At anti-gun rally, Bernie Sanders staunchly defends ‘good guy with a gun’ argument (when it comes to his OWN safety)

Being an anti-gun, anti-greed socialist with three homes means never having to say you’re a hypocrite:

In multiple locations, students hit the streets and parking lots in their respective school districts to “walk out’” in solidarity with the Parkland students who are calling for more gun control after their school attacked by a deranged gunman. 17 students died in the attack. The former presidential candidate was part of a group of progressive congressmen addressing the Washington, DC march.

Sanders began a live stream of his speech on his Facebook page, which featured him wading through the crowd of cheering students and shaking hands. As Sanders traveled through the gun-control crowd, at least three heavily armed Capitol police officers could be seen protecting him and clearing a way for the Senator through the students. Multiple times in the live feed, the police can be heard asking the students to step back and move away from Sanders.

The people Sanders was addressing have ridiculed the argument that a “good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun,” but the sure didn’t call out Sanders. Apparently the only “good guys with guns” are the armed security details of anti-gun hypocrite lefties.

It’s a little ironic that some chose one of the most heavily fortified areas in the country for a rally about how guns don’t make people safer.
