CNN recently held a town hall event where House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi received a question and comment from a survivor of the horrifying Santa Fe High School shooting and boy oh boy did she get a good roasting.
The teen asked Pelosi about her stance against funding armed guards, noting her building was secure.
There’s hope for the youth of America after all.
“Where does the government stand on arming and training our teachers, much in the way we use air marshals on airplanes?” asked Santa Fe senior Alexis Wilson.
Pelosi offered sympathies to Wilson over the shooting but concluded that she and her Democrat colleagues “do not think that is the solution.”Trending:
“Following a tragedy like this all we want to do is pray for the families, but I do not support arming teachers and the rest,” Pelosi stated.
Cuomo, moderating the town hall event, pressed Pelosi about her seeming hypocrisy on the issue.Advertisement - story continues below
“There’s a little bit of an either-or problem with how we’re trying to approach solutions … The building we’re in now, the building you work in, the point of entry there is secure,” he said. “You don’t walk in with a trench coat with a shotgun underneath your jacket, and get in. It doesn’t happen, you know this.”
“Why can’t that be part of the equation?” Cuomo asked. “Talk about universal background checks, fine. Talk about mental health, how to identify them, money for treatment. But why either-or? Why not make the schools safer?”
Pelosi answered by saying “children should not have to be worried about going to school as a place that violence can occur. You have to get to systemically stop people from having guns who shouldn’t have guns in the first place.”
Did you notice how revealing that answer is? Pelosi, a hardcore leftist, shifts from taking actual actionable steps to stop school shootings and make kids safer, to finding some way to limit gun rights.
This should tell you all you need to know about what lies underneath all of that “we don’t want to take your guns” rhetoric. The truth of the matter is, they do want your guns. Pelosi’s statement is all but an admission of that.
This is why we must continue to fight for gun rights passionately and try to prevent these folks from being able to limit the Second Amendment so that law abiding citizens can continue to exercise their right to defend their lives and property.
