As the Colorado legislature enters into the final gun debates for the first tranche of gun control legislation, we’d like to remind readers that even the Democrat Party doesn’t think its gun legislation is going to move the needle. According to HB1226 sponsor Rep. Claire Levy (D-Boulder), her bill, which would render women on college campuses defenseless, may not even reduce violent crime.
Watch the Revealing Politics video, in which Levy makes no guarantees about her bill:
From the video:
“I make no assertion that this bill will either increase or reduce violent crime, that is not the premise of the bill.”
So, if this bill likely will not reduce violent crime, and it’s not meant to, what exactly is the point of this bill? Earlier this week, several rape victims testified that concealed carry was important to their safety on college campuses. Are Colorado Democrats disarming vulnerable women for naught?
