An indignant Rep. Debbie Lesko said she’d do anything to protect her grandchildren, including shooting all five of them. That June floor speech during debate over landmark gun reform has gone viral.
In early June, as the House debated measures that would become the most significant gun legislation in decades, the Arizona Republican strode to the microphone to deliver her impassioned argument against red flag laws — by raising the reddest flag in congressional history.
“I have five grandchildren. I would do anything—anything—to protect my five grandchildren. Including, as a last resort, shooting them, if I had to, to protect the lives of my grandchildren,” Lesko said.
Read the full article. It’s not clear why Lesko’s June speech suddenly went viral yesterday or how even how it passed relatively unnoticed at the time.
That she said it is bad enough
That she won’t be called out on it is worse
That she will still remain a lawmaker after that is why I see democracy ending in 3 years
She’s running unopposed, not that it would matter since this district is solid red.
What she likely meant was that she would shoot the political opposition….not exactly better is it?
Yikes!! Time to revoke granny’s right to visit the little darlings!
What a hideous monster!
Well I suppose it would cut down on school shootings if everyone would just murder their children themselves.
Hello, Police Department? I have a red flag that I would like to report.
If she shot her five grandchildren, wouldn’t that make her the violent criminal?
Oh, I get it, she thinks “criminal” is some kind of essential spiritual state like “demonic”. Wouldn’t be surprised if she thought the same about “Jewish” or “Black”. “But I’m a good Christian; this is not who I am.”
Now I feel like a monster, I am about to welcome my 1st granddaughter any day now and am thinking of what education fund to setup and she is talking about killing her grandchildren. I need to work on my priorities.
Kids, I wouldn’t eat those cookies grandma just baked. I wouldn’t take any apples from the old witch, either.
OMG! She’s as nutso as Gosar and Biggs! And here I used to think that Lesko was the most reasonable RepubliQan in Arizona.
She also said that guns shouldn’t be taken away from violent mentally ill people. Then she said Republicans passed, and signed, into law, something that prevents mass shootings. I wonder what that was. It ain’t a-workin’.
I guess the only thing that can stop a bad granny with a gun is good grandkids with guns. Isn’t that the reasoning?
She’s so “pro-life” she’ll kill her grandchildren to protect her guns fetish and idolatry. I hope the grandchildren and their parents understand grandma wants to kill them.
She said she would shoot her grandchildren if “necessary” to save them.
I want to know what she believes is a necessary situation that she would need to kill.
A stranger knocking at the door?
Walmart was out of her favorite hot pocket?
Trump is indicted?
She would shoot them so that they would not have to undergo the horror of living in a country where there is health care for all and equal rights for people of color and gays.
