This was EPIC!
Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) joined Stuart Varney on Thursday to discuss a recent gun control push by CEOs.
Earlier this week a group of woke US CEOs sent the US Senate a letter demanding the body pass gun control legislation.
Senator John Kennedy, who is known for his humorous quotes outdid him self this morning.
** I find it curious, Stuart, that when a radical jihadist blows up a school and kills kids we’re told not to judge all Muslims by the act of one Muslim, and I agree with that by the way, but I don’t understand why the same rule does not apply to the 100 million law abiding gun owners of this country. Here’s my starting point, I want to see facts.
** I believe love is the answer but I also want a handgun just in case. And that’s my right as an American citizen. The Bill of Rights is not an a la carte menu. The Second is just as important as the First and the Fourth.
** Some of my colleagues say, “OK we’re going to curtail this Second Amendment constitutional right in the interest of pubic safety and it will reduce mass shootings.” My response is, “OK, prove it.”
** I’m interested in facts. I’m not interested in speculation. I don’t want to see people pull stuff out of their orifices. Show me the scientific evidence because you’re dealing with a constitutional right.
** And in respect to what these CEOs say? I respect their right to have an opinion but I don’t pay any attention to them. A lot of these guys, they’re the ones who tanked the economy in ’08…
** …And about that poll, Stuart, first I gotta see the poll to see what they say they say. I know how to write a poll question. I can make a poll walk, talk and whistle the Battle Hymn of the Republic.
** We have a bill of rights not to protect the majority but to protect the minority.
