FL lawmaker to Biden: ‘Take our guns and you’ll learn why 2A was written’

This Tuesday, nineteen schoolchildren and two teachers were killed in a mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.  The assailant was shot and killed by law enforcement officers at the scene.  He was identified as 18-year-old Salvador Ramos.

The shooting reignited a fierce debate over gun control which has already led to politicians on both sides of the aisle making controversial statements.

On Tuesday, Rep. Val Demings, D-Fl. who is running for U.S. Senate in Florida attacked Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fl. over his position on gun control and mocked religious people for offering ‘thoughts and prayers’ in response to the shooting.

Yesterday afternoon, Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke confronted Governor Greg Abbott during a press conference where Abbott and law enforcement officials were addressing, the incident.  O’Rourke personally attacked the Governor while Abbott and the other people on stage told O’Rourke to leave and hurled epithets at him.

Today, a Florida legislator entered the gun control debate by telling President Biden that he would ‘learn why the 2nd amendment was written’ if he attempted to take guns from American citizens.

Liberal Twitter users promptly responded to Rep. Fine and attacked him for his statement, including one user tagging the U.S Secret Service after interpreting his tweet as a ‘threat’ to President Biden.

Fine refused to back down in a statement to the press and subsequent Tweets.  Florida reporters asked for comment, calling his comment ‘incendiary.’  Fine responded by claiming that Biden’s rhetoric regarding the shooting was incendiary, saying “I think when the President of the United States gets on the day of a mass shooting and says he’s going to come take people’s guns away, that’s incendiary.”

Fine has a history of engaging with his critics in the media and on Twitter.  Earlier this month, Rebekah Jones, who is running to unseat Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fl. insulted Fine on TikTok, calling him a ‘vapid piece of human flesh sack.’  Fine wasted no time responding on Twitter with a video mocking her appearance.
