Everytown’s new gun ad has stirred up lots of discussion. Even the hosts on ABC's The View believe the ad should convince you to “get a gun in your home.” Yesterday, IJReview reported on what The View's Sherri Shepherd had to say regarding the matter.
First up, Shepherd offered her “flipside” to the ad: “The flipside is when I was at my home and the alarm went off, and I ran to my son’s bedroom and Jeffrey was crying, and I realized all I had to protect me and somebody coming around that corner was a daggone wicker trash basket.
So when you’re standing there, and you don’t know how to protect your child? Get a gun in your home!”
That's common sense advice right there. The police cannot be everywhere at once.
According to a survey conducted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, 77% percent of gun dealers have reported they are selling more firearms to females. Clearly, Everytown's fearmongering ad is only going to increase that percentage. And that's good news to everybody, especially...women.
