Larry Pratt Blames Liberal Politics For San Antonio Train Station Murder
In an interview with far-right talk show host Stan Solomon this month, Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt blamed the fatal beating of a man at an Amtrak station in San Antonio on the fact that San Antonio is a liberal area.
Upon learning that the murder had taken place in San Antonio, Pratt said, “Well, that’s disappointing to hear, because I guess in the city people are rather more liberal than they are in the rest of the state, because if that had been attempted in a medium-sized city, the outcome could have been quite different.”
“Well, there probably could have been 25 people in that Amtrak station who could have pulled a weapon and blown this son-of-a-Michelle to hell,” Solomon replied, apparently a reference to the First Lady, whom he frequently makes a target of puerile jokes.
Last year, Pratt blamed the death toll in the mass shooting that critically wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords on the fact that it took place at “a Democrat town hall meeting of a Democrat representative” and Democrats “don’t necessarily, most of them, believe in carrying guns.” There was, in fact, a man with a gun at the scene who attempted to stop the shooter, but almost shot an innocent man.
Later in the conversation, Solomon blamed the murder on anti-white racism (a favorite theme of his), while his cohost “Chief” Steve Davis speculated that if the “race-baiter and race-agitator” Barack Obama “was not the president, this would not have happened.”
