Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst talked about her sidearm in 2012.
During an National Rifle Association event in Iowa in 2012, state Sen. Joni Ernst, now the Republican nominee for Senate in the state, said she carries a 9-millimeter gun around everywhere and believes in the right to use it even if it’s against the government if they disregard her rights.
“I have a beautiful little Smith & Wesson, 9 millimeter, and it goes with me virtually everywhere,” Ernst said during a speech at the NRA’s Iowa Firearms Coalition Second Amendment Rally in Searsboro, Iowa, as flagged by The Huffington Post on Thursday. “But I do believe in the right to carry, and I believe in the right to defend myself and my family — whether it’s from an intruder, or whether it’s from the government, should they decide that my rights are no longer important.”
She says she has the right to defend herself and her family from thugs or a government that attempts to take her rights. Pretty tame stuff, right? The moonbats at Talking Point Memo are apoplectic. Here are sample comments.
How can someone who doesn’t believe in the rule of law be a Senator in the country that encoded the idea that no one is above the law into its very DNA?

Frigid stepford bitch.
Does that make her guilty of making terroristic threats against the government?
I really don’t understand how an anti-government extremist is tied in a race for U.S. Senator. This absolutely mystifies me. Have we really gone this far down the shitter?
If she’s dumb enough to challenge the government with a little 9mm, then she’s WAAAY too dumb to serve in the Senate … even from Iowa.
Anybody point out that what she is advocating is High Treason?
she is advocating over-throwing the Government if she feels they are somehow wronging her…That would be advocating Treason.How do these people even get this far in Politics?
Obama’s got some hellfire missiles that’ll disabuse this fucking bitch of that notion.
Don’t worry, as soon as there is a Republican president, the left will all get back to talking about armed revolution again. The puppy-dog subservience to the state of these hypocrites only applies when they serve leftists.
