While the Left is busy beating the gun control drum, those of us not so easily swayed by their emotional, baseless arguments are shaking our heads. Although not surprising, watching liberals dance on top of the dead is something one can never get used to.
However, while they’re busy lying to the public and trying to increase their power, one GOP congressman, who’s experienced a crazy shooter first-hand, is blowing holes in their gun-grabbing agenda.
As reported at the Daily Mail, in a Fox News interview, GOP Rep. Steve Scalise talked about being shot by a left-wing nutjob and how the incident has done nothing but strengthen his belief in the Second Amendment.
You may not remember it, considering how effectively the left-wing press swept the incident under the rug, but earlier this year, a crazed liberal shot up congressional Republicans while they were practicing softball.
While no one was killed, several were wounded, including Scalise, who’s been out of commission since. One would think that members of Congress being attacked by a liberal radical would be a big deal, but it’s a story that few non-conservatives probably remember.
During the interview Tuesday, Scalise said that the massacre in Las Vegas and his own shooting haven’t swayed his pro-gun stance.
“I think it’s fortified it,” the House Majority whip told Fox News. He then went on to say that passing legislation in the midst of tragedy would be wrong, and that the focus should be on helping the victims recover.
“Because first of all, you’ve got to recognize that when there’s a tragedy like this, the first thing we should be thinking about is praying for the people who were injured and doing whatever we can to help them, to help law enforcement,” Scalise said.
He then talked about the various bill ideas being thrown out by the Left, highlighting the fact that none of them would have prevented this or most other attacks they use to push their agenda.
“Those bills wouldn’t have done anything to stop this. I mean the gunmen actually cleared background checks. So to promote some kind of gun control, I think, is the wrong way to approach this,” he said.
Scalise then reminded everyone of the fact that personal guns are used every day to protect the lives of citizens, yet those stories are hardly ever mention by the media precisely because they want folks to believe that such events don’t exist.
“Every single day in America, regular citizens that just have a passionate belief in the Second Amendment, that have their own guns, use guns every single day to protect themselves against criminals. And those stories never get told or hardly ever get told, but that’s a different side of the story that I think is important. And people use guns way more to defend themselves from criminals,” Scalise added.
Tens of millions of folks own guns, and there are over 300 million of them floating around the US. Yet as these numbers increase, gun crime continues to go down. But this fact won’t stop the Left, as they’re out to disarm us. They want to render us powerless to deter the government leviathan from continuing its growth and intrusion into our lives. Which is why conservatives must not accept their false paradigms and emotional arguments on the issue if we want to continue enjoying the freedoms our forefathers fought for.
