An Arizona state senator, musing aloud during debate on a bill involving concealed-carry permits speculated that one reason why people may feel a need to carry is because the country has lost its moral footing.
State Sen. Sylvia Allen, R-Snowflake, has of course been pilloried by Democratics and the media for having the temerity to muse on:
"It's the soul that is corrupt. How we get back to a moral rebirth I don't know. Since we are slowly eroding religion at every opportunity that we have. Probably we should be debating a bill requiring every American to attend a church of their choice on Sunday to see if we can get back to having a moral rebirth," she told the committee.
"But since that would not be allowed and we would not even be debating that, I'm going to vote yes that people who are responsible who have a CCW permit don't have to worry about their guns as they're out and about and doing business in whatever building they're in except ones that where they aren't allowed," she said.
Note that she pointedly used the preface "Probably" and subsequently observed that it "would not be allowed and we would not even be debating that". Such trifling things don't matter to the Left; a Democratic state senator eagerly posted her comments on social media, braying that he believes the idea's unconstitutional.
Really? Why, what a surprise! It appears that she said as much, and was merely expressing disappointment with the apparent decline in morality in our nation prior to announcing her "yes" vote.
No matter; it's a wonderful opportunity to pile on and deride her and Republicans in general. Even better, they can make up outright lies, as shown below. There's really quite a bit of difference between what she said and what's being reported. According to a lot of them, she practically introduced a bill demanding that everybody go to church.
Just when I thought the Left couldn't get any more disgusting, they manage to plumb new depths.
