A Colorado Democratic state lawmaker is apologizing for a comment he made about rape after conservatives lambasted him for the remark, saying in a statement that he is “deeply sorry” if he “offended anyone.”
State Rep. Joe Salazar argued last week, during a Colorado House debate concerning concealed-carry permits on college campuses, that guns bring with them the possibility of shooting the wrong person, even “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 when you may actually not be.”
He clarified that statement on Monday.
“I’m sorry if I offended anyone,” he said.
