Besides proclaiming a day for remembrance, has the Canadian government made these crimes against women stricter?
There's an article on that site titled something like "how two pornographers turned me into the 'F' word" and it's by a man. I think you may
find it an eye-opener about how much "yeah yeah. We'll nod to shut the feminists up" is done and how LITTLE they think this problem is.
Can these women get guns to protect themselves
Women have been socialized against violence. Very few know how to shoot and of those that do, most would hesitate to harm/kill someone. By the time
she made up her mind, he'd have the gun and another weapon.
I'm not making this up. I coached fencing (sword fighting) and they used to use me to "retrain" the guys. Most women with a sword in their hand
are very timid or very hysterical fighters (even with some training.) I'm very unusual because if you come after me aggressively, I will come after
you and tear your head off.
The guys would always start off very confident and "ho hum" about facing a small woman on the fencing strip. After I had scored about six hits on
them and run them off the fencing strip several times (I chased one guy up into the bleachers) they got the message that Not All Women Are Wimps.
But most couldn't use that gun. And most can't use most of the "self-defense" tactics we're taught (it's not that they're WRONG... it's just
that they work well UNLESS you're in pants, running shoes, and you're being attacked by a Very Small Man who is your height.
There ain't that many 5'3" muggers in America, lemme tell ya.
