Colorado Democrat: A Gun Wouldn't Help You If You're About to Get Raped
Maybe Colorado state Democrats should sprinkle a little salt and pepper on their feet …because they continually put them directly into their mouths over, and over again.
Colorado State Sen. Jessie Ulibarri (D) – “Congressman Giffords’ life was saved and so many others’ when very valiant folks stood up to defend themselves and protect themselves, and they did it with ballpoint pens.”
Colorado State Rep. Joe Salazar (D) – “And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop a round at somebody.”
And now we have this, Colorado State Senator Evie Hudak (D) telling rape victim Amanda Collins that a gun would not have helped her, and actually may have made the situation worse. Hudak apologized to Collins, but noted, “I don’t know how genuine it really was.”
Just to recap this, a Senator told a victim of rape that a firearm would not have helped her defend herself because statistics show that an attacker would take the gun and use it against her.
There are two scenarios here: An attacker comes at a girl already with the intention of committing a violent crime. Assuming the girl is smaller and less powerful than the man (like in the case of Amanda Collins above), she has no quality line of self defense beyond making noise loudly as a cry for help or fighting back as best she can.
….or she has a gun and a way to defend herself against the much larger, more powerful man.
In either scenario, the girl is getting attacked, but with a gun she has the means to defend herself. Obviously she should not use the gun unless the situation warrants it, but that is why everyone that carries a gun should be well trained in gun safety.
COMMENT: Do you think Sen. Hudak’s argument is valid?
