While several dozen House Democrats engaged in a sit-in on the House floor, the awesome Rep. Louie Gohmert let them have it!
‘Radical Islam killed those people!’ Gohmert scolded as the
children Democrats tried to blame the Orlando massacre on a lack of gun control!
‘Well, this had been going on for hours. It should have been stopped hours before. Even some of the long term Democrats have said, “this is really getting out of hand, you guys need to take over and stop the chaos, this is a little scary,”‘ Gohmert scolded.
It all started when 4 insane gun control measures that would have not stopped the massacre if they had already been implemented, failed on Capitol Hill.
The bills were designed to strengthen background checks and prevent people on the “no fly” list from getting guns.
The sit-in was led by Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat who tried to shame the Republicans for ignoring the blood of the innocent.
If someone had been packin’ in that club, we could have saved many of the innocent, Mr.Lewis, more guns, less crime! Gohmert tried hard to make that clear, but they wouldn’t listen!
The Daily Mail reported on the incident:
“By evening, 168 House Democrats – out of 188 – and 34 Senate Democrats joined the protest, according to the House minority leader’s office. One after another, they spoke of the need for gun control and talked of constituents who had been killed.
Scattered around the House floor were signs reading ‘Disarm Hate.’ Visitors watched from the galleries.
Congress remains gridlocked over gun control, a divide even more pronounced in a presidential election year. The sit-in had the feel of a 1960s-style protest, as some lawmakers sat on the floor, others in their seats.”
When are these liberals going to get it? Never of course! But the homicide rate in the U.S. is actually at a 51-year low. Over the last 20 years, gun ownership has increased by 141%. (Thank you Obama, you helped!)
The homicide rate has dropped by half over that same time frame!
The REAL problem in Orlando was that it was a gun free zone and the terrorist did not get the memo! Thugs do not follow rules and the innocent were helpless to defend themselves! As Gohmert stated, the REAL problem is Islamic Extremists.
The liberals CONTINUE to lie! I have said it before and I will say it again: ALL the massacres that happen are in Gun Free Zones!!!
The state with the worst gun homicide crime stats? California! Guess what state has the most stringent Brady Gun Laws? CALIFORNIA!
The city with the worst gun homicide crime stats? Chicago! Guess what city has the most stringent Gun Laws? CHICAGO!!!
Insanity at it’s finest!
