See a lot of this is -- surprising response from a Colorado State senator -- -- -- Two female rape survivor Amanda Collins listen to this exchange.
This wanna say that -- Actually statistics -- not on your side even if Hewitt had a -- The Colorado great coalition again -- filing says that just went for every.
For every one woman who used a handgun to kill someone in self defense 83 were murdered.
By them respectfully senator.
-- and now without a doubt in my mind at some point I would have been able to stop my attack by using my my -- -- Security had a weapon of his own -- in mind.
Well that young woman a -- Collins joined us on FOX & Friends on Friday and had this to say about how she should be able to protect yourself.
A dangerous -- -- -- act and they're talking -- about all the things that winning can deal to reduce their risk.
And I I talked about the experience I had in martial arts training and everything that I had then to reduce Perez.
To show them that that's holidays is risk reduction and that's not a gearing heat.
And the -- -- and my choice in how I want to protect myself should not be mandated by the government.
So should lawmakers decide how you get to defend yourself from a violent attack with us now is Jennifer allow -- she's the executive vice president of I am safe.
-- a certified self defense instructor Jennifer thanks for being here and kidnapping what do you think when you hear that exchange that's up a Colorado lawmaker who doesn't want.
Women well really anyone to be -- to be on college campuses with a gun.
And then a victim here who was on the University of Nevada campus when she was sexually assaulted saying that she sure wishes she had had a gun.
You know it's I think it's disgraceful you really -- in a position where you've got a senator -- -- saying.
Women are are almost incapable of learning a skill set and that skill -- being hot -- to properly carry a firearm if they choose to do that.
And use -- for self defense because what lawmakers saying is that statistics are not on women's side that it's more likely women will be victimized and be able to shoot a gun is that -- you know it I I can find a statistic heard just about anything I like to point out that.
Actually in 91%.
If and -- The an attacker approaches somebody who is armed they will 91% of the time break off that attack.
So and if you can always find another statistic this young woman who was victimized she said that she hadn't done all the right things she actually didn't know self defense threat she had got taken Taekwondo.
She just was overpowered.
Absolutely and that can happen at one of the things we say -- I -- -- -- that that's one of many tools that you can have on your side and and the other thing too is training and a Dojo is very different than a street encounter or for an attack of that kind it's highly unpredictable.
It's very violent and it's a very quick kind of interaction so.
Very different from some minutes and in a controlled studio and obviously senator didn't realize maybe the difference indeed Jennifer -- I'll tweet out of -- your recommendations for how women.
Can best protect themselves thanks so much for coming in -- expertise.
