Rep. Trey Gowdy (S-RC) is a conservative hero and former prosecutor. And when he saw Democrats in the House of Representatives throw a temper tantrum about gun legislation this week, he decided to tell them exactly what he thinks!
The problem with the bill is Democrats want to vote on a full ban of firearm sales to people on the terrorist watch list, without recourse or due process for those wrongly put on the list. The Senate has already rejected this anti-gun legislation.
Because Democrats couldn’t get what they wanted, they decided to act like the “Black Lives Matter” movement and disrupt the House chamber while violating their rules of decorum. They shoved down opposition, and refused to leave until they got what they wanted.
And while it received plenty of media attention, Gowdy went on Facebook to ask the most important question: How does their actions make America any safer?
Gowdy’s Facebook post is going viral, and already has more than 64,000 “likes” and 33,000 “shares” on Facebook as of Friday afternoon!
“Democrat members are certainly free to stage a sit-in and shut down House floor activities as they have done,” Gowdy wrote. “What would be infinitely more productive would be asking this administration and the Department of Justice in particular why prosecutions of current gun law violations has decreased under their watch.”
“There are already broad categories of persons prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition and those lists go largely without prosecution,” he reminded his colleagues from across the aisle.
“Now House Democrats are asking for yet another list of persons — this time without any due process rights — so this administration can fail to enforce that list of laws too. How does that make us safer?”
Gowdy just exposed Democrats in a huge way. There are plenty of gun laws on the books already, and yet they are unenforced. Simply protesting and fundraising off the childish effort doesn’t save one life or stop one Islamic terrorist attack.
Democrats should be ashamed of themselves.
