Gun Control Proponent: Addressing Sexual Assault Shouldn’t Be Tied to Arming Women

Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)-  As Safe Campus Colorado pushes for a November ballot initiative to ban concealed carry on college campuses in that state, its founder, Ken Toltz, says suggestions of arming more women to fight the growing epidemic of sexual assaults on campus is not the way to go.

According to Toltz, “The statistics are really worrisome about how prevalent sexual assault is on college campuses. We’re not doing enough, and handing out guns is not the solution.”

According to Boulder’s The Daily Camera, Toltz also said those who defend concealed carry as a way for women to fight sexual assault “politicize” and conflate two issues – sexual assault and concealed carry – which ought to be dealt with separately.

He used these comments to try to undercut the effectiveness Amanda Collins’s testimony before the Colorado legislature.

Collins testified about “how a concealed [carry] gun may have allowed her to stop her sexual assault as it was happening on a college campus in Nevada.”

Katherine Whitney just graduated from Colorado University’s law school. She has a concealed carry permit and said, “There are women in this state who have been raped on campus but have concealed carry permits and are still completing their degrees. It’s very important that they are able to attend a university where they’re permitted to carry on campus.”

Toltz did not explain why his group is pushing a ban that will disarm law-abiding female gun owners who go through an extensive personal background check before being issued a concealed carry permit for self-defense.

      Yet, elsewhere, the “Gun Safety[?]” groups do not want to deal with Violent Crime and Concealed Carry separately. They never address how to reduce Violent Crime and instead only want more gun control laws!

    2. Toltz,another colorado moron !

    3. This is right in line with the Brady bunch. They are a group of gun crime victims that had no way to defend themselves from gun crime and their solution is to make everybody unable to defend themselves from gun crime. Stupid is, as stupid does.

      Tolz is an unindicted conspirator for the Rape the Bitch Party of Millions. My daughter has been trained by people skilled in physical warfare but I still want her to carry as she and many Women are patsies due to compassion and kindness adding up to being vulnerable at time. Want her to stay kind nurturing and deadly.

      Neither should it be tied to disarming the general public.
