Democratic Rep. Val Demings (Fla.) recently claimed that her First Amendment rights are “different” than those for other Americans.
The congresswoman made the assertion to a Facebook commenter on May 3 after advocating her desire for greater gun control in a post, the Daily Wire reported Tuesday.
The exchange started when Demings wrote on Facebook that she supports “common sense gun legislation” and “stand[s] against the gun lobby.”
Hours later, a Facebook user referenced an incident from February 2009, when Demings served as the chief of police in Orlando, Fla. Someone broke into Demings’ vehicle at the time and stole her agency-issued 9 mm Sig Sauer gun, ammunition, handcuffs, and baton. An internal-affairs investigator subsequently gave Demings a “written censure” for not properly securing her firearm in her car.
“Hey Val.. have they found that gun that was stolen out of your car??? Let’s talk responsible gun ownership first, before we take on other points..,” the commenter wrote.
