GOP Rep: Democrats will ‘grab guns’ leading to ‘bloodshed’
Iowa Congressman Steve King is singing the NRA’s tune of fear.
Speaking with radio host Lars Larson on June 23, King speculated that the FBI dropped an investigation of Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen due to “political correctness in not going after someone that was Muslim” and faulted Democrats for calling attention to gun laws in the wake of the attack.
“This is a gun-grabbing agenda that’s there, and it came right out of the mouth of the president within hours of the shooting in Orlando when he gave his presidential address that spoke to that, and right away he blamed it on guns rather than radical Islamic terrorism,” King said.
He continued, “[Obama’s] got his minions out there blurring this and turning it onto guns.”
King criticized Democrats for “their clamor to grab guns,” saying it was not “the gun’s fault.
“…which means a tremendous amount of bloodshed if you try that in this country.”
