Dan Crenshaw Reveals That He Was Plotting Gun Control Before He Was Elected to Congress
https://bigleaguepolitics.com/dan-crens ... -congress/
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has revealed a bombshell, perhaps accidentally, that he supported red flag gun control since before he started his run for Congress, showing that he lied on the campaign trail about his firm support of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.

“I’ve been thinking seriously about this policy for years. It was not something I recently heard of. The NRA supported well-crafted GVRO,” Crenshaw told Kaitlin Bennett of Liberty Hangout, referring to a gun violence restraining order that would allow a judge to order the seizure of firearms from an individual deemed a public safety risk.

Crenshaw has gone further than supporting GVROs. He publicly endorsed pre-crime legislation such as red flag laws and The Threat Assessment, Prevention, and Safety (TAPS) Act following mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton earlier this month.
You can no longer assume a former military officer actually supports and defends the Constitution of the United States. Rep. Crenshaw, you fooled Texans once...let's see what happens next election you face.

I hope the Texains of his district hang this around his neck like an albatross!

It’s really tough to believe anything that is reported anymore. Unless it is in writing or a video of him saying it, I write it off as hearsay.

He is John McCain reincarnated. He should stop being a burden to the taxpayer.

Sadly when it comes to civilian carry, that doesn't surprise me much. However, the [current and former] enlisted guys I know are all in! :fire

Being a former military officer, I had come to this conclusion before my service was even complete, based on interaction with my fellow officers. However, I still believe that the large majority do.

Is he just a lowlife double-oathbreaker who can't be trusted, or has he crossed the line into Domestic Enemy territory?

“I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
I believe the basic political division in this country is not between liberals and conservatives but between those who believe that they should have a say in the personal lives of strangers and those who do not.
