‘Squad’ member claims guns have more rights than women in US: ‘It’s sick’

Gun Rights

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., argued Monday firearms have more rights than women in the United States.

The “Squad” member condemned the House of Representatives’ opposition to legislation aimed at limiting gun violence.

We have not voted on a single gun violence prevention bill under this Republican majority,” Rep. Tlaib wrote on social media. “Guns now have more rights in this country than women do. It’s sick.”

Congress has become insensitive to gun violence as mass shootings mount, according to the congresswoman. The Gun Violence Archive states 113 mass shootings have occurred this year.

“You know what’s more horrific? The fact that gun violence in our communities that is happening every single day doesn’t even make the news anymore,” Rep. Tlaib said. “Congress has become so numb – this institution – truly numb to the gun violence crisis in our country, that they’re not even paying attention any longer.”

The congresswoman claimed legislators who have refused to support restrictions on guns care more about the weapons then their children.

Every one of our colleagues that refuses to vote for commonsense gun violence prevention, I truly believe, have blood on their hands,” she stated. “Our children – I truly believe this – they deserve so much more than, again, our inaction and continued silence.”

OpenSecrets, an organization tracking money in politics, estimated the National Rifle Association spent more than $2.3 million on lobbying in 2023. The association has pressured legislators to avoid implementing gun restrictions, according to Rep. Tlaib.

“It’s disgusting that campaign donations from the NRA and gun manufacturers have bought inaction and bought the silence of many of my colleagues and blocked many, many important major reforms that we need to keep our communities safe across our nation,” she stated.

Former President Donald Trump has insisted gun violence represents a problem perpetrated by irresponsible gun owners, rather than the availability of guns. In February, he vowed to continue pushing to pass legislation for Second Amendment supporters if re-elected to the White House.

“I was proud to be the most pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment president you’ve ever had in the White House,” the former president claimed. “And with your support in 2024, I will be your loyal friend and fearless champion once again as the 47th president of the United States.”
