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.
