The WP Daily Stupid award goes to Gayle Trotter who, at today's hearings on Capitol Hill, that women need automatic weapons to feel safe so when that a band of marauders breaks into the house, a mom can take them all out with a single clip, thereby protecting her children. She argued that argued that a ban on assault weapons would "disarm" vulnerable women and "put them at a severe disadvantage" in fights with multiple criminals.

She managed to say (with a straight face) “An assault weapon in the hands of a young woman defending her babies in her home becomes a defense weapon."

Wanna know what I wanna know? How many young women have actually used an assault weapon to fend off a band of criminals in the foyer ...or the kitchen for that matter?

Really, does she think anyone is buying this ...besides the NRA?

Sure, several hundred innocent people will be killed every year, but that's a small price to pay for FREEDOM!

All this absurdity would be funny if real human lives weren't at stake. Something is very wrong with our society.

If Moslem (or brown-faced) people are automatically suspected to be potential terrorists, then why aren't white guys automatically suspected of being latent homicidal maniacs ?
