That’s not how women who have survived rape see it.
“I have been unspeakably victimized once already, and I refuse to let that happen again to myself or my kids.”
Implying women have a right to self-defense is capitalizing on violence against women? What a dysfunctional, loser, soul-of-a-slave argument. Talk about blame the victim: don’t try to defend yourself ladies because you’ll just get hurt, better to sit back and enjoy the rape or beating.
I hope you’re not a defense lawyer because you’re obviously not familiar with the concept of disparity of force. Two men against one or a man attacking a woman is a disparity of force that justifies using deadly force. A woman who is attacked by a man and in fear of death or great bodily harm will not be convicted by any court in the land.
The Florida woman who fired several shots in the presence of her ex-husband and children was convicted of attempted murder because in the words of the judge “there is insufficient evidence that the Defendant reasonably believed deadly force was needed to prevent death or great bodily harm to herself.” Had she shot her ex because he was trying to harm her she would have been exonerated. Hardly representative, why would you encourage women to be passive victims?
Dylan Roof was a window licking retard with a bowl haircut; he is no more
characteristic of gun owners than Jared Loughner was of liberals. I love how we’re not supposed to judge all Muslims by the acts of that Islamist couple who machine gunned a Christmas party but we’re supposed to condemn all gun owners for the acts of a mentally ill, racist white boy.
Instead of all this bedwetting over racism and lynch mobs think of the 2nd amendment as a constitutionally protected right like the right to abortion; if you don’t like guns just don’t have one.
