See no evil. Hear no evil
As to be expected, many activists, like Bob Brigham (surprise!), are quickly attacking Sen. Baucus and Tester for being silent on the issue of the horrific Newton School massacre. That’s true. They should be coming out and they should be saying they support responsible gun control legislation. That makes sense and it needs to be done.
What’s bizarre is that those same activists are completely silent when it comes to Governor Schwetizer’s recent shocking comments.
Schweitzer appeared on Aaron Flint’s popular conservative talk show and said the following:
“I don’t want to sound like a terrorist here, but you give me 20 gallons of propane- I can do a lot of damage in a very short period of time,” said Schweitzer during Tuesday morning’s Voices of Montana statewide radio talk show. “If there are evil people they can use guns, or as we’ve seen in Russia, they can also use things like propane. You can use natural gas. Five gallons of gasoline and imagine what can happen.
They plan to bring that legislation back, but that actually wouldn’t change anything thing that happened back there in Connecticut in terms of what gun was used and what types of guns could be used.
This is evil and it has everything to do with mental illness and look I’m gonna pick on somebody right now. You wanna pick on somebody? How about those video game manufacturers, where an entire generation are glued to a screen for 6 or 8 hours a day while they are poking buttons and blowing other people up and shooting them in the face.”
Are you serious? He’s blaming this:
I thought we were past this kind of nonsense.
For someone who is constantly celebrated has having a “liberal backbone,” I’m hearing a lot of bogus NRA talking points. It’s time for all politicians to grow backbones and support real, responsible gun control – even in Montana.
