Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- In an open letter opposing efforts to expand campus carry around the country, Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety demanded an apology from two Republicans who are pushing campus carry as a way for college women to protect themselves against sexual assault.

In other words, the GOP must apologize for using campus carry for women’s safety.

In the letter, ( tiny.cc/jd5kux )Everytown calls out Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R) and Florida state Representative Dennis Baxley (R).

They point to one of Fiore’s recent statements, in which she said, “If these young, hot little girls on campus have a firearm, I wonder how many men will want to assault them.” Everytown is demanding an apology for that statement.

Everytown then points to Baxley’s suggestion that a woman with a gun has a better chance fending off an attacker than a woman without a gun, and that armed women “could prevent their own rape.” Everytown is specifically demanding an apology for these suggestions also.

Everytown then equates campus carry with “forcing guns on college campuses.” The gun control group asserts that it is a move that will “arm assailants” and will provide them “yet another tool of violence against their victims.” Everytown does not, however, explain this screwball reasoning.

    1. What needs to happen to some of these anti gunners is to have a major aassaultor worse and then see what they have to say about guns, and just to make things fair have the bad guy using a KNIFE, I think there are many of those anti rights idiots that would change their micro minds. The people of this country NEED our guns not just to protect our families but to guard against tyranny, such as we are seeing at this time in dc or the swamp or what ever name you wish to call by.

    2. When my oldest daughter then 24 had her first apartment one of the things I gave her was an 8 shot Taurus 22 version of the smith kit gun. I taught her to shoot it. She was very capable and I slept well knowing she could put 8 22s in 3 inches at 20 feet double action. Thankfully she never had to use it.

    3. A well trained young women that has a firearm will have a grater chance of fending off an attacker, than an a woman without a gun. Also She might save that other woman without a gun from being a victim too! Everytown just don’t know what they are talking about.
