“In a video PSA created in collaboration with ATTN: and the gun safety grassroots organization Everytown for Gun Safety, Troian breaks down the problems with the so-called ‘boyfriend loophole.’” (Click below to watch the video, after our gun advertising, doh..AmmoLand Editor.)
That must be why Bloomberg’s Magical Misery Tour had to keep locations of its planned bus stops close to the vest, lest they be outnumbered by gun owner rights activists who could only find out at the last minute. That must be why he and his cadre of fellow One Percenters had to reportedly spend $20 million on Question 1 in Nevada and still barely managed to squeak out a less than 1% “win” carrying only Clark County. And that was so ineptly written Attorney General Adam Laxalt declared it unenforceable.
Still, if we can’t trust Teen Vogue (the anti-gun, anti-Trump purveyor of all things “progressive” and incubator of tomorrow’s indignant pussy hat marchers) to indoctrinate our daughters on the virtues of male disarmament, who can we trust?
How about Troian Bellisario, or, as many would no doubt ask, “Who?”
“Troian Bellisario, daughter of producers Donald P. Bellisario and Deborah Pratt, made her film debut at the age of 3,” the Internet Movie Database documents. “She made several TV and movie appearances in her teens (most of the TV appearances were in shows produced by her father)…”
Hey, at least we’re talking about someone who’s paid her dues. Either that or signed the chit and let Daddy pay. And if we’re to take our lead on how to formulate real world political opinions from insulated, celebrity stage props, who better to heed than Hollywood Royalty?
So what kind of vacuous crap is the Pretty Little Lemming spewing?
“I was shocked when I learned that 50 American women are shot and killed every month by intimate partners like husbands or boyfriends,” she parroted (seriously, “parroted.”). “This violence against women is entirely preventable. I’m proud to speak out to help close the loopholes in our gun laws that put women at risk.”
How it would be “entirely preventable” is left unsaid. The gun-grabbers never talk about their end game, preferring to mask the infringement du jour under the guise of “common sense gun safety.”
A good start that ought to cut numbers down significantly might be to not get into superficial rutting relationships with career thugs who are already “prohibited persons,” and instead be selective and choose responsible and committed partners. Notice the confiscationists never tell us how many of the five million NRA members, arguably the most heavily armed population on the planet, are represented in that monthly tally.
She also, no doubt in order to maintain necessary “progressive standards,” leaves another inconvenient truth unspoken:
But experts in the field say that one set of victims — black women — is at a far greater risk to experience the grimmest of all domestic violence statistics: They are about three times more likely to die at the hands of a partner or ex-partner than members of other racial groups. Intimate-partner homicide is also among the leading causes of death for black women ages 15 to 35.
That’s OK, Troian. The Big Boss wants people to forget about that because pulling that thread might expose him as the racist he's already proved to be:
Pressure from Michael Bloomberg has caused the Aspen Institute and Grassroots TV to spike distribution of a video of his speech in which he advocated for cities to bar minority males up to age 25 from having guns, The Aspen Times reported Friday. The decision not to make the footage available for broadcast and distribution was made at the request of Bloomberg “representatives.”
He and those joining in this campaign are also sexist (or I should say “misandrist,” even though lying and/or delusional Prozis will tell you there’s no such thing while simultaneously “wishing” for it). That’s not just for discouraging women from the best means of defense as an equalizer against stronger males.
Why call it the “boyfriend” loophole? After all, even though women admittedly only commit 14.7% of homicides, with much of that no doubt due to their weaker physical stature, even anti-gun “researcher” Arthur L. Kellerman admits:
In contrast to men, who killed nonintimate acquaintances, strangers, or victims of undetermined relationship in 80% of cases, women killed their spouse, an intimate acquaintance, or a family member in 60% of cases. When men killed with a gun, they most commonly shot a stranger or a non-family acquaintance.
No matter – when “progressives” are on a roll, what they want is all that matters. Why should the unconstitutional tyranny of imposing prior restraint punishments without due process on male gun owners (especially the evil white ones who belong to NRA and own “assault weapons” with “30 magazine clips” and “shoulder things that go up”) trump feelings?
No matter that “boyfriend” is hardly a fixed legal term, nor is “date.” There’s also the “Hell hath no fury” factor, along with just finding out you’ve let a confused and hostile bipolar head case vampire cross your threshold, and now you just want them out.
Instead, legislate to ensure revenge-motivated accusations über alles, and your rights be damned…?
How about if someone commits a criminal act they get prosecuted, pronounced guilty by a fully-informed jury of their peers and convicted before a just and appropriate sentence is meted out? Or is that something only extremist haters ask for?
It must be, because 12 states and the District of Columbia have some form of Troian’s Law on the books, and the plan is to impose them on all the rest, in every state and in Everytown where “Pretty Little Liars” airs.
Not that big, ugly liars bent on citizen disarmament intend to stop there.
