Well, more specifically, Salazar doesn’t believe women should own them, especially if they “feel like they are going to be raped.” Of course they don’t need them… because there are “safe zones.”
“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop around at somebody.” (H/T – Ace)
In 2012, Republican Todd Akin ran against Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill. During the run-up to the election, Akin made a jackass comment regarding “legitimate rape.”
Naturally, the MSM crucified him, and Akin lost the election. I eagerly await the MSM’s tenacity when dealing with Salazar’s comments.
