Recently, the Colorado senate conducted hearings on firearms control. One of those who testified was Amanda Collins who was raped in full view of the campus police station. Why didn't they come out to help her? They were closed for the night.

When she testified that she would have been able to thwart the attack and save the other two victims of the rapist, one of whom was murdered, Sen. Evie Hudak told her that the chances were that the perp would have taken the firearm from her and used it on her ignoring the fact that the rapist was already armed with a firearm. SOURCE

The Hudak statement is HERE.

Amanda Collins had a CCW but was not allowed to have it on campus.

Amanda was interviewed on Cam & Company recently. HERE is the link to that interview.

My letter to the editor of the Denver Post.

Re: “Colorado Sen. Evie Hudak responds to criticism over comments to rape victim,” March 6 news story.

In the recent Senate hearings on campus concealed-carry legislation, Amanda Collins — who was raped on her college campus — testified before the committee. In response to her testimony on her attack, Sen. Evie Hudak stated, “[C]hances are that if you would have had a gun, then he would have been able to get that from you and possibly use it against you.” My question to the senator, and all others inclined to vote for this legislation, is: How is it morally superior for you to disarm me to prevent an attacker from disarming me?

That simple question frames the debate.
