Video: Raped Woman Asks Why She is Forbidden to Carry a Firearm in Maryland

A raped woman speaks directly to the Maryland legislator about why they have disarmed her and all other woman, leaving them vulnerable to stalkers and others.

Thanks go to the Daily Mail for posting the video, under the headline, “Moment rape survivor stood up in Maryland state Senate hearing to demand the right to carry a concealed weapon.”

Jacqueline Kahn was speaking in support of a measure that would allow residents in Maryland to carry concealed weapons for self-defense.

The state is currently one of just a handful in the nation that doesn’t allow residents to carry firearms on the basis of protection alone.

Kahn was raped because she is an avid hiker and camper. Thanks to Maryland’s barbaric and unconstitutional disarmament policy, she can only do these things unarmed. Her NRA certifications and the weapons in her house are no use to her unless she wants to risk criminal prosecution (in both senses of the term!) and jail time. So she had nothing but her hand-to-hand abilities to use when a man invaded her tent. That wasn’t enough. The equalizing power of a firearm was denied her by Liberals in power.

Liberals need to be removed from power everywhere.

A few quotations from this raped woman:

  • I need you to know this is so incredibly difficult for me, but I feel like if I don’t humanize this, if I don’t make it clear how this legislation actually affects your daughters, your mothers, the women of this state, then it’s all just a bunch of numbers
  • I wish I could tell you that’s the only time I’ve been stalked, or that’s the only man who has stalked anyone in the state of Maryland. But there’s a huge number of women, who like me have been raped, who like me have been sexually assaulted — and we want the right to be able to do what we would be allowed to do throughout the majority of the rest of the United States,
  • When I’m in my house, I’m allowed to protect myself. But walking along the sidewalk, I’m not. So you make me into a criminal. You force me to decide, do I want to be judged by 12 or carried by six.

Watch the video if you have not done so already!

Remember, a couple of years ago the governor was trying to make sure that people could not even purchase a gun for their homes without a license.

And Maryland has become notorious for arresting and charging out-of-state drivers who have a gun in their vehicle because they don’t know that the state is a Second-Amendment-free zone.

Why do we have people in government more concerned about removing our ability to protect ourselves than they are with actually protecting us?
