While debating a bill on banning firearms at college campuses, Colorado state lawmaker and Democrat Joe Salazar commented that guns won’t stop women from being sexually assaulted. He went on to add, “(That’s why) we have callboxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. Because you don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop a round at somebody.”

His comments created quite a stir and controversy mainly because they were very insulting and condescending.

Salazar himself issued a formal apology but the damage had been done.

The internet went wild with reaction and somewhere along the way a hash tag #LiberalTips2AvoidRape was created and people, mostly conservatives started having a time of it.

Along the way it got serious as it became apparent that for those involved in  the cyber war of words had nothing better in mind but to make the other look bad and push their point forward, little caring that in the process they made light of s very serious and sensitive issue.

For those who think the action is justified by Joe Salazar’s comments, they should have another think coming. It's pretty apparent that they have taken up Salazar’s comments and are now using them in what tantamount to a satire line hate campaign and labeling the new poster boy for the "real war on women," and painted him as someone who denies women the right to protect themselves against sexual assault.

But it is not a subject to be taken lightly and all those who are using it to promote their point and bring the other party down, will only end up firing themselves in their foot.
