Chip Roy Takes Jerry Nadler to the Cleaners and Hangs Him out to Dry on Guns – Opinion

The Democrats are having difficulty trying to get the anti Second Amendment agenda passed in Congress, as we reported Thursday. The House was discussing the Assault Weapons Ban Act 2021.

House Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) not only revealed he didn’t understand guns, but he also stepped into a trap making it very clear that he wanted to ban guns that were in common use. The Supreme Court ruling in the case protects guns in common use. Heller. So, he’s acknowledging he wants to ban guns in violation of that decision. If the Supreme Court is able to approve anything, it will examine the case to see if the intention was to avoid that decision.

That wasn’t the only time that Nadler stepped in it during the hearings. Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX also took Nadler to school after he tried to make up facts about guns and the increased risk for women in domestic violence cases.

“The presence of a gun in domestic violence situations increases the risk of homicide by women by 500%,” Nadler said. He used that to justify why there shouldn’t be an exception to the bill for domestic violence victims to be able to protect themselves. “So, pass this amendment, and you’ll see an increase in domestic — in homicides of women by 500%.” I like how they try to use women when they can, but won’t even define what a woman is, if they think it hurts their narrative.

Chip Roy came up with the ideal solution.

“I would note that the chairman just said that the existence of a firearm — I think you might have said in the household, I’m not sure — increases the likelihood of violence by 500% or something of that nature,” Roy responded.

“And I’d say, well, not if the woman holds it.”

Roy went to Nadler’s cleaners. He washed and dried Nadler using the spin cycle. But it’s an important point to make. A gun can be a powerful equalizer especially for women who are in domestic situations where they might need to confront a stronger man. Nadler would deny them that right — for their good, he would protest.

Roy also noted that Nadler’s argument resulted in banning all guns. Nadler didn’t limit his “facts” to just “assault weapons.”

“If you’re saying firearms generally, then the next step for the chairman is to limit all firearms — which, let’s get to the heart of it, we know that that is where our colleagues wish to go,” Roy said.

Exactly. They say it, even as they protest that isn’t what they mean.
