Americans are looking to their elected officials to provide hope and optimism as the coronavirus continues to spread across America.
Donald Trump has tried to do that, but he is being undermined at every turn.
And now this top Democrat just made a terrible coronavirus revelation that no one wanted to hear.
New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy was one of over 20 governors to put his state on lockdown.
As part of the order to close down nonessential businesses Murphy shut the doors on gun dealers in New Jersey.
This happened at the same time as some inmates from prisons were turned loose on society.
A voter confronted Murphy about this decision and said that minorities in crime filled neighborhoods were now defenseless and if Murphy thinks guns don’t save lives would he be willing to give up his armed security detail.
“Your executive actions closed down gun stores, saying they’re ‘non-essential.’ The poorest minorities living in the most dangerous cities with the highest crime rates now have absolutely no way of buying a firearm. I’ve lived in Newark, so I understand this first hand,” the citizen stated.
The voter challenged Murphy by saying, “If less guns reduce crime, will you give up your personal bodyguards?”
Murphy – of course – was completely unwilling to give up his guns telling the citizen that “a safer society has fewer guns, not more guns. And the guns that do exist are in the hands of the right people — particularly trained members of law enforcement.”
Americans are living through uncertain times.
They are nervously watching the spread of the coronavirus and wondering how it will affect their lives.
The last thing they need is to feel unsafe at home because anti-gun politicians disarmed them.
