Popular Tea Party advocate Joe The Plumber penned a harsh open letter to the victims of the UCSB shootings on Tuesday.
According to the Daily Mail, Samuel Wurzelbacher – also known as “Joe The Plumber” – voiced his opinion on the tragedy after one parent of the victims blamed the NRA and petty government policies for his loss. Wurzelbacher posted the letter on conservative site Barbwire and stated that his constitutional right to bear arms shouldn’t be questioned every time a tragedy with guns surfaces in the United States.
“I am sorry you lost your child,” he said.”I myself have a son and daughter and the one thing I never want to go through, is what you are going through now.
But: As harsh as this sounds – your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights. Richard Martinez, whose son (Christopher) was among the murdered, choked back tears at a news conference, blaming politicians the next day: “The talk about gun rights. What about Chris’ right to live?” Martinez said – and much more. There are no critical words for a grieving father.
He can say whatever he wants and blame whoever he’d like – it’s okay by me. You can’t take a step in his shoes – at least I can’t. But the words and images of Mr. Martinez blaming “the proliferation of guns”, lobbyists, politicians, etc.; will be exploited by gun-grab extremists as are all tragedies involving gun violence and the mentally ill by the anti-Second Amendment Left.”
Plumber also included that his intentions for the letter are good and wants everyone, including the media, to stop blaming guns for Elliot Rodger‘s act of violence.
We still have the Right to Bear Arms and I intend to continue to speak out for that right, and against those who would restrict it – even in the face of this horrible incident by this sad and insane individual. I almost said “Obama Voter” but I’m waiting for it to be official.
I noticed the mainstream media have stopped the practice of immediately reporting the psycho maniac is a conservative Tea Party Republican Christian. Guess they’re sick of having to hide being wrong every time when it comes out the whacko votes Democrat?
Mr. Martinez and anyone calling for more restrictions on American’s rights need to back off and stop playing into the hands of the folks who merely capitalize on these horrific events for their own political ends.
Richard Martinez, who has become the face for the victims of the tragedy, stated previously that he wasn’t interested in what any politician had to say, unless it was a clear solution on how to prevent another shooting from happening. You can read more of Plumber’s letter here.
