Colorado Democrat Joe Salizar had some choice words for women who want to carry firearms for self defense. He believes that police call boxes, safe zones, and “the whistles” are sufficient defense against rape. And besides, even ”if you feel like you’re gonna be raped” you might be wrong.
Here’s video of his statements:
“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.”
Oh, ladies. You’re probably just imagining things. You don’t need a gun to defend yourself from a rapist. Just make sure you’re carrying “the whistles.”
