DENVER - Another Colorado Democrat has stoked the state's raging gun-control debate by challenging the argument that guns are needed for self-defense.
"As a woman, I have the right not to carry a gun and to feel safe on the streets, and that's what we provide for in the state legislature is for all of us in the state of Colorado — to feel safe on the streets without having to carry a gun," said Ms. Hullinghorst on the Web-based "Tim Caffrey Show."
"The thought that the only way we can protect ourselves is to wield our own weapon is completely absurd and an argument that I absolutely discount as frivolous," Ms. Hullinghorst said.
