Reacting to more stories of young women being murdered, radio talk show host/columnist/author Doug Giles writes that he has a dream that more women will stand up to their attackers:
“I’d like to see a nationwide tsunami of ladies equipped to the teeth with the physical prowess and the firearm capability to kill any and all would-be murderers and rapists should such creeps ever accost them.
I have a dream!
A dream where instead of reading about a cute college coed left dead and naked out in a vacant lot or bloated and floating in a river, the story reads, “dead jack ass found double-tapped and dead on the curb as his soul wings its way to hell, all because he messed with the wrong mama.”
A dream where it’s normal for girls to know Jui Jitsu and mixed martial arts. A dream where they can shoot golf ball sized groups with their .38 at 15ft. A dream where they have a BS detector that’s so sensitive they can read people and environments with godlike clarity within a nanosecond.”
Giles offers some staggering statistics:
• One rape or sexual assault occurring every two minutes
• 172 women being physically and/or sexually assaulted every hour
• 261,000 rapes and sexual assaults occurring in the US in 2006
• 2.8 percent of college women experiencing rape (according to a six-month US Department of Justice study)
• 17 percent of rape or sexual assault victims being victimized by someone they knew
“We’ve got to make certain that our babies know how to leave a bad guy severely inoperative and, if need be, kill them all by their lonesome. That is my definition of “girl power.” This is my dream: all girls of every conceivable stripe having the attitude, skill, and force to pulverize a felonious punk.”

Giles might take some comfort in that many women are taking his advice.
Unfortunately, we live in a state with a governor (who is an attorney) and a Legislature filled with too many Democrats who choose to trample on the Constitution and deny law-abiding citizens the opportunity to carry a concealed weapon to protect themselves.
