Fox News host Stacey Dash says she was sexually assaulted while her baby son Austin, her child from another relationship, slept in a nearby bassinet.
Dash has a new book out where she revealed she had moved in with a friend after a break-up with her boyfriend but he found her, barging into the home and assaulting her violently, while she tried to fight back. She said she got away from him, ran upstairs and got her .22 revolver.
“And so I lifted the gun up to his head and pulled the trigger,” she writes. “It was a tough shot to make, since he was coming up and I was going down. My depth perception was off, and I was so disoriented by fear and anger that I missed. But by this time, I was committed. I wanted to kill him. I pulled the trigger two more times, missing him each time. However, he got the message loud and clear.”
Dash is a 2nd Amendment advocate and she is a NRA card-carrying member.
From Washington Times:
Actress and Fox News contributor Stacey Dash revealed Wednesday that a gun saved her life nearly 25 years ago when she was raped by an ex-boyfriend.
Ms. Dash told People magazine that she endured a physically abusive relationship with a man for years.
“I didn’t feel like I was a person,” the 49-year-old said. “I was so starving for love, that I held on. Some of the time he took care of me, and I got [beaten up] in order to have those moments.”
Ms. Dash’s ex-boyfriend continued to stalk her after their break up, even as she became pregnant with another man’s child, People reported.
She said her son Austin, now 25, was asleep in his crib right next to her as she was raped by her abuser.
“He had a gun to my head and I thought, ‘My son is in that crib right there,’ ” Ms. Dash said. “[I thought], ‘No you are not going to do this. My son’s life was more important to me than my own.’”
When her attacker came back, Ms. Dash said she picked up a gun and fired several shots at him but missed.
“I wanted to kill him,” Ms. Dash said, “but it scared him away.”
She said it was that moment that solidified her belief in the right to self-defense.
“A gun saved my life,” she said. “That’s why my Second Amendment right will not be taken away from me.”
Women should be the primary advocates of gun ownership. Firearms are a force equalizer which helps prevent violent attacks on women. The fact that so many American women are anti-gun is simply baffling. It’s unfortunate what happened to her, but I’m glad she was able to defend herself from the man who attacked her.
I have always liked Stacey. She is not afraid to speak her mind and stays true to her morals. I admire her strength. She needs to become an adviser of some sort for our loser government. We have become the scariest country in our history.
