Did a CO Democrat just say, Even if you feel like you might get raped, you may not, so no need for a gun?

“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. 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 around at somebody.”

Oh, please Mr. Rapist, don't cross that line to enter my safe zone, but if you do, I'll whistle you into submission.

That's all you need...  A whistle and for the rapist to give you time to make it to the call box.

I think it's horribly phrased, but I get what he was trying to say.

Yes he did - Hard to believe.

If a Republican said this, Dems would call him an old-school misogynist. And they'd be right.

So, this Democrat is an old-school misogynist.

 Apparently, the ass has never heard of women's instinct.  I would certainly know  whether I think some one is following me or not, or if I feel cornered.  Take away a woman's right to carry a gun on campus, and watch the rapes and assaults go up.

The male legislator was so condescending to women.  I wonder if he trusts women in combat, women police officers., women FBI officers, women Secret Service officers, etc.

 What a jackass.

I, for one, am really tired of rape being used as a political tool.

I do too.  There is a danger of someone perceiving a threat where there really isn't one, and shooting someone.
