Huh: Despite Being Shot, Dems Blocked Steve Scalise From Testifying on Gun Violence

Political hypocrisy has unfortunately become an epidemic within the left-wing. The tragic state of the Democrats has been once again highlighted, only this time by their refusal to allow House Minority Whip Steve Scalise to testify about gun violence before the House Judiciary Committee, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

As most Americans are already aware, Scalise was actually the victim of gun violence, thanks to the maniacal killings carried out by a pro-Bernie Sanders support who loathed Republicans.

Why Are Democrats Blocking Testimony from Scalise?

In the simplest terms possible, Democrats are refusing to allow Scalise to testify because they view a Scalise testimony as a political liability. See, even though Scalise was shot in the hip during the yearly Congressional Baseball Game, he still remains an avid supporter of the Second Amendment.

If Scalise were a liberal, or if Scalise called for gun control after being shot, Democrats would be singing his praises and begging him to testify. However, because Scalise is still bravely standing by the freedoms which make this nation great, Democrats are doing everything they can to silence him.

The Democrats’ refusal to allow the House Minority Whip to speak also conflicts with American tradition. Scalise explained why during an appearance on Fox News:

“Historically when Republicans were in charge, even when Democrats were in charge prior to this more radical leftist majority, if a member of Congress wanted to testify on a committee, they always provided a venue for that to happen.”

The House Minority Whip also confirmed the political biases which have motivated the Democrats to bar him from testifying before the House Judiciary Committee:

“In this case they were having a hearing in the judiciary on reducing gun violence and I’ve got a perspective, clearly mine dealt with something that happened to me and I saw how guns were used to saved people’s lives and it should have been able to be part of the testimony. They wanted to focus on taking away the rights of law-abiding citizens, which their bill ultimately does.”
