Texas Senator Ted Cruz Is Ripping Heads Right Off Celebrities Left, And Right.
Sen. Ted Cruz doesn’t want to hear a peep from Hollywood about gun control — in the wake of the Florida high school shooting — ’cause he says they’re operating under a double standard.
We got Cruz Thursday in D.C. and he says celebs weighing in on gun control is totally hypocritical — considering the kind of firepower their security details use. The Senator added, the cry for new gun laws after tragedies like the Parkland shooting undermines the true intent of the 2nd Amendment … in his eyes.
He held up the heroics of a citizen during the Sutherland Springs, TX mass shooting as an example of ordinary Americans needing to be armed.
Cruz got a few of the facts wrong, but he’s making his point, loud and clear here. TMZ
Celebrities have always been very hypocritical when it comes to Guns. They want to use them to protect themselves but doesn’t think the American people need to have the right to do so.
Cruz then brought up Stephen Willeford, who used his own gun to stop the shooter behind the tragic massacre at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, in November.
“It was the Second Amendment that saved a lot of lives that day,” Cruz said of Willeford’s actions. “Law enforcement lives and innocent men, women and children. The Second Amendment is about people protecting themselves.”
Cruz then offered a biting commentary on left-wingers from Tinseltown and their affections for the environment.
“Hollywood liberals on gun control is akin to Hollywood liberals on global warming,” Cruz said. “Which is they fly their private jets to a conference, step out and say, ‘Global warming is terrible. Let’s take away everything from the working men and women.’ And then they get back on their private jet and fly back. Same thing on gun control. If you have a bevy of armed security officers protecting you, maybe you shouldn’t be trying to strip Second Amendment rights from law-abiding citizens.”
