Dogwalk: Spare Me From Stupid Men!

RE: Colorado legislator comment: Women don't need guns, even if they fear sexual assault

The debate goes on as to whether guns and campuses are compatible.  I'm a little surprised that Colorado is taking the stance that they are not.  This is macho outdoorsy rugged individual country. Maybe the macho part of it is the problem.  You know, the women as property, barefoot and pregnant, etc. I'd not expect so much of that on a campus and certainly not in the legislature, but here we are. That being the case I shouldn't have been surprised to learn that  one Joe Salazar, a state representative feels rape is due to gender inequity and that women really needn't be permitted to carry a gun for protection. In essence because they are too flighty and emotional making them prone to shoot prematurely if they feel threatened. You know, like being followed in a dark and deserted area  when that's all it is -- being followed/Dogwalk Musings. More here.

Question: Dogwalk Musings has a point. An unusual amount of clueless men get elected to office. Is that there fault? Or are they able to hide their stupidity from voters until they're elected?
