    Think Tank Wants Guns - Rape Victim Wanted Gun

    Think Tank Wants Guns - Rape Victim Wanted Gun

    In an article on their website, the ASI cites a recent report which looks into the causes and reasons behind the fluctuating levels of homicide and violent crime.

    The report notes the general trend of violence growing between 1200 and 1505, which then suddenly nosedives over a 400-year period until the start of the 20th century. The fall coincides with an age of growing firearm ownership, until European governments started strictly regulating them.

    One of the most concerning points of the report is the degree to which violence has increased in the United Kingdom since laws controlling the ownership of firearms were first seriously enacted in the 1920s.

    Quoting the report, they said: “The homicide rate in England in 1920 was 0.84 and the assault rate was 2.39. In 1999, the corresponding rates were 1.44 and 419.29. Thus both the homicide and assault rates increased as the effective supply of handguns declined… That’s a 17,544% increase in England’s assault crime over the past 100 years”.

    Rape Victim Wanted Gun

    Across the country, legislators are debating the right of law-abiding concealed carry permit holders to legally carry firearms onto university campuses.

    Just the other day, I was asked “Why do you need a firearm on campus? What’s so threatening about becoming educated?” Here’s my answer: Eight years ago, during my junior year at the University of Nevada-Reno, I was raped in the parking garage only feet away from the campus police office.
    As this stranger raped me while holding a pistol to my temple, I could see the police cruisers parked for the night, and I knew no one was coming to help me. Eventually the man who raped me, James Biela, was caught. He was tried and convicted for not only raping me at gun point in a gun-free zone, but also raping two other women and murdering Brianna Denison. So, I ask, “How does rendering me defenseless protect you against a violent crime?”

    At the time of my attack, I had obtained my Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) permit for the personal choice of not wanting to be a defenseless target. In Nevada, permit holders are not allowed to carry firearms on campuses. As a law-abiding citizen, I left my firearm at home, which means that the law that is meant to ensure my safety only guaranteed the criminal an unmatched victim.
