" house is safe if it has a gun in it."

In the words of Gloria Steinem, feminist icon:

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".
