The gun debate is heating up in Colorado, with politicians from all over the state trying to come up with a way to handle gun violence in a post-Newtown world. Two Colorado Democrats, specifically, have suggested that carrying ballpoint pens or learning judo are better alternatives than carrying a gun.
"There are other methods of self defense ... judo or what have you," he added, declaring that guns are not the only way to defend oneself.
"There's mace, what about a taser? The buddy system," Rep. Paul Rosenthal said, addressing the state legislature on why Colorado should ban students from carrying guns on campus.
