RICHMOND, Va. — Calling it a “grievous omission” and “a clear dismissal of the fundamental differences between genders,” Sen. Amanda Chase (R-11) decried the proposed language of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) for making no mention of the right to keep and bear arms.

“God made men and women different,” Chase said. “And no mortal law can change the fact that men are bigger, stronger, faster, and better meat harvesters than women. That’s why we need guns.”
Chase, who made headlines in recent years with controversial displays and statements in support of gun rights, asserted that women who conduct their lives unarmed are naive and “just begging to be left behind in society.”
“I don’t care if you’re trying to protect yourself or if you’re gunning for a promotion,” Chase continued. “You need to be packing heat everywhere you go if you want to get ahead in this world.”
Chase was careful to include a caveat to all married women that the Bible instructs them to be subservient to their husbands.
“It’s really all about compromise, finding a balance,” Chase said. “We need to be mindful of our place as women, but also be ready to shoot our way out of it if need be. And the fact that the ERA, as written, doesn’t take this into account is shamefully ignorant.”
