RUSH: “As gun rights advocates push to legalize firearms on college campuses, an argument is taking shape: Arming female students will help reduce sexual assaults. This year, lawmakers in 10 states who are pushing bills that would permit the carrying of firearms on campus are hoping that the national spotlight on sexual assault will help them win passage of their measures.
“‘If you’ve got a person that’s raped because you wouldn’t let them carry a firearm to defend themselves, I think you’re responsible,’ State Representative Dennis K. Baxley of Florida said during debate in a House subcommittee last month. The bill passed. The sponsor… Michele Fiore, said in a telephone interview: ‘If these young, hot little girls on campus have a firearm, I wonder how many men will want to assault them. The sexual assaults that are occurring would go down once these sexual predators get a bullet in their head.'”
Hot little girls? This from a female assemblyman in Nevada. See, this is great. The left tells everybody there’s a culture of rape all over the campus, all over American universities, it’s happening, it’s terrible out there. And people react to that. “Really? It’s a culture of rape? Well, we gotta get the women guns.” And the left, “Ah, ah, ah, ah, wait, wait, wait ah, ah, ah. We didn’t mean that.”
Well, now, wait a minute, what is it? You have a culture of rape and you’re not allowing these women to protect themselves, or is it not that bad? And the left can’t say, “Well, it’s not really that bad,” ’cause they’ve got too much tied up in the whole thing. I think this is just perfect and it illustrates again how the left just does not factor the dynamic reaction to the things they say, the legislation they pass, or the things that they do.
