While discussing Colorado’s proposed ban on concealed carry on campuses, Uber-liberal on the Fox show The Five, Bob Beckel asked “When was the last time you heard about a rape on campus?”  of his his four colleagues on Tuesday’s show.

“What are you talking about?” co-host Eric Bolling responded. “It’s rampant.”

“In particular, date rape on campus,” co-host Dana Perino added.

In 2010, the DOJ estimated that 25 percent of college women “will be victims of rape or attempted rape before they graduate within a four-year college period.” It also noted that women “between the ages of 16 to 24 will experience rape at a rate that’s four times higher than the assault rate of all women.” Schools with more than 6,000 students “average one rape per day during the school year.”

According to NYUs “National Statistics about Sexual Violence on College Campuses,” fewer than 5 percent of such cases are reported to law enforcement. [Yahoo]

Beckel did apologize. You have to understand that he is a liberal who wants gun control – he’ll say anything. He is now in the same group as Rosenthal, Ubirri, and the DHS who want to disarm women.
