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?”

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

No surprise coming from the same liberal mindsets that think the best way for a woman to protect herself from a rapist is to blow a whistle and yell ” I’m on my period!!!!”

…….liberals are absolutely super glued to stupid.

Bob Beckel is nothing but a left-wing hack who has outlived his purpose in life. And that purpose was that he serves no purpose.

Te same people who say woman are rational enough to decide whether or not to a Orr their baby are at the same time said to be too irrational to arm themselves. This chart blows a hole directly through the leftists gun grabbers narrative. It’s not a of choice, it’s about absolute control.

Not long ago date rape at colleges was so huge an issue that the feminists needed to Do Something(TM).

How many colleges bury reported incidents of rape to protect the school’s reputation? The only way news might get out is if the victim reports to regular law enforcement. I’m also certain Beckel wouldn’t be talking like this if the Duke rape case hadn’t been a lie.

How about the Duke fiasco?? That was really pushed ad absurdum by libruls like Bechel. Then, of course there were all those nurses in chicago in the 60′s. Didn’t bundy or dhalmer do some of that stuff. Bechel, like ALL libruls has a very weak and selective memory, unless he is told to remember something by his COMINTERN handlers.

I’m disgusted that pro-choice apparently does not include the choice to exercise one’s civil rights under the Second Amendment. Protecting one’s woman parts from pregnancy isn’t even a real right but the left insists we do that for free. Protecting one’s woman parts from rape with a firearm…… Not so fast there missy!

Uhhh – Bobby boy – rapes happen ALL THE TIME on college campuses. Guess what – they even happen at the military academies where you should be able to trust everyone else there (and which are all gun free zones).

How about the 2 women in New York, called NYPD’s finest when they heard someone trying to force their front door. The cops arrived, never left their car and noted on their log “Quiet on arrival”, then left. Over the next several hours, both women were repeatedly raped and savagely beaten.

But Fat Mike believes they don’t need a gun. Help is as close as 911.

Well of course – who would have guessed that all it took to eliminate rape was to draw some circles on the ground and declare the circle as a “safe zone” that the victim could run to while blowing a whistle. All that much better if she pees her pants while standing in teh “safe zone”.

Even though my wife actually went to UCCS (the source of that ridiculous “how to prevent rape” advice pamphlet, she has a better idea – empty the 30 round mag of her Draco AK pistol into the scumbag.

Like liberals wouldn’t pull out all the stops to prevent the execution. Their flimsiest excuse would be the criminal claimed ‘consensual sex’, so he might be telling the truth and therefor shouldn’t be fried.

But if a woman uses and ‘illegal’ gun to defend herself, the libs would demand the stiffest of penalties with no chance of parole.

We know how this goes from among the Left. That’s how we get dumbsh*t comments like from Beckel and the LA police chief who said that guns are not defensive weapons.

In 2010, 92,695 crimes were reported to police on the college and university campuses that report to the Uniform Crime Report; 97.1 percent were property crimes, and 2.9 percent violent crimes.1

Of the violent crimes reported on college campuses, 1,425 (53.2 percent) were aggravated assaults, 772 (28.8 percent) were robberies, 485 (18.1 percent) were forcible rapes, and 4 (0.15 percent) were murder or non-negligent manslaughter.2

Theft was the most prevalent form of property crime on college and university campuses, with 77,441 incidents overall (accounting for 86.03 percent of property crime), followed by 10,680 burglaries (11.9 percent), 1,897 motor vehicle thefts (2.1 percent), and 306 incidents of arson (0.34 percent).3

In 2006, an estimated 673,000 (11.5 percent) of nearly 6 million women attending American colleges were raped, and 12 percent of rapes of college women were reported to law enforcement.4

In 2006 at two large, public universities, 13.7 percent of undergraduate women were victims of at least one completed sexual assault since entering college; 4.7 percent were victims of forced sexual assault; 7.8 percent were sexually assaulted while they were incapacitated due to voluntary use of alcohol or drugs; and 0.6 percent were sexually assaulted after being given a drug without their knowledge.5

This is sickening. According to this bio he is divorced with a son born in 1993 and a daughter born in 1996 so his son is probably in college and his daughter is about to be entering one. I wonder if he ever sees his daughter. I wonder what she thinks of her father’s words.

We’re watching in real-time how the Left forms and stampedes a society-altering narrative and how the impotent and derelict GOP collapses or hides before the onslaught. Look closely and you’ll be able to anatomize first-hand how you lost a Constitutional right.

The Left is in the process of socially contaminating guns and gun owners and driving aggressive and nonsensical anti-gun legislation with brute narrative force and totality. The Right has no response. Certainly nothing close to the concerted fury and monotony of the Left. A few national politicians such as Ted Cruz have spoken up — that’s it. Not coincidentally, Cruz is being singled out himself as political typhoid. The GOP leadership wants no part of any of it, has no intention of confronting this narrative beast.

And so it goes, our liberties and our world.

JFKY on February 20, 2013 at 3:34 PM

The Leftists didn’t create the ‘war on women’ meme to just scare them away from Republicans.

It is what the Left wants to do to women through fear, promulgating dependency and helplessness, and denying that their actual concerns are based in reality. Better wake up if you got double X in the genes: you got to do what you want to the uterus, but the rest of the body, including the brain, went to Obamacare and the Left. Watch the verbiage from the Left over the next few years and it will be targeted directly at women as merely walking uterii. Just like Fluke.

Colorado. No she doesn’t NEED it – and she’s a librarian – but as I said she’s a redhead, so she now wants all the things the Dems are trying to say she can’t have. Initially she wasn’t even so sure she wanted me to buy an AR awhile back, but when the Dems started getting more pushy about their gun control ideas, she’s the one who decided she wanted an AK of some sort. I got a chance at the Draco from a local gun dealer when someone’s background check failed, so I grabbed it – and since the AK was her idea, she’s declared it’s hers.

In truth – this whole concealed carry of the Draco is really kind of a running family joke. We’re all (me, my wife, our sons, and my father-in-law) are all getting our concealed carry permits, and she started talking about carrying the Draco under her jacket. We’ve all been joking about it ever since. It also goes well with librarian jokes about “pay your fine NOW or else…”.

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.

The likelihood for each of your above hypothetical scenarios is becoming less and less remote the more that the idiots in charge keep ensuring the deterioration of our economy. The likelihood increases exponentially if the anti-gun set have their way with their unconstitutional and highly unwise gun-people-control attempts.

That said, I agree wholeheartedly with your main thesis in this piece.

Speaking of Uncle Joe Biden and shotguns, has he had any official comment on the rampage in California that left four people dead, including the gunman?

Weapon of choice? Shotgun.

Luckily I saw your second post before I asked about your first post – whether I missed a sarc tag. LOL. Gotcha.

I think my 3:35 post answered your questions.

Bob Beckel is one of the most vile leftist bullies outside of MSNBC and the White House..

I keep telling his decent brother Graham that fratricide would be a public service, not a sin.

LegendHasIt on February 20, 2013 at 3:42 PM

1) Why does your wife even need such a weapon of war?
2) What if she just gets confused, and only thinks she being raped, and she gooes pop-pop-pop//pop(29)-pop(30) by mistake, eh? Because you know grrrlz they get easily flustered.
3) Why she would chose her safety over another person’s LIFE, what’s wrong with her? You all probably voted for the Other Fellow, didn’t you?

JFKY on February 20, 2013 at 3:31 PM

She’s a redhead. She wants whatever she damwell wants – and tuff noogies if you don’t like it.

Apparently, Bob is so firmly entrenched in the Big Media bubble (just like his head is firmly entrenched in his fat ass) that he thinks if something isn’t getting 24/7 mileage on the networks it didn’t happen.

CurtZHP on February 20, 2013 at 3:44 PM

When was the last time you heard of a woman with a gun getting raped?

Wyznowski on February 20, 2013 at 3:44 PM

Damn. I’m going to make a tee shirt with that on it.

Try badideatshirts.com – they advertise on these sites.
They probably already have it – or something close to it.

How soon before Obama wants to use Sharia law when it comes to rape???

redguy on February 20, 2013 at 3:46 PM

Police: Why did you rape that college co-ed on campus…

Rapist: Because that’s where the young chicks hang out.

Rapist: And it’s a gun free zone. And the libtard college girls will pee on you – that costs extra with hookers…..

And armed, too.

JFKY on February 20, 2013 at 3:52 PM

Right – so she can make sure she will get whatever she wants.

Stop it. You’re going to send a tingle up lester’s leg.

Ditto. My thought almost verbatim.

“It is understandable that the perspectives of men and women on safety are so different–men and women live in different worlds…at core, men are afraid women will laugh at them, while at core, women are afraid men will kill them.”

― Gavin de Becker, The Gift of Fear: Survival Signals That Protect Us from Violence

This is an excellent book, BTW.

TeleL on February 20, 2013 at 3:59 PM

Concerning college rapes: please, all you young, foolish women – put down the booze! Stop impairing your ability to make safe, rational decisions.

mrsknightley on February 20, 2013 at 3:12 PM

Wise advice.

lucyvanpelt on February 20, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Ironically I just got an email from campus stating there was another reported attempted assault on campus today at 10:00 am. Of course they encourage you to use the blue on campus emergency phones.

maables on February 20, 2013 at 4:00 PM

This sounds an awful lot like Beckel distinguishing degrees of rape–i.e. “rape, rape” (Whoopi Goldberg on Roman Polanski) or “legitimate rape” (Todd Akin)

Conservative in NOVA on February 20, 2013 at 4:04 PM

I was attacked just off campus when I was in college. That’s what made me a gun rights activist.

Beckel needs to FOADIAF.

Anyone who is anti-gun rights is pro-rape.

That is all.

Learn how to grip and shoot a gun like a gansta:

Matt Steele Outdoors (3) Shooting Grip Essentials

Progs give ganstas a pass on owning guns so, obviously, we all need to learn to grip our guns like them and they’ll leave us alone.

Resist We Much on February 20, 2013 at 4:15 PM

She’s still trying to figure out a way to concealed carry the thing. I don’t think they make holsters for it….

dentarthurdent on February 20, 2013 at 3:17 PM

You might try Adam’s Holsters. He’d probably do a custom number for her.

My daughter twenty years ago when she was a freshman. Makes a father crazy for a while after leaving the emergency truma center. Luckily, I couldn’t find him and got my head back on straight. Could have ended worse.

Solaratov on February 20, 2013 at 4:17 PM

Maybe, but I don’t think even a custom holster will work.
I’m thinking more about a sling of some sort, but that will require drilling as the Draco has no attachment point on the back end of the receiver.
