There’s no doubt that conservative commentator and Second Amendment advocate Dana Loesch’s new Freedom’s Safest Place television advertisement, titled “Moms Like Me,” is an impactful piece of work that represents the thoughts of millions of women across this great country. If you haven’t seen the spot yet, view it here.
What happened after that commercial began to air on television might be a surprise to you—but it likely won’t. If you’ve been paying much attention the past few years, the growing hatred of anti-gunners toward the freedoms ensured by the Second Amendment is a hard trend to miss. After the release of Loesch’s ad, a gun-ban advocate who had harassed Loesch several times in the past doctored the video to depict Loesch, author of the book Hands Off My Gun, shooting herself in the head with a semi-automatic pistol.
Loesch learned of the video and first saw it while at her son’s Little League baseball games. The second video soon went viral, causing much alarm to Loesch, her family and any reasonable American who saw it. Since the video’s creator had harassed Loesch previously and the threat seemed to be escalating, she contacted the FBI to address the situation.If you’ve been paying much attention the past few years, the growing hatred of anti-gunners toward the freedoms ensured by the Second Amendment is a hard trend to miss.
But Loesch is nothing if not a fighter. Never one to back down from what she knows is right, Loesch quickly took to Fox News to discuss with Megyn Kelly the vicious video and the disturbing trend of anti-gun advocates attempting to bully and intimidate those who don’t agree with them.
“It’s always the people who hate guns and don’t want people to be able to lawfully possess them that want you to die by a gun,” Loesch said on “The Kelly File” on Sept. 28. “Me wanting to be a law-abiding Second Amendment practitioner does not magically put a gun into the hand of anyone who does not want one. It does not magically arm criminals, either. And that’s the disconnect.”
Loesch continued by lamenting how incredibly disturbing it is to her to see the amount of harassment people often receive just for expressing a different opinion.
“Some of these anti-gun advocates and the groups to which they belong really need to watch their rhetoric, because it’s inciting actual threats,” she said. “And I fear that it could one day incite violence against people that just want to be law-abiding Americans.”
Women represent the fastest-growing segment of gun owners and shooters in the United States today. And Loesch is one of many intelligent, brave women not afraid to speak up for the Second Amendment, even though there are those who will despise her for that.
Three cheers for Dana Loesch and the growing number of strong, freedom-loving women who are ready to defend their right to protect themselves and their families. These women are quickly becoming a major political force destined to turn the tide of freedom for generations to come.
