Rep. Kathleen Rice Calls NRA a ‘Domestic Security Threat’

Congresswoman Kathleen Rice (D-NY) lashed out at the NRA and spokeswoman Dana Loesch, calling them “domestic security threats” in the era of President Trump.

Rice’s comments, though not a direct response, followed a very brief Twitter debate on the Philando Castile case.

It was a shocking pivot by the congresswoman …

Oddly enough, had she read the Second Amendment recently, she would have noticed that it specifically mentions that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms” is an absolute necessity for “the security of a free State.”

The NRA heavily promotes that concept, meaning they are in part responsible for keeping ‘domestic security threats’ at bay.

In fact, one could argue that anyone who is in direct contrast to the values espoused by the NRA and the Second Amendment, is the true domestic security threat.

Loesch, never one to back down from a good fight over her beliefs, blasted Rice for the incendiary comment.

Thus far, Rice has chosen to remain silent on why she equated millions of law abiding Second Amendment supporters to domestic terrorists.

Perhaps Ms. Rice missed the news when James Hodgkinson went on a mass assassination rampage in Alexandria, Virginia. Or even just this week when an anti-Trump leftist shot and killed a GOP official in Pennsylvania. She may want to look within her own party’s fanatics before she starts pointing fingers wantonly at NRA members.

Or maybe her memory is a little bit hazy after admitting she has used marijuana and cocaine on “a handful” of occasions. That stuff will effect your mind, Ms. Rice.

Rice is the victim of a Second Amendment counter-culture in New York state, where ultraliberals like Governor Andrew Cuomo have done everything in their power to cast guns as evil. They enacted the SAFE Act in 2013, without a lawful review of the legislation, in the middle of the night.

Cuomo boasts that the SAFE Act is the “toughest assault weapons ban in the country.”

An affirmation filed by NY Democrats – including Rice – in opposition to a lawsuit against the SAFE Act reads as follows:

“New York’s bans on assault weapons and large- capacity magazines do not implicate Plaintiffs’ Second Amendment rights, because such weapons are not within the scope of Second Amendment protection. In any event, even if they did substantially burden Plaintiffs’ rights, these provisions so clearly satisfy New York’s interests in public safety and crime prevention that they easily survive constitutional scrutiny.”

“In any event, even if they did substantially burden Plaintiffs’ rights …”

That tells you all you need to know about the mindset of NY liberals when it comes to the Constitutionally protected right to bear arms. ‘If you rights are infringed … oh well.’

No, the threat to domestic security isn’t the NRA or Dana Loesch … It’s those who fight them. Anti-Second Amendment liberals. NY Democrats.

Kathleen Rice.
