#WARONWOMEN - Colorado Democrat: No Guns For Women, Even If They Feel They're Going To Be Raped

The latest in the liberal Democrats' War on the Second Amendment, a Colorado Democrat in their statehouse thinks women don't need to be armed, even if they feel they're going to be raped (Dana Loesch, RedState).
Said Salazar:
“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop around at somebody.”
This is the real “war on women” I’ve talked about: the progressive insistence that women disarm. Women, according to Rep. Salazar, are hysterical things which shoot indiscriminately at any and everything.
Some statistics, My emphasis:
In the vast majority of those self-defense cases, the citizen will only brandish the gun or fire a warning shot.
In less than 8% of those self-defense cases will the citizen will even wound his attacker.
Over 1.9 million of those self-defense cases involve handguns.
As many as 500,000 of those self-defense cases occur away from home.
Almost 10% of those self-defense cases are women defending themselves against sexual assault or abuse
This “feel like you’re going to be raped” nonsense is as poorly-worded as the “shut that whole thing down” drama from last fall. If Democrats don’t swiftly condemn this, I see this used as a tactic to showcase the vast lack of respect Democrats have for a woman’s right to self defense.
I guess liberal Democrats think the only right women are entitled to is the right to an abortion, if they need one.

Will Debbie Thunderlips Wasserman-Schultz and the rest of the Democrat Activist media voice as much outrage as they did about Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock last fall?
