Certain politicians want to put women in direct combat, but not protect themselves against rapists with firearms...
A Colorado lawmaker and a Wisconsin university are advising women that possible weapons against would-be rapists include ink pens and tears, as reported by The National Review on Feb. 20, 2013.
In the wake of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs advising female students to use their own vomit and/or urine to thwart possible rapists, a slew of other lawmakers and institutions are attempting to convince women that everything from the buddy system to faking a pregnancy are much better alternatives to using a firearm to forestall a possible rapist.
Colorado State Senator Jessie Ulibarri (D) urged women that vice a legal handgun, women should instead resort to using "ballpoint pens" to stab at assailants.
Other examples cited by the National Review include:
- The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh tells girls to “cry or create a scene of emotional or mental instability."
- Colorado State Representative Paul Rosenthal (D) told women to rely on the "buddy system."
- Co-eds enrolled within the Oregon State school system were advised to tell sexual predators they are “sick or pregnant."
Just Don't Shoot The Rapist...
In a rambling and somewhat slurred statement, Vice President Joe Biden flexed his brain muscles when he stated in an online Town Hall meeting that he endorsed the following for dealing with a rapist home invasion: (See video)
"If you want to protect yourself, get a double barrel shotgun.
Have the shells of the 12 gauge shotgun... and I promise you, as I told my wife, we live in an area that's wooded and somewhat secluded... said, 'Jill, if there's ever a problem just walk out on the balcony here... walk out, put that double barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house.'
I promise you, whoever's coming in is not gonna... you're not going to need an AR-15.
It's harder to aim, it's harder to use.
And in fact, you don't need 30 rounds to protect yourself.
Buy a shotgun... buy a shotgun."
