Letter: Women may upend the NRA
First Published May 30 2014 05:52 pm • Last Updated Jun 02 2014 06:02 am

It will be interesting to watch how those who profess an undying devotion to the Constitution (particularly the 2nd amendment) react to those who oppose gun violence. One of the groups advocating for change to the current situation may well be the force that finally tips the scales in a different direction.

Women, who make up a sizable portion of the electorate, are organizing across the nation with a goal to instill sanity, as they define it, into making a safer society. Their logic will come under attack, but in the end, they may prevail.

They may not necessarily hold the same fervor as those toting weapons in public places, but they are endowed with something more powerful than NRA decals stuck to vehicle windows or a politician holding a long rifle at a photo op: they vote. As Bob Dylan noted in 1964, "The times, they are a changin’."
