An twitter message from a republican legislator in the Florida Congress, in which he tells the president of the United States, Joe Bidenwhich will already “learn” if you try to seize the weapons people, generated debate on the networks.
“I have news for the shame that claims to be our president: try taking up our guns and you’ll learn why the second amendment was written in the first place,” Randy Fine, a supporter of former President Donald Trump, wrote on Wednesday.
Fine’s message, which responded to criticism sarcastically, was due to Biden’s reaction after the shooting at a school in Uvalde, Texas, where an 18-year-old boy killed 19 students and two teachers on Tuesday, May 24. “As a nation we have to ask ourselves when in God’s name are we going to stand up to gun lobbyistswhen in God’s name are we going to do what deep down we know we have to do,” Biden said in a White House speech after the Uvalde massacre. “I’m tired. we have to act. We all know what needs to be done,” stressed the president, visibly affected, once again sending a message to his country’s legislators to regulate gun control.
Fine received a avalanche of criticism in the networks from users who even alerted the FBI (investigative police), the CIA (central intelligence) and the Secret Service of what they considered a “threat” to the president.
Fellow Florida congressman Eric Swalwell, a Democrat, was one of those who confronted Fine on Twitter. “This MAGA-Republican (trumpist) claims that we don’t need to do violent background checks with firearms while at the same time threatening the president with violence. This is exactly why we need gun discipline,” he stressed.
Fine responded, “The backlash exposes the lie on the left that they only want ‘common sense gun control.’ They want one thing and one thing only: gun confiscation and an end to 2A, and the The idea that the Americans will exercise their right to fight against them drives them crazy.
In another message, he noted that he now knows why “Washington is such a mess”: “They don’t even know how to read. My comment is about the confiscation of weapons. If you need to learn, let me know.”
Among other things, Rep. Fine has proposed in Florida’s GOP-dominated Congress the idea of legislating to declare gender-affirming treatments for transgender children “child abuse.”
