The difference is that nobody goes to Hell for killing a rapist.

“The theory is that the woman lying dead in the alley with her panty hose knotted around her neck is somehow more virtuous that the woman explaining to the police how those bullet holes got in her attacker.”
When seconds count, the po-lice can be there in minutes, to draw a chalk line around the victim, and try to catch the perp.
The average 911 response time is ten minutes. Can you distract an attacker for ten minutes? Twenty? I didn’t think so. The response time of a 9mm slug is over 1000 feet per second. If the goblin is 10 feet away, you only have to distract him for 1/100 of a second. That’s less time than it takes to draw your assault weapon (which is how practically all firearms are described today).
Amanda Collins had her concealed carry permit, but it was illegal to carry on campus so she didn’t. She didn’t walk to the parking deck alone, she walked with friends. They split up only because they parked on different floors. She constantly scanned the parking deck for any possible problems. She was less than 50 feet from the campus police department but they were off duty. She’s even a second-degree blackbelt.
She did everything right, but she was still raped. If she’d had a whistle it wouldn’t have mattered she said because there was no one to hear it. And call boxes were only installed after she was raped. The only thing that kept her from defending herself was that her 2nd amendment right had been taken away from her on campus.
Also, Piers Morgan refused to have her own his show to tell her story in support of gun rights. Imagine that. But you can listen to it below as she tells her story and refutes the idiotic comments coming from policy makers
