Armed Mommy, an anonymous, gun-toting, Denver conservative, has almost 47,000 fans on Facebook. She's been posting her own memes for just a year, developing #tcot clout in the process. Her schtick? She's a hot mom who's ready to shoot and kill anyone who tries to enter her home uninvited. In her cover photo, she's looking out towards the sunset with a toddler on her hip and what looks like an AR-15 slung over her shoulder.
But, guess what, those 47,000 fans are almost all men. What a joke.
Armed Mommy is doing her part to push the idea that ladies love rifles. But a NBC News/Wall Street Journalpoll released in April found that 65 percent of American women want stricter gun laws, compared to 44 percent of men. In September, a National Journal poll found that 71 percent of women think an assault weapons ban would help prevent mass shootings, compared to 44 percent of men. And according to Gallup polling from 2007 to 2012, only 15 percent of women own guns.
And that 15% is almost all women who really live with gun-nut men, women who on their own would not own guns at all.
We covered this pretty well the other day.
