Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press, Sen. Raphael Warnock claimed in response to last week’s mass shooting in Atlanta that legal retail gun purchases do not take long enough, saying, “This shooter was able to kill all of these folks the same day he purchased a firearm.”
He then ridiculed the Georgia legislature for working on strengthening Georgia’s voting laws instead of working on gun control, saying, “But right now, what is our legislature doing? They’re busy under the gold dome here in Georgia, trying to prevent people from being able to vote the same day they register.”
Warnock continued, “I think that suggests a distortion in values. When you can buy a gun and create this much carnage and violence on the same day, but if you want to exercise your right to vote as an American citizen, the same legislature that should be focused on this is busy erecting barriers to that constitutional right.”
The real distortion of values is Warnock promoting the Democrat lie that GOP efforts to make elections fair and legal constitute voter “suppression.” Another distortion of values is Warnock and his fellow Democrats obsessing over suppressing the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners rather than cracking down on the real perpetrators of gun violence: gangs and the criminally insane.
