Skip to comments.Colorado Democrat: Legislature, not guns, will keep you safe

Another Colorado Democrat has stoked the states raging gun-control debate by challenging the argument that guns are needed for self-defense.
Colorado House Majority Leader Dickey Lee Hullinghorst said in an interview on YouTube last week that firearms ownership is redundant because the state Legislature keeps citizens safe from harm.
As a woman, I have the right not to carry a gun and to feel safe on the streets, and thats what we provide for in the state Legislature is for all of us in the state of Colorado to feel safe on the streets without having to carry a gun, said Mrs. Hullinghorst on The Tim Caffrey Show.
She also took a swipe at gun owners.
The thought that the only way we can protect ourselves is to wield our own weapon is completely absurd and an argument that I absolutely discount as frivolous, Mrs. Hullinghorst said.
Her comments came as Democrats face a strong backlash against the Colorado Legislatures sweeping gun-control legislation passed earlier this year. Early voting already has begun in the Sept. 10 recall elections of Democratic state Sens. Angela Giron and John Morse over their votes in March in favor of the bills.

Worked for the Jews in Nazi Germany. NOT!
Really? How does that work?
and when she’s attacked by someone at gunpoint, will “the Legislature” jump out from behind a bush and save her?
or does she really just think it’s awesome that we can all live in a big brother police state with a cop on every corner looking at all of us as potential criminals until we prove to them otherwise?
I wonder if this one studied under Sheila Jackson Lee or Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz.
Well Dickey, why don’t you take an after dark stroll around 5 points without your security and let un know just what a great job the legislature is doing to keep you safe.
So when she is attacked on the street by a rapist, the state legislature is going to protect her how?
Gov is failing at all levels with brain trusts like this.
If the Legislature keeps us safe, how come we have a major crimes unit in Denver where the legislature works.
If that’s the case there would be no criminals.
“Really? How does that work? “
Well, see, for example, lets say a burglar is breaking into your house when youre home. First you dial 911. You tell them that someone has broken into your house. You give them you name and address. Then you ask them to please send in your nearest councilman.
“in Denver where the legislature works.”
Are you sure about that?
Does she have an”armed Detail”??
And who’s going to protect the people of Colorado from the legislature ?
Heh, the other gun-grabbers are probably tweaked at her for being so honest.
So, I’m supposed to believe that the Dems aren’t after my guns? Ha!
Another brain-dead liberal that worships at the altar of government.
She doesn't guarantee that you will be safe, just that you will feel safe. You're expected to embrace the illusion and not see the reality.
