Charlie Rangel’s ‘I Deserve’ Slip-Up Shows Who Dem Congressmen Really Think Gun Laws Should Protect

New York Democrat Charlie Rangel spoke to the Daily Caller on Tuesday about a recent gun-permitting scandal that broke in New York City, leading to the arrest of four NYPD officers.

Rangel began by addressing the scandal directly:

“I didn’t know that briberies were involved in getting a gun, and that is wrong, but overall, if it is difficult to get a concealed weapon permit, I’m glad to hear that.”

The reason that Rangel was so “glad to hear that”? He explained:

“We don’t need that many guns. Law-abiding citizens just shouldn’t have to carry a gun. You’re not gonna push me in that direction.”

But when it was noted that Rangel himself had armed guards as a congressman…

“Well that’s a little different,” Rangel bloviated. “I think we deserve–I think we need to be protected down here.”

And America responded:

The NRA posted on Facebook:

“The problem with anti-gun politicians? They think they ‘deserve’ protection, but don’t believe average, everyday, law-abiding citizens do. Just ask Rep. Charlie Rangel.”

The Military Arms Channel also posted:

“…and then this little gem. Gun-grabber extraordinaire Charlie Rangel tells us that no one should use a firearm for protection… except him. Again, the elite class see themselves as above their own laws. A classic example of ‘do as I say and not as I do’.”

Rangel concluded his comments about the four arrested NYPD officers to the Daily Caller without a trace of irony: “Corruption is corruption, and it’s bad.”
