Larry Pratt Glad Members Of Congress Have A 'Healthy Fear' Of Being Shot
Speaking with Cincinnati radio host Bill Cunningham on Sunday, Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt delightedly told a second-hand story about of a member of his group lobbying a congresswoman, who reportedly told the GOA member, “You want to shoot me, don’t you.”
Pratt said he didn’t think this man actually wanted to shoot the congresswoman, but added, “that’s probably a healthy fear for them to have.”
“You know, I’m kind of glad that’s in the back of their minds,” he said. “Hopefully they’ll behave.”
Cunningham: Larry Pratt of Gun Owners, why does the media have such a bias against the Second Amendment?
Pratt: They, I think they might understand what it’s real purpose is. And its real purpose is to serve as a restraint on government abuse. And since they want to be involved in government abuse, they kind of take it personally, I think. The Second Amendment is intended for people just like them – or perhaps we could say, like Piers Morgan – those who were born to rule and we were born to be ruled. And for us to have guns kind of upsets that order of things that they think ought to be. So I think they take it very personally.
I was told of a conversation that one of our members had had with a member of Congress. And he was lobbying on a gun issue, but he was, I knew the guy well enough to know that almost certainly he was mild-mannered, he was just explaining our position. And apropos of nothing, the congressman – congresswoman, actually – said, ‘You want to shoot me, don’t you.’
Well, that’s probably a healthy fear for them to have, even though that’s not the guy’s – he wasn’t saying anything about that, it wasn’t in his demeanor. But you know, I’m kind of glad that’s in the back of their minds. Hopefully they’ll behave.
