Breitbart nails it: “This is the playing field”
The irony is difficult to miss. Leftists, who want to restrict the Second Amendment freedoms accorded to law-abiding Americans, always find a way to get their shots in, so to speak.
Breitbart News highlights the hypocrisy with the deplorable photo accompanying this post: “Guess the political party: AP photo lines pistol up with Senator, 2016 candidate Ted Cruz’s brain.”
Arizonans are well aware of this despicable tactic. In the 2006 congressional race, liberal Democrat Harry Mitchell depicted Republican U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth in the crosshairs of a rifle scope in a television ad.
No stranger to politics —- Mitchell was the former chairman of the Arizona Democrat Party, a state legislator, Tempe Councilman and Mayor —- yet he thought that abhorrent depiction was perfectly acceptable.
Democrats are nothing if not two-faced on the issue of guns. They want to rein in the rights of America’s gun owners, but desire easy access to self-protection for themselves. Our illustrative post “Dem gun hypocrites,” is proof positive.
Liberal gun restrictionist, Mark Kelly, husband of Gabrielle Giffords, has relentlessly advocated for suppressing gun rights of others, but was photographed in 2013 making weapons purchases at a Tucson gun store, including “high capacity” magazines, an AR-15 and a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol.
When it comes to Democrats and guns, hypocrisy reigns supreme.
