It appears Colorado Democrats have some peculiar notions about guns and self-defense.

For instance, while legislators debated last Friday whether to ban conceal carry permits on college campuses, Democrat Congressman Paul Rosenthal suggested that the “buddy system” is a perfectly acceptable alternative to carrying a firearm.

He also said students could learn judo or buy pepper spray. Watch the video via Revealing Politics:

And then there’s Democrat Congressman Joe Salazar who said last week that campuses should ban guns because some women have itchy trigger fingers.

“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at,” he said.

“And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble and when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop — pop a round at somebody,” he added.

Seriously, Colorado, what’s going on over there?
