Louisiana Sheriff Faces Backlash For Encouraging Women To Use Firearms

posted on August 20, 2015

According to The Times-Picayune, 45-year-old Monica Johnson of Geismar, La., was brutally bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat by her estranged husband. Police found her body in her backyard and the back door shattered. 

Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeff Wiley responded to the grisly murder, saying, “Get your concealed weapons permit. Ladies, learn how to safely handle a weapon, learn how to safely store a weapon, and when you’re in a situation like this, shoot him in your back yard before he gets in your house. Drop him.” 

The sheriff admitted it may sound radical, but said that extreme violence requires extraordinary efforts for protection. The Left quickly rallied against Wiley’s advice, claiming that women who wield guns against abusers are more likely to have the gun turned against them.

Can detractors honestly believe that Monica Johnson was better off without a firearm to protect herself? It’s too bad we can’t ask her.
