Trey Gowdy is the left’s worst nightmare and when a liberal gun-hater tried to make a ridiculous anti-gun argument, he put her in her place like no one can!
Trey Gowdy is an American, a leader and lastly a politician in that order. His priorities are on full display as he stands up for the Constitution of the United States and the Second Amendment.
This happens in particular when a liberal gun-hating Obama puppet tries to make their ridiculous point.
Obama and Hillary tried to take on the cause to use a “no-fly” list to restrict the rights of law-abiding American citizens. Of course allowing terror suspects to have guns is something nobody wants but having a list maintained by liberals in Washington with no legal way of getting of this list is a constitutional violation.
In a hearing Gowdy unloads on an official after she is asked about the illegal practice and leaves her utterly silent. Crickets ladies and gentleman and she deserves the humiliation that Gowdy dishes out.
The Obama administration tried to make the horrific Islamic terrorist attack on the LBGT community in Orlando a crisis to put everyone on the no-fly list on a no-gun list.
Besides the many errors in the no-fly list, it entirely removed due process from the system.
Gowdy made it clear:
“Can you name another constitutional right that is chilled until we find out it is chilled, and then we have to petition the government to get it back? Is there another constitutional right we treat the same way for American citizens as we do the second amendment?”
“What process is currently afforded an American citizen before they go on that list?” asked Gowdy.
After being told that “there isn’t one,” but, rather, only a process to petition to get off the list after finding out that one has been put on it, Gowdy pushed back. Hard.
“I’m actually talking about due process, which is a phrase we find in the Constitution.” he quipped, “that you cannot deprive people of certain things without due process.”
He continued hammering the liberal: “Can you name another constitutional right that is chilled until we find out it is chilled, and then we have to petition the government to get it back?” he asked. “Is that true with the First Amendment?”
Without a coherent rejoinder to him, Gowdy persisted: If we’re “fine with doing it with the Second Amendment, how about the First? How about we not let them set up a website or a Goggle account? How about we not let them join a church until they can petition the government to get off the list. How about not getting a lawyer? How about the Sixth Amendment? How about you can’t get a lawyer until you petition the government to get off the list? Or my favorite: How about the Eighth Amendment? We are going to subject you to cruel and unusual punishment until you petition the government to get off the list?”
“Is there another constitutional right that we treat the same way, for American citizens, that we do for the Second Amendment?” he asked.
“Can you think of one?”
He repeated after receiving no reply: “Can you think of one?”
“I don’t have an answer for you, sir,” said the liberal.
