Colorado Democrat: You Don’t Need a Gun State Legislature Will Protect You
According to Colorado House Majority Leader Dickey Lee Hullinghorst, you might as well just get rid of your guns, because guess what? You don’t need them!
According to Hullinghorst the state legislature will protect you just fine.
According to the Washington Times,
“As a woman, I have the right not to carry a gun and to feel safe on the streets, and that’s what we provide for in the state Legislature is for all of us in the state of Colorado — to feel safe on the streets without having to carry a gun,” said Mrs. Hullinghorst on “The Tim Caffrey Show.”
She also took a swipe at gun owners.
“The thought that the only way we can protect ourselves is to wield our own weapon is completely absurd and an argument that I absolutely discount as frivolous,” Mrs. Hullinghorst said.
This is despite the fact that numerous studies, including a recent CDC study, show that you’re more likely to survive a violent encounter if you’re armed with your own gun.
This isn’t the first time that Colorado Democrats have found themselves defending asinine Second Amendment related comments.
State Sen. Evie Hudak told a young woman that she would be more likely to have her own gun used against her during a sexual assault than successfully stop the assault.
Despite Hullinghorst’s comments I think I’ll still rely on my sidearm for protection for now, thanks.
