Sen. Elect Marsha Blackburn on How U.S. Moves Forward from CA Shooting: 'Protect Second Amendment'

Source: Mediate



by Ken Meyer | Nov 8th, 2018, 2:45 pm

Tennessee Senator-elect Marsha Blackburn (R) says securing gun rights should be the very first thing America does in light of the Wednesday night massacre in Thousand Oaks, CA.

During an interview with Fox News’ Sandra Smith, Blackburn brought up the Borderline Bar and Grill shooting that left 12 victims dead, including a police sergeant. When asked what the country needs to do in light of the mass shootings that have taken place throughout the year, Blackburn immediately launched into a defense of the Second Amendment.

“What we do is say how do we make certain that we protect the Second Amendment and protect our citizens. We have always done that in this country.”


Blackburn went on to discuss mental health issues while remarking that she finds the situation “absolutely heartbreaking” and adding her thoughts and prayers to the victims.

19. That what it will take unfortunately.

Some rightwing Senator’s kid will have to be killed in a mass shooting by a dumbfuck with an AR-15 before the Republicans will do anything even remotely meaningful.

3. There is no threat to the second amendment as far as I know,

at least not a serious one. The gun lobby is extremely powerful in this country. Not only do they have favor with every Republican in Congress, not a few Dems are influenced by them as well.

14. Reckon she's an ACLU member?

Last I heard they do a damn fine job protecting the 2nd amendment and the rest of the Constitution too. But probably not and you’re probably closer to the truth. With Republicans it’s all about the benefit to the business (gun lobby) and people be damned.

5. Why is Trump 'allowing' violence done to Americans?

Why is Trump 'allowing' violence done to Americans?

When Trump accepted the GOP nomination:

"I have a message for all of you: the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end," he said. "Beginning on January 20th, 2017, safety will be restored."

10. Keep them scared, clinging to their guns and bibles...

It's a winning strategy for Rethugs with white, under educated, rural / ex-burb voters.

18. Marsha is correct, protect the second amendment

especially the part that says "well regulated".

"A well regulated militia, being necessary for a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed".

These second amendment folks always leave the well regulated part out.

20. Hey Blackburn in your delusion of self righteous, and to show how you lack any fucking

empathy....................

Let me give you a clue of how fucking unqualified you are to be any position of power and your right wing fascist mentality of second amendment......................

This is the month of Thanksgiving, a sheriff officer and 12 other people will not, and let me repeat this so that any of your right wing trolls come on this site, understand this........................those human beings will not be sitting at a dinner on that day enjoying and remembering family members or talking about going and doing something with there family or friends getting ready for the next month..................................so FUCK YOU again........................


You are just like that asshole sitting in the white house, he has no empathy, and your as much has a narcissistic malignant psychopath has he is .....................and for the next 6 years whenever you get up to speak in the senate.....................people should be reminded that you have no fucking empathy...........................and you hide behind your lack of worthless second amendment BULLSHIT..................


November 3, 2020 cannot get here fast enough.....................
