Wow, just wow:
In the increasingly confrontational debate over the nation’s gun laws, two female archetypes have emerged.
There’s the grieving mother whose child was killed in a shooting and whose pleas for stricter regulation seem unassailable. And there’s the flinty mother who wants maximum firepower to take matters into her own hands to protect her brood.
Yeah, so a parent whose child was actually murdered is equivalent to a crazy woman who has fantasies of fighting off a horde of home invaders.
It was precisely Nancy Lanza’s unhinged fantasies that allowed Newtown to happen. The Newtown shootings happened because a mentally ill young man had easy access to guns because his mother was a lunatic prepper. Gayle Trotter is not a legitimate counter to the parents whose children were murdered in their classroom. Gayle Trotter is Nancy Lanza. She’s not a potential victim just trying to defend herself. She’s a dangerous lunatic who thinks that the rest of us have to suffer the occasional mass murder just so she can indulge her paranoid delusions.
You’d think the “liberal Washington Post” could see the difference between the moral standing of the two “archtypes”… but alas, no.
