Rape Survivor Confronts Obama on Guns: Why Can’t You See You’re Making Me ‘Less Safe’? He Replies…

Obama is apparently really against guns, and he wants to make sure that everyone else is, too. And when he was confronted by a rape survivor on guns, he couldn’t have been more condescending and insulting to her.

Kimberly Corban, who survived a 2006 rape while studying at a Colorado college, presented her question to Obama at CNN’s “Guns in America” town hall event.

“As a survivor of rape and now a mother to two small children, you know it seems like being able to purchase a firearm of my choosing and being able to carry that where me and my family are — it seems like my basic responsibility as a parent at this point,” Corban told Obama. “I have been unspeakably victimized once already and I refuse to let that happen again to myself or my kids.”

“So why can’t your administration see that these restrictions that you’re putting to make it harder for me to own a gun or harder for me to take that where I need to be is actually just making my kids and I less safe?” she asked.

… Obama also contended that having a gun might not increase an individual’s safety.

“There are always questions as to whether or not having a firearm in the home protects you from that kind of violence,” the president said. “And I’m not sure we can resolve that — people argue it both sides. What is true is that you have to be pretty well-trained in order to fire a weapon against someone who is assaulting you and catches you by surprise. What is also true is always that possibility that firearm in the home leads to a tragic accident.”

He might as well have just told the little woman to sit down and let the men handle the big-boy talk. What an insulting jerk… but then, what else does he have but insults and condescension, considering he doesn’t have facts?
