Sexual Assaults Fell 90% After Colorado Springs University Legalized Campus Guns

Daniel Greenfield writes at Frontpagemag.com:

Colorado Springs University legalized the right to carry concealed firearms on campus in 2003. Since then, according to Students for Concealed Carry, the number of forcible and non-forcible sexual assaults dropped sharply, falling 90 percent from a high in 2002 to a new low in 2008.

While Colorado Democrat Joe Salazar suggested that women could not be trusted to carry guns on campus because they might not know when they’re being raped, a young woman who was raped on campus because she was not allowed to carry a firearm, despite having a permit, has said otherwise.

Greenfield concludes: "They say that an armed society is a polite society. It may also be a rape-free society so long as the right to bear arms isn’t limited to just cops and criminals."
