According to the White House’s recent report, the men who commit sexual assault often take more than one victim. The report referenced a study showing that among the male college students who admitted to attempted rape, 63 percent confessed to an average of six rapes. While only 7 percent of college males admitted to attempted rape, the majority were serial offenders. This subset of serially violent men is clearly bereft of morals or respect for the law. Thus, they will only be stopped by a threat stronger than a law scrolled on a piece of paper. Serial sex offenders need the threat of lethal force.

Whether the perpetrators of sexual assault are college students or not, they appear to be mentally unstable men who have a thirst for committing repeat violence. For example, the man who attacked Collins raped her at gunpoint and then continued to hurt more women: he kidnapped and raped a second woman and then raped and murdered a third woman.

When Fox’s Megyn Kelly asked Collins: “Why do you believe that if you had a firearm on you at that time that you may have prevented the rape?” Collins responded: “To be honest, with the way I was grabbed [from behind and then her attacker placed a gun to her temple], I don’t think I would have been able to prevent my attack from starting but … had I had been carrying that night … I know at some point during my attack I would have been able to stop my attack in progress.”

Collins testified against CO Bill (HB 1226) that would have banned concealed carry weapons—even by permit holders—on public college campuses including stadiums or arenas used by public campuses. During the her testimony, CO State Sen. Evie Hudak (D) told Collins: “…statistics are not on your side, even if you had had a gun…for every one woman who used a handgun to kill someone in self-defense, eighty-three were murdered by them.”

Collins responded: “Respectfully, Senator, you weren’t there. I know without a doubt in my mind, at some point I would have been able to stop my attack by using my firearm. He already had a weapon of his own. He didn’t need mine.”

It’s time for liberals like Obama who feign to help women fight against sexual abuse to start defending women’s God-given, Second Amendment right to bear arms and carry concealed. Abolish Gun Free Zones and support conceal carry permits on campus and we’ll have fewer sexual assaults.
