Your turn…

…In the debate over firearms regulations, the voices of gun owners have largely been those of men. But at firing ranges across the country, a growing number of women are learning to use firearms and honing their skills…

…Tina Wilson-Cohen, a former Secret Service agent who founded She Can Shoot, a women’s league with 10 chapters and 3,000 members across the country, said 90 percent of women who joined did so because “they’ve been a victim at one point of their life, of stalking or date rape or domestic violence, or they have just felt so vulnerable, and they want to feel competent and like they can protect themselves.” …

    Than shoot his nuts off. Even if you just feel like he might rape you.

    ^ that’s hardly liberal, ma’am. Effective, though.

    A more liberal idea would be to dress to disimpress. Maybe a burkha?

    Don’t think of them as a rapist, think of them as an undocumented lover.

    As late as August, 2000 this was still being put forth.

    This is what a 30 round magazine is for.

    Or a Taurus “Judge” is for.

    Or a 1911 with a full load is for.

    Or a .50BMG is for

    or a 12 gauge “Home Defender” shotgun with buckshot or slugs.

    Whatever the gun is, empty it into the bastard
    and claim he just kept threatening and you were fearing for your life.

    After that he won’t bother you any more.

    Actually 5 rounds of .38 Special hollow points would do a very effective neutering job. But I still think you’d be better off with no live assailant to come back and sue you.

    The ported Taurus 605 in .38/.357 is a nice concealed revolver carry.

    Rape free zone?

    Damn, all this time I thought it said free rape zone.

    In my police work I was always taught that if you shot someone, empty the gun on them, then tell the first supervisor on the scene that you think you shot twice. The only person I ever shot was actuality shot twice.

    Yell “Boo!” at the undocumented lover ( #3) and hope that the guy pisses or pukes his bad self.

    s2,

    Remember, no resistance was, and still is, pushed for all crime. You are supposed to let the professionals take care of it.

    Are you a clerk at a convenience store being robbed? Just do what they say. Your airplane being hijacked? Just do what they say.

    Long war.

    #4, s2: If I remember correctly, years ago, some male politician caught holy hell when he advised women who were being raped to “lie back and enjoy it”. But I think that’s what “professionals”, especially those who work for The State, have been advocating for years: “when confronted by a bad person, don’t fight back – don’t resist (why, you might hurt your assailant and we can’t have that). Call for help and wait for the professionals (like the police).” Worked really well for Kitty Genovese and for the folks on the three jetliners that hit the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on 9/11.

    I get Missy’s attempt to get the sarc out there (I’ve written three snarky comments, then deleted ‘em), but I’m having a harder and harder time making fun of these vile jackasses. Their arrogance and stupidity kills people. They put women, in particular, at risk.

    Denying the innocent their use of a weapon puts them at the mercy of the predator, and predators have no mercy. It’s a reversion to strong vs weak, something that civilization has spent millennia trying to overcome. A weapon helps negate the vulnerability of the weak and the outnumbered, a firearm does this most effectively of all.

    Whenever a self-anointed jackass says anything other than “Defend yourself with whatever means you deem fit, which is your natural right,” they condemn the weaker members of society. The Progs see no absurdity or atrocity in their pontifications.

    If you’ve paid attention over the years, you already know what I think. You also don’t need any more of my seminars. Okay, maybe one or two briefing bullets:
    Never submit while you have the means to resist an attack. If you give up, you die and/or worse. Yeah, you may get hurt, but you’ll be alive to heal.
    • When a predator threatens your right to life, they forfeit theirs.
    • It’s not your job to remove predators from the street; but if that’s what happens, you shouldn’t feel badly about it; and you shouldn’t deal with people who want you to.

    If predators don’t feel safe on the streets, then the innocent are safer on the streets.

    Hell, Steve, I thought it said “rap free zone”, and I was gonna move there!

    I read one do-gooder recommend “Tell the attacker you have HIV.”
    And that’s when the attacker says “So do I.”
    I keep thinking about Kitty Genovese dead and 50 years later her rapist/murderer is still alive. No social justice there.

    People don’t shoot for the nutsack enough. Don’t know why. It gets immediate attention, even a bottom grazing shot. It’s my solution for almost every confrontation between the Good GUY/Gals and the Bad I see on TV.

    Darrell ^
    Within grappling distance, the pelvis is a good target: it’s easier to hit without raising your gun above hip height (aiding retention), it’s instantly crippling, and it’s agonizing.

    But, yeah, shootin’ off a perv’s pecker has a kind of artistic justice to it.

    Within grappling distance…

    See, that the problem right there. If they don’t stop when they are told to stop, they lose the ballsack. The next wakeup call is center mass.

    On “The Following” this week, an armed cop tells the murdering cult member to stop when he first comes through the door of the barn–clearly twenty feet away. The guy makes his way to the cop with the old “I only want to talk to you…I hear what you are saying” bullshit. That wouldn’t happen to me in a million years.

    ^ Sometimes, grappling is the first indication of danger.
    Even if it’s not, within arm’s reach may be the place to which a fight quickly transitions.
    Gotta learn to shoot from many positions (on your feet and off) and with either hand.
    A fight ain’t a day at the range with a static paper target.
