives, fertilizer, Tylenol, Kool-Aid, box cutters and airliners etc. Your inane "broad" brush certainly means all too many men, correct?

Let's get real. Many of us women have handguns, semi-automatics, rifles, and shot guns. And, particularly those of us who live in rural areas that are pretty isolated, are going to shoot first if there is an intruder in our home or on our property. And that's exactly as it should be! If an intruder invades our home or property spaces and kills us, it could be days before anyone knows it. If someone intrudes into our personal space, he/she deserves to be shot on sight so we can protect ourselves and our families. We women can shoot as well as the men.

yeah arielbender, good call, sorry, I got a little lazy there. I wouldn't call them liberals so much as I would say these inner city killings are carried out by people who are closer to being Democrat than anything else and American inner cities are certainly strong Democrat territory...maybe a little liberal thrown in also but not too much Republican/Conservative in these neighborhoods.

probsolver: "Shes right . Its men. Young men. Young liberal men that cause the vast majority of gun violence in America.The truth hurts, doesn't it?" If only you had a clue about what is the truth. Murderers, if anything are libertarian or anarchist. Their disdain for the rule of law is anything but liberal.

I completely agree with the premise of this article and have for 40 years but with the added suggestion that a 9:30 pm curfew for men be mandated. I'd like to be free of the neck ache I get after a walk at night from having to look over my shoulder every 10 minutes and peering into every group of bushes. I feel safer walking in the middle of the street.
