Gun Rights, Women’s Rights

From The Federalist:

On September 3, Lachelle Hudgins wounded a robber who had attempted to steal her purse. While the mainstream media pan the attack as an overreaction to an attempted purse-snatching, Hudgins, who was there, saw it differently.
According to the video recorded by a local ABC reporter, five attackers approached her car in the wee hours of the morning. How was she to know the attack would end with only a stolen purse? “With so many men surrounding her car and trying to get in the car, she did the only thing she could think to do. She reached in her purse for her gun.” Hudgins said of the incident, “I saved my life.”

The Well Armed Woman Removed From Instagram

From Bearing Arms:

“There was no warning and there has been no communication from Instagram at all. We don’t post ANYTHING even close to being inappropriate. My focus is totally on empowering and educating our followers. For them to take down a page focused on women taking responsibility for their own self-protection against violence is a new low.”

Gun Saved Woman When Protection Order Didn’t

From WDRB:

Police say one man is dead after forcing his way into the home of his ex-girlfriend on Saturday night.

Police say there was an active domestic violence order against Decker, but that order had recently been amended to allow Decker to stay in his parent’s home, which was next door to his ex-girlfriend, as long as he did not commit any further acts of violence. Decker was asked by family members, his ex-girlfriend and the courts to stay away from her home and not to have any contact or communication with her.

Time Magazine cover: Aisha

“Our cover image this week is powerful, shocking and disturbing. It is a portrait of Aisha, a shy 18-year-old Afghan woman who was sentenced by a Taliban commander to have her nose and ears cut off for fleeing her abusive in-laws.

Aisha posed for the picture and says she wants the world to see the effect a Taliban resurgence would have on the women of Afghanistan, many of whom have flourished in the past few years.

Her picture is accompanied by a powerful story by our own Aryn Baker on how Afghan women have embraced the freedoms that have come from the defeat of the Taliban — and how they fear a Taliban revival.”
