    What if someone raped him, the criminal code has a different " element of the crime" definition but the end result is same. He has no clue how rape affects a woman. Sickening!!!!!!

    If the MSM was non biased this would be on the cable channels every hour and a Democrat with an anti-woman agenda with demands for Obama and other Dems to apologize or kick men like him out of the party. Will not hear a peep.

    My university had problems with rapes in the campus area in the years I was attending. The solution was to add more of the emergency hot-line call stations around the campus. There were only a few of them sprinkled around, with hundreds of yards of dark, shadowy areas between them. I guess that's fine if you can convince the rapist to only attack you near a phone, then wait for the cops to show up.

    This was also the same campus where a nut-job professor pulled a gun in a staff meeting and shot several people execution-style. I guess she didn't get the memo that it was a gun-free campus.

    Why would anyone want to talk on the phone while they're getting raped?

    Didn't you know? When you call 911, the bad guy has to stop whatever he's doing and wait for the cops to show up! ;)

    Salazar is......um.........special. Seriously, after hearing him at the committee hearings, I really do think he's a little below certain chart lines. Useful idiot, basically; a good sacrificial lamb.

    Watching these people in action, I think the theory mentioned in another thread about cosmic intelligence rays and gold being impervious to them may have some merit.

    I guess the phone things are intended as a deterrent rather than an actual means to prevent/halt an attack.
    Deterrents are all well and good, but I think that a better one would be posters reminding potential rapists that concealed carry was permitted and encouraged on campus.

    I live in Louisiana, I would say give them half a sporting chance, like maybe that double barrel 12 GA then let them loose in Angola.

    I wonder why they didn't include "avoid dressing provocatively or interacting with men" on their list? Concealing their desirable features? Avoiding social exposure without a male guardian present at all times? I've not heard a much more patronizing statement from a "respectable" politician since that idiot and his "legitimate rape" quip back during the election (actually, this current one is far worse). Anyone think this will get 3+ months of daily mention, as well?

    What gives? I thought rape-prevention classes are adamant about the need to fight back with all means available. Where are these folks shouting from Women's groups about the need for gun access? The very people who demanded the call boxes, safe zones, whistles, etc..? Nearly all women I know are in favor of guns for self-defense (granted I'm in Texas).

    BTW, that link is really slow (I wonder why..? :D). I love the groan audible in the background; a collective "oh man, did he just say that?" You can tell he figured out he messed up big toward the end of his statement. Well, he apologized, so "move along, nothing to see here." I'm sure that'd go over just great with any republican pol. Such chauvinism in our egalitarian, enlightened leaders...

    Oh yeah, I forgot it worked that way. We should really work on getting 911 deployed to Afghanistan, in that case ;)

    :cool:

    By the way, I'm all in favor of copious "vomiting and urinating" happening during successful rape defenses; that's exactly the reaction we want from a felon surprised by the business end view of a charter arms bulldog with 200-gr. Gold Dots gaping out from within the cylinder's chambers.

    Ladies if you are worried about rape...just whistle

    I guess the saying holds true. Gun control is the idea where being raped is morally superior to self defense.

    My favorite thing about these "slips of the tongue" are the apologies that follow. "Oh I didn't mean that" or ""My words were taken out of context."

    I sort of wondered what happened to Jimeny Cricket.

    Sorry, I've been writting my senators all evening and am getting punchy.

    I've seen abattoir workers on the kill room floor show more sensitivity than that man!

    Mokin: "give a little whistle".... I am also a little punchy, which might be why I actually giggled out loud at that. :p

    Of course politicians trying to backpeddle should also remember that a lie grows and grows until it's as plain as the nose on your face.

    They still have call boxes?:confused:

    Hopefully an attacker will have the good manners to attempt the attack near one of these boxes and will be patient while his victim uses the phone.:banghead:

    Maybe they could make rape illegal more than a certain distance away from these phones...

    It is the sole responsibility of of the person being victimized during a violent crime (or the witness(es) of any violent crime) to decide what measure of self-defense is required to save themselves from serious bodily injury or death.

    This includes any combination of passive or aggressive defensive measures, up to and including deadly force by any means necessary.


    It is NOT the purview of someone not at the scene to unilaterally make that decision for the victim(s).


    Telling women that they cannot use a gun against an attacker who may outweigh and out muscle them by a considerable margin is tantamount to telling them that they must submit to the will of their attacker.


    So much for being "a husband and father of two beautiful girls" and spending "the last decade defending women’s rights as a civil rights attorney".

    The Denver Post is currently running an internet poll on this, and we're losing.

    http://www.denverpost.com/

    You may have to scroll down a bit, and the poll is on the right side of the page. There's a picture of Salazar (bald, glasses, trying really hard to grow a goatee) near it.

    In my opinion, they're gift wrapping the legislature and governor's mansion for the GOP.

    Could be wrong, but I think all of this was a gross overstep.

    WHAT??? Where is the outcry? This is worse than Todd Akin's comments. Freaking ridiculous.
