Being in favor of gun control means being in favor of disarming law abiding citizens and empowering criminals, including murderers, robbers and rapists. But, better women be raped than have guns, because their puny female brains can’t handle the adult decision making required to use a firearm — so says Colorado Democrat Rep. Joe 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.”
The 2012 election is over and it looks like the party that kept yammering on about a “war on women” now wants to disarm them and leave them helpless against bigger, stronger, violent attackers.
But no worries, because the University of Colorado has a solution for women.

Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone.
