‘Miss me with your thoughts & prayers,’ Ayanna Pressley declares while advocating for gun control

News & Politics

In a tweet advocating for gun control, Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts declared, “Miss me with your thoughts & prayers.”

Pressley called for “universal background checks,” an “assault weapons ban,” “comprehensive red flag laws,” increasing “the purchasing age,” “closing the boyfriend loophole,” “& more,” and then went on to claim that “gun violence is a public health crisis and we must legislate to save lives.”

The post earned pushback on social media.

“No,” Ryan Petty wrote in response to the Democrat’s comments. Petty’s daughter Alaina was one of the victims killed in the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

“Because things always get better when the government gets involved,” Dr. Mark Young wrote with apparent sarcasm.

“Translation: The existing 10,000 gun laws and regulations on the books have done exactly nothing to stop violent crime in this country. So let’s do some more gun laws and regulations,” someone else wrote, adding, “Why am I skeptical?”

“It’s hard to always be wrong about everything, but Ayanna’s efforts have been unstinting,” someone else wrote.

The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

In addition to promoting gun control, Pressley is also a climate alarmist who has claimed that “climate change is an existential crisis and environmental justice is racial justice.”
