Breotbart reports syndicated radio host Stacy Washington made a powerful point in connection with carrying a defensive weapon.
Briefly quoting the Breitbart report linked above:
…talk show host Stacy Washington pointed out that armed people are harder to lynch and she expounded on the helplessness blacks faced when Democrats disarmed them during the Jim Crow era.
Give the lady the loving cup, she put that one in the center of the bullseye.
Lynching has gone out of style; my wife and I were almost newly weds when what has repeatedly described as America’s last lynching took place. But a woman is fifteen times more likely to be successful y raped if they are not carrying than if they are. The numbers vary with the crime, but a woman is one quarter as likely to be robbed if she is carrying, and assault against an armed woman is rare.
“Armed gays don’t get bashed,” armed homeowners don’t get robbed, and yes, back in the day, armed black people did not get lynched. Amd tje tritj be tp;d. tjat ;ast fact is one of reasons the Democrats and the bed sheets wanted Black and Indian Americans disarmed.
Incidentally, Ms. Washington sounds like a lady worth listening to:
NB: The Post Dispatch is is notorious for its anti-gun position, and is a flagship outlet for Lee Media, which has never seen a gun ban it did not like.
