Daryl Fisher is the Democrat candidate for sheriff in Bancombe County, North Carolina. Mr. Fisher recently attended a meeting with anti-gun rights group Moms Demand Action in which he made a rather off-color, tasteless joke regarding law-abiding citizens who just happen to own guns.
Here’s the money quote from the video:
“You’ve heard people say, ‘You’ll have to pry my guns from my cold, dead hands’…OK!”
It’s worth noting that Daryl Fisher has apologized for his tasteless remark that seemed to advocate violence against political opponents in the insane powder keg that is American society in the age of Trump. Actually, Fisher’s statement was less of an actual mea culpa and more of a “YOU WINGNUTZ ARE SO STOOPID, GAWD” backhanded faux-pology:
The sheriff hopeful told North Carolina’s The News & Observer on Monday that “a one-sentence clip from that meeting has been taken out of context and circulated on social media with a false interpretation of what I actually said.”
Fisher still issued an apology about the joke, saying it was a “mistake” he should not have made and affirmed his support for the Second Amendment, although he favors some gun-control measures.
“There is one statement that many up to now have taken offense to … I admit the joke was a mistake and I should not have joked,” Fisher wrote on his Facebook page, noting that the government “cannot take away any guns or any items that were legally sold before any new laws take effect.”
“Responsible gun owners have nothing to worry about. We have to do something different because what has been done is not working,” he added.
Gee, why on earth would we ever need the Second Amendment? It couldn’t be because Democrat leaders at all levels are willing to kill us en masse in order to enact their fascist utopia of a gun-free People’s Republic of America. That’s just ridiculous!
After all, the #MarchForOurLives movement that sprung up in the wake of the (completely preventable) Parkland school massacre is not about gun confiscation.
No one out there wants to take your guns away.
Stop being crazy paranoid wingnuts.
After all, Leftist leaders and pundits like Daryl Fisher are just searching for common sense gun laws. Why make it any easier for a madman to kill people wholesale? #MarchForOurLives is all about protecting children across the country. It’s not like anyone on the Left is calling for the government to repeal the Second Amendment.
