Girls With Guns: 9 Noteworthy Tweets on Arming Female College Students to Deter Campus Rape

By    |   Monday, 23 Mar 2015 02:04 PM

The always raging-gun control debate in the United States has come to college campuses recently, as National Rifle Association-backed lawmakers have proposed a "girls with guns" solution or in other words, arming female college students as a way to deter campus rape.

The proposals are consistent with the organization's long-standing goal to ease gun regulations, under the banner of protecting Second Amendment rights. In opposition, college anti-rape advocates have joined with pro-gun control groups in accusing the NRA of using concerns over sexual assaults as a way to allow for weapons on college campuses.

Carrying concealed firearms on college campuses is banned in 41 states by law or by school policy, though gun advocates from 10 states are hoping that the national attention on rape will help them change that playing field, according to The New York Times.

Naturally, many in the political arena and Twitter have voiced their opinions. Here are 10 examples:

1. "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 Representative Dennis K. Baxley.

2. "If these young, hot little girls on campus have a firearm, I wonder how many men will want to assault them. The sexual assaults that are occurring would go down once these sexual predators get a bullet in their head." — Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore.
