Authorities say a woman and her baby are dead following a two-vehicle crash in western Michigan that left the baby's 7-year-old sibling in critical condition.
Colorado stands to lose its status as a premier hunting and sports-shooting destination if the governor signs gun-control bills now rolling through the state legislature, according to an executive producer for the Outdoor Channel.
On Tuesday, rape victim Amanda Collins told a horrific story to a Colorado Senate committee considering the repeal of the Colorado law that allows concealed carry on college campuses. Ms. Collins was raped at her Nevada college that banned concealed carry. Although she had a legal permit, she was assaulted because she had obeyed the law and left her firearm at home. While she obeyed the Nevada legislature’s no-guns-allowed policy, her rapist did not. He held a gun to her head as she was viciously attacked, as are 20 percent to 25 percent of college women who suffer rape or attempted rape, according to the CDC. Her rapist went on to rape two other women, and he murdered his third victim.
A Democratic state senator in Colorado has come under fire for telling a rape victim that the assault would likely had been worse had she been armed with a gun.
Ms. Collins told the committee she was confident she would have been able to stop the attack and thus the victimization of the other women if she’d had her firearm.
