Congressman Louie Gohmert (R, TX) confronted Democrats during their gun control sit-in [Wednesday] night, shouting instead about the threat of radical Islam.
“Radical Islam killed these people!” he yelled during a speech by [Congressman (D, CA) Brad Sherman…referring to the Orlando terror attack.
A…Democrat…participating in the temper tantrum sit-in shouted back Don’t let terrorists have a gun! which only shows the disingenuousness of the House Democrats, if not their outright dishonesty. That response is only a cynically offered straw man, and the Democrats should be encouraged to keep their dollies to themselves.
No one is arguing for letting terrorists—Islamic or otherwise—have guns. The question, as Democrats know full well, is confronting and destroying terrorists like those that inflicted Orlando, San Bernardino, and on and on. The first step in this is recognizing terrorism when it occurs and not pretending these are gun crimes so excuses for disarming Americans can be manufactured. The second step in recognizing this is recognizing who the terrorists are and not pretending they’re isolated gun-toting criminals. The third step in this is protecting the rights of honest Americans’ ability to defend themselves.
But as Gohmert put in a subsequent interview with Fox and Friends [emphasis added]
They were violating just a whole myriad of rules, and it didn’t matter at all.
Indeed, nor rule nor law matters to Democrats when they are inconvenient to Democrats out to make political points for personal political gain.
Keep it in mind this fall.
