Or you know, any basic psychology textbook.
When trained soldiers can have issues shooting a gun at a living target, you think an emotionally damaged person in a self-weakness sense can do the same? This is a person who wants to escape with their life, not someone out for vengeance. If you're talking about something like a year later maybe the woman would be in a more safe place mentally and could do it, not right after it happened.You do realize aiming and pulling a trigger on a gun is not some massive effort
That one night in jail gives the woman time to find a safe place. If the husband does go to the friend or family member's house you think they would even answer the door for him? As soon as they see him they would call the police. And if the husband does anything from there that just makes his extended jail trip come sooner.I am saying that many of those shelters are not so easily accessible. Also last time I checked 1 night in jail =/= 2 weeks.
Because most rapes happen when the rapist comes in plain sight in the middle of the day, not like they would wait until it was dark and sneak up on the person, that would just be stupid.Keep in mind that had a raped woman had a gun during the rape, she could have protected herself
Mace/pepper spray would be a much better thing to use, as even in a panicked situation spraying it in the air would still get the person.
