This is a discussion on Trey Gowdy comments on weekend tragedy within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; https://www.foxnews.com/media/trey-g...-if-youre-dead I agreed with his comments that legislators should review existing laws to see if they are being enforced and how effective the enforcement is ...
I agreed with his comments that legislators should review existing laws to see if they are being enforced and how effective the enforcement is before adding more laws. Some laws should be eliminated. But, I was surprised to hear him say that he'll give up his rights if the police can prevent mass shootings and I was surprised to hear him say background checks are necessary. Like I said many times, politicians don't truly believe in the Constitution.

IT'S OUR RIGHTS>THEY WANT TO WRONG
Because I have the right to keep and bear arms, my concern for being dead is not all that high. However, I wouldnt trade my right to keep and bear arms for any promise of safety. 52 people were shot in Chicago this weekend and nobody seems to care. Strange...
We get the government we deserve.
OK, how about the right to free speach? Or how about we require everyone to attend church and make the pastors submit sermons for approval?"Show me a law that will prevent the next Sandy Hook and sign me up as a husband and father," Gowdy said, "...and I'll give up any other right I have."
Some people just don't get it.
Send bachelors and come heavily armed.
The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

Chicago and Baltimore are their own War Zones! At least in Afganistan and other holiday areas in that part of the World, the combatants carry AK 47s as visible participants in the conflict.
I wonder what I missed not injecting/snorting drugs? Well not really. A pint of beer on the way home from work was my relaxation.
The 60s? Were they real?
Glad he’s out of Congress with that attitude. See TJ quote below.

Did they get what they deserve for giving up their right to a safe neighborhood?
Will we get what we deserve if we give up our right to keep and bear arms?
In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?
‘"Show me a law that will prevent the next Sandy Hook and sign me up as a husband and father," Gowdy said, "...and I'll give up any other right I have."‘
Well, there’s the spirit that beat the Japanese!

I guess more laws will make criminals and sick a$$holes act right?
Would love to hear the logic on his stance.
Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward. Whoever cannot take care of himself without that law is both. For a wounded man shall say to his assailant, "If I die, you are forgiven. If I live, I will kill you." Such is the Rule of Honor.
I am beginning to believe that all politicians no matter the party are tools, and untrustworthy.
