Michele Fiore is a second-term Republican member of the Nevada state assembly. Want to know what Michele thinks of guns? Why not ask her whole family?
Fiore posted that image of her large heavily-armed family on her official Facebook page on Monday.
The Las Vegas assemblywoman captioned the photo with the following traditional Christmas greeting: "It's up to Americans to protect America. We're just your ordinary American family.-With love & liberty, Michele"
Fiore knows her constituents well, as the majority of the comments are from people complimenting the family on the card embracing the spirit of the season and weapons of death and destruction.
While the photo was posted a few days prior to the mass shooting in San Bernardino where two shooters killed 14 people using legally-purchased guns, it was uploaded after the other 300+ mass shootings that have taken place in the U.S. this year.
Fiore released a statement about the San Bernardino shooting yesterday with the title "IF IT WALKS LIKE A DUCK, AND QUACKS LIKE A DUCK IT MUST BE A GOAT." In it, she calls the shooters "Jihadists," despite the fact that information on their motivation is still unclear, and says the shooting might have been stopped if it wasn't for political correctness.
Radicalized individuals, premeditated planning, Jihadist materials and communications on the individuals computer with the desire to inflict mass casualties among innocent civilians. Yet we see politicians and media outlets still trying to twist it into a case of simple workplace violence, so they can advance their narrative that we are not under assault by radical Islam, but simple gun violence. Violence that can be prevented if we would just adopt “commonsense gun laws” They don’t tell us how those laws would stop these attacks or how people who are already willing to break the law regarding mass murder would be stopped by another gun law.
What would make us safer is abandoning the political correctness that made the San Bernardino shooters neighbors refuse to report suspicious activity out of fear of being accused of racism. The political correctness that advocates that the best way to make us safer is to disarm the innocent. But most importantly being able to admit that if it looks like a terrorist attack, and sounds like a terrorist attack. It is a terrorist attack.
The photo wasn't just some fluke, as Fiore has a long history of posing with firearms. If you donate more than $25 to her political campaign, her website will send you her official “2016 WALK THE TALK SECOND AMENDMENT CALENDAR."
No word yet on which Republican presidential candidate will choose Fiore as their vice presidential candidate.
