Wow: Another Colorado Legislator Goes Wild, Instrucing Rape Survivor a Gun Wouldn't Have Stopped Her Violation, No Matter What She Might Think

In. Credible.

You're a dumb little girl and you don't know what you're talking about. Why don't you stop talking, dumb little girl?

Katie Pavlich previously reporter her story. I'm going to quote some of it, but you should probably read it all.

Amanda Collins is a young rape survivor. While in college in 2007, she was raped 50 feet away from the campus police department office at the University of Nevada-Reno and was lucky to get out alive. Her attacker was James Biela, a serial rapist who raped two other women and murdered another. He attacked her at gun point in a gun free zone. At the time of the attack, Collins was in possession of a concealed weapons permit but was not in possession of her firearm due to university policies prohibiting carrying concealed weapons on campus.

...

"I was legislated into being a victim," Collins said.

Well, that's a hell of a story, and a hell of an inconvenience for the Bullets-Don't-Work-On-Criminals crowd. Fortunately, Democratic State Senator Evi Hudak was there to propagate this theory:

"Well, 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 and possibly use it against you," Hudak said.

Collins responded by saying, "Respectfully Senator, you weren't there...I was there, I know without a doubt in my mind at some point I would have been able to stop my attack by using my firearm. He already had a weapon of his own, he didn't need mine."

Ms. Hudak probably doesn't know what "semi-automatic" means, given that she seems unclear that a gun a projectile weapon usable at range. She seems to not understand the rapist was interested in a live girl, not a dead body, and that Collins, however, would have been quite interested in a dead rapist. As rape must be conducted at touching distance, but shooting can occur at touching distance to hundreds of yards away, I'm a bit flabbergasted by this notion that a rapist would obviously just take a gun away from a woman.

Is he going to deflect bullets with his Sith hands, too?

Dana Loesch notes that guns are used 2.1 million times a year to defend against crime, and 10% of those cases -- 210,000 per year -- are cases of women defending themselves against sexual assault.

Allah takes Hudak's "statistics" argument for what it is: A simple statement that some women are just going to have to be raped -- 210,000 women per year will have take one for the team -- for the Greater Good of disarmament.
