Rep Chumley: SC Victims "Waited Their Turn To Be Shot"

South Carolina state Rep. Bill Chumley (R) told CNN he thinks the nine victims of a shooting in a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, "waited their turn to be shot."

Chumley was defending the use of the Confederate flag at the South Carolina capitol grounds when he made the remarks, blaming "misuse and miseducation of the flag" for the debate over its use. Chumley argued access to guns, not the Confederate flag, is what South Carolina lawmakers should be focusing on in the aftermath of the massacre.

"These people sat in there and waited their turn to be shot," Chumley said. "That's sad. Somebody in there with a means of self-defense could've stopped this."

Bill requires women to recite Gettysburg Address while hopping on one foot 24 hours before abortion

Gov. FuckStick McGee

Women in Florida will have to wait 24 hours and make at least two appointments before getting an abortion under a bill that Gov. Rick Scott signed into law Wednesday.

HB 633 includes exceptions for victims of rape, incest, domestic violence and human trafficking, but those seeking abortions must provide proof of those situations with a police report or medical documents.

"We are blessed in the state of Florida to have a governor that stands for life," said Rep. Jennifer Sullivan, R-Mount Dora, who sponsored the bill.

The waiting period "will empower women across our state to make an informed decision on this life-changing procedure,'' she added.
