As gun control advocates relaunch their effort to enact legislation restricting gun rights, Regis Giles, the creator and owner of girlsjustwannahaveguns.com
, tells Newsmax TV
that the best way to fight violence against women is to own a gun, not pass more laws.
"A lot of people like to say, why do you need a gun? You're a girl, you shouldn't be at a shooting range, you should be on the beach tanning. I am on the beach tanning, but I also have a firearm with me just in case some idiot tries to come up and attack me," Giles told "MidPoint" host Ed Berliner.
With statistics showing that 1 in 4 women between ages 18 and 24 will be the victim of sexual assault, Giles says her goal is "to change those statistics and make it every 1 in 4 rapists or attacker who dies. I want to see women learning how to defend themselves."
