Democratic Lawmaker Expresses Disdain For Anyone Who Likes Guns, Bibles

1 Shares

Liking firearms and the 2nd Amendment protections which allow you to own them makes you a supporter of mass murder, according to Representative Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.).

Cohen, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said during a recent MSNBC appearance that he was not surprised by the September 16th mass shooting at the Washington Naval Yard. He said the tragic event resulted directly from a lack of action on gun-control legislation following the shootings in Newtown, Conn.

“It’s no Newtown. People are almost inured to it, because they’ve seen what happened in the Senate, and seen the votes can’t be cobbled together,” he said of the impact the most recent shooting had on members of the House.

Cohen went on to insult any of his colleagues who support the 2nd Amendment.

“And in the House, on the Judiciary Committee, which I sit on, that’s Murderers’ Row; that’s Foxx, Gehrig and Ruth. They all like their guns,” he said.

Cohen added, “I think their guns are next there to their Bibles. I’m not sure which they find more important to them.”

With regard to Republicans, he concluded, “I think guns trump Bibles on that side of the aisle.”
