My response to your post is about how in the past women had no protection from the law if their husbands wanted to beat them or whatever... The law considered it to be a "domestic" issue not a "legal" one for them to handle. I was just saying we need to look to the past to see how these things have come about.
Nothing in life is equal, but don't worry it's still a man's world.
Bonnie, I think you are right that we do tend to create more little messes in the process of cleaning up the big ones. However, the bottom line is that we cannot ever justify bad behavior by pointing to other bad behavior.
This is about more than just a man and his guns. The law would affect all people, and their subsequent right to bear arms. The problem with the legislation is that it basically allows a system that is already heavily abused (yes, mostly by women) to not only continue, but to get worse. The sad but true fact is that women are able to abuse this system here for ONE main reason. Because NOBODY likes a scumbag that beats up women. I'm not even sure the scumbags who do that actually like themselves, unless they live in some country like Whateverstan that takes pride in degrading women. So, when a woman makes those claims in modern-day civilized society, people will take the claims very seriously.
A lot of women take advantage of that, and I have personally seen it happen to two good friends of mine. In one case, the woman was just drunk and pissed off so she lied to the cops, and in the other the woman just wanted to get custody of their child. Both girls ended up having to admit they were full of crap, and what's even funnier is both of my friends are still with those women.
