Give Women Guns

To remove disparity and inequality I had written that women in Pakistan and India should be given bullets along with ballots.

Let us see how many women are abducted, raped, ill treated then.

This article, inadvertently perhaps, reinforces that thought. ~~~t

Were I to board the subway late at night, around Lincoln Center perhaps, and find it filled with women openly carrying Metropolitan Opera programs and Glock automatics, I’d feel snug and secure. A train packed with armed men would not produce the same comforting sensation. Maybe that’s because men have a disconcerting tendency to shoot people, while women display admirable restraint. Department of Justice figures show that between 1976 and 2005, 91.3 percent of gun homicides were committed by men, 8.7 percent by women.
