The editors of Cosmopolitan magazine are at it again, pushing an anti-gun attitude along with some stale talking points for its audience of young women.
You may remember the March edition of the magazine featured a whole section dedicated to the proposition that women shouldn’t own a gun, and they certainly shouldn’t date a gun owner (yours truly was highlighted as a “Gunsplainer” in that section). The latest push in the magazine’s partnership with the Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety is a video featuring women talking to their gun-owning boyfriends about gun ownership. As you can imagine, all of the women featured are opposed to their partner owning firearms, and pepper the men with loaded questions (no pun intended) about gun storage, their tempers, their drinking, why they need a gun and so on.
Is it somehow impossible for the editors at Cosmo to find a woman who is pro-gun, or maybe a woman who actually owns a firearm or two? I know many, including a few who live in the New York City area, who’d be happy to talk to them. OK, “happy” may be overstating it a bit, but they’d be willing to talk to Cosmo, if only to try and bust the stereotypical view of gun owners that the magazine is so interested in perpetuating.
What does it say about the strength of its argument that Cosmo and the magazine’s Bloomberg-backed buddies are intentionally ignoring the fact that women do own firearms, many for self-defense, and some women do in fact use firearms in defense of their own lives and the lives of others?
Cosmo will never tell its audience about the Indiana mother who, back on March 24, shot an intruder who was found with a gun, a walkie-talkie and zip ties. The mom, at home with her infant child, was able to exchange gunfire with the intruder after he shot at her. Can you imagine Moms Demand Action, a group that claims it’s not anti-gun at all (just in favor of those “common-sense gun safety rules”), actually promoting and highlighting this story on its social media?
