Colo. GOP wants Democrat's rape comments condemned

DENVER (AP) - Colorado Republicans say Democrats should denounce comments from a state lawmaker who said women may not know if they feel like they're in danger of being raped.

Republicans urged state Democratic leaders Tuesday to condemn the remarks that Rep. Joe Salazar made Friday during debate on a bill to ban concealed firearms on colleges. Salazar was arguing that guns don't make campuses safer, and that that's why colleges have call boxes, "because you just don't know who you're gonna be shooting at."

He added, "And you don't know if you feel like you're gonna be raped." Salazar apologized for the remarks Friday, but his comments got fresh traction when conservative blogs picked them up Monday.

Salazar apologized again Monday, saying "I'm sorry that I offended anyone."
