Bob Beckel on guns: When was the last time you heard about a rape on campus?

Via Mediaite, I missed this last night but Twitchy didn’t. After months of “war on women” demagoguery keying off of Akin and Mourdock, I didn’t expect that the left’s big gun-control push might include a contingent of rape minimizers keen on keeping guns out of women’s hands. Then again, I didn’t expect that it would include an impassioned plea by Joe Biden for Americans to go out and buy shotguns either.

It does happen, of course, on campus and off. You may well know someone to whom it happened, assuming you aren’t a victim yourself:

It’s a terrible mistake by gun-rights groups not to emphasize self-defense for women more than they do, I think. Too often when you ask Second Amendment supporters why people need guns, they come back at you with hypotheticals ranging from remote to somewhat less remote but still pretty remote. Threat of the government instituting martial law? Remote.
