Colorado Democrats have pulled out all the stops to take away our Second Amendment rights. In one of the most asinine arguments in favor of one measure, Representative Joe Salazar (D-Thornton) suggested women might wrongly shoot someone if they “feel like” they are going to be raped.
Leftist lawmakers have waged their war against law-abiding citizens with punitive measures that take aware our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Four measures moved through the Colorado House of Representatives in recent days, all of which of course passed thanks to Democrats having a majority.
In floor debate about House Bill 1226, Salazar said:
“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.”
Silly, girls. You don’t need a gun. You just might wrongly hurt someone in your frightened, emotional state. Rep. Salazar thinks you should just whistle while you’re raped.
No doubt women will feel much safer today knowing that they are protected by safe zones, whistles and call boxes.
It would be hard to believe that last November Adams County voters could select someone worse that term-limited Judy Solano in House District 31. They appear however to have done just that in electing Salazar, someone who clearly will fit in well with the Adams Family.
The four measures move on to the State Senate now where, unfortunately, they are likely to pass with flying colors by the Democrat led majority in that chamber. It is a shame that leftists are more concerned with limiting our rights than they are with tackling real measures that would protect us.
