(National Sentinel) Uncivil: National Rifle Association spokeswoman and conservative commentator Dana Loesch told an audience at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) event Thursday she needed a security detail to be escorted out of a CNN-sponsored “town hall” event focusing on the Florida school shooting.
“I want to make this super obvious point,” Loesch said. “The government has proven that they cannot keep you safe. And yet, some people want all of us to disarm. You heard that town hall last night. They cheered the confiscation of firearms. And it was over 5,000 people.
“I had to have a security detail to get out,” she said of the Sunrise, Fla. event. “I wouldn’t be able to exit that if I didn’t have a private security detail.
“There were people rushing the stage and screaming ‘burn her.’ And I came there to talk solutions and I still am going to continue that conversation on solutions as the NRA has been doing since before I was alive,” she continued.
Loesch said the same Americans who call President Donald J. Trump a tyrant want him to unilaterally ban and confiscate guns, in spite of the Second Amendment.
“The government can’t keep you safe and some people want us to give up our firearms and rely solely upon the protection of the same government that’s already failed us numerous times to keep us safe,” she said.
“And then they also call Trump a tyrant but they say they want the president to also confiscate our firearms? Try to figure that one out,” Loesch said.
Loesch also called out CNN for intentionally hosting such a rowdy event, where most attendees were only there to shout at her and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., not discuss practical solutions to school shootings.
She also called out the “legacy media” for refusing to hold similar “town halls” for “sanctuary cities” that lose citizens to illegal aliens or “grieving black mothers in Chicago,” where mostly young black men are gunned down daily.
