Roseanne Barr Wants to Arm Women

Apparently unicorns are real, because I found something I actually agree with Roseanne Barr on. That something, is gun control.

The Washington Times is reporting that Roseanne Barr went on a pro-gun Twitter rant following Joe Salazar’s ridiculous comments about women, guns and rape. If you recall, Salazar, in a real men of genius moment, said the following:

It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the [rape] whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at…

And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop — pop a round at somebody.

Most sane people disagreed with Salazar. Surprisingly, Roseanne Barr, who is a former Green Party Presidential candidate, disagreed as well. She said the following on Twitter:

Arm the women of the world-send guns and ammo everywhere-train them to make clean headshots. #howtopreventrape

Perhaps our friends at Off The Grid Concepts should send her a “Two in the chest” shirt. She went on to tweet:

Until women use force to fight force, force will win against them

You see what I mean? Unicorns…who knew.

    She is never lacking opinions, this is one of the few I probably agree with her on.

    Wow, GO Roseanne! I agree, training and a clean headshot is a perfect combination for anyone defending themselves!

    Wake up and smell the coffee, guys. Women, gays, and liberals are all arming themselves. Keep bashing them on your forums and you simply divide the cause. Not everyone who has a gun is going to think like you.

      As well they should. I couldn’t care less about gender, sexual preference, or political alignment. To me it’s a liberty issue. You’re either for liberty, or you’re against it. Roseanne Barr, is typically NOT for liberty (a self-described socialist), so it’s surprising to me that she and I align on this issue.

    I am in agreement with Roseanne Barr…. I am dreaming or she is making sense for once???

    Dr. L. is absolutely correct. This is not a R. against D issue. This is not a conservative vs. liberal issue. This is a Constitutional issue. This is an issue that simply divides Americans into two groups, those in favor of gun control and those against. I am very pro-gun. I am also very pro-choice. Many conservatives have called me a liberal for my beliefs regarding other social issues like taxes etc… However, I am as conservative as conservative can be when guns are concerned. My “liberal” opinions on other societal issues should not alienate me from supporting the 2nd amendment and our right as American citizens to bear arms. So, with that being said, you right wingers should be very cautious about lumping all of the “liberals” into one category as you will effectively destroy the footing many Democrats, Republicans, Liberals & Conservative Americans refer to as “common ground.” I would offer two bits of advice that regardless of whether or not you agree with, are definitely worthy of further consideration or thought. First, do not isolate “liberal” supporters of 2nd amendment rights. When I argue in favor of gun freedom and our right as Americans to own any weapon of our own choosing, I do so with more credibility than the typical hate spewing pro-gun advocate. Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, resist becoming part of the separatist mentality that divides our Nation. The issue of gun control provides common ground for us all. Capitalize on that. The 2nd amendment issue is something that should unite all gun owners, not divide them. My views of what is “right” and what is “wrong” in this Country are probably much closer to many of yours than you might believe. I have said this many times and I will say it again, I am not fully represented by either party yet, I am forced to choose between the two. So with that being said, you do OUR cause, OUR fight against those who would ban guns a great disservice by alienating me or, gun owners like me. Just my two cents….Gotta go, my AR-15 needs cleaning…..

      I agree with some of what you said, but not all. Much of it comes off as quite arrogant.

      “So, with that being said, you right wingers should be very cautious about lumping all of the “liberals” into one category…”

      Don’t you think that’s a bit of a contradiction? Be cautious about lumping all liberals into one category, and then call “us” (I don’t even know who us is in your statement) right wingers? I, sir, am not a “right winger”.

      “…typical hate spewing pro-gun advocate…”

      I don’t know what you’re talking about.

      “…resist becoming part of the separatist mentality that divides our Nation”

      And yet you yourself stereotype gun owners as “right wingers” and “hate spewing”. Is that supposed to bring us together?

      “…I am forced to choose between the two [parties]”

      No you absolutely aren’t. In most cases, there are more than two choices on the ballot. This is a large reason why this country is screwed – people believe the lie that it’s either Republican or Democrat. How about neither?

      Well said. Some would pick it apart but there are lots of azzholes like opionions out there. Standing for the 2nd is liberty not B/S politics.

        Wait, I’m confused…who’s the asshole?

  6. William McC VI February 22, 2013 at 11:39 am #

    This is why I love Monderno.. Excellent respectful retort Brandon. For the record, im a libertarian.. I dont subscribe to left or the right, I believe they are both just as dangerous to liberty.

    Perhaps I should have clarified Brandon and your points are well taken. I do recognize the hypocrisy of my casual use of “right wingers” and “hate spewing pro-gun advocates” although my usage of those labels were not intended to be perceived as an “all encompassing” label for gun owners. In all fairness, and what I think was lost in your perception of my intended message is that there is indeed a number of “hate spewing” pro-gun advocates. The term “right wingers” is directed at those specific types of people who continually fail to see the the “bigger picture.” The bigger picture in my mind is the battle for gun ownership rights in this Country transcends political labels of party and most certainly the derogatory labels each side attaches to the most radical of the oppositions members. Finally, as you have suggested; we are not forced to choose between the two parties. I however vehemently disagree and as proof of my hypothesis, I would like to challenge you to name one single President that was neither affiliated with the Republican or Democratic Party? As for voting for a 3rd party I would like to believe that someday a 3rd party will actually stand a chance at winning but, then we delve into the “way things ought to be” vs. “the way things really are,” and that my friend, would open a whole new can of proverbial “Worms.” I would like to reiterate my point once again. Gun owners, supporters of our Nation’s Constitution and the 2nd Amendment need to cease with the bickering and name calling and focus on what really matters, keeping the 2nd amendment in tact. No offense meant to any of the subscribers of the more conservative political ideologies….

      Thank you for clarifying.

      In the future, it would be helpful if you would direct lectures to those you feel responsible for not seeing the “bigger picture” as you put it. I felt like you were directing your comments at me, the author.

      “I would like to challenge you to name one single President that was neither affiliated with the Republican or Democratic Party?”

      The answer you’re looking for is Millard Filmore. Yes, I see your point, but no, I don’t agree with you. Just because something has “always been” a certain way, does not make it right. By your way of thinking, we should all just go along with the problem because it can’t be changed. Well, not with that attitude it can’t.

      I voted Libertarian this past Presidential election for a couple reasons:
      1. Gary Johnson was the best candidate on the ballot. Perfect? There’s no such thing. Better than Obama and Romney? Hands down.
      2. This video explains it – http://youtu.be/bS7vCRlDC6A

      I would also like to point out that you have MANY more elections to vote in besides the Presidential election. Vote for the best candidate always, and encourage everyone you know to do likewise.

    Brandon,
    Thought you might enjoy another “liberal’s” take on our 2nd amendment right to bear arms. Hope you are well. http://www.michaelzwilliamson.com/blog/item/the-post-in-which-i-piss-off-everybody

      I’ve read it, thanks.

    Total agreement with Ms. Barr on this one. And like others have said… IDGAFF what people have for a political party alliance, sexual orientation, religious preference, etc. I DO care that they believe in what made and makes this country great, that they’re committed to FREEDOM. If we see eye to eye on THAT, the other items all take care of themselves. Nobody needs laws telling people what their sexual preference should be (for example) any more than they need laws telling them what guns they can and can’t have, and what they can and can’t do with them in their defense of their life and the lives of those they love.
