Colorado Democrat Would Prefer That Potential Rape Victims Not Arm Themselves


It’s a war on women:

From Red State:

Chill, women, says Colorado Democrat Rep. Joe Salazar. While arguing for the disarmament of college students, Salazar says that even if women feel like they’re going to be raped, they may not, so who needs a firearm for protection? From Revealing Politics:

“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop around at somebody.”

This is an interesting story to break as we learn that Newtown school shooter Adam Lanza probably picked the venue for his rampage specifically because it was a “gun free zone” filled with easy targets. Whatever else you want to say about criminals, most of them aren’t stupid, and will change their behavior if they know their potential prey might be armed and able to fight back.

Meanwhile, women are the fastest growing demographic among gun owners. That’s a wonderful development.

    I think what the Democrat was saying is that they should just try to enjoy it. The Conservative/Republican position is that they should shoot the SOB in the nards so he doesn’t rape the gunowner AND so that he doesn’t rape again.

      True as rain , I am so tired of rape being a crime that can be accepted by some nut jobs and at the same time a terrible crime that cannot be erased from a woman’s mind for that matter a boy or a young mans mind . next to murder it is the most heinous crime .

    Then he has more in common with the rapers than the victims I guess. Oops, look like he apologized though.

    In the 70’s, Clayton Williams, who was running for Governor, said “If rape is inevitable, just lie back and enjoy it…..” He wasn’t elected…….Joe Salazar has the same retard mentality ala Hank Johnson regarding Guam and tipping over. Colorado is full of these idiots….. all Democratic House, all Democratic Senate and a Democratic Governor….. Colorado is both an “open” carry and “conceal” carry State at the present time and we value our right to bear arms but there are those “do-gooders” that want to remove that right in the interest of getting their fifteen minutes of fame…….

    He apologized but he still thinks like that so let him put the whistle were the sun does not shine and I am so tired of the elites telling us what we need .

    • Hellboy

      He almost apologized…….. He said “IF” he offended anyone, then he is sorry. He probably offended 98% of the people, so that counts??? He wants call boxes and safe zones instead of weapons. This is the REAL war on women from this cretin and his kind…….

        Great he says that women can’t be trusted to defend themselves against racists and then did the phony apology thing as if it isn’t offensive to everyone who isn’t a democrat politician.

        • banjo kid

      • banjo kid

    They say a firearm is the great equalizer, because it allows even the most frail and vulnerable among us to stand against the strong and violent.

    Well, so much for the Democrat mantra of “equality”

  • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

    Are we supposed to be alarmed that somebody doesn’t want a paranoid person shooting innocent people with guns??? LOL.

    Rob, you’re such a child.
