GOP increasingly stands for ‘Guns Over People’

Updated

Let me finish tonight with this.

Increasingly the Republican Party sounds and looks like a pack of moonshiners. They speak openly of going after federal officials coming around to enforce gun laws. They talk about them the way the old moonshiners talked about “them revenue-ers.”

I mean it when I say the GOP increasingly stands for “Guns Over People.” No matter how many kids get killed, they stick to their political weapons and their talk of holding onto their semi-automatics with their “cold, dead hands.”

I think many people now see those “cold, dead hands” connected to “cold, dead hearts”—people without the slightest feeling about what semi-automatics rifles in the wrong hands have done.
