Colorado Democrat: You Don’t Have to Shoot a Guy Trying to Rape You, Try Judo
February 19, 2013  //  By:   //  Gun Control  //  12 Comments

Yesterday we had two Democrats offering up their ideas in the heated Colorado gun debate, and boy were they something special.

One suggested guns were unnecessary on college campuses, because women who may feel like they’re going to be raped, might actually not be.  Another suggested that people that are enduring a mass shooting could simply wait for the shooter to reload, and then attack them with a ballpoint pen.

Well, things aren’t any better in the Centennial State this evening.  During the same debate over concealed carry legislation on college campuses, Democrat Paul Rosenthal suggested some more alternatives to using a gun for self-defense – including learning judo and using the buddy system.

So a woman being followed by a potential rapist in a parking lot, should whip out a copy of this from their purse:

All three legislators are trying to make Todd Akin look like a genius.

Revealing Politics (h/t Ben) has the clip, and here is a transcription:

Rosenthal:  Now, another point that was brought up was that a gun is the only method that a person, a student has at self-defense.  There are other methods.  There’s mace.  What about a taser?  The buddy system.  Other methods at self-defense.  Judo, or what have you.  There are other methods, it’s not just the only method out there known to man and woman today is a weapon … of a firearm.

The folks at Revealing Politics have a funny line at the end of the clip:  So don’t worry – If you don’t know judo, maybe your buddy does.

Here’s the video…

    they and their families should not have body guards, weapons or police protection. What world do these people live in? Guess we see how little they think of women. Seems like their stements are mental cruelty towards women.

    But the only thing that makes them back down, apologize and go away is the sight of a gun.

    My Personal Favorite is WASP & HORNET Spray. It reaches out about 20 Feet and temporarily blinds the Perp. !

    If that fails, you can always default to a Chipper-Shreader, “the ultimate deterrant”. Never seen a repeat offender after submission to the Chipper-Shreader.

    Neither of them are guns .

      I like the way you think–but I’d still rather my daughter just shoot them and avoid the mess of a chipper.
