Dem state senator to rape victim: Having a gun on you probably wouldn’t have stopped him, you know

posted at 6:01 pm on March 5, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via Katie Pavlich, who reminds us that Colorado is the same state that brought us the urination defense to sexual assault in lieu of carrying concealed plus this moron mumbling about women with guns maybe taking potshots at innocent men whom they only think are rapists. The thing to remember as you watch the clip, in which an honest to goodness state legislator reasons that because the victim couldn’t karate the rapist off of her then a gun probably wouldn’t have worked either, is that there really are no “good” arguments against women arming themselves against sexual assault. Gun-control fans resort to idiocy like this vis-a-vis rape simply because they’ve got nothing better on the shelf than “well, maybe try blowing a whistle to alert the police instead.” In fact, per Pavlich’s post, the victim here was attacked just 50 feet from a campus police station (yes, Bob Beckel, it does happen) and since it was after hours, there was no help on the way. Which, as Jeffrey Goldberg notes, is not uncommon when a crime’s in progress:

An important, and overlooked, fact of the Sandy Hook tragedy is that it took police 20 minutes to arrive at the school. The police are spread too thinly across many American communities to stop shootings in their first moments. And armed civilians have been instrumental in stopping shootings at New Life Church in Colorado, Pearl High School in Mississippi and elsewhere.

This hasn’t stopped some Democrats from arguing against armed self-defense. Some left-wing commentators, members of a class not previously known for its love of the police, think their fellow citizens don’t possess adequate faith that law enforcement will protect them…

Shortly after Sandy Hook, a blogger at the Washington Monthly, making the unfounded assumption that the police provide Americans with flawless protection, asked, “Isn’t one of the fundamental reasons of forming any kind of government in the first place to provide for a common defense, instead of having to bear the totality of that burden all by yourself?” Yes, but this misses the point entirely. When the government’s provision of defense is inadequate, as it usually is during a mass shooting, you have to defend yourself.

When you boil down Hudak’s “statistical” argument, what she’s really saying is that guns are so dangerous that society’s better off leaving women unarmed and tolerating a certain amount of rape than letting them arm up and risking extra gun thefts and shootings. Note to House Democrats: I encourage you to run on that message in 2014 as part of your big “yay, gun control” platform. Suggested slogan: “You’re safer when you’re defenseless.”

Statistics never saved a rape victim. And I bet the woman packing was trusting in something with a faster velocity than statistics. So what is the woman trusting in who says to not have a gun? The police? The mayor? Obama?

Every one of these moron’s resistance methods have one thing in common: The rapist needs to be right next to his victim.

Even if the woman saw the dude coming or had a feeling that a guy hanging out nearby looked suspicious, her choices would be reduced to running, screaming, or barfing on herself.

The Democratic ninny trots out the claim that a gun wouldn’t have helped because she wouldn’t have killed her attacker. She wouldn’t have to kill her attacker to stop him. She could have scared him away, or just wounded him. The 83 who were murdered probably weren’t carrying a gun anyway, so it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with it.

Right in line with the jokes about only needing a .22 pistol to defend yourself from a bear – one shot to the knee of your hiking partner and you can easily walk away safely….

Does this idiot believe that even a .22 shot to the groin or knee would not stop him cold? (rhetorical question)

I’ve been in Colorado Springs (the reddest part of the state) for over 30 years, and it has been painful to sse the state go downhill so fast. We had a Republican governor and at least one house controlled by Republicans just 8 or 10 years ago. Now it’s total Dem control – although only by a very small margin. Most of the state, geographically speaking, is red – but the Denver-Boulder area has the majority of the population – and most of the libtard lunatics.

McDowall’s study for the American Journal of Public Health contrasted with the 1993 study by Kleck, who found that 2.45 million crimes were thwarted each year in the United States by guns, and in most cases, the potential victim never fired a shot.[85] The results of the Kleck studies have been cited many times in scholarly and popular media.

5 Things the Gun Grabbers Apparently Don’t Understand
http://townhall.com/columnists/johnhawkins/2013/03/05/5-things-the-gun-grabbers-apparently-dont-understand-n1525945/page/full/
This is really what the debate on gun control in America comes down to in the end: people who lose nothing if guns are banned because they don’t use them demanding that everyone else be disarmed.

Meanwhile, trying to reason with gun control advocates is like arguing with a four year old about whether her imaginary friend is real or not.


1) A “gun free zone” won’t keep bad people with guns away:
The basic problem with a “gun free zone” is that anyone you can’t trust with a gun will bring it in anyway while it will cause the people you’d want armed in a dangerous situation to leave their weapons behind.


2) Criminals and lunatics don’t obey gun laws:
Yet, the gun grabbers in the Democrat Party operate on the assumption that nut jobs like Adam Lanza or a gangbanger who sells crack for a living is going to get rid of a high-capacity magazine if Congress says he can’t have it.


3) We already have somewhere between 200-300 million guns in this country
: If there were no already existing guns in America, gun control could conceivably help keep weaponry out of the hands of criminals and mass murderers. However, in a nation that’s already armed to the teeth, the next Adam Lanza, Jared Loughner, Tookie Williams or Mumia Abu-Jamal has already got his gun and new laws will only disarm law abiding Americans.


4) Gun owners aren’t required to explain a “need” for our Second Amendment rights:
Why do gun owners “need” their guns? The same reason that Rosa Parks “needed” her seat at the front of the bus. In other words, it’s our constitutional right; so kiss off! Ann Coulter said:

“Free people are not in the habit of providing reasons why they ‘need’ something simply because the government wants to ban it. That’s true of anything — but especially something the government is constitutionally prohibited from banning, like guns.”


5) You’re not fooling us:
Liberals like to think they’re smarter than everyone else, but they’re as transparent as glass to anyone who’s paying attention. If Barack Obama, Diane Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden and the rest of the Democrat gun grabbers in Congress could get away with it, they would ban and confiscate every gun in America tomorrow — and people know it.
And that’s why they always seem so ghoulishly pleased after tragedies like the Gabrielle Giffords shooting or the Newtown massacre. Everybody else is thinking of the victims, while they’re twirling their mustaches Snidely-Whiplash-style and repeating, “Never let a serious crisis go to waste,” to each other.

Ladies, there are two things you should have in your purse: the highest quality striker-fired 9mm single-stack semi automatic pistol that you can afford (keep it in what is called a “pocket holster” so that small, loose things in the bottom of the purse don’t find their way into the barrel) and a small CR123A lithium battery powered LED flashlight that delivers at least 100 lumens of light. I recommend the 9mm because it suffer the least amount of performance loss in shorter barreled weapons when compared to other popular self-defense pistol calibers and I recommend lithium batteries because they hold their charge longer in storage and leak less often.

And take the training to learn to use these two items together with confidence.

When Bill Clinton brings a half dozen or so women to testify about the NEED for partial birth abortion the liberals are reduced to tears and legislate for abortion on demand for any reason. When a women is the victim of rape or a women watches her family slaughtered in a massacre the liberals offer lame statistics, phony condolences, and try to legislate away their God given rights to self protection.

This moron is from the same state as this protector of child molesters. Colorado sure picked some turds in 2012.

In following these hearings they allowed self described non-expert Mark Kelly to speak for over 10 minutes while denying Colorado residents more than 3 and even turning some away who were not on the democrats ‘experts list’. These jerkoffs have made up ther minds. They plan to ram all 7 of these craptastic bills down our collective throats and there is little doubt Hickendouchebag will sign them all. I’ve been calling and writing these a$$hats for two months. They don’t listen. This state is screwed up. I’m moving to Cheyenne.

“What are you going to do–shoot your date?”

“Women might shoot the wrong guy.”

“The statistics aren’t on your side.”

“Go on the balcony and fire two blasts from your shotgun.”

“Shoot through the door.”

When [Sammie Foust] heard the blinds rattle in the living room the following morning, she assumed it was her cat returning. But it wasn’t. It was three-time prison inmate James Wayne Horne, who had been released for the third time only a few weeks before, after serving slightly more than one year of as 10-year sentence for aggravated assault.

The robber-assailant rushed into the bedroom. Foust offered him her purse, which he dumped on the bed, finding $400 in bills. He then demanded Foust tell him the location of her jewelry box, which she did. But the man was upset with the cheap quality of the costume jewelry, returning to demand “her diamonds,” viciously slashing her with a knife and beating her about the face.

“You know I’m going to kill you,” he hissed. “So you might as well give it up. Die easy or die hard, bitch.”

Foust directed the man to a second credenza. She knew it contained only more costume jewelry, but she needed space and time. Time to pick up the little .25, which she was amazed her assailant had not spotted … and to figure out what to do with it.

You see, Sammie Foust had never fired a gun in her life.

She aimed for the man’s center of mass and pulled the trigger. It sounded like a little cap pistol. There was no recoil, no blood. She figured the gun had misfired.

But she’d certainly managed to upset Horne, who flew back across the room, punching her square in the face. The assailant pulled her to her feet, grabbed her wrist, and tried to wrench the gun away with one hand while pummelling her with jackhammer blows to the face with his other fist. Police later told her James Wayne Horne had knocked out four of her teeth, which she’d swallowed. The bones in her gums were crushed, and her left cheekbone was fractured. Her nose was broken and her larynx fractured. Horne pounded and slashed at her face with his knife until one eyeball was hanging out of its socket.

But he did not get the gun.

When Police arrived … they found James Wayne Horne where she had left him. The medical examiner concluded the first shot had entered his mouth, the second his heart, the third and fourth bullets his abdomen and groin. He had taken nearly an hour to bleed to death.

This is going to sound sexist, but it’s not:

That’s easy for an ugly woman to say. Statistics are on her side when it comes to the likelihood of her being raped.

She’s much less likely to get raped, and is probably therefore a lot less worried about it, and therefore does not empathize with the victim as much as she ought. Plus, she’s an idiot, so there’s that.

I learned to shoot a gun and got my concealed carry permit when I was 50 years old. It’s only a matter of time before these dumb arses here decide that my Ruger .22 has too many bullets (10) and my .38 special bullets are too big.

More important, don’t let a grandchild bite his Pop Tart in such a way that it looks like a gun. He’ll get suspended from school, and counselors will have to be made available to other children who felt cringing fear at his terrorism.

There is a serious disconnect in the brains of liberals…

They come off sounding so caring, but it’s a facade, it’s so fake, Hudak had trouble finding a word to show her sympathy with the young woman and the best she could come up with was ‘unsettling’?

Go piss on yourself you hag…

From one report I read, Hudak wouldn’t look at the witness the whole time she told her story.

GD that fat slob of a cow for her stupidity!!

Looking at her picture reminded me of the Rodney Dangerfield joke about having two brown bags. One for you and one for the ugly women in case either failed.

Can you imagine waking up to that woman in the morning? There isn’t enough alcohol in the world that might me want to go home with her at Last Call.

I really might have to move to another state soon before they totally Kalifornicate Colorado.

If there’s one upside about living here in the People’s Republic of Illinois is that we’ve already hit rock bottom. I’m not saying things are looking up (they’re not) but it would suck to be in a decent, functioning red or purple area and see it slip away to emotionally-challenged Leftist transplants and their backwards, reactionary voting habits.

visions on March 5, 2013 at 6:19 PM

They eff one place up, then when it sucks so bad they can’t stand it anymore, they move somewhere else and implement the same stupid policies that effed up the first place. And then they repeat it again, never making the connection that the problem is their own stupidity.

Liberalism: A Progressive disease.

I doubt the libtard senator wants to ban all firearms. I mean it looks to me like she applied her makeup with a shotgun. It’s probably the blast from that that made her wig crooked.

Dear America…this is what happens when the liberal locusts come to your state…

I must disagree. It’s simply that, like all liberal Democrats, she can’t get anything right on her own.

Liberal politician, “Did you say Pop? That’s the sound a gun makes. Is that some kind of a terrorist threat?”

Liam on March 5, 2013 at 8:22 PM

That could be. In fact from the looks of things it could be that the liberal elected to the seat couldn’t even make it that day so she sent the ass end of her horse to fill in for her. That would explain both the looks and what came out of it.

alchemist19 on March 5, 2013 at 8:49 PM

Yet another feminist liberal who looks more like your average male bowler with a drinking habit…

Yeah, she knows about the thought of being raped. Vile pig.

CurtZHP on March 5, 2013 at 10:03 PM

Wasn’t it great to watch the lib refer to a vicious rape as “unsettling”….
……watching a Charlie Sheen interview is “unsettling”….rape is flat out horror you imbecile.

Wait a second…..the dem states that for every woman that killed her attacker with a gun…83 were killed. Whether this statistic is valid or not is up to serious question….
………but one thing is clear….Obama/biden have been going around the country stating that “even if it saves one life…it’s worth it”……

…………so tell us dem…..do you agree with Obama/Biden.

…and while your at it…maybe you could explain all the “statistics” that confirm that weapons bans don’t work and in fact increase violent crime in many areas….
………..where are those statistics genius.

Baxter Greene on March 5, 2013 at 10:16 PM

…by the way lib Senator….
………….the fact that victim is trained in the martial arts and was still overpowered only enforces the importance of her being able to carry a weapon to defend herself.

Baxter Greene on March 5, 2013 at 10:19 PM

Note to House Democrats: I encourage you to run on that message in 2014 as part of your big “yay, gun control” platform. Suggested slogan: “You’re safer when you’re defenseless.”

I’m terrified… that this would actually get them elected.

pookysgirl on March 5, 2013 at 6:09 PM

Would the 9/11 hijackers have been able to take control of 4 airplanes with box cutters if airport security hadn’t forced all passengers to completely disarm before boarding the planes?

Probably not.

I’m beginning to think a university which allows student carry might start to have an edge on recruiting.

I’ve got mixed feelings about allowing students to carry

, but, watching these knuckleheads try to explain their logic is certainly infuriating.a capella on March 5, 2013 at 6:15 PM

Really? We’re only 25 years removed from when it was NOT unusual to see guns in gun racks out in the student parking lots or even hung in the dorm. Once a buddy of mine and I got pulled over by a cop while riding my Kl250 and carrying an AR15. He didn’t pull US over because of the gun. Rather the bike had no plates and we had no helmets. We were just riding “slowly” down some side streets from the campus trying to get out to the sabine so we could plink and ride the trails. He let US go with a warning when he found out we were college students and at least I had a m class license, even if the bike wasn’t street legal. Good times then, paranoid times now. And that was when the kkk used to sponsor sections of the highway for litter patrol and stand around waving their signs and guns. Yup . Give me the good old days instead of this clap.

Easy to win the war on women when you won’t let them defend themselves.

Unfortunately, I live in this hag’s district. I don’t have much hope for turning Colorado back in the other direction. I fear we are solid blue now.

We had a wonderful candidate in Lang Sias, a former Navy pilot now in the CO ANG, but he just couldn’t beat her, we were very disappointed. Too inexperienced a campaigner, not enough money, too many stupid and uninformed voters. Or maybe this is just what most people want. Will people even remember this by the next election?

My family came here in 1872. We’re seriously thinking of moving to Wyoming, where the West is still free. In the meantime, we will NOT comply with these unconstitutional laws.
