He is endangering the public.

I question the judgment of an elected official that is giving away a weapon of mass carnage.

He should be banned from public office in November.

Bullshit?

100% of people that are shot and killed are close to guns.

If there are no guns around, there is a 100% chance I won't get shot.

Holy shit, logic is in short supply around here.

This candidate is exactly the kind of person who should NOT own a gun.

Not the right message to send from this guy. A shame that he's leading the discussion because there are gun grabbers just waiting to exploit this kind of thing.
