What we need is a big national movement, like MADD, that simply says no house is safe if it has a gun in it. That connects our home and our lives to the armaments everywhere.
It seems Gloria is a student of the often debunked Kellerman study.
And what is "safe"? Ms. Steinem thinks safe is being disarmed. Most of the commenters at Feministing disagree with her:
...nothing equalizes the physical power discrepancy between a large man and a small woman like a gun.
Apparently, they didn't get the memo that "guns are bad news for women".
