Reps. Bowman, Massie get in shouting match over Gun Control

Kentucky Republican Rep. Thomas Massie and New York Democratic Rep. Jamaal Bowman got into a shouting match outside the House floor on Wednesday over gun control.
Video footage shows Bowman loudly condemning Republican lawmakers and supporters of the Second Amendment inside the U.S. Capitol as various individuals pass by.
Massie stopped to speak to him, asserting that schools with permissive gun regulations have not faced school shootings. Bowman then grew visibly angry and moved closer to the Republican, gesticulating emphatically.
“Carry guns? More guns lead to more deaths!” Bowman yelled, prompting Massie to retort that every school that has permitted teachers to carry has never suffered a mass shooting nor an accidental discharge.
Bowman became increasingly agitated throughout the exchange and Massie eventually disengaged, attempting to address onlooking reporters directly as Bowman pursued him, seeking to continue the exchange.

The heated exchange comes in the aftermath of a Nashville, Tenn., mass shooting in which a transgender individual killed three students and three faculty members at a Christian school that authorities say she once attended.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical.

We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent.
