New York GOP Felon Michael Grimm Shows True Gun-Grabber Colors (NY “GOP” Alert!)
If there’s a takeaway from this, it’s gun owners must keep in mind that just because a politician is part of the GOP does not mean he is worth any more than a Blue State Democrat when it comes to the Second Amendment. Republicans, like Mark Kirk, Dan Coats and Peter King are every bit the self-made enemies of the right to keep and bear arms as Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein. Politically-active gun owners need to keep that in mind and refuse to financially support the party through the RNC, which expends resources electing and retaining seats for such hostiles, and confine their contributions to individuals who actually prove they are worthy to receive them.
If there’s any other takeaway, it’s that a person who behaves like a thug deserves to be treated like one. A threat to throw someone off a balcony should be regarded with all seriousness, and should have resulted in consequences. There are Americans who aren’t impressed with bullies, and who won’t go gentle over that good balcony, nor will they let some oath-breaking felon with anger management and ethics issues dictate what guns he’ll allow them to have.
