An Illinois Democratic state representative, Sean Casten, accused gun owners of “having small genitals,” adding that they needed a far more convincing reason to justify owning of firearms. The representative was speaking during the DNC virtual event that has recently turned into an anti-gun propaganda platform.
“If you are a constitutionalist, unless you’re a member of well-regulated militia, tell me why you need to own a gun, right?” Rep. Casten asked. “Having small genitals is not a sufficient reason to own a gun.”
One netizen had a comprehensive response for Rep. Casten.
“My questions to Rep. Casten. So what? What if it’s, in fact, true? How does it matter? Are genitally challenged people somehow less deserving of respect? Does your statement include women? Do women who own guns have “small genitals”? Why are you so concerned about their Junk?” Someone asked on Twitter.
However, his Republican opponent, Jeanne Ives, sent a detailed response to the Daily Caller News Foundation in an email.
“Sean Casten references Justice John Paul Stevens’ dissent for the minority in Heller v. DC, which established the individual right to self-protection. Since he likes history, John Paul Stevens – after he left the bench – wrote an op-ed calling for the abolition of the Second Amendment.”
While in no way do we feel personally attacked by his remarks, Rep. Casten’s comments could only be described as juvenile and lacking in both wit and decency. His lack of a better argument against gun ownership shows that gun control activists will grab any flimsy excuse to push their anti-gun agenda. Additionally, by describing the opponents of his fascist gun control ideas in derogatory terms, Casten paints himself as a shallow and intolerant anti-gun extremist.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
