For Democrats in Congress, policies that are good for them aren’t good enough for the rest of us.They blast the rich for not paying their “fair share,” as they take advantage of every tax loophole and deduction available. They lecture us on global warming while flying around on the taxpayer’s dime. And worst of all, they lecture us on gun control while surrounded by armed security.
Though many would be fine without armed security, as they own a number of guns themselves.So where do you find these Democrat gun owners pushing for gun control? At none other than the recent act of desperation they called a “sit-in.” IJ Review reports:
Congressional Democrats held an unprecedented sit-in on the House floor last week in a push for a vote on two pieces of gun control legislation.
Yet an analysis conducted by the blog Heat Street found that at least 26 of the Democratic lawmakers who participated in the nearly 25-hour sit-in are actually gun owners themselves!Based on a 2013 story in USA Today, 119 Republicans at the time were gun owners, while 46 Democrats were in that category.
By the way, roughly forty or so participated in the Chick-fil-A catered “sit in.” By that math, “only” about 65 percent of those representing the Democrat Party are hypocrites. Does that sound awfully low to anyone else?
