Abby Spangler, head of Protest Easy Guns, seems to have gender issues. Bitter and I have been giving her a bit of a hard time on Twitter with some of the things she’s been saying about “men with guns.” This is representative of something we’ve seen a few times from Abby:
And to Starbucks corporate management: How’s it feel to be kissing up to guys carrying guns drinking your coffee? FEEL GOOD? Wouldn’t you rather be kissing up to the women of America? FEEL OUR HEAT at Saturday’s Starbucks protest. All are welcome.
So no women carry guns eh? Even though they are the fastest growing category of concealed carry license holders? Look at Arizona’s statistics? Sorry, not all men, and lots of women.
She obviously wasn’t at Cafe Berlin in DC, after the McDonald oral arguments on Tuesday. Sandy Froman was kind enough to invite us out to lunch with NRA’s General Counsel folks and Dave Hardy. There were ten of us, and five were women, four of whom are accomplished attorneys. One of them, Sandy, is also a past President of the National Rifle Association. These are women, Abby, not men, and they are all thoroughly dedicated to protecting the rights of other women to keep and bear arms. This isn’t about “men with guns.” It never has been. Time to turn off the caps lock and get real.
UPDATE: More sexism here. This being promoted by the Brady Campaign, no less.
