What offers better protection — a gun or a rape whistle?

Radio host Cam Edwards talks to Amanda Collins, a woman who was brutally raped in October of 2007 at the University of Nevada-Reno. At the time, she possessed both a concealed carry permit and a 9mm Glock. She wasn’t carrying the night she was attacked because to do so would have been illegal — she was walking on a college campus — a “gun free zone.”

“I was legislated into being a victim,” she says.

Her attacker went on to rape two other women and murder a third before he was finally caught and brought to justice.

In this interview, she describes the incident which occurred within sight of a police station just 50 feet away. That, plus the fact that she had a second-degree karate black belt at the time didn’t help her. She also responds to the recent comments made about campus rape by Colorado State Rep. Joe Salazar.

Pierce Morgan was offered to have Collins appear on his CNN program to debate the Second Amendment and the efficacy of gun-free zones, but he declined.

This interview is both chilling and heartbreaking.

    … legal or illegal, "shall not be infringed" means what it says. Women, carry your weapons, train with them and if they try to attack you, light em up. Better to explain in court why you canceled a rapists stamp than how you were violated by an animal. We are 100% behind you!

    Suppressing the truth eventually backfires!

  3. Albert Shalhoub says:

    When being attacted a woman should say wait I hav to get my whistle. How stupid is that, has this man been recalled yet?

    Send Salazar an email. What a piece of work. Just think of the idiots who live in his district. CO voted to make all campuses gun-free. Send the Governor an email.

    How stupid are they. Two mass murder events occurred in 2 gun-free zones in CO. Beck says Soros is funding this legislation to break the Mtn States and I think he's right.

    'Well Regulated Militia' means what it says. Which one are you in?

    I'm glad you like the photo of my Glock 19 above, but I don't really appreciate it being used without asking, AND you cropped the bottom off that had the text "this is a rape whistle" with my logo.

    This is the original –
