Steve Scalise’s Powerful 2A Argument Neutered by Dismissive Democrats

Ignorance may be bliss for the democrats, but a half-truth is still a lie…even if it occurs before Congress.

Thankfully, a massive majority of Americans have never been involved in a shootout, a gunfight, or a revolutionary war against a tyrannical government.

The sheer terror that one would face in any of these situations would be enough to change your views on the world around you, likely immediately, and irreversibly.  There are epiphany-laden lessons within these horrifying moments, however, and we would be wise to listen to those who have had the misfortune to experience them.

For instance, the well-manicured Constitution of the United States, which was written by men who not only faced a prolonged hail of British bullets, but were called upon to protect the rest of this burgeoning nation as well…including its women, children, elderly, and impaired.  This experience was so profound that it spawned one of the most powerful and well-articulated pieces of literature ever created – and one that includes the all-important Second Amendment.

And while few sane Americans are going to deny that the Founding Fathers were correct, we live in a nation today which is afraid of such harsh truths…particularly as it pertains to our right to bear arms.

This is precisely what Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise is worried about, and why he appeared on Breitbart Radio to explain the democratic blackballing of his own harrowing experience.

Scalise said, “They’re moving a gun control bill this week. The Democrats have, with their hard shift to the left, they’re already moving towards taking away the right to law-abiding citizens to have a gun. So we’re having a hearing on gun violence in the new Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee, and Doug Collins, the Republican on our side, wanted me to be one of the witnesses to testify.”

Scalise explained, “Historically, if a member of Congress — Republican or Democrat — wants to testify before a committee and they have something unique to say, we provide that venue from him to do it. We’ve done it in the past when were were in the majority, and Democrats in the previous majority did. For whatever reason, the Democrat in charge of the committee says he won’t let me testify in that same forum. [He is] trying to block my testimony on gun violence. How ridiculous is that?”

Scalise added, “The irony is, can you or anybody else name who was on that panel that day? Typically, these congressional hearings get no attention. But when he banned me and tried to stop me from testifying, I ended up getting a lot more national attention for my message.”

Then the formerly targeted Congressman laid it out even more plainly.

Scalise went on, “Look, it was people with guns who saved my life. Because the bad guys out there, they’re going to find a way — whether it’s knives or guns or bombs — they’re going to find a way to do what they do, with or without new rules that block people that are law-abiding citizens.”

Ignorance may be bliss for the democrats, but a half-truth is still a lie…even if it occurs before Congress.

Huh?

Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have given their lives in the military so that we can be free. It certainly is not a day for politics. But “crooked” Hillary Clinton just couldn’t help herself. From Daily Wire: On Monday morning, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton decided to celebrate Memorial Day, which honors the veterans who have fought for America, with a tweet that didn’t acknowledge their sacrifice but instead trumpeted her approval of New York governor Andrew Cuomo for his “responsible decisions to keep people safe.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/1264912356834004992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1264912356834004992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fhillary-celebrates-memorial-day-by-lauding-cuomos-responsible-decisions-ignores-military Here’s President Trump’s address from Arlington National Cemetery… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1264964171457757184?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1264964171457757184&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftrump-praises-veterans-projects-optimism-in-memorial-day-public-address From AP News: NEW YORK (AP) — More than 4,500 recovering coronavirus patients were sent to New York’s already vulnerable nursing homes under a controversial state directive that was ultimately scrapped amid criticisms it was accelerating the nation’s deadliest outbreaks, according to a count by The Associated Press. AP compiled its own tally to find out how many COVID-19 patients were discharged from hospitals to nursing homes under the March 25 directive after New York’s Health Department declined to release its internal survey conducted two weeks ago. It says it is still verifying data that was incomplete. CONTINUED: Whatever the full number, nursing home administrators, residents’ advocates and relatives say it has added up to a big and indefensible problem for facilities that even Gov. Andrew Cuomo — the main proponent of the policy — called “the optimum feeding ground for this virus.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNflR2Ia7Hc WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=189&v=APHIYCsHqV0&feature=emb_logo https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1251181566740619265?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1251181566740619265&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F04%2Fnothing-sitting-home-watching-tv-governor-cuomo-attacks-president-trump-rips-cdcs-bogus-predictions-video%2F

Dem Governor’s Husband Demanded Special Treatment After Whitmer Told People to Stay Away From Lake

Facepalm!

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) seems to be making headlines for all the wrong reasons, as of late. Therefore, it only makes sense that Joe Biden’s team is considering her for VP. Check out what Whitmer’s husband was recently caught doing, via Detroit News: The owner of a Northern Michigan dock company says Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s husband wanted his boat placed in the water before the Memorial Day weekend as Whitmer urged residents not to rush to the region. No longer visible to the public, Facebook posts from NorthShore Dock LLC and its owner, Tad Dowker, focused on what Dowker said was a request last week by Whitmer’s husband, Marc Mallory. The posts have drawn the attention of Republican state lawmakers, who said the Democratic governor’s family may not be following her guidance for the rest of the state. LOOK: https://twitter.com/RyanMaue/status/1265082748886228994?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1265082748886228994&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwhitmers-husband-asked-for-special-treatment-in-getting-boat-on-water-after-she-urged-people-to-not-go-to-area-report-says More from TDW: NorthShore Dock LLC later wrote a post about the incident, saying: “We simply let him know— Sorry, we have a lot going on with very little time to get it done. We will get you in line to install as soon as we can, ALL our customers are valued and we cannot place you in front of others who scheduled earlier.” […] Whitmer also faced intense backlash after her administration awarded taxpayer-funded coronavirus stimulus funds to Democrat groups, a move that she later canceled. Later, when pressed about the issue at a press conference, Whitmer had to read from notes as she refused to identify who made the decision to award the contracts to those groups.
