UPDATE: Glenn spoke about this story on his TV show:
Now that the election is over, the left doesn’t seem so concerned about the war on women. And for people supposedly all about protecting women, they sure have a strange way of showing it. Once again a Democrat politician has gone after women on rape.
Amanda Collins, who was a guest on The Glenn Beck Program last week, went before Colorado state legislators to speak out against their efforts to increase gun control.
Shockingly, when she told the story of her rape and how it would have been different if she had a gun, she was told by Sen. Evie Hudak “actually, statistics are not on your side, even if you had a gun.”
“You said that you were a martial arts student, I mean person, experienced in Tae Kwon Do, and yet because this individual was so large, was able to overcome you even with your skills, and chances are that if you had had a gun, then he would have been able to get that from you and possibly use it against you,” she added.
“Had I been carrying concealed, he wouldn’t have known I had my weapon; and I was there. I know without a doubt in my mind at some point I would’ve been able to stop my attack by using my firearm,” Collins explained.
Glenn played the audio on air today and just couldn’t believe what he heard.
Watch the shocking exchange below:
Glenn was shocked by the idea that politicians, who are notorious for bringing up individuals to make their point, have no problems reducing Collins to a statistic.
“You talk to talk about a war on women – there it is!” Glenn said.
“Colorado, what is wrong with you? How you are not on the front steps of your capital throwing these people to the wolves?” he added.
“Sure you might be raped, but statistics show the group as a whole won’t be. Welcome to the new America where two plus two equals five,” Glenn said.
Glenn warned that the country was rapidly spiraling out of control and it was happening at a faster and faster rate.
