The way to prevent rape around the world is to arm women and train them to “make clean head shots,” according to provocative actress and comedian Roseanne Barr.

In a surprising series of pro-gun tweets, the former Green Party presidential candidate argued that “until women use force to fight force, force will win against them.”

Barr attempted to appeal to her nearly 198,000 followers’ common sense, asking “if pervs thought they would be immediately shot for even touching a kid or anyone else-they might become aware of reality more quickly.”

Take a look (Warning: Some strong language):

Barr’s tweets were both welcomed and criticized by Twitter users.

Her comments come after Colorado Democrat Rep. Joe Salazar argued that women don’t need guns on college campuses because there are “call boxes,” “safe zones” and “whistles.” He also argued that just because a woman “feels like she’s gonna be raped” that doesn’t mean she actually is in danger.

“You just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at,” he said.
