Bob Beckel on guns: When was the last time you heard about a rape on campus?

posted at 2:41 pm on February 20, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via Mediaite, I missed this last night but Twitchy didn’t. After months of “war on women” demagoguery keying off of Akin and Mourdock, I didn’t expect that the left’s big gun-control push might include a contingent of rape minimizers keen on keeping guns out of women’s hands. Then again, I didn’t expect that it would include an impassioned plea by Joe Biden for Americans to go out and buy shotguns either.

It does happen, of course, on campus and off. You may well know someone to whom it happened, assuming you aren’t a victim yourself:

It’s a terrible mistake by gun-rights groups not to emphasize self-defense for women more than they do, I think. Too often when you ask Second Amendment supporters why people need guns, they come back at you with hypotheticals ranging from remote to somewhat less remote but still pretty remote. Threat of the government instituting martial law? Remote. Threat of a home invasion? Not as remote, especially depending upon where you live, but still unlikely. Threat of you, as a man, being attacked by another man? Probably less remote still, but not a major concern. Threat of you, as a woman, being attacked by a man? Distinctly possible if these numbers are accurate. (Which is disputed.) And when a woman’s attacked, it’s likely to involve more than simply having her wallet lifted. I’d go as far as to say that women protecting themselves from sexual assault should be the first plank in any well-considered gun-rights platform. Exit quotation from S.E. Cupp: “Why is it okay for men to tell women how to defend themselves?”

Sorry to hear that. I can’t imagine what you went through. I would much rather it happen to me than a child of mine. I didn’t tell my anyone, so my parents never knew until recently. After it happened, I asked my roommate’s 21 year old boyfriend to do a straw buy of a cheap revolver for me. (I’m glad the internet is anonymous.) He was delighted to go shopping with me. Good thing we did that, because a couple of years later my truck broke down on the highway on the way home from school, and I had to use the gun to scare off a guy who tried to “help” me.

Uggh. I have a son off in college, but if had a daughter, I think I would be tempted to make her live at home until she married. Young girls are just hung out to dry, with virtually no security. At least now they have cell phones when their cars break down.
Why did I have to improvise and break several laws to make myself secure? That’s just not right.

Bob Bechal is, as usual, dumb as $hit.

Let’s take a look at his argument at face value. He is worried that a drunk college kid with a gun will accidentally hurt somebody. OK, so why is the woman who is raped less important?

The libs are always worried about “what if…what if…what if?!” OK, what if a woman is raped? Why is her life any less important than the innocent third party who is accidentally shot?

Both are equally as important. My point is, the libs claim that one life is more important than the other. They’re so worried about the “innocent bystander” but they intentionally ignore the fact that the woman who is raped is just as much as an “innocent bystander” as anybody else yet they don’t give a damn about her.

Bechal’s argument is pointless.

Earth to Beckel:

From just 2 days ago, at the august institution of higher learning where Dear Leader went to “law school”:

Cambridge —

A female undergraduate student reported to the Harvard University Police Department on Monday, Feb. 18, that she was a victim of an assault and battery in the courtyard of Quincy House at approximately 1:35 a.m. The victim stated that while walking through the courtyard she was grabbed by two males who attempted to pull her back towards the building. The suspects did not say anything to the victim. She fought with them and was able to flee the courtyard and entered a nearby residence for safety. The victim was not injured during the incident and officers searching the area could not locate the suspects.

He obviously is a graduate of the Whoopie Goldberg School of Catagorizing Rape.

Between Beckel and the idiot in Colorado who wants girls to blow a whistle or pee on themselves to avoid being raped, the left has reached a new low.

TRUST THE PEOPLE: THE CASE AGAINST GUN CONTROL
by David B. Kopel

From page 3:

In 1966 the police in Orlando, Florida, responded to a rape epidemic by embarking on a highly pUblicized program to train 2,500 women in firearm use. The next year rape fell by 88 percent in Orlando (the only major city to experience a decrease that year); burglary fell by 25 percent. Not one of the 2,500 women actually ended up firing her weapon; the deterrent effect of the pUblicity sufficed. Five years later Orlando’s rape rate was still 13 percent below the pre-program level, whereas the surrounding standard metropolitan area had suffered a 308 percent increase.

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.

“If I had been carrying that night, two other rapes would have been prevented and a young life would have been saved,” Collins said. “All of these are just sentiments that give a false sense of security. In my experience I know that the university that I attended, the University of Nevada-Reno, they didn’t didn’t have any call boxes the night I was attacked. They afterwards installed them but I can tell you that a call box above my head while I was straddled on the parking garage floor being brutally raped wouldn’t have helped me one bit. The safe zone? I was in a safe zone and my attacker didn’t care,” Collins said. “It’s known that I could see the police cruisers less than 50 feet away from me, from where I was being attacked but the moment I saw those cruisers, I knew at the same time that no one was coming for me….they were all off duty. The offices had closed. They weren’t in their cruisers, there was no one there. A whistle wouldn’t have gotten anybody’s attention. It was isolated, it was late at night. It’s really frustrating that I’m supposed to hand over my own protection to a man but they’re not able to guarantee our protection and the comments that this representative made about women not knowing if they’re going to be raped or accidentally shooting the wrong person was extremely offensive because he specifically targeted female students. So, is he saying that all women are unable to make sound decisions in the midst of that, that we should go against our God given gut instinct that something was wrong? I knew something was wrong the moment I was grabbed from behind.”

Red-tape and university policies led to this happening and empowered Biela while punishing Collins.

“I was legislated into being a victim,” Collins said.

The entire interview is worth your time. Please, take the time to watch it and please share it widely. Not surprisingly, CNN’s Piers Morgan denied Collins’ request to come on his show and tell her story.

It’s a terrible mistake by gun-rights groups not to emphasize self-defense for women more than they do, I think.

I teach Women On Target which is an NRA program specifically emphasizing women’s self-defense and true empowerment. I also teach handgun and rifle safety, primarily to women. These are just two examples of not only making the argument, but providing the tools women need for self-defense. I am by no means alone. I was propelled into activism after using a firearm for personal protection. While active in the Second Amendment rights movement I have met countless women who not only believe in their right to self-defense, but speak about it regularly. I know many men also champion the cause of womens’ self-defense. To say that we do not make the argument strongly enough is to have in incomplete picture. Perhaps it is not that the argument is not made, but that it is not heard.

I have no idea why we don’t emphasize the use of guns to defend against rape more. Since this whole push to grab guns started I have been sing the issues as well as others.

A woman being raped has a right to defend herself. A black man being lynched b a bunch of racist has the right to defend themselves. A elderly man walking his wife to the corner store has the right to defend themselves. The one great equalizer isn’t vomiting or running but a firearm in the hands of someone that knows ow to use it. This always shuts up the liberals in a quick way.

Rape on campus is a rampant problem at my school, so much so that the administration has put together a task force to try to come up with solutions. I’ve been tempted to suggest “campus carry” as one such solution. Personally, as I wrote last October, I don’t see much potential for success because of the restrictions that federal law has placed on a school’s ability to prosecute rapes in a proper way.

Beckel survives ANOTHER foot-in-mouth event. How many times does it take for Liberal to actually get their comeuppance?

I too won’t watch “The Five” specifically because of Beckel. You know he can’t believe the things he says are true, but he says them, like the good little Liberal that he is. The man has no honor.

Personally, “If Only One Life Is Saved Because A {Woman| Student|Man||Person} Was Armed” is now my new go-to counter phrase. And then I go “Wait! That DID happen! Repeatedly!”

Beckel needs to be shown the frackin’ door. Liberals keep doing what they do because there are no real consequences for their actions.

Bob Beckel is an ignorant jackass.

I quit watching Fox way back when Bill’s ego got too big. There are a few good sites on the net that I get my news two or three days ahead of the Alphabet media. It really cracks me up when I hear the phrase “Breaking news” that’s two days old.

Not a rape, per se, but hey Boob Beckel (not a typo) – does EVE CARSON count?

And we should all go to the Five’s facebook page and post the links to all these things – Targeted at Boob.

It’s a terrible mistake by gun-rights groups not to emphasize self-defense for women more than they do

I found this video – “Gunny & Glock – Wrong Girl” – to be very persuasive:

I know that guy….he has lowered his price due to the bad economy.

After his taxes went up, he says he’ll off a politician for a bottle of Wild Turkey.

I forgot….I dropped a turd this morning that had more active brain cells in it than Beckel had at birth.

Beckel is on the SHTF target list….just another useless media hack…won’t be missed by anyone.
