Yeah, heard this on Rush today.....the left has been pushing the meme that women are constantly being raped on college campuses....it has been shown to be a myth....it does happen but not to the degree the left is pushing in order to attack men......and now Republican, state legislators in several states are saying that women on college campuses should have the right to carry guns to stop the rapes......not what the left wanted.....hopefully they will pass these new laws......guns are the best bet to stop stranger rape...and women should have that option....right?

Or do you lefty anti gunners prefer that women are raped...instead of stopping the rape with a gun?

As a young woman on a college campus, why would you not want to carry a gun?
As an anti-gun loon, why would you want to deny said woman an effective means of defending herself?
You see that woman with the bra holster shot herself dead? See the woman who got shot dead by her 2 year old? Nuff said. I don't think the circumstances of most rapes would allow for a gun defense. Avoiding drugs and alcohol more effective.

Let us know when you get raped. Until then you're opinion is irrelevant.

Avoiding drugs and alcohol more effective.
So now you're blaming the victim? Can't say I'm surprised.

Not blaming, but most the college rape stories seem to start with being drunk or drugged out of her mind. What good is a gun then?

You obviously don't care about the girl, just selling more guns.

Yeah....really ingenius argument brain...in a country of over 320 million people...with over 11.1 million people carrying guns for self defense.....only 6-700 a year are accidentally killed with guns......not a problem....not even close to a problem.....

and 1.6 million people a year on average using guns to stop violent criminal attack and save lives......6-700 accidental gun deaths...again, not a problem.....

If you want to save a lot of lives...ban cars....and pools.......

Tell that to the woman raped 50 feet from the campus police station that was closed for the night...she had a concealed carry permit but wasn't allowed to carry because the campus was a gun free zone....but the rapist didn't have a problem carrying his gun and using it to rape her...........

Yes it is a problem if you are somebody who was told you need to have a gun to be safe and end up killing yourself with it on accident. Keep in mind a gun owner is 3X more likely to shoot and kill an innocent person than a criminal. There is also a good study showing if you carry you are more likely to be shot.

As I have pointed out before your 1.6 million makes no sense. First the surveys have been debunked several times over. Second crime is down about 30% since the last one was taken. And you make it sound like they are all violent crimes, but they are not. Violent crime is just a small percent of all crime. So you really need to stop throwing around numbers that are false.

And it's 6-700 dead. What is there like 20k accidental shootings a year? How many are permanently injured and crippled?

And again...compared to the lives saved and crimes stopped the numbers don't even come close....and it doesn't matter to the individual woman who is raped because you guys kept her from carrying a gun for self defense...why do you want women to be raped?

Here is the woman' story....had she had a gun she would have spared 2 other women from being raped, and saved one of them from being killed......but no......you guys prefer that she be raped than that she use a gun to stop the rape....right?

Rape Survivor A Call Box Above My Head While I Was Being Brutally Raped Wouldn t Have Helped - Katie Pavlich

Amanda Collins is a young rape survivor. While in college in 2007, she was raped 50 feet away from the campus police department office at the University of Nevada-Reno and was lucky to get out alive. Her attacker was James Biela, a serial rapist who raped two other women and murdered another. He attacked her at gun point in a gun free zone. At the time of the attack, Collins was in possession of a concealed weapons permit but was not in possession of her firearm due to university policies prohibiting carrying concealed weapons on campus. She was also a second degree blackbelt at the time and walked to the parking garage with a large group of people. Today, Collins did an interview with NRA News host Cam Edwards to tell her horrific story. She explained why Colorado Democratic Rep. Joe Salazar's comments about call boxes and rape whistles being sufficient self defense for women on campus will only result in more uncessary victims.

You are using numbers over 20 years old. How do you even know? Was the woman who shot and killed herself with the bra holster safer? I've asked you before and you never answer. How man rapes are even defendable with a gun? Many women who get raped are really drunk or high on drugs, a gun is no use to them. So is a woman more likely to accidently shoot herself or save herself from a rape?

Sorry, not true......

The 18 studies performed over 40 years have not been debunked...each time they are duplicated the numbers stay high....

And crime is down....as more Americans carry guns for self defense, over 11.1 million people...and crime and gun accidents are going down, not up....so guns are not the source of the crime problem.....

Actual research shows that in stranger rape, a gun is the most effective weapon to stop the rape....and I guess you think women are asking for it anyway...right? And of all the women raped......there are still only 6-700 accidental gun deaths a year......so carrying a gun is far better than letting women get raped.....

Then tell that to obama....his CDC researched all the available studies in 2013 to the tune of 10 million dollars....they found the rate of self defense with guns was 500,000 to upwards of 3 million.....and obama is as anti gun as you can get,as is the CDC......

Guns are the most effective way to stop rape....

Guns Effective Defense Against Rape


First, a 1989 study (Furby, Journal of Interpersonal Violence) found that both male and female survey respondents judged a gun to be the most effective means that a potential rape victim could use to fend off the assault. Rape "experts" considered it a close second, after eye-gouging.

Second, raw data from the 1979-1985 installments of the Justice Department's annual National Crime Victim Survey show that when a woman resists a stranger rape with a gun, the probability of completion was 0.1 percent and of victim injury 0.0 percent, compared to 31 percent and 40 percent, respectively, for all stranger rapes (Kleck, Social Problems, 1990).

Third, a recent paper (Southwick, Journal of Criminal Justice, 2000) analyzed victim resistance to violent crimes generally, with robbery, aggravated assault and rape considered together. Women who resisted with a gun were 2.5 times more likely to escape without injury than those who did not resist and 4 times more likely to escape uninjured than those who resisted with any means other than a gun. Similarly, their property losses in a robbery were reduced more than six-fold and almost three-fold, respectively, compared to the other categories of resistance strategy.

Fourth, we have two studies in the last 20 years that directly address the outcomes of women who resist attempted rape with a weapon. (Lizotte, Journal of Quantitative Criminology, 1986; Kleck, Social Problems, 1990.) The former concludes, "Further, women who resist rape with a gun or knife dramatically decrease their probability of completion." (Lizotte did not analyze victim injuries apart from the rape itself.) The latter concludes that "resistance with a gun or knife is the most effective form of resistance for preventing completion of a rape"; this is accomplished "without creating any significant additional risk of other injury."

The best conclusion from available scientific data, then, is when avoidance of rape has failed and one must choose between being raped and resisting, a woman's best option is to resist with a gun in her hands.

Here in Illinois....a police officer leaving court was taking his gun out of a locker....shot himself in the leg, at a local gun range during a police training excercise, a female police officer was having trouble with her holster...she holstered her gun, and shot herself in the leg in 3 places....in and out and back in...she almost bled out on the range......soooo...should we ban guns for police....based on the accident rate of police officers and guns?
