She allegedly apologized while making up statistics about guns to support her misguided ideology.
A state Senator is apologizing for appearing insensitive with comments made to a rape victim during testimony at the Capitol.
That victim, Amanda Collins, was raped in a University of Nevada-Reno parking garage in 2007. Collins had a permit to carry a concealed weapon, but Nevada law prohibited concealed weapons on college campuses.
At the Colorado Capitol on Monday, senators were debating House Bill 1226, which would ban concealed weapons on Colorado college campuses.
“How does rendering me defenseless protect you against a violent crime?” Collins asked Senate committee members.
State Sen. Evie Hudak, a Westminster Democrat, responded.
“Statistics are not on your side,” Hudak said. “Even if you had 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, (he) 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 then cited a statistic from the Colorado Coalition Against Gun Violence.
“For every one woman who used a handgun to kill someone in self-defense, 83 were murdered by them,” Hudak said.
That’s absurd. How could someone who used a handgun to kill someone in self-defense then be murdered by a gun? It makes no sense. But of course, after allegedly apologizing, she repeated this nonsense.
“Amid this emotional testimony, my goal was to share research data about the increased danger of having a gun in an assault. As a domestic violence victim advocate, I know that for every one woman that used a handgun to kill someone in self-defense, 83 were murdered by them. My timing was not the best for making the point. I’m glad I had the opportunity to offer Amanda a sincere apology in a private conversation.”
She “knows” this because some anti-gun agitprop group told her so.
