Democrat Rep. Val Demings , who represents Florida’s 10th Congressional District got into it with someone on her Facebook page after she posted her support for “common sense gun legislation,” i.e. gun control.
Demings’ anti-Second Amendment stance framed as “standing with victims of gun violence” is quite hypocritical given the fact that when she served as police chief in Orlando in 2009, she was so reckless with her department issued firearm that she received a written censure that remained on her record for three years.
In short, then-Police Chief Demings left her department issued 9 mm and ammunition in her unlocked vehicle. Her handgun, ammunition and other items were subsequently stolen by someone who stole the duffle bag which contained them from her vehicle.
“Although the vehicle’s remote was used to lock the vehicle, the doors were not physically [checked] to ensure the locks [had] engaged,” internal-affairs manager Dwain L. Rivers wrote in the four-page report. “Chief Demings accepts full responsibility and does not wish to contest the sustained finding.”
When confronted on Facebook about her irresponsibility as a gun owner, Demings responded that she is not perfect and has different First Amendment rights than the person who challenged her.
Newsflash, Rep. Demings. Since you too an oath to defend and uphold the Constitution of the United States of America, you may want to familiarize yourself with it. Nowhere in the Constitution does it grant different First Amendment rights to you or any member of Congress than all Americans have.
If this isn’t further proof that Democrats want to silence dissent against the progressive agenda and believe that conservative voices should not be heard then I don’t know what is.
