Colorado Lawmaker: No Need For Guns, Legislature Will Protect You

September 5, 2013 by  

Guns don’t protect people; the government does.

At least that seems to be the sentiment of Colorado House Majority Leader Dickey Lee Hullinghorst, who said in a recent interview that citizens in the State don’t need guns for protection because the Legislature keeps citizens safe.

She went on to claim that gun owners are absurd in basing pro-gun arguments on self-defense.

“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,” said Hullinghorst on “The Tim Caffrey Show.”

“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,” Hullinghorst said later in the interview.

Amanda Collins, a rape survivor and 2nd Amendment advocate who rallied against Colorado’s draconian anti-gun proposals earlier this year, would probably disagree.

In 2007, Collins was 50 feet away from the campus police department at the University of Nevada-Reno, a gun-free zone, when serial rapist James Biela attacked her at gunpoint and brutally raped her. After he had finished violently forcing his perverse sexual will upon Collins, the 28-year-old pervert went on to rape two other women, killing one: 19-year-old university student Brianna Denison.

Collins recently described the incident thusly:

If I had been carrying that night, two other rapes would have been prevented and a young life would have been saved. All of these are just sentiments that give a false sense of security. In my experience I know that the university that I attended, the University of Nevada-Reno, they didn’t have any call boxes the night I was attacked. They afterwards installed them but I can tell you that a call box above my head while I was straddled on the parking garage floor being brutally raped wouldn’t have helped me one bit. The safe zone? I was in a safe zone and my attacker didn’t care. It’s known that I could see the police cruisers less than 50 feet away from me, from where I was being attacked but the moment I saw those cruisers, I knew at the same time that no one was coming for me. … they were all off duty.

The State Legislature, it seems, was nowhere around to stop the brutal attack.
