The Democratic war on women's Second Amendment rights

An often used Democratic talking point is that conservatives and Republicans are waging a war against women -- be it women's rights, health, education, wages, etc. But increasingly, as seen here, it's Democrats who are waging the war on women, specifically, on their personal safety. It's just an extension of the broader left's march against the Second Amendment. Consider the case of long time Clinton courtier, and Virginia governor, Terry McAuliffe:

A few weeks ago, Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia said that domestic abuse victims don’t need a gun for self-defense.  McAuliffe vetoed a bill that would have let domestic abuse victims receive a temporary permit to carry a gun for self-defense after they had been to court and seen a judge in order to get a restraining order.   The temporary carry permit would be in effect while the victims applied for their state carry license.  Democrat Governor McAuliffe said no.

In vetoing the bill, McAuliffe said:

“The bill perpetuates the dangerous fiction that the victims of domestic violence will be safer by arming themselves.  It would inject firearms into a volatile domestic violence situation, making that situation less safe, not more.”

The General Assembly was unable to muster the two-thirds vote needed to over ride McAuliffe's veto.

The result:

Governor McAuliffe is right in that Virginia is now a little safer.. if you are a domestic abuser.  McAuliffe made the world tragically worse for the victims of abuse.  McAuliffe and his political supporters can’t, or won’t, distinguish the defenders from the attackers.  McAuliffe has political company.  The elected Democrats in California and New Jersey can’t tell the difference either.  These Democrats will continue to blame the victim and cling to the failed fantasy of gun-control.  These politicians have done everything they can to stop the victims from defending themselves.

Shame on these politicians and shame on the voters who put them in office.  If your significant other beats you and you live in California, Virginia, or New Jersey, then I want  you to leave the state.  Move to a free state and take a firearms class in a hurry.

Or you can fight back at the ballot box, and send the anti-gun Democrats and their war on women down to defeat.
