Instead of sure shot victims would be rapist think twice at the risk of of getting shot. That is why Florida lawmakers are proposing this practice. I have seen some studies that revealed a virtual elimination of rapes when concealed carry handguns are in the mix. Here is one article Concealed Carry Can Help Reduce Sexual Assault at Universities. Here are a couple exerpts from the article.
“If you’ve got a person that’s raped because you wouldn’t let them carry a firearm to defend themselves, I think you’re responsible,” Florida state Rep. Dennis K. Bexley said during a House subcommittee debate last month.
Meanwhile, other bills are being proposed in Indiana, Montana, Oklahoma, Nevada, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and Wyoming.
