I presume you are suggesting that women threatened with violence "bring a knife to a gun fight".
Gun control for women exposed to violence is straightforward: grip the weapon firmly with both hands.
The Democrats in Congress might have used "experts" to write what became PPACA, but the "experts" did not conceive and design the political "hand grenade" which has blown up in the Dems faces. Some politician suggested the state/fed distinction regarding subsidies. I know; it was all Bush's fault.
PPACA would have benefited from many fewer instances of: "The Secretary shall...". As bad as the law is, the implementing regulations have been far worse. Hobby Lobby and the Little Sisters of the Poor are but two examples. Perhaps our legislators should have to pass a "No Legislator Left Behind" test before being permitted to vote on any bill.

Please note that our "Beloved Leader", as an Illinois state senator, argued in favor of infanticide in the cases of babies born alive as the result of botched abortions, since it was the "mother's" intent to kill it before it emerged from the birth canal. He took this position despite his background of voting "present" on other important issues. I guess that makes him a "fringe extreme pro-abortion activist".

I just reread Animal Farm. Comrade Napoleon came instantly to mind.
