      Mom defending her children with an assault style rifle with a large capacity mag. Or so Lawrence O'Donnell said on his show tonight.

      All of Princess GunLobby's 14 examples of a women defending herself, her children, or her home were incidents where the women used a pistol or a shotgun. And I think that in only nine of the examples was a gun discharged. Just seeing a non assault style firearm was enough to set the hardened criminals running for the tall grass in most of the cases.
