The video her was aimed at the group Moms Demand Action in an attempt to intimidate them. It features a Florida gun instructor. Jennifer Longdon was intimidated to her face. She was spat upon at an airport after participating in a press conference held by a group called Everytown for Gun Safety. But she couldn’t fight back, as she’s in a wheelchair. She’s been paralyzed since being shot in 2004 by unknown assailants.

As Longdon sat waiting for her flight, a screen in the concourse showed footage of the press conference. A tall, thin man standing nearby stared at Longdon, then back at the screen. Then he walked up to Longdon and spat in her face. No one else blinked…

Longdon is no stranger to such attacks. Last May in her hometown of Phoenix, she helped coordinate a gun buyback program with local police over three weekends. On the first Saturday, a group of men assembled across the street from the church parking lot where Longdon was set up. They shouted about constitutional rights and tyranny, and called people arriving to trade in their guns “sellouts.” (The program netted nearly 2,000 firearms with more than $200,000 in reimbursements.)

Some of them approached Longdon. “You know what was wrong with your shooting?” one said. “They didn’t aim better.”…

After a fundraiser one night during the program, Longdon returned home around 10 p.m., parked her ramp-equipped van and began unloading herself. As she wheeled up to her house, a man stepped out of the shadows. He was dressed in black and had a rifle, “like something out of a commando movie,” Longdon told me. He took aim at her and pulled the trigger. Longdon was hit with a stream of water. “Don’t you wish you had a gun now, bitch?” he scoffed before taking off.

Sadly, this is not an isolated incident, and Longdon isn’t the only woman who’s been treated in this manner. Here’s more.

No responses to Gun Extremists Targeting Women With Spitting, Stalking And Rape Threats

    Why is it that the dregs of humanity are so attracted to guns and guns rights groups? Why can’t be they into something like bug eating or sculpting with turds. Please leave the good people alone. Go inflict your torture somewhere else and build your monuments of disgust in private, nobody sane wants to see you worship your instruments of death. Go away, please.

    The irony is that these sacks of doggie doo are showing the rest of the country why these women are right.

    The standard is set much to low when someone like this can buy a weapon. These idiots don’t have enough decency or intelligence to be allowed to own one. Everyday they show us why it’s time to change who can and cannot own a weapon.

    This demonstrates the mindset of the gun fetishists perfectly and illustrates why this liberal gun owner wants nothing to do with them.

    They rally around a racist freeloading criminal in Nevada and say not a word when a woman in a wheelchair is threatened because she is exercising her first amendment rights.

    It is moments like this when I start to think that maybe repeal of the 2nd amendment is a very good idea.

    I wonder why these liberals claim to be spit on by right wingers yet have no footage even though they are surrounded by the media>

      You assume too much…

      • JEButler May 20th, 2014 at 12:55 pm

        You are correct, I did assume there was an intelligent liberal on this site. Sorry for the mistake. Yet still no answer to the question. At least your not calling names ………yet!!

      tuck in your gut and fly away fool.

        Spoken like a true liberal who cannot answer the simplest question.
