Gun Blog Black List

Caleb on Fox & Friends this morning

The first thing that struck me about the segment (here’s the link to the video on the Gun Nuts page) is that Caleb seemed very composed.

Not irrationally angry.

Not vengeful.

He very calmly outlined his points, and moved on.

Kudos, as well, for also pointing out that the Commercial Appeal website also lists names.  I’m one of the women he was talking about – I got a gun because of an ex who’d raped me and then began stalking me.  I went through all of the appropriate steps to become licensed to carry a concealed weapon, and I’m listed in the same database section that my ex would be if he was arrested for that rape.  How is that a public service?

Good job, Caleb.

    I’m a little confused. Why hasn’t your ex been arrested for this rape? Did you report it? Did you get a restraining order for the stalking?

    If you reported this rape, I’m wondering why your ex hasn’t been arrested?

    • There’s something called dissociation that can happen after a traumatic event – it’s your brain’s way of protecting you from the truth, if the truth is something that will do more harm than good at that point in your life. Here’s the rape story – the aftermath is that, basically, there’s a statute of limitations, a lack of evidence, and the military is also involved. The chance of anything coming of this now is slim to none – and I have attempted to get a restraining order (not that it would do any good if he DID try anything – which is why I decided to learn to defend myself), but because his contact with me was limited to things that the police did not see as threatening, I was brushed aside.

      The fact is that while it would be nice if the police were able to take care of everything for me, I realize that they can’t, and sometimes won’t. I learned that the hard way.
