Colorado Democrat state Representative Joe Salazar has apologized for his recent comments about rape, which he claims were taken out of context. The comments that have him in hot water were made while he was discussing a gun bill, which involves guns on college campuses. He essentially says that women who fear being raped can’t be trusted with guns.
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 a round at somebody."
Should we now add Salazar, a Democrat, to the imaginary War on Women concocted by liberals in the Democrat Party? Where are the Democrats calling for Salazar to get out of politics, similar to what happened when Todd Akin made his stupid comment about rape during the 2012 election cycle?
Now this same police superintendent has ruffled feathers by suggesting that firearm owners advocating for gun rights are “engaged in corruption that endangers public safety.” Here's the report from the Illinois State Rifle Association:
Chicago's embattled police superintendent dug himself deeper into a pit of controversy today by claiming that lawful firearm owners are agents of political corruption. Appearing on a Chicago Sunday morning talk show, superintendent Garry McCarthy expressed his conviction that firearm owners who lobby their elected representatives or who donate money to political campaigns are engaged in corruption that endangers public safety …
McCarthy went on to say that he believes that the 2nd Amendment supports mandatory liability insurance for firearm owners and the mandatory application of GPS tracking devices to civilian owned firearms.
Do you think criminals will be carrying around updated liability insurance? Do you think criminals will be wielding guns with proper GPS devices? I didn't think so.
