    Honestly I've never seen an article here that called the woman pointing the gun at the crowd a Karen. To me, a Karen is a liberal that feels entitled enough to get in your face and try to enforce their view of the world onto you, and if you resist, she will do something wildly unpredictable like macing you (not the medieval kind, the chemical kind), dousing you with urine, or some other completely inappropriate response to you not seeing the world the way she does.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Indeed, having read posts on here I'm aware of what the US perception of a 'Karen' is. My post was to offer a somewhat skewed, UK view, which is clearly wide of the mark. You can always trust the BBC to get it wrong..

    You're view is limited. Being a "Karen" has nothing to do with political position, it has to do with that sense of self-entitlement. That's non-partisan.

    So. The lady defending her home and life and husband's life is self entitled. That's rich on a gun forum.

    The BBC is about as accurate as a Brown Bess at 150yds. I'll take a Karen over a chicken head baby mama any day. Unless they get in a fight. Then my money is on baby mama. When that weave comes off in your hand you got too start all over.

    The BBC only applies pejorative terms to those that aren't liberal enough for them.

    No, you clearly don't understand what a "Karen" is.

    First of all, "Karen" activities never occur on their own property...that's rather the point of it all. Anyone is entitled to be a self-entitled jackass on their own property.

    The hallmark of a "Karen" is that she's acting a self-entitled jackass on someone else's property.

    Then maybe somebody should explain that to the liberal media.
