Louie Gohmert Cries Foul Because Democrats Are Making Republicans Look ‘Complicit’ In Mass Murder Of Children

Louie Gohmert

On Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) raged at congressional Democrats over a proposed gun control legislation, slamming his colleagues across the aisle for criticizing Republicans for opposing any proposal aimed at reducing the proliferation of guns across the country.

Gohmert’s remarks came during a House Judiciary Committee markup of a package of bills that seek to tighten gun control measures in the U.S., including raising the age to purchase semi-automatic rifles to 21 years old and placing restrictions on high-capacity magazines.

“I don’t think that it’s very effective for the children to have people on the other side of the aisle come in and accuse Republicans of being complicit in murder and that we put our right to kill over others’ right to live, to infer by rhetorical supposed questions, who are you here for, we must be here for the gunman, is an outrage,” Gohmert said.

“How dare you. You think we don’t have hearts?” he added.

Gohmert then attempted to turn the conversation to Democratic-controlled cities, blaming Democratic criminal justice policies for high murder rates, a common Republican talking point.
