Dana Loesch: 'War on Women' Is Being Waged Through Gun Control
According to The Washington Post Election Lab, Republicans now have a 93% chance of taking the Senate.
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, however, insists that Democrats are going to maintain control.
"God bless her," Dana Loesch, author of the new book "Hands Off My Gun: Defeating the Plot to Disarm America," said on "Fox and Friends" this morning.
"I get that as the DNC chairwoman she really needs to be positive. But statistically ... that's not in the cards. We can all do basic math. Republicans are going to take the Senate."
Despite the GOP having momentum heading into Election Day, Loesch agreed with recent comments from Mark Steyn that Democrats are winning the culture war.
"Republicans are competing in a liberal society, a very progressive society, so it's very difficult," she explained.
Loesch also discussed New York State banning guns for 34,500 people deemed mentally unstable under the 2013 NY SAFE Act, which Loesch described as a "terrifying Pandora's box of government regulation" that takes away citizens' Second Amendment rights without due process.
Calling to mind President Obama's 2008 comments during his first presidential campaign, Loesch referred to herself and her family as "bitter clingers". And she highlighted that the anti-gun agenda is a key part of any "war on women" that is going on.
"Firearms are the ultimate equalizer. I am five-six, I am about 125-127. In my mind I'm like six-foot-two, 250 pounds. If I'm unarmed and a man is going to come and do something to me, we can see Lara Croft in the theater but I'm not Lara Croft in real life. Statistically, I will be overtaken. Unless I have that equalizer," she said.
Loesch pointed out that - unlike the right to vote - women have always had the right to bear arms and should resist any attempts by people like Michael Bloomberg to restrict access to firearms.

Dana sat down with Bill Hemmer on "America's Newsroom," weighing in on the Tea Party and the GOP's chances of taking the Senate.
Loesch said she's been encouraged to see Tea Party supporters doing more and more "grassroots" work, rather than just raising awareness about the conservative message.
"Raising awareness is a lazy way of saying 'I'm going to sit at home and talk about issues,'" said Loesch.
She believes the movement is not "monolithic," saying Tea Party members are united on limited government and personal liberty, but a lot feel differently on specific issues.
