The war on women is in full court press under the gold dome of the Rocky Mountains. It seems that whenever a Colorado Democrat opens their mouth about gun control legislation, it’s simply to insert the other foot.
Two weeks ago Representative Joe Salazar (D-Thornton) suggested that women may be too irrational to use a firearm to fend off an attacker and should instead opt for a rape whistle or call box. State Representative Paul Rosenthal (D-Denver) doubled down on such “sound reasoning” offering alternatives to firearm defense ranging from “the buddy system” to “judo”.
Well, the gun control measures passed the Colorado House and moved onto the Senate, providing Democrat Senator Evie Hudak (D-Westminister) with the opportunity to disrespectfully lecture a brave rape victim about situational awareness.
Amanda Collins, of Reno, Nevada, offered a heart wrenching testimony about her experience and that, had she been permitted to conceal carry her firearm on campus, the incident may have been avoided. Cue Senator Hudak’s crass and downright outrageous remarks:
“I just want to say that, actually statistics are not on your side even if you had a gun,” Hudak said during the hearing. “And, chances are that if you would have had a gun, then he would have been able to get that from you and possibly use it against you.”
Talk about insensitive.
We all remember when Todd Akin spoke stupidly. The GOP was up in arms, refusing to fund Akins race and calling for his withdrawal. All this after he offered an apology. Meanwhile, in the world of Democrat double standards, no protests have been organized against Rep. Salazar, Rep. Rosenthal, or Sen. Hudak. I have yet to find one press release from the National Organization of Women condemning the anti-woman, anti-defense rhetoric used by these Democrat officials.
So, as we collectively shake our heads, and before we mass tweet #WeAreEqual, I want to present this video I produced for The Young Cons (@YoungCons).
