On Wednesday, Gayle Trotter of the Independent Women's Forum gave some bizarre testimony about how young moms just love AR-15s because they're scary and serve a great purpose when five or six gunmen burst in the house with malevolent intentions.
As it turns out, Trotter has made other statements since the Newtown massacre as well, mostly in support of the NRA's contention that more guards in schools will somehow magically solve the problem.
Her editorial for Fox News chides people for having any objection to armed guards in schools. "Gun-rights opponents have begun scoffing at the notion of armed guards in our children's schools," she writes, and then goes on to say that "doesn't prevent the gun-rights opponent-in-chief from relying on a government-provided security detail to protect his own children."
Yes, well. This is all very easy for Trotter to say, because she doesn't send her six children to public school. No, her children go to to Beauvoir School in Washington DC, where tuition is $31,250 per year, per child. (I hope there's a group discount.) One of the "perks" of attending Beauvoir School? Armed guards patrolling the grounds, evidently.
