Here’s a town hall conversation between a voter and Rep. James Lankford (R-OK) about what’s really to blame for gun violence:
CONSTITUENT: My question is regarding the guns and is Washington at all aware of the psychotropic drugs that these children are taking? I guarantee it 100 percent that’s our big problem. […]
LANKFORD: I agree with that. I think there’s a bunch of issues that, quite frankly, most liberals are afraid to talk about. […] Where are we on all those psychiatric drugs? We’ve overmedicated kids. Quite frankly some of the overmedication of kids are because welfare moms want to get additional benefits and if they can put them on SSI through maintenance drugs, they can also put them on Social Security disability and get a separate check. That is wrong on every single level. Not only is it fraudulent to the government, but it also tells a kid with great potential, “don’t try because you’re disabled.”
Yes, welfare moms are to blame for gun violence. And again with the psychiatric drugs — torn directly from Alex Jones’ apoplectic rant on CNN. Let it be known that spazzy freaks like Jones and Ted Nugent aren’t just the fringe — they’re the centerpiece of the Republican Party’s views on guns.
