Is there something in the water out there in Colorado? Is it the altitude? Last Friday, Rep. Joe Salazar moronically suggested that women are too emotional to be trusted with guns for self-defense and recommended protection like whistles and call boxes to potential rape victims. As it turns out, Salazar isn’t the only Colorado Democrat guilty of speaking while stupid. At that same debate, Rep. Paul Rosenthal proposed some grade-A, surefire alternatives to shooting a rapist:

What’ve you got to worry about, ladies? If you’re too scared to vomit on yourself or get your period, you can quickly learn a martial art or just get yourself a buddy!

And when you and your buddy are through defending each other, you can tweet him your thanks.

Heaven forbid a woman choose to arm herself as protection from an armed assailant.

Unbelievable.

    This one is at least suggesting pepper spray, learning self defense, and stun guns. Nothing wrong with that.

    • KansasGirl

      But if the “stun guns” are in the hands of the bible-thumping, bitter-clinger religious right, then what?

            I’m all for women arming themselves, but unloading a can of pepper spray on a rapist’s junk does have some merit to it .

      Colorado Democrats: Instead of guns, women should “learn to fight like that River Tam chick on Firefly.”

        I loves me some Firefly, but the fight scenes were *so* over-choreographed…

        Of course, River did use a gun on people as well.

      Not many things in this world more attractive than a woman with a gun that knows how to use it. One if which is two women with guns that know how to use them.

    Yeah, bring a buddy, and if you’re lucky you’ll be the one to escape to call the cops while your friend is brutally raped. If you’re not lucky though……

    • 1SkepticalChick

      While your attacker is going “eeny, meenie, miney, moe” just keep interrupting so he’ll have to start over. Maybe your friend can find a call box quickly.

        Nah, that will just tick him off and he’ll start killing ppl instead of raping them…dead men tell no tales and never do harm again.

    While not a campus murder, the “buddy system” didn’t stop this POS from RAPING, TORTURING & MURDERING three women. ==> http://www.crimelife.com/killers/stayner.html

      At the University of Florida in August 1990, the buddy system failed against the Gainesville Ripper. During one of his attacks, he killed an unarmed male friend who was staying in the apartment of one of his victims.

    Apparently, having a “buddy” like Kathy Griffin is a better deterrent/repellent than loading your drawers.

    Actually, this buddy thing is a good idea.
    With two women shooting rapists, they can skip the ambulance and just call the coroner.

  • aegean1

    If they manage to ban guns, I wouldn’t be surprised if they started banning tasers next. Then martial arts. Then confrontational eye contact.

    • devan95

      Eye contact already is…it’s called sexual harassment.

    I find it insane that men expect women to take classes to learn how to not be raped. I am a full time student AND worker. When the flying hell am I going to be able to take judo classes?

    I know! We draw “safe circles” every 50 feet and a woman can run there and can’t be touched. What? That only works for children and liberals? Nevermind.

  • Zebra Dun

    These are the same democrats that say women can be infantrymen and fight battles with……….guns.

    Who voted for these clown’s? Women?

  • Zebra Dun

    The saddest part is these men’s women and girls most likely have security details who are armed 24/7 something the rest of us peasants cannot afford.

  • Ch53dVet

    Mr. Salazar needs to test his advise. I propose he be put into a rough enviroment (prison shower) and test his theory with a whistle and ballpoint pen in his pocket, let us know if that peeing and vomiting thing decreased or increased your attackers aggression.
