Rape-free zones: They’re not just for Occupy Wall Street anymore
Via Ace of Spades HQ: Colorado Lawmaker: Ladies, You Don’t Need a Gun, We Have Rape-Free Zones
“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.”
Now here is what we already know:
A study compiled by the U.S. Department of Justice, noted that where guns or knives are used for protection by potential rape victims, the rape was completed only three percent of the time as opposed to a completion rate of thirty-two percent for rapes where no guns or knives were used by the victim.
Now these imaginary “safe-zones,” do they cut a woman’s chance of being raped by 90% like weapons do? How about call boxes? Whistles? No?
Why is this Democrat advocating alternate behaviors that will lead to more rapes?
Bookworm tears into him quite thoroughly: Dems are troglodytes about women and self-defense, and they’re selling this as a virtue for the next election
