Joni Ernst Is Right on Guns

by Rich Lowry | National Review Online  |  published on November 1, 2014

There is a new argument against Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst. To wit, that she should be excluded from the United States Senate because she might shoot the parliamentarian the first time a procedural ruling goes against her.

In a recently unearthed video from a 2012 National Rifle Association meeting in Iowa, Ernst explained her devotion to her Smith & Wesson 9 millimeter in particular, and to her gun rights in general. “I believe,” she said, “in the right to defend myself and my family — whether it’s from an intruder, or whether it’s from the government, should they decide that my rights are no longer important.”

The Left reacted to her statement a little like the squealing hogs Ernst talked of castrating in a famous campaign ad.

#Ad# Margaret Carlson of Bloomberg said that Ernst declared “she would shoot first and ask questions later if the government violated her rights.”
