Just another example of liberal women promoting more bad policies that jeopardizes their less wealthy fans; who can’t afford armed security guards to follow them 24/7.
Oscar winning actress Julianne Moore, who is often seen surrounded by armed guards when she makes an appearance on red carpets around the world, is claiming in a letter that lax gun laws put single women at risk. The letter was written as part of actress Lena Dunham’s (who also enjoys hired armed protection) Letters from Lenny series.
“Women in the United States are 11 times more likely to be murdered with a gun than women in any other developed nation. More than half are killed by a boyfriend, husband, or someone else in her family. There is a new website, Singled Out, that specifically highlights how America’s lax gun laws put single women at risk,” shewrote.
First, it’s likely Moore didn’t write the letter herself, but rather it was written by someone at Bloomberg’s gun control group Everytown, which is the parent project of Singled Out.
Second, strict gun control laws and government disarmament get single women killed and put them at severe risk, not “lax” gun laws.
Take for example Carol Bowne, who applied for a pistol permit in New Jersey to protect herself from a violent, felon ex-boyfriend. The strict gun control process takes months for permits to be approved and in most cases, denied. Bowne was stabbed to death on day 40 of waiting for her permit.
A New Jersey woman was murdered by her ex-boyfriend on Wednesday as she waited for approval from the state to buy a handgun. In addition to obtaining a restraining order against her ex, Michael Eitel, and installing security cameras in her home, Carol Bowne had applied for a permit to purchase a handgun on April 21.
Unlike most states, New Jersey’s restrictive gun laws require a permit to purchase a handgun. The permit process can take several months to complete. Bowne’s murder has left her friends and neighbors in shock. “She did absolutely everything she was supposed to,” her coworker Denise Lovallo told the paper. “Do they have enough now to get him?”
