You might have heard that the Second Amendment is under attack in the state of Colorado, where Democrats have introduced several new gun control bills. What you may not have heard, is the comments made by Colorado Representative Joe Salazar on women, guns and rape.
While debating the need for guns on College campuses, Rep. Salazar stuck his entire foot in his mouth, all the way up to the kneecap, and then kept pushing. He does not think that guns on campus are a good idea, nor does he think that women should use guns to fend off a rapist. He had the following to say:
Itâ€™s why we have call boxes, itâ€™s why we have safe zones, itâ€™s why we have the [rape] whistles. Because you just donâ€™t know who youâ€™re gonna be shooting at…
And you donâ€™t know if you feel like youâ€™re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someoneâ€™s been following you around or if you feel like youâ€™re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop â€” pop a round at somebody.
Now I’m by no means an expert on the topic, so take this for what it’s worth, but I think just the opposite of Rep. Salazar. I think call boxes, safe zones, and rape whistles are a joke. Maybe those things are effective and I’m just totally ignorant here, but here’s what I think would be more effective: a woman legally carrying a concealed weapon that she is trained to use, loaded with 147 grains of rape whistle.
Front sight upper center mass, press until you see daylight.
When my daughter is old enough, that’s what I’m going to recommend to her. Unless of course blasters have been invented by then.
Watch part of the stupidity here.
Of course, if Rep. Salazar was a Republican, there would be outrage in the mainstream media, and women’s rights groups would be calling for him to step down. Anyone think that will happen this time around?
