Colorado Rep. Joe Salazar’s Unacceptable Non-Apology

If you haven’t already seen it, here’s Colorado Democrat Rep. Joe Salazar telling women they’re incapable of determining when there is or isn’t a threat against them:

And here’s his “apology,” courtesy of KDVR:

“I’m sorry if I offended anyone. That was absolutely not my intention,” Salazar said. “We were having a public policy debate on whether or not guns makes people safer on campus. I don’t believe they do. That was the point I was trying to make. If anyone thinks I’m not sensitive to the dangers women face, they’re wrong.

In classic liberal fashion, Salazar hasn’t apologized for his offensive claim that women can’t tell whether or not they’re in danger of being raped. Instead, he’s apologized that you were too stupid to understand him.

But what’s equally disturbing is Salazar’s claim he doesn’t “believe” guns make campuses safer. The data is readily available. Colleges are required to report their crime statistics to the FBI in a uniform report that is publicly available. If Salazar weren’t blindfolding himself to the world and blasting the party line at 120 decibels, five minutes of research would have shown him that sex offenses at Colorado State University fell off a cliff in the wake of the 2003 concealed carry law.
