Alexander Roubian at the New Jersey Second Amendment Society writes:
Longtime Union County Democratic operative James Devine (above right) has shown his true colors in response to the shooting of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise. Devine, unapologetic with his words, is calling for a “hunt” of Republicans under the hashtag #HuntRepublicanCongressmen.
He also claims he was not advocating for violence, which might be believable to people who think law-abiding citizens protecting their Second Amendment rights are responsible for violence in America.
In fact, he claims he was mirroring GOP Senator Rand Paul’s comment that the Second Amendment is for “shooting at the government when it becomes tyrannical.” His idea of a tyrannical government, however, is one that opposes gun control…
New Jersey gun owners know this type of logic isn’t limited to Devine, but common among the state’s representatives, including his good friend Senator Bob Menendez. Below is a recent tweet where he has called for repealing the Second Amendment, a senseless idea popular within his political network.
