College rape victim: Why concealed carry is the only thing that could have helped Amanda Collins

Amanda Collins had her concealed carry permit, but it was illegal to carry on campus so she didn’t. She didn’t walk to the parking deck alone, she walked with friends. They split up only because they parked on different floors. She constantly scanned the parking deck for any possible problems. She was less than 50 feet from the campus police department but they were off duty. She’s even a second-degree blackbelt.

She did everything right, but she was still raped. If she’d had a whistle it wouldn’t have mattered she said because there was no one to hear it. And call boxes were only installed after she was raped. The only thing that kept her from defending herself was that her 2nd amendment right had been taken away from her on campus.

Also, Piers Morgan refused to have her own his show to tell her story in support of gun rights. Imagine that. But you can listen to it below as she tells her story and refutes the idiotic comments coming from policy makers (h/t: Townhall)

Here’s an older video where the NRA profiled Amanda. She tells her story in this one too:

And lest you forget, Amanda is also one who has been advocating for guns on college campuses.

    Thanks for posting this for us! It’s horrible that she had to go through that & for stupid idiots not to let her tell her story. 🙁

  • She’s a hero for telling her story. God Bless her for this. I can only imagine how many other young women would have been saved the grief, trauma and nightmare if only they’d been allowed to use their God Given right to carry.
    Lord this was hard to listen to. Thank you Scoop though. It needs to be told and go viral.

    • Patriot077

      Yes, she is a hero for using her strong voice to stand tall for everyone. What a fine young woman she is to set aside her own pain and embarrassment to speak up. God bless her and keep her.

        Shame on Piers Morgan for stifling her voice. It goes to show us how much of an intolerant hypocrite he is. A real fraud, not qualified to be front and centre in broadcasting. He would qualify to be an islamic terrorist. Whatever you do, don’t support his show by tuning in. If you do, see who the advertisers are, write to them, and tell them about this young brave woman who was raped, and Piers refusing to have her on his show. Tell the advertisers if they continue to advertise on his show, you will not buy their product. It’s the only way to get their attention–by hitting them in the pocketbook.

        • OneThinDime

          And remind those advertisers about the benefits of social media to communicate the message to millions through email, FaceBook and Twitter. It’s amazing how wide a Twitter message can go with retweeting by followers.

          • 1endtimes2020

            Excellent idea. Thanks for reminding me of that power.

            • OneThinDime

              There are great conservative groups on Twitter. Would be great if more joined and helped to spread their great ideas! (hint, hint)

  • Even before listening to this, after listening to the democrats in CO and and Biden, with their LAME advice for women, how can one get to a safe zone, a call box, or a police station once you’ve been accosted? Stupidity! And they say that republicans hate women?

    Dems want to disarm women, they support higher risks of breast cancer in women by support of abortions, birth control (as a right, of course…but this also raises the risk of breast and uterine cancer, along with the risk of thromboses that can go anywhere in the body, etc.). I’m too angry to think straight right now, but my point is that caring men would want their women protected in every way possible.

    • johnfromjersey

      I couldn’t have said it better myself. My youngest daughter is currently in nursing school and I’m pretty sure she will one day come home and tell me how medically bad birth control and abortions really are to the women that utilize them.

  • OneThinDime

    What else can you say. This woman should be on every TV show nationwide, testifying before Congress and every state Legislature.

  • PVG

    Send this to Beckle, Scoop!

    • Joe

      Won’t make a difference – He is paid to be an a$$

      • OneThinDime

        And Fox and the GOP took the blame for Beckel’s remarks. That’s the problem with their messaging! They should have fired him, put out a press release stating they do not approve of his sexist treatment of women. They would have raised at least 5 points in popularity but no roll over and get slapped on the other side instead.

      • hbnolikeee

        I think he fell into it and is a natural a$$hole.

  • Joe

    I am happy she is now safe and hopefully prepared and able to pass the message on

    I can’t imagine the experience she had – too bad the bastard who attacked her got away

    The liberals will not accept this story – even if it happens to one of their own – Very Sad

  • Thanks Scoop! I feel so bad for this young woman, but it seems that she is turning what was a horrible tragedy into what may end up being a positive thing, by showing us just how precious our rights really are, and just how much effort or rights are worth expending to keep them…

  • JohnCraven

    I hope somebody at FOXNews shows this to Bob Beckel since he doesn’t think rape on campus happens much at all.

    Amanda Collins’ story is more proof that leftist politicians like Joe Salazar can take their gun grabbing legislation and shove it where the sun doesn’t shine.

    I see that due to extreme pressure (from the public?), Washington state legislators pulled the trial balloon crapola on having law enforcement enter gun owners’ homes once a year to check on proper “gun storage” from their gun control legislation.

    Global authoritarians want to take guns away from honest, law-abiding citizens. It’s either their way or no way. That’s their version of “changing hearts and minds”.

    The people of Colorado need to figuratively storm the Bastille NOW! Resist! Resist! Resist! The ill-conceived, feel-good junk that irresponsible leftist politicians want to try to push on the people must not see the light of day.

  • Conniption Fitz

    STATISTICS/FACTS/EVIDENCE ON RAPES (not that facts matter or mean a hill of beans to leftist gun control advocates):

    “In the early 1990′s a study concluded that 650 rapes a day were stopped because the victim was – or may have been – armed. But the number of women who carry, and the number of homes with guns, is much higher now.

    The latest prisoners surveys estimate that 3,600 rapes a day are never attempted because the victim either showed a gun, said she had a gun, or the rapist thought the victim had a gun for some other reason.

    So one way or the other, guns prevent 3,600 rapes a day, or more than 1.3 million rapes a year.”

  • Conniption Fitz

    Just so you know, IMO the law should be changed so that violent attack and gang rapists would face the death penalty even if rape is part of their despicable hellish religion.

    That would sober up a few woman-disrespecting dudes and teach them some respect/fear of God or at least cull the rapist herd substantially.

    As for campus rapes:
    Relationship rape is domestic violence and should be dealt with as assault. Girls should not live with guys before marriage or date guys who are violent and should not go to bars or frat parties alone…ever. Some risks aren’t worth taking. Bring back chaperones. Christian groups could provide chaperones, escorts and security for females on campuses. They could interview prospective dates and put the fear of GOD in them about how they should treat a woman. It would be a great ministry.
    Self-control and chastity before marriage means more self-control and faithfulness after marriage…more lasting marriages and stable homes.

      Just so you know, IMO the law should be changed so that violent attack and gang rapists would face the death penalty even if rape is part of their despicable hellish religion.

      Best recommendation of the day!

    • As this country moves away from the death penalty I don’t see that happening despite the fact it is a stellar idea.

    • HSmith

      I agree that rape should be a capital crime, but I think it would be best if the punishment were administered at the time of the attempted crime. 40 S&W would be my preferred method.

  • Sandra123456

    What part of “…shall not be infringed.” do Liberals everywhere not understand?

    If a place demands visitors be unarmed then that place better provide adequate armed security or be made to pay for injuries/death if something happens to a visitor.

    • Kordane

      They fail to understand everything after “…”

      Liberal: “Is not statist/communist! Does not compute!”

      • Sandra123456

        So true. LOL.

    • OneThinDime

      Remember the liberal party line is that the Constitution is old and is a “living document”

  • Leftists are always using childish names to falsely accuse Conservatives, Christians, and patriots. It might be worthwhile to use childish names to accuse Leftists because such accusations are the truthful results of their policies. For example, “Leftists are pro-rape.”

  • Kelly60

    My daughter’s tell me that this issue is again with the Student Senate on Texas A&M and even though the campus has the availability of Corpsmen who will walk you home or to another class, you still have to wait for them to arrive. Not only that, the percentage of conceal gun carry are small because you have to be 21 and the majority of students on campus are younger than that…she said it will probably pass after she graduates in May.

  • notsofastthere

    It really is pathetic that law abiding people, after being violated, still have to beg for permission to defend themselves.
    Obama, the politicians, state authorities, and criminals don’t abide by laws everyday. May be in this case we should follow their examples.

  • Haywoodjbl

    Why does ANYONE CARE what Piers Morgan has to say or do? He is a Celebrity Apprentice dude……he has never accomplished one thing of significance that would credibility to ANYTHING he says……

  • Another gun free zone strikes again.

  • I have listened to this twice now and it is just mind boggling to me. Of course the MSM wants to silence her. In reality they are victimizing her once again.

  • DebbyX

    That is a powerful account. Today our supreme leader, I’m talking about Gov. Malloy, the idiot from CT, has arbitrarily come out with his “common sense” gun control recommendations. That’s after appointing a panel to come up with “solutions” to gun violence that was due to present their recommendations the middle of next month. He just couldn’t wait to play Caesar. I am so sick and tired of these phony politicians I could scream (or cry).
