Catfight: Watts from Moms Demand Action Locks Horns with NRA’s Loesch

These two women just don’t like each other. Yes, this isn’t the first time these two have locked horns nor will it be the last. I am, of course, referring to Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Dana Loesch, the conservative commentator and NRA News spokeswoman.

Recently, Watts took a swipe at Loesch who appeared in an NRA video promoting a woman’s right to carry a firearm for self-defense.

“I’m a mom and just like millions of other women, that’s why I own guns,” Loesch said in the video. “We’re responsible, we’re law-abiding, and we’re everything that makes America strong. Every day we’re willing to use a firearm to defend our families, but the media will never tell those stories.”

“If a mom puts a gun to the face of a home-invading thug and makes him run for his life, the story gets buried, but if she’s unarmed and murdered, the cameras will be at the scene before the police,” Loesch continued.

Watts not only bashed Loesch for her messaging but also took a dig at her sartorial choices.

“I’m a mom. And just like millions of other women, I dress head-to-toe in black leather and live to shoot ‘thugs’ in the head,” said Watts on Twitter, clearing mocking Loesch.

Loesch fired back, “Yikes. Shannon Watts is a very jealous & insecure chick. Sorry not sorry ur [sic] so easily triggered, lol.”

In another post, Loesch criticized the general tendency for anti-gunners to take cheap shots in lieu of discussing the glaring flaws with respect to their position on concealed carry.

“I love how gun-control advocacy has devolved into obsessing over and attacking my looks,” observed Loesch. “I hold the power by living rent-free in your head.”

Watts jab at Loesch really failed to connect because the truth is more and more women are choosing to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense. These women aren’t trying to be Rambo, rather they’re just looking out for themselves and the ones they love.

Just this week, WOWT covered a story about a Nebraska gun range that offers concealed carry classes strictly for women.

“The demand has been absolutely through the roof,” said Yes Ulrich, who helps out students at The Marksman indoor gun range in Waterloo, Nebraska.

To meet the growing demand, she’s adding more classes to the schedule.

“The more the public knows about firearms and firearms safety, the safer I am and the safer my children are,” said Ulrich. Wow, talk about common-sense! I wonder what Watts would say to Ulrich? Or, for that matter, Michelle Woitzel, a mother who recently obtained her concealed carry permit.

“I don’t want to be a victim,” Woitzel told WOWT. “I want to be able to conceal a weapon and be in control of any situation.”

“To be able to have the confidence of carrying a weapon and being able to protect yourself is a great right,” she added.

What Watts doesn’t understand or willfully ignores is that there are millions of mothers out there who want to exercise their right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. It’s not about killing thugs, it’s about protecting their children. It’s about be prepared for all situations. On that note, Watts should seriously reflect on how she would respond if a child predator began assaulting one of her children. If she did, making fun of mothers who carry may not be so amusing.

    Watts is obviously another “BRAIN DEAD LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR A VAGINA”
    Its not a matter of weather we NEED or WANT guns its our RIGHT to legally own what we choose.
    Maybe when Hollyweird elitists and bottom feeding politicians, just to name a few groups– opt to hire “UNARMED” security for themselves and family, then and only then could we have a real discussion about the necessity of firearms ownership .

    “I’m a mom. And just like millions of other women, I dress head-to-toe in black leather and live to shoot ‘thugs’ in the head”

    For moment there, she was kinda hot….. And then it turns out to be just snark.

    Notice how she keeps pointing her fingers (ala make-believe pistols) at the host. Oh Freud, you’d be pleased to know your theory is still presenting itself in the same symbolic way, one hundred years later.

    Watts ‘Demands Action,’ most likely because it the only way a sublimely annoying creature such as herself can get any…

    Watts newest statement: What does any mom need a gun for? YOU don’t need a gun to protect your family! Your personal armed guards are trained to protect you and your children, just like mine do for me! CHECKMATE GUN NUTS!!!!!

    I’m sure that Watts was out protesting for her “women’s rights” this weekend, while she gleefully wants to take away my gun rights. Such is the mindset of the modern liberal: “my rights are more important than your rights”

      Watts does not any political nor actual physical power to rescind gun rights nor steal your property. But disgusting people in Congress as McCain, Schumer, Pelosi and Ryan do along with the US State Dept., FBI and Homeland Security. Focus on those reprobates who actually CAN take your property without just cause and harm you physically and financially.

    I wouldn’t call this a cat fight. I’d call it a pointless, insignificant, ignorant, misguided, delusional, pathetic woman(Watts) attacking another woman(Loesch) who clearly intimidates and out classes her. Hey, Watts!…….Insecure much?!?!?!?!?!?!

    AMERICANISM!!!! NOT Globalism!!!!!

      Watts isn’t a woman. She’s a female. BIG difference!

    • Gomer January 27, 2017, 8:50 am

      This is a classic case of somebody bringing a powder puff to a gun fight.
