John Lott Questions What The Women’s March Really Represents

posted on July 14, 2017

Women’s March organizers are leading a protest today against the alleged “intimidating rhetoric of hatred” and to “strive for the respect of the civil and human rights of all people.” The location: the headquarters of America’s longest-standing civil rights organization.

Dana Loesch certainly sees the irony in that. She refers to it as the “Some Women’s March,” as the group clearly doesn’t represent her. So who do they represent? And do they represent a woman’s view on guns? Noted criminal researcher John R. Lott penned an article for Fox News that provides some clarity.

He references a new PEW survey indicating that 40 percent of women live in a home with a gun—and almost a quarter of those women own a gun personally. Of the women who don’t live in a home with a gun, 45 percent say they can see themselves owning a gun.

Adding to the irony of the protest: One of the fastest-growing groups of gun owners in America is black women. So, remind us again what the protest is actually about?
