Pelosi criticizes GOP for pushing pro-gun bills

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi followed up her praise of Majority Whip Steve Scalise’s return to Capitol Hill with a stern rebuke of Republicans efforts to loosen gun regulations.

Scalise received a warm welcome Thursday during his surprise return to work after being severely wounded in a shooting at a congressional baseball practice in June. However, it wasn’t too long before Pelosi seized the opportunity to criticize a pair of pro-gun bills that Republicans plan to bring to a vote in the near future, Politico reported.

Pelosi specifically expressed her opposition to the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act, which would primarily loosen restrictions on suppressors. When asked by reporters about the legislation, the top Democrat referenced Scalise’s shooting in her response.

“Hunters need armor piercing bullets? They need silencers? They need conceal and carry to hunt?” she told reporters. “Silencers — even in the case of Steve Scalise — if you can hear, you can run to where the tragedy is emanating from. It’s horrible.”

    Her opinion doesn’t count for much in my view. What her constituents see in her is something I remain curious about, but then To Each Their Own comes to mind.

    She, like all commies prefers unarmed Peasants; they are easier to control and kill. All Communist governments since the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, have made mincemeat out of everyone that was opposed to their confiscatory control and seizure. Hundreds of Millions murdered to enact and maintain their collective Marxist agendas. Every American should read and understand that once they get a foothold on your Freedom, there will be no turning back, especially if you have nothing to fight with.

    Ever wonder if she is this STUPID how STUPID are the people that keep putting her RETARDED ASS in office.

    It is very hard to determine if this woman is just ignorant or truly an idiot.

    Baseball practice shooter and LV shooter were both registered DemocRATS. Both also crazy.

  • George T Horvat

    What a stupid woman. She watches too many movies and TV shows that falsely mute the sound of a gun firing when it has what she calls a suppresser attached to it. Suppressers or silencers do “not” make a gun being fired “totally silent. To do that you’d need a muffler the size of a five gallon pail. She’s a babbling idiot.

  • R Parten

    We need guns to protect us tyrannical leftist’s like you Nancy!

  • L Cavendish

    Dems/libs push pro-abortion bills…that result in WAY more loss of life than any and all gun deaths in this country…but whatever…
    I am pro 2A and pro-choice…just like the FACTS to be out there

    Truly sad that after all this time, this “representative of the People” doesn’t understand that the 2nd Amendment ISN’T ABOUT HUNTING!

  • Jackson Brannon

    HOW do Suppressors hide a person firing a rifle??? If you are deaf then maybe but a suppressor hardly quiets a rifle!!

  • Tom Tom

    Maybe someone Pelosi knows will actually read this. Maybe they’ll tell her??? Doubtful!!
    The second amendment is intended to give citizens the means to defend against an
    oppressive government. That has been verified by the Supreme Court. By common
    logic we are entitled to be better armed than our potential enemy, our
    government. Therefore there can be no government restrictions that are
    constitutional. The bill of rights is also the basis of all laws we have. Any
    law contrary is unconstitutional. If we are to defend against a Sherman Tank we
    are entitled to have an M1-Abrams. It sounds extreme but that’s the logic of
    the second amendment that Hillarys disciples do not want to discuss. In fact
    it is seldom discussed by anyone because it is too broad reaching for most
    minds to understand. It is the ultimate safety factor to keep government in check.
    That is the reason there is such an effort to abolish it. Without it we are no
    longer free. I do not believe any amendment included in the Bill of Rights is
    subject to the same ratification, revision, or cancellation as general
    legislative laws.

    Pelosi ..You ,Hillary,Warren.Schumer,and Waters are the reasons we Must KEEP OUR GUN RIGHTS…

  • Along Came Jones

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi does not represent the citizens of the U.S.A. she represents minority illegals as her title indicates. She is continually re-elected by the idiot Democrats that surround us Republicans in CA. Her and her husband are not true patriots as she claims, if they were they would not keep their business’s in the Pacific islands to keep from paying their fair share of taxes. Just another corrupt Democrat!

  • generalJed

    Pelosi is a dedicated communist, as are most “”Democrat” leaders. that is all you have to know, and should be reason enough to vigorously oppose any of their efforts to ban anything.
