Coalition to Stop Gun Violence VS. Armed Females Of America

I have chosen to compare the following two websites, one of which is an anti-gun website and the other is a pro- gun website. They are: Pro gun: Armed Females Of America. Which is all for guns being used as a type of protection. The other is Anti Gun: Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.

Firstly both these websites are each created by one individual person. I will first talk about the Armed Females of America website.

This website has a female representative for Texas which to me is different from other gun related websites as men see and use guns as a form of defense and weaponry and not as to protect themselves in a harmless way. This first websites point of view is that "They will not compromise with anybody over what they believe is right and what they stand for". They also believe that it is a God given gift to be armed and own a gun. These rights should not be taken lightly.

The second website Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. is completely the opposite, it is run by a male who believes that gun violence and being armed with a gun is not the answer, he says that :" The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence seeks to secure freedom from gun violence through research, strategic engagement and effective policy advocacy." This shows that the website is all about making the US a much calmer and safer country without the use of guns.

I found it quite unusual that it was a male that had bought this issue up, as I thought that owning a gun would be more of a male action than a woman's because it seemed to be more masculine and dominating.

Which is more convincing?
I found the Armed Females of America website to be more convincing because it shows another side to the argument; it isn't just men wanting to own a gun in order to come across as masculine and 'in control' of a situation. This website shows how women want to be able to protect themselves and be in control.
