No guns allowed at GOP meeting blasting “gun free zones” [View all]
I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning. GOP Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas, bff of gun-nut and NRA board member Ted Nugent, is holding a very special meeting in the US Capitol building next week to blast President Obama and the entire notion of “gun free zones.”
Stockman’s meeting is being called ”The Fallacy of Gun Free School Zones.” He’s offered legislation repealing the federal gun free zone law that protects schools.
So where is Stockman holding his meeting blasting the dangers of gun free zones? In the US Capitol building, a gun free zone.
No guns will be allowed at Stockman’s meeting in order to guarantee Rep. Stockman’s safety.
Oh the irony.
Wouldn’t Stockman be even safer if everyone attended his meeting armed? I’m so confused.
Not to mention, I worked on the Hill, and we held meetings all the time off the Hill. Stockman could have easily thrown this event at some place in town that permits guns. But he didn’t. He chose to have a PR event vilifying gun-free zones at probably the second-most famous gun-free zone in America, after the White House.
