Brian Wilson got on a roll yesterday morning.
I don’t have an exact timestamp but it was in the 7:30 time frame.
He made the assertion that the true war on women was the right to defend themselves.
His example was:
“Taylor Woolrich, a junior, says Dartmouth administrators told her they won’t let her carry a gun on campus, even though she lives in fear of a man who has been stalking her since she was a high school student in San Diego.”
I have a “bumper sticker” quote that sums it up: “Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose
Brian went on to argue that the R’s should adopt this issue in response to the D’s “war on women” spiel.
He also suggested that the NRA jump on this issue.
And, he expressed shock that this was in New Hampshire, the “Live Free or Die” state.
(I’m a signer on the Free State Project freestateproject.org to move 20,000 liberty lovers to NH and make it the “truly Free State”. Obviously a lot of work to be done yet.)
The Second Amendment is about self-defense. Both from the tyranny of the government and other predators both two legged and four legged.
Seems so simple to me!
