Gun Ban Lobby Shifts Messaging to "Guns and Violence Against Women"

You've probably seen or heard that domestic violence is the new front in the gun control battle. First, it's not that new because they've been trying that approach in the Virginia General Assembly for several years.  And, a "summit" on "gun violence" at UVA last December suggested this as one approach to pass new restrictions on the rights of law abiding gun owners.   It may be more accurate to say that guns are the newest part of the left's "War on Women" meme. The release of a new ad by Michael Bloomberg's Everytown for Gun Safety targeting three GOP U.S. Senators topped many of the news reports.
Interestingly, three of the four women on ABC's The View, did not buy into the message in that ad.

And an enterprising YouTuber came up with their own version:
No big surprise, Virginia's junior U.S. Senator jumped on the "guns cause domestic violence" band wagon yesterday.

Maybe Everytown should talk to Nikki Turpeaux about the subject. Nikki is a victim of domestic violence and she made the decision that it would never happen to her again.

Hat tip to Bearing Arms.

Update: The enterprising YouTuber had to remove the video linked above because he edited the actual Bloomberg video and Bloomberg's lawyers threatened to step in if he did not remove it.

You can however see it here, for now.
