Guns

Pro-Gun Nutcase Louie Gohmert is Afraid of Guns

Guns make everything safer, right?

That's what most Republican including Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) say, but Gohmert has canceled town hall appearances because people might have guns.

"At this time there are groups from the more violent strains of the leftist ideology, some even being paid, who are preying on public town halls to wreak havoc and threaten public safety," Gohmert said in a statement.

"Threats are nothing new to me and I have gotten my share as a felony judge. However, the House Sergeant at Arms advised us after former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords was shot at a public appearance, that civilian attendees at Congressional public events stand the most chance of being harmed or killed—just as happened there."

I am not aware of any "leftist" groups that openly carry rifles, or carry weapons at all, to political protests or town halls.

In any event, Gohmert should have nothing to worry about because, as we all know, guns make every single situation and location safer. Churches, airports, schools and even fucking mental institutions are made safer by the proliferation of guns according to Republicans in Gohmert's home state of Texas.

If the presence of guns ensures the safety of actual mental patients, why wouldn't they make Gohmert safer?

Pardon my French, but Republicans are all cognitively-dissonant, incoherent, hypocritical morons.

  • This guy advocated more guns as a way to prevent mass murders. He likened limits to magazine sizes to “bestiality.” He said that the Second Amendment “is for our protection — and the founders’ quotes make that very, very clear — including against a government that would run amok.”

    And now it turns out his spine turns yellow when he thinks about people actually having guns in his vicinity.

    Maybe he just figured out that he’s part of the government that he thinks guns are around to stop.

    All he needs to be safe is his “one way wall”.

  • Aynwrong

    It’s not the guns he’s afraid of.

    Oh my God. The hypocrisy. It is astounding. In Wisconsin you cannot legally tape record the goings on at the capital from the gallery. But you can bring in a firearm because …..safety. Or something.

    Gohmert cancelled because he’s chickenshit scared that people would be asking honest, legitimate questions about what Republicans like Dumbass Gohmert plan to do about the ACA/Obamacare. Gohmert needs to be dragged by his heels and face the music about his and his party’s evil ignorance.

    If this moron had any stones and actually believed the 2A worship he believes in he would welcome a very public spectacle in some guns-for-all zone in the shithole he comes from. If he did this one thing is for sure. He would be far more likely to be harmed by one of his supporters than he ever would from one of his critics.
