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.
