Don't You Wish You Had A Gun Now, Bitch?
A truly chilling look by Mother Jones at the vicious tactics gun extremists are increasingly using against women who dare to advocate for any form of gun control, with stomach-churning stories of stalking, bullying, hate mail, rape threats, death threats and recreational firing squads masquerading as target practice. One activist, paralyzed in a 2004 shooting, has been spat on, subjected to a late night mock execution, and told that her assailants should have aimed better. Already "as broken as I can be by gun violence," she says, "it was a little man and a little moment." Even as fringe psycopaths gleefully attack anyone they think threatens their firepower, meanwhile, the NRA has embarked on a series of videos aimed at specific demographics - kids, women, guys who want to be Liam Neeson - to further peddle their poison. For a taste of what's going on out there, a "Mother's Day" target practice by one of these smarmy sickos. Be very afraid.
