Attorney General Eric Holder made headlines this week after it was discovered that he once said gun owners should be “shamed” into giving up their firearms.
And TheBlaze’s S.E. Cupp was not impressed with his remarks.
“I cannot tell you how offended I am to hear Eric Holder, or anyone, talking about shaming gun owners,” Cupp said during a Thursday broadcast of “Real News” on Blaze TV. “I feel it inside. It makes my blood boil, because it so fundamentally misunderstands the Second Amendment.”
“The idea that he would paint me with the same brush as some criminal that he’s talking about is so offensive, but that is so common because most people who talk about gun control don’t distinguish,” she added.
“They are making law abiding gun owners defend their rights, which are already on the books.”
Her comments came after remarks made by The Blaze’s National Security editor Buck Sexton and conservative columnist Will Cain.
“It’s worth understanding what the other side wants here,” said Sexton. “At some point, they want to change the way people think about guns. That may take time. That may be a process. But the end of that process is not having people have guns.”
