PA Democrat asks if she can kill a Republican Representative

While debating a bill expanding a Pennsylvania law allowing deadly force in cases of self-defense, Democratic Representative Margo Davidson of Delco used a hypothetical situation to ask if she could kill a Republican colleague.

According to an article at phiily.com:

In rendering scenarios in which the new law might excuse the killing of a person perceived as a threat, Davidson stood on the House floor and asked a question that included a reference to the chamber's most conservative member and maybe strongest pro-gun advocate, Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, R-Butler County.

"If the gentleman from Butler County stood yelling, knowing that he's a gun-toter, and I felt threatened, would I be protected under court law if I blew his brains out?"

John Baer writes that Davidson giggled amid audible gasps.

House Speaker Sam Smith ordered Davidson's remarks stricken from the record, but they will never be stricken from the memory of those present.

It is what it is - another example of Democratic hypocrisy on display.

I've said a lot of things

I've said a lot of things about democrats, liberals, progressives, and those of the left media but I dont think I've ever said flat out, even in a hypothetical to kill any of them. Punched, pied, and slapped maybe.

What's it called when someone says something hypocritical and is in complete denial of the hypocrisy? (Besides a democrat lol)

Homeland security statement: patriotism is now considered terrorism.
I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

Yes, with substantiating

Yes, with substantiating evidence such as his gun pointed at you in a threatening manner. Otherwise, if his gun is holstered, it's murder.

Liberals really are violent

Liberals really are violent in nature
