GOP rep vows from now on he’ll be packing heat, and libs just can’t wrap their brains around it

Republicans prefer not to be sitting ducks for any future crazed gunman, and it has many on the left confused.

New York Rep. Chris Collins a strong supporter of President Donald Trump, doesn’t normally carry a firearm, but the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise and others in Virginia during a baseball practice has changed his mind.

“You look at the vulnerability – I can assure you from this day forward, I have a carry permit, I will be carrying when I’m out and about,” he told WKBW.

“On a rare occasion I’d have my gun in the glove box or something, but it’s going to be in my pocket from this day forward,” he said. “It’s got all the punch you need.”

He added that he would be asking for armed security for his future events.

Rep. Barry Loudermilk expressed similar pro-Second Amendment sentiments in response to the shooting.

He told the Washington Post that the shooter, James Hodgkinson, “wouldn’t have gotten too far” if the shooting occurred in his home state of Georgia.

“I had a staff member who was in his car maybe 20 yards behind the shooter, who was pinned in his car, who back in Georgia carries a 9-millimeter in his car,” he said.

Loudermilk said the gun laws in D.C. prevent members of congress and their staff from carrying firearms to protect themselves.

“He had a clear shot at him. But here, we’re not allowed to carry any weapons here,” he said.

The shooting happened in Virginia, where gun laws are less strict, but the fact that the representatives came from D.C. made it tough to carry weapons.

“Most of us are here in D.C., so how do you have the gun here and just transport it to Virginia?” he said. “I think we need to look at some kind of reciprocity for members here.”

The pro-gun sentiment stumped leftists on social media. Uber-regressive Salon did a whole article on how crazy it is Republicans don’t want to sit back and die when confronted by a madman.

“Even now, GOP won’t listen!” Salon blared.

They also carry wallets. Quick ban wallets. Mobsters carry them.

Some on social media attempted to explain it.
