FRC in the Spotlight...
September 19, 2019
Yesterday, I joined the Tea Party Patriots for a Capitol Hill news conference along with House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), and Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) as well as mass shooting survivors and family members of mass shooting victims. We gathered in response to the attack by Democrats on the Second Amendment. I was asked to participate, because FRC headquarters was the target of a mass shooter in 2012 -- in D.C., ironically, which has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation.
As I shared yesterday, the growing problem of gun violence is not the absence of laws -- it's the absence of morality. It's the result of the Left's unrelenting assault on religious freedom in the public square. It is the result of the very ones crying for gun control who have been on a half century march to drive God out of America's institutions and deny our children the freedom of religion. They've gone after the First Amendment and now they're going after the Second Amendment. I say no.
