Loony Louie Gohmert: I Can’t Risk Holding Public Townhalls Because Gabby Giffords Got Shot At One

“Unfortunately, at this time there are groups from the more violent strains of the leftist ideology, some even being paid, who are preying on public town halls to wreak havoc and threaten public safety. Threats are nothing new to me and I have gotten my share as a felony judge. However, the House Sergeant at Arms advised us after former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords was shot at a public appearance, that civilian attendees at Congressional public events stand the most chance of being harmed or killed—just as happened there.” – Rep. Louie Gohmert, the House author of the bill to make it legal for the severely mentally ill to buy guns.
