I'm not sure. I'll look up the statistics.

It's to counterpoint the argument that gun's are needed for protection from rape.

I don't know any woman who carries around a gun regularly to protect herself. Just pepper spray and the occasional taser.

My mother does. She calls it Betsy.



I'm anti-gun but this is f**king retarded.

Has she ever shot anyone or held a criminal at gunpoint?

No. she got it after being in a situation where she would have used it.

Seriously though. I'm all for gun control, but sending out a public service ad that says "Think about your rapist's safety" is a f**king ridiculous and infuriating.
On top of that, the first ad really downplays the horrific experience of being raped.
"Oh, boo hooo. You were raped. It only lasted 30 seconds."
Blood is boiling right now.

I know. I have never been sexually assaulted, and my ears were ringing from this. This is so disrespectful.

It's fake. The Brady Campaign did not create those posters.



Another BG member posted this link in another thread a couple of hours ago when this came up.

I let others do my thinking for me. :wink: Kidding, obviously. I've honestly never seen anything about The Brady Campaign, but those things were terrible!

Yeah, they were terrible.
There is so much false information being spread around by the gun nuts these days, it is sickening. All to cause hysteria and, in turn, sell more guns.

My gun is to PREVENT rape, not to kill my rapist after the fact. The police will be more than welcome to do their job after I have defended myself.
