Rep. Scott Taylor (R-Va.) commented on a tweet posted by Tim Kaine, and he did not hold back.
Taylor, a former Navy SEAL serving Virginia’s 2nd District, is extremely supportive of the NRA and Second Amendment freedoms.
Kaine posted criticism about magazines, comparing the ones that deer hunters are allowed to use with the high-capacity magazines that are legal to purchase and have been used in mass shootings:
That’s the magazine limit allowed in Kentucky while hunting deer.
Yet when we call for similar limits on assault weapons used in mass shootings, we’re told it violates the 2nd Amendment.
Why are we valuing deer lives more than human life?

However, Taylor came in swinging with his comment on the tweet.
That, my friend, is because the 2nd amendment is not for deer hunting. https://t.co/CFLzMgEABl

Some users criticized his comment, but Taylor replied, citing his experience in the military.

According to the congressman’s website, one of his main goals is to ensure veterans and their families are taken care of by the government.
