Women's Defense League of NH - 2nd Amendment Women Left Out of "Protect All Women" Discussion 

October 15, 2014

Today Gabby Giffords and her group Americans for Responsible Solutions came to New Hampshire to meet with women leaders and discuss guns and domestic violence. They have named their tour “Protect All Women” except Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly have neglected to include all women in their roundtable discussion.

Since the Granite State was just named the “Safest State in America”, the Women’s Defense League believes that Giffords has simply come to a state she doesn’t know to push gun control legislation that New Hampshire doesn’t need or want.

By excluding women leaders who are on the forefront of training women -- researching gun crime and violence and working with legislators on 2nd Amendment issues -- Giffords and her husband show they are one-sided in their efforts and are not interested in addressing the real aspects of domestic violence.

It’s a shame that an organization such as Americans for Responsible Solutions, backed by billionaires with armed body guards, only seeks false solutions for those who wish to create more women victims through gun control rather than discuss honest solutions about how to end domestic violence and truly help women.

Garcia For Congress - Breaking News: Leading Gun Control Group Pledges to Support Rep. Kuster!

Breaking News: Leading Gun Control Group Pledges to Support Rep. Kuster!

A leading gun control group, Americans for Responsible Solutions, just announced that they will spend millions of dollars in New Hampshire to support Rep. Ann Kuster in the coming election.  These out-of-state interests will likely spend their millions on negative attack ads against Marilinda.  They are looking to raise at least $20 million for this election cycle, and promise to “provide some cover for members of Congress who voted for gun control measures.”

Just recently the Union Leader commented on Ann Kuster’s record on guns rights, saying “Gun owners, make no mistake, if Annie Kuster remains in Congress, she is going after your guns.”

In contrast to Kuster’s deplorable record on gun owners’ rights, Marilinda has been working tirelessly to defend the 2nd amendment and protect the rights of gun owners in New Hampshire and throughout America. She has received an “A” rating from the NRA during her four terms in the New Hampshire State Legislature, and promises to bring that same commitment to the 2nd Amendment to Washington.  

But Marilinda’s messages of personal freedoms and liberties will be silenced if Rep. Kuster’s Washington D.C. friends and their negative ad campaign have anything to say about it.

We can’t allow that to happen.  We must prepare for this oncoming barrage of attack ads. Please consider helping us with a donation of just $5 or more.
