This is from Dana Loesch, who happens to get an astonishing amount of outright sexist hatred from anti-gunners on her twitter feed simply because she's an attractive, well-spoken, pro-gun woman rather than a contemporary "feminist."
Here's Democratic Senator Evie Hudak responding to Amanda Collins.
“I just want to say, statistics are not on your side, even if you had had a gun. You said that you were a martial arts student, I mean person, experience in taekwondo, and yet because this individual was so large and was able to overcome you even with your skills, and chances are that if you had had a gun, then he would have been able to get than from you na possibly use it against you …”
How nice of these Dem. Lawmakers to consistently show the level of contempt and disdain they have for gun owners. If recent events have shown us anything, it's that the core of the Democratic Party has no respect whatsoever for our 2nd Amendment rights.
Remember, she is saying this to a rape victim who HAD a concealed carry permit and carred her handgun outside of campus, but was disarmed by lawmakers like Hudak while on campus (where she was raped) Hudak (D) is telling Ms. Collins that "statistics are not on her side"* and that had she been armed she would have likely been overpowered anyway and had the gun used against her. Interesting that anti gun folks keep making the "your attacker will just take the gun away and kill you with it claim." With the growth of CCW and OC they should be able to point to a mountain of hard data showing this to be the case.......only they can't, because it happens so infrequently as to be statistically insignificant.
She was without a gun, and she WAS overpowered and raped by her attacker. She was within eyesight of the police station, yet no one came to her aid. Of all the solutions these people talk about, not one would have done anything to keep her from being raped. Only in the bizarro world of liberal anti-gunners is the situation Ms. Collins found herself in automatically worse for the her if she's armed. It's as if these assholes want women like Amanda Collins to engage in hand-to-hand combat with a rapist.
*yet she sites no stats because she has none. It's a well known fact that active physical resistance is the best course of action for a woman to take if she's being raped.
I would say that maybe the left knows that rapists are one of their solid voting blocks, and can't vote if they get killed by their potential victims. That's not true though. They can vote anyway. Just look at Chicago.
