Here’s my first video post of yesterday’s Senate hearing from one of the anti-self-defense contingent (other than, of course, Sen. Durbin, who called the meeting), US Representative Gutierrez.
It’s pretty much all Progressive nonsense. The only really notable part is where Gutierrez says he is pushing legislation to ban inexpensive guns–presumably the only guns affordable enough for poor people to purchase in defense against criminal predation. Guess Gutierrez hates poor innocent people.
Also, don’t forget that I did an overview of the entire hearing at Legal Insurrection: “Stand Your Ground” opponents mangle law and Trayvon facts at Senate Hearing
