Republicans are using guns to defend against Democrats.
Republican Rep. Matt Rinaldi came over and said: “This is BS. That’s why I called ICE.”
In a subsequent Facebook statement, Rinaldi admitted saying he had called federal authorities and threatened to shoot Nevárez — but said his life was in danger, not the other way around.
“Nevárez threatened my life on the House floor after I called ICE on several illegal immigrants who held signs in the gallery which said ‘I am illegal and here to stay,’ ” Rinaldi wrote. He said Democrats were encouraging protesters to ignore police instructions and, “When I told the Democrats I called ICE, Representative Ramon Romero physically assaulted me, and other Democrats were held back by colleagues.”
Rinaldi said Nevárez later “told me that he would ‘get me on the way to my car.’ ” Rinaldi said he responded by making it clear “I would shoot him in self-defense,” adding that he is currently under Texas Department of Public Safety protection.
And what does the media say about this? As you might guess the media is against the person, Republican, saying they will defend themselves:
Protest sparks Texas lawmaker threats of gun violence
As usual, there is no distinction between protective violence and criminal violence. That means they have crap of brains and/or they are evil.
