Currently under Florida law, I am not allowed to carry on my campus, Florida State University. On my campus that reported 17 sexual assaults in 2014; on my campus that uses maybe 10 uniformed officers at any given point in time to protect the whole campus; on my campus that refuses to back campus carry as a way for women to legitimately protect themselves from assault; and on my campus which claims sovereign immunity when they are unable to protect these women: I am told I am safe and I do not need a gun.
While President Thrasher and university officials would have you believe that I am not defenseless, and even, that I am safe on campus, I would beg to differ. I already used pepper spray once; do you want to know how that ended for me? I was left shaking and crying, half naked on campus grounds, with cut marks all over my body. That’s what pepper spray did for me.
Powerful stuff. De La Portilla needs to hear from this woman and everybody else who is a target in a Florida Campus. So I will ask of you a small favor that will take you less than a minute. First, highlight and copy the following email address:
Next go to the article linked above and find the “email this” icon.
Paste De La Portilla’s email address and send it. Let’s fill his inbox so he cannot say he never saw her side of the issue.
We cannot have a Florida version of Harry Reed screwing with the lives of people for whatever petty desires he may have.
