At a COFFEE With CONSTITUENTS Meeting on Friday, SOUTH CAROLINA Republican Representative RALPH NORMAN pulled out a loaded .38-Caliber Handgun and placed it on a table.
TIME Magazine reports Rep. RALPH NORMAN said;
“I’m not going to be a Gabby Giffords. I’m tired of these liberals jumping on the guns themselves as if they are the cause of the problem. Guns are not the problem.”RALPH NORMAN was referring to former ARIZONA Congresswoman GABRIELLE GIFFORDS who in 2011 was shot at a similar constituents meeting in Arizona.
NORMAN states that he will continue to bring his gun to future events.
Retired NASA Astronaut MARK KELLY is Gabby Giffords' husband, who later spoke out against Ralph Norman.
MARK KELLY stated;
“Americans are increasingly faced with a stark choice: leaders like Gabby, who work hard together to find solutions to problems, or extremists like the NRA and Congressman Norman, who rely on intimidation tactics and perpetuating fear."
