Sen. Ted Cruz calls president’s gun control effort ‘cynical, political and wrong’

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) visited a rifle and firearm accessory manufacturer today, where he spoke out against the gun control efforts of the president and House Democrats. “I think that effort is cynical; I think that effort is political; and I think that effort is wrong,” Cruz told employees at Leander, Texas-based LaRue Tactical.

LaRue proved to be a receptive audience for Cruz’s message. Earlier this month, LaRue issued a statement that it would limit gun sales to government agencies to mirror any restrictions placed on private citizens.

Due to the recent and numerous new Anti-gun/Anti-2nd Amendment laws passed and/or pending across our country, LaRue Tactical has been forced to reconsider how we provide products to state and local agencies.

Effective today, in an effort to see that no legal mistakes are made by LaRue Tactical and/or its employees, we will apply all current State and Local Laws (as applied to civilians) to state and local law enforcement / government agencies. In other words, LaRue Tactical will limit all sales to what law-abiding citizens residing in their districts can purchase or possess.

    Excellent decision taken by LaRue Tactical! The logical extension of Barret’s years old refusal to maintain and upgrade their .50 caliber rifles purchased and used by LAPD SWAT.

    One simple truth.

    Never in the history of law enforcement has an arresting officer walked past the criminal to arrest the firearm.

      Perverse liberals obsessed with putting the blame for crime on this must be crushed with inanimate objects.

    How do we know it’s political? Well since there are far too many examples to discuss in one post, I will only speak to one example for now. Alcohol kills 100,000 Americans every single year. Does anyone really need to get drunk? How many drinks should any one person be allowed to consume at the bar before he or she gets back in their car to try and drive home?

    You have to assume Dems will never talk about that little pink elephant in the living room even though someone’s feeding it peanuts and someone’s shovelingshit all day long. The only way that would happen would be if all the nation’s wineries and breweries were solid GOP voting blocs instead of the other way around.

    Is a keg of beer worse than an AK-47?
    Is a case of beer worse than an AR-15?
    Is a 6-pack worse than a 9mm w/ a 15 round magazine?
    Statistics would reveal an emphatic yes on all three counts.

    So is going after the NRA and the Second Amendment political for the Dinglebarry?
    Answer: Is liberalism a disease?

    Democrats want to take your guns–all of your guns. And any who say otherwise are lying.

      What’s truly amazing is that they keep on telling that lie, and even when you provide factual proof of this, they still deny it.

      Yes, they do!! Peons are so much easier to control without those pesky guns!! Just ask England and Australia……..
