INDIANAPOLIS — Organizers behind Everytown for Gun Safety, the new advocacy group backed by former New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, say one of their top priorities is to turn guns into a women’s issue, akin to abortion or health care, and mobilize mothers ahead of the midterm elections in November.

Women at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting this weekend said, “Bring it on!”

“It shouldn’t be an issue and you should be able to just have your Second Amendment and be able to live your life,” said Linda Elliott, 25, a spokeswoman for 1 Million Moms Against Gun Control.

“But they make it that important because they’re trying so hard, so you have to rise to the occasion. You have to fight back. So if they’re going to make it an issue, then great — go for it.”

Democrats have made it clear that targeting female voters will be a central part of their legislative strategy. In Washington, they are pushing issues such as the Paycheck Fairness Act and raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, which they say will benefit women disproportionately.

    Sorry “Sarah” your wrong with the water boarding, that only takes care of One. You should have read your history lesson on General Jack Pershing Vs Muslim Terrorists in the Philippines.

    Why would any woman want to protect herself from a rapist? If she is armed and kills the rapist other women will never be able to enjoy what she endured. The Libs want her to shut up, lie down, spread your legs, and enjoy it right up to the point that he kills you. One anti gun fanatic said she would rather be killed than to use a gun to protect herself. I hope she never has a daughter that needs protection. All those suffering from Haplophobia become a proglodyte to spread their misery.
