The rape survivor and mother of two who questioned President Barack Obama on guns at a Thursday town hall said she was not satisfied with the answer she received.
Kimberly Corban, who survived a 2006 rape while studying at a Colorado college, spoke with Fox News host Sean Hannity Friday night.
“Were you happy with the president’s answer?” Hannity asked.
“You know, I have to say, it was kind of a non-answer, more so than anything. I feel like I wasn’t necessarily listened to,” Corban said.
At the event, she asked Obama, “Why can’t your administration see that these restrictions that you’re putting to make it harder for me to own a gun or harder for me to take that where I need to be is actually just making my kids and I less safe?”
The president replied that nothing he had proposed “would make it harder” for anyone to purchase a firearm and contended that owning a firearm might not increase an individual’s safety.
“He knew how he was going to respond,” Corban said of the answer. “I didn’t go into that town hall thinking I was going to change his mind by any means. It was more about starting a larger discussion with the country about sexual assault, victimization and my right — and everyone else’s right — to choose how we defend ourselves.”
