Women are more likely to be shot and killed by a criminal than they are to kill the murderer. How shocking. Are women as likely as murderers to be armed? Are they as skilled with a weapon. Did they have advance notice or does the criminal generally get the first shot? If criminals are generally better armed, better skilled and the one imitating the violence does a 80-1 ratio seem surprising? Would women with even fewer firearms improve that statistic or would a better armed better trained female population lower it to 20-1.
That's why Direckshun kept trying to talk about "gun deaths" instead of homicides. It's a bullshit statistic, manufactured to make his statements appear to be valid. It must suck to be a meat puppet for manipulative politicians.
