The left comes up with this stuff faster than anyone can keep up with them. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the left-wing Cosmopolitan Magazine is pushing an anti-gun narrative under the heading of gunsplaining:
Why You Should Never Date a “Gunsplainer”
We’ve all met mansplainers, but have you ever met a similarly dreadful gunsplainer? He’s the type of guy who will attempt to hit on you by calling you “schnookums” and, like the mansplainer, he will condescend to you about why you’re safer in a world where guns are easier to buy than Sudafed, or how a good guy with a gun is the best antidote to a bad guy with a gun.
He may echo the words of National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, who said in 2013, “The one thing a violent rapist deserves to face is a good woman with a gun.”
Here’s another example:
It’s Time to Talk About What Guns Have to Do With Dating
“So can we talk about your guns?”
You’ve watched pundits and politicos debate the issue. Maybe you’ve joined in the hashtag chorus, whether #NotOneMore or #ProGun. But in order to truly save lives, the conversation has to get intimate. “We need to start talking about gun safety in our relationships — now,” says Rob Valente, vice president of policy for the National Domestic Violence Hotline.

Cosmo: Pro-Gun Arguments Are Just ‘Gunsplaining’
Cosmo likes it’s readers slutty and defenseless. The same publication that features “13 Naughty Sex Games You Need to Try” and “Lost Your Valentine’s Day Underwear? Uber will Deliver a Fresh Pair” is advising women to fear men who own guns, while ignoring women’s ability to arm themselves.
Over the course of three separate articles, the magazine incapable of embarrassment treats the Second Amendment like an embarrassing personal issue and veers into PC buzzword land. A “gunsplainer,” as defined by Cosmo, is, “Someone (usually, although not always, a guy) who buys into myths propagated by the gun lobby. A small-but extreme-subset of gun owners that dominates conversations on gun violence.”
Thank goodness the sophisticates at Cosmo are immune to gun lobby myths. They might contradict the myths they buy from Michael Bloomberg and his Everytown gun-grabbing organization. Cosmo Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles, coincidentally, is chummy with the ban-happy former NYC mayor, and recently fielded a question from CBS This Morning on his presidential ambitions.
Here’s Coles on CBS This Morning:
Does anyone take these people seriously?
