Republican Lawmaker Nick Freitas’s Speech on Guns Goes Viral

When you’re hot, you’re hot.

Last Friday, a Virginia House of Delegates member delivered an impassioned speech on gun control in the legislative chamber. It was so intense, that it actually caused some Democrats to actually get up and leave.

Here’s how Freitas frames his humdinger of a speech: “For several days now, some Democrats in the Virginia House of Delegates have made public speeches comparing those of us who take our oath to the Constitution seriously, to include the 2nd Amendment, to Nazis and segregationists.”

If you’re going to liken your opponents to Nazis and segregationists, you better back up your comparison with some facts. Freitas, thankfully, did bring the pain. You have to watch this video in full to grasp its total effect:

Someone call the fire department! The Virginia House of Delegates is on fire!

That was so epic. Here was my favorite part: “I would really appreciate it if every time you want to make a powerful point, you don’t project the sins, the atrocities and the injustices that the Democratic Party perpetrated onto others onto us.”

Freitas’s comments may seem overwrought, but he makes a good point: the push to liberalize our culture has birthed something evil in our society. We consider ourselves so much more intelligent and advances than our descendants from over a century ago. Yet mass shootings like this didn’t occur as long as two decades ago. Tragedies like the one that occurred in Stoneman Douglas high school never would have happened just a generation ago.

The liberal tossing off of such concepts like communal duty and faith has left us lonely and embittered. That loneliness, in turn, causes some to lash out with deadly violence.

One Democrat lawmaker had this to say about Freitas’s speech: “Today, I have been offended as I can never recall since being a part of this body. And I have seen many of my colleagues emotionally shaken and bothered by either a lack of concern for facts or just simply playing to the cameras, I don’t know which.”

Sorry, buster. Law-abiding Americans are actually offended by your Party’s push for stripping us of our ability to defend ourselves. That’s the real offense here.
