Comic: Guns 'n Women

Milk Run

Conservative activist Gayle Trotter appeared at Senate Judiciary Committee gun control hearings this week to say that women need assault rifles – "scary-looking guns" – because a woman "might have to fight off four or five criminals 'with her children screaming in the background."

Trotter was unable to provide an example of when a mother-of-young-screaming-children with an assault rifle was able to repel four or five criminals invading her home (or bunker), and she was unable to provide an example of when a mother-of-young-screaming-children ran out of ammo in her eight-shot .357 Magnum after shooting three of the invaders and was killed by the fourth (or fifth).

But let's not let that get in the way of a good story.
