Retired Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson is not only one of the few former Bush Admin. officials with a soul, but he might just be the last remaining soul in the Republican Party. Wilkerson is known to break party ranks to call out BS when he sees it, no matter the consequences. He previously called for a draft for the kids of rich Republicans, and he has defended President Obama’s strategy in the Middle East. Now he was taking on all the screaming, right-wing ammosexuals.
Appearing on a recent episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, Wilkerson weighed in quite heavily on the issue of guns. While stating that he is a gun owner, he made clear that it’s “not for home security reasons.” This is when things really heated. Right-winger Emily Miller of One America News Network made the fatal mistake of trying to argue with a logical military man.
The retired colonel said: We do not need large capacity magazines and weapons in the hands of civilians…I own guns to hunt with.
He added that in his 71 years of existence, he never once worried about anyone coming into his house and having to use guns to protect his family.
I have law enforcement and other people around me to protect me.
As you can imagine, this type of reasonable point made right-wing lady absolutely lose it.
