Oslo Rapes Mount

This year Oslo's clinic at Legevakt, the emergency hospital, has served nearly 300 alleged rape victims higher than the Big Apple's per capita rate. It's head Endre Sandvik, said, "Our resources have been the same for the past 10 years, while the number of our patients has doubled, and continues to increase this year." Oslo City Council health issue chief Sylvi Listhaug, said, "The growth in the number of rapes is dramatic: It makes me angry, and worried about the young women of our city."

Hand each woman a hog leg and show her how to use it and the problem, uh em, will   be solv-ed(as Peter Sellers, Clouseau would say).  
Economist John Lott says the benefits for women carrying firearms are 3 times more than that of their male counterparts.

A woman definitely needs to be able to defend herself in this day and age. The Oslo story surprised me because Norway appears to be one of the most civilized countries in the world.
