A collection of quotes from this week’s Tower of 2A Babble.

“Here’s the bottom line: Lax gun laws put single women at risk. But we can shut down the gunsplainers and take action to keep young women safe.” — Statement from Everytown’s new website aimed at teaching young women to avoid young men who support the Second Amendment and our right to keep and bear arms.
