He stated women should not depend on the nanny govt to insure their safety. I agree.<quoted text>Maybe I did. My point was if someone is arrested by the police in a domestic situation, they have reasonable evidence such as marks on the victim. They don't care which party made the call they arrest the person who caused injury. If you caused injury to another you lost control of yourself. If you can't control yourself having a gun is not a good thing. If you are found not guilty your guns are returned. The poster I responded to said some pretty lame things in my opinion, one being women should arm themselves and take care of business. I think that's just stupid and since the poster thought it wasn't I voiced my opinion.
There is evidence that women (mostly) will file a protection order and abuse claim JUST for revenge and maliciousness.
Ayoob states this best as he replies:
What about the argument that people die in domestic arguments because a gun is within reach of an angry person?
Certainly, those with uncontrollably violent tendencies should not own guns. When asked this question, I always respond with a question:“Could you pick up a gun and kill someone you love because they angered you?”
If the answer is No, I reply,“Then how dare you imply that I, and everyone else, would be that unstable?” If the answer is Yes, I suggest they stop attempting to counsel well-adjusted people and immediately seek psychiatric counseling for their own self-admitted tendency toward acting out impulses of uncontrollable violence.
