Well the month is over and luckily she didn't kill anyone. Her article, filled w/ crap statistics (Kellerman? Really?), stupidity, and ignorance, is best summed up in this paragraph:
I thought the gun would make me feel more powerful, more confident, and less fearful. I was wrong. All I felt was fear. Physically taking the gun out of the safe and putting it in a holster on my hip literally reminded me that I was going out into a big bad scary unsafe world. There were days when I put the gun back in the safe and stayed home because it simply took too much energy to be scared. It was easier to be at home without the worry and responsibility of being “the good guy with the gun.” My awareness of looming tragedy was abundant. If I had to pull the trigger, my life, the person I shot, both of our families, and all who witnessed it would be changed forever.Here's the rub. She had all these issues of fear and paranoia BEFORE carrying a gun. All the gun did was give her a focus and an excuse for it.
So all she proved to the world is that she really is as much of an idiot as all those gun owning bullies thought and that anti-gun advocates should be prevented from owning firearms.
Now compare and contrast Ms. Yewman to Emily Miller, a strong woman who used her brain and didn't endanger people to prove a political point. Miller was also attacked as an 'amateur centerfold', 'juvenile' and 'fool' by the anti-gun fanatics.
