I was recently accused of being a single issue voter during a heated discussion regarding the 2016 election cycle. Now, the person who slung this accusation at me did so knowing very little about where I stand on any issue besides the Second Amendment. They don’t know the breadth and depth of my political research outside of what they see posted on my public profile page Rebecca Schmoe 1mmagc Mom.
As I began to correct this short-sighted and undereducated individual it occurred to me that in all reality I didn’t need to give them the satisfaction of listing a biography of political leanings. As the Spokesmom for 1mmagc.org, and single mother of three, who holds a full time job outside the home, I have better ways to spend my time than to engage in a battle of opinion with your common under the bridge (in their parents' basement) troll.
Therefore, my short answer to any who would choose to use the phrase “single issue voter” as a derogatory statement against those of us who advocate for gun rights is simply this; What other issues matter if you are not able to defend your life with the most effective and efficient tools available? First and foremost, you must protect the Second so that you may have the opportunity to have an opinion on all other issues which arise.
