And I don’t mean that in a good way, folks. Her latest video for the National Rifle Association was released yesterday, which turned out to be not a moment too soon, as an unhinged person threatened to assault her over Twitter. This person later called her and again left threatening messages, which prompted a phone call to the police. Yet, whoever this person is—I don’t suggest messing with anyone who is trained with firearms. Things will turn out poorly.
Here's a message to every rapist, domestic abuser, violent criminal thug, and every other monster who preys upon women.
Maybe you've heard the stories about millions of us flocking to gun stores and gun ranges for the first time, the second time and the 100th time.
Here's what that means for despicable cowards like you: Your life expectancy just got shorter. Because there's a very good chance your next target will be armed, trained and ready to exercise her right to choose her life over yours.
This is what real empowerment looks like—millions of American moms, grandmothers and professional women, taking our lives and our families' lives into our own capable hands.
Our friends at Twitchy captured the insanity, where Loesch also gave advice as to how to handle oneself in these rather unsettling and potentially dangerous situations. Yet, speaking in generalities, if you threaten a known gun owner with a carry permit—you’re insane. I’m leaving out the whole social media harassment, that’s also absurd, but one that conservative women experience often.
Yes I already forwarded to authorities and reported to Twitter. Rule 1: Always create a paper trail when dealing with potential criminals.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 12, 2016
Rule 2: Carry. I’m always armed, aware, and am trained. I will see you before you see me.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 12, 2016
Rule 3: Don’t start nothing, won’t be nothing. Use full legal force against people who threaten to kill/assault/harm you.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 12, 2016
Be aware — the guy on Twitter just called me and threatened to come to my house. I’m calling the police.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 12, 2016
“You’re going to learn your lesson,” he threatened.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 12, 2016
Police are at my house. Man just literally called while the officers are in my house. Officer answered my phone.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 12, 2016
2/2 We are going to track him down. This won't be over until he's ID'd and convicted.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 12, 2016
