A Fox News segment on gun control and concealed weapon laws led panelist Bob Beckel to somehow question the prevalence of rape on college campuses last night.

Beckel, a liberal co-host of "The Five," was discussing the proposal to ban concealed weapons on Colorado campuses and debating with his colleagues what a woman might do in the face of an attacker when he asked:

His fellow panelists reacted in consternation, of course, as the Department of Justice estimated in 2010 that one in four women "will be victims of rape or attempted rape before they graduate within a four-year college period."

Watch the very awkward exchange now:
