When a woman is raped, most people would agree that further victimization of that woman should be avoided at all cost. However, a GOP lawmaker has suggested that women need to carry a gun and learn to use it to protect themselves. The lawmaker was criticized for implying that women who don't carry a gun are at least partially to blame for the fact they were raped. The lawmaker was also criticized for using rape to push a gun rights agenda.

Key Takeaways:

  • Indiana Lawmaker Jim Lucas received criticism after suggesting that women should arm themselves with guns to prevent rape. After reading an article in an Indiana newspaper, Lucas wrote a handwritten letter advising a follow up story that included firearm usage to empower women against being raped.
  • Critics claimed Lucas was being insensitive and was trying to further his pro firearm agenda. He praised a pro gun group named Women Armed and Ready, and posted photos and images of items he bought from the group on his Facebook page.
  • Lucas apologized for his comments, but also voiced his amazement at the backlash he received. He reiterated that rape is an "evil horrible crime" and was surprised at the negativity his words invoked. However, Lucas has made comments about women before that have been criticized as well.

"Rape occurs in part because victims aren’t “empowering themselves” by packing guns. That was the recent message from a fiercely pro-gun rights member of Indiana’s House of Representatives."

More Of The Same

It is important to set yourself apart from the pack. This has been the successful approach that many different people and entities have applied to their own lives. Doing more of the same is something that gets boring and it will not last a long time. So, it's important to understand that and apply it to your life.

Key Takeaways:

  • If we had been able to adopt the right mindset and developed the necessary skills such as learning to punch hard and fast, our chances of success would have gone up.
  • One approach can result in multiple outcomes. If you punch somebody they may not move back, but instead cover up, or immediately come back with a punch of their own.
  • There are obviously preferred solutions and tactics, but we may need to broaden these so that we can handle the “exceptions”, that are present in many real-life scenarios.

The Top 10 Self Defense Weapons For Women

The article states how self defense is important to a woman. It broke it down to show a rape happens 10 to 12 times every hour. Sure guns are good but they don't work as well when you are up close to the person. It suggest other weapons that are effective. One is a tactical knife. It is 3 inches long and does more damage then a bullet. It doesn't even look like a knife. A common one is mace. You don't have to get to close to get the attacker with this. It only affects the attacker long enough for you to get away. There are many on this top 10 list that are very helpful for women.

Key Takeaways:

  • Follow the 3/3 rule when selecting a blade: 3mm thick and 3 inches long. That’ll keep your knife light enough but sturdy enough to inflict damage.
  • a stun gun masquerading as a lipstick case can deliver millions of volts into your assailant, whereas a larger one that looks like a cell phone can deliver even more.
  • The sheer power of one is hard to deny: unlike a stun gun, which merely causes intense pain, the Taser has the capacity to shut down the nervous system entirely, completely incapacitating your attacker.

"It only makes sense for women to be concerned, because while violent gun crime is actually down in most places, assault — sexual and otherwise — is slowly creeping up year by year."

Fears over personal safety leading to domestic abuse cases being dropped in Herts and Beds, according to law firm - BOB fm (press release) Sometimes a domestic abuse case is dropped because the person feels their safety is in jeopardy. They fear retaliation if they keep the case going or they fear the actual trial where they have to speak about what happened. This is apparently happening more. It is unfortunate since abusers should be brought to justice whenever possible. Dropping the case doesn't insure this.
