CO Democrat: Even if you feel like you might get raped, you may not, so no guns for you

posted at 9:31 pm on February 18, 2013 by Mary Katharine Ham

Downplaying the threat of rape? Check. Questioning the ability of grown, sentient women to perceive that threat? Check. A man in a position of power presuming to know what’s best for women he knows nothing about? Check. Limiting women’s choices by law in potentially life-threatening situations? Check. Six months ago, this was known as the frightful patriarchy. Now, it’s just another member of the Party of Women doing his part for the good work of gun control.

In arguing for the disarmament of college students in Colorado this week, state Rep. Joe Salazar suggested a novel method of self-defense for women on campus— just chill, ladies.

“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.”

Well, after all, you might not get raped. In Salazar’s world, not only are women incapable of defending themselves against a physical threat, but they are incapable of even identifying a physical threat, and should therefore be deprived of the ability to try. Empowerment! I guess if you are raped, there’s this…safe zone. Look, colleges are welcome to establish safe zones (though criminals are notoriously unobservant of such signage), call boxes, lighted paths, and whistles to help prevent campus attacks. I have benefited from at least a few of these tools, and begrudge no one their use. But I would also like women who choose to arm themselves, in the event that safe zones, call boxes, lights, and whistles don’t work, to retain the right to their chosen tool of prevention.

Revealing Politics has background on the bill in question:

House Bill 13-1226 to prohibit the lawful concealed carry on Colorado college campuses passed the Colorado House of Representatives this morning. Many of the arguments Democrats used to justify the bill included the alcohol and drug use common on campuses coupled with the age and immaturity of average college students. These arguments didn’t resonate with many Republican lawmakers and opponents of the bill who cited Colorado’s intensive training process for obtaining a concealed carry permit and the state’s requirement that permit-holders be 21 years of age, as rebuttal.

Salazar has apologized for revealing how incapable he believes women are. (Notice the framing of the story in local media is not about his comments, but about conservatives objecting to them.)

“I’m sorry if I offended anyone. That was absolutely not my intention,” Salazar said. “We were having a public policy debate on whether or not guns makes people safer on campus. I don’t believe they do. That was the point I was trying to make. If anyone thinks I’m not sensitive to the dangers women face, they’re wrong. “I am a husband and father of two beautiful girls, and I’ve spent the last decade defending women’s rights as a civil rights attorney. Again, I’m deeply sorry if I offended anyone with my comments.”

Charles Cooke notes the University of Colorado’s advice for women under attack. This would be the liberal-sanctioned method of self-defense if the Rep. Salazar method of hoping real hard doesn’t pan out. Passive resistance, bare feet, and your period:

Be realistic about your ability to protect yourself.

Your instinct may be to scream, go ahead! It may startle your attacker and give you an opportunity to run away.

Kick off your shoes if you have time and can’t run in them.

Don’t take time to look back; just get away.

If your life is in danger, passive resistance may be your best defense.

Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating.

Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone.

Yelling, hitting or biting may give you a chance to escape, do it!

Understand that some actions on your part might lead to more harm.

Remember, every emergency situation is different. Only you can decide which action is most appropriate.

“Only you can decide which action is most appropriate.” That is, unless you’d like to use a projectile more potent than vomit, in which case, settle down little missy. You can’t be trusted.

In other “common sense” gun control news, a Washington state bill obliterates the Fourth Amendment for gun owners. Oops:

It seemed in recent weeks lawmakers might be headed toward some common-sense regulation of gun sales. But then last week they went too far. By mistake, they claim. But still too far.

“They always say, we’ll never go house to house to take your guns away. But then you see this, and you have to wonder.”

That’s no gun-rights absolutist talking, but Lance Palmer, a Seattle trial lawyer and self-described liberal who brought the troubling Senate Bill 5737 to my attention. It’s the long-awaited assault-weapons ban, introduced last week by three Seattle Democrats.

Responding to the Newtown school massacre, the bill would ban the sale of semi-automatic weapons that use detachable ammunition magazines. Clips that contain more than 10 rounds would be illegal.

But then, with respect to the thousands of weapons like that already owned by Washington residents, the bill says this:

“In order to continue to possess an assault weapon that was legally possessed on the effective date of this section, the person possessing shall … safely and securely store the assault weapon. The sheriff of the county may, no more than once per year, conduct an inspection to ensure compliance with this subsection.”

In other words, come into homes without a warrant to poke around. Failure to comply could get you up to a year in jail.

When the sheriff shows up, try vomiting or urinating.

I really don’t understand the world view some of these liberals have.

Vomiting, urinating, and screaming are acceptable forms of self defense but carrying a firearm isn’t?

These people openly admit that college campuses are rampant with drug and alcohol use, so they shouldn’t allow guns.

Little do they know that college students will continue to carry on campus despite the rules.

Truth be told you don’t really need them for a modern gun unless it’s a rimfire or some falling-block rifles, then they are mandatory. But since guns are all about good, consistent handling practices you don’t want to get into the habit of dry firing them and then doing so with a rimfire that isn’t snap-capped.

So, 6 of 1 and a half dozen of the other.

Funny, that #%^*fool Colorado politician’s comments sound remarkably similar to a former Texas gubernatorial candidate who infamously made a comment to reporters around a campfire to the effect, “it’s like rape, sometimes it’s inevitable, so you may as well sit back and enjoy it”. Funny thing, that candidate was resoundingly defeated, mostly because of the outrage that comment caused and the media frenzy in making sure that everybody and their brother and sister heard about the comment, multiple times, every hour on the hour. Of course, that candidate was a Republican, so of course the press was absolutely committed to his defeat. In this case, the press is on the democrat’s payroll, so this will, at most, get a peripheral mention on the midnight news. All the talk shows will cover it, but that is just preaching to the choir.

I ruined a S&W .22 escort dry-firing. Broke a pin in a Savage 110.
Even in a revolver, done too much you may not hurt the gun severely, but you cause the hammer to fall more deeply quicker. Punctured primers. Without the impact with a primer or snapcap done too much you flatten out the landing area quicker. Usually those two surfaces contact softly. The hammer never slams that surface full force.

We had a couple of revolvers in our shop that were landed out and punched through primers. Face full of blowback.

“Shall not be infringed” needs no explanation by SCOTUS.
Any woman in CO should carry, and when attacked, shoot the bastard.
As many times as necessary to kill.
No testimony from the “victim”.

“In order to continue to possess an assault weapon that was legally possessed on the effective date of this section, the person possessing shall … safely and securely store the assault weapon. The sheriff of the county may, no more than once per year, conduct an inspection to ensure compliance with this subsection.”

In other words, come into homes without a warrant to poke around. Failure to comply could get you up to a year in jail.

And this was what I was warning against in the Dorner threads and everyone was on my case about. No worries though, since the cops are so trustworthy and all.

What could possibly go wrong?

oh yes, ‘necks, everyone is out to rape your wal-mart electronic cart-riding fattie wives just like armies of black panthers are out to invade your “Hoarders”-style homes which is why you need AR-15′s, right?

you people are paranoid idiots and suckers for the gun manufacturers who are lining their pockets off you rubes at the expense of Sandy Hook, Aurora, etc…

Azzwhole, I’m 5’2, around 120, and don’t drive. I walk EVERYWHERE. I walk only during light hours and stick primarily to main drags still, I’ve had a few occasions recently where ‘gentlemen’ have invited me into their cars for a ride. My final paperwork for my TX CHL goes into the mail tomorrow. I hope to hell I never have to use my weapon,but if it ever comes to that, I’ll be ready. My lefty women get off on being victims. I REFUSE to be a victim!

annoyinglittletwerp on February 19, 2013 at 12:07 AM

Remind me again about WHO is conducting that “war on women”.
Guess the libs feel that, since they’re providing women with FREE birth control, that whole thing about “rape” should not be of any concern. After all, it’s not as though there will be any consequences.

Just ask the Kenndeys.

Way late to the party. Timing on these things is crucial…I suppose your girlfriend could tell us all about that other timing problem you have.

“Girlfriend”?

I’m pretty sure that liveasaslaveanddie is more his type.

Of course, he’d still have that ‘timing’ thing going on.

DBear on February 18, 2013 at 11:58 PM

First, you’re a racist of the first order. You are hand’s down the most ignorant bigot posting on Hot Air. Second, ask yourself this question you narrow-minded hate filled piece of dog squeeze. What else besides the in-your-face animosity supplied by you Chris Dorner cheering leftist would any sane person need to feel uncomfortable about giving up their weapons?

I don’t do it much but I’m forwarding your comment to the mods. You need to be banned. Any equivalent comment in sterotypes directed at minorities oin this site would be a sure banning.

DBear, why don’t you go back to sucking on Uncle Sugar’s tit where you belong? You’re smarter than the average libtard and understand what’s going to happen when the welfare gravy train stops dead in its tracks, but you can’t bring yourself to admit that the statist policies of the Donks are leading us all to ruin. What an ignorant ass.

First of all, WHAAAAA! cry me a river, snitch. Apparently you have never been on any of the Trayvon Martin or Obama cell-phone lady threads, but of course you have, you are just playing dumb in order to get me banned, quite the big man aren’t you! oh wait, of course you aren’t that’s why you need such a big gun I’m sure!

I guess this Democrat wants to create “Free Rape Zones” for his friends. You know, to make it easier for his fellow Democrats.

Your comments have always been worse. You’re a bigot. A hate filled bigot. The left owns it though so be proud. I’ll tell you what though. We’ll have a bigot off. I’ll match you comment for comment, racist names directed at whites compared to what you can find directed against minorities here on Hot Air.

Game?

WryTrvllr on February 19, 2013 at 1:26 AM

So just relax and enjoy the rape? Is that his advice?

Well, Democrats have always preferred rapists. Look how much they loved Clinton. But I don’t mean to suggest that most Democrats are rapists; most would rather be the victim.
