Rape Survivor Who Questioned Obama on Guns Reveals Harsh Thoughts on the President's Answer

"Were you happy with the president's answer?"

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."
