A recent city council meeting in New York paved the way for residents and politicians to discuss a proposed anti-gun measure, and when a man who lived in the town pushed back against the idea, a Democrat councilman left others in the room stunned.
The June 15 meeting in Poughkeepsie, New York included debate over a controversial proposal to force gun owners in the city to lock up all of their firearms when they’re not in use, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal. What should have been an open forum for residents and lawmakers to discuss their opinions on the issue, quickly went south after members from the Dutchess County chapter of the Shooter Committee on Political Education tried to offer their input on the measure, sending Democrat Councilman Joe Rich into a fury.
Apparently, Rich wasn’t a fan of the dissenting opinions, which really isn’t surprising given his political leanings. However, the manner in which he handled the situation couldn’t have been any worse.
“I know why you’re doing this, because you don’t want us to have a law…that would cause you a lot of trouble out there,” Rich said to gun rights advocates. “You don’t want them to work…that’s the truth. You’re here to make sure that these laws never get a chance to find out if they are going to work or not.”
Of course, the idea has been tried and was a failure, like most every other gun control measure, but that didn’t stop Rich from further tearing into the group, accusing them of not “loving” the city and also claiming they don’t even live within it. Does that sound familiar at all?
“There are people here that live in the 2nd Ward…,” a man said, responding to Rich’s inaccurate assertion. “You know I live in the 2nd Ward.”
Queue the liberal rage.
“Quiet! You’re not recognized!” Rich shouted. “Shut up! You’re not recognized…I’m tired of having people from the audience interrupt me! I’ve listened to all you people from 5 p.m.! Shut up!”
You people? Sounds like a stereotype to me. Anyways, the meeting was adjourned for 10 minutes, which didn’t seem to do much good. The fascist Rich refused to listen to citizens concerned over their Second Amendment rights being violated and the government overstepping its bounds by trying to inject itself into their homes, so the debate raged on.
After the meeting, when asked about the explosive outburst, Rich claimed he “didn’t mean” to lose his temper, but he felt the group was being abusive by showing up in large numbers, and get this, wearing t-shirts supporting their cause. Typical liberal, cry victim whenever they can’t control themselves.
