New Hampshire lawmaker pushes for buying guns with EBT cards

New Hampshire lawmaker pushes for buying guns with EBT cards
Arm up.

Does Democratic State Representative Timothy Horrigan have a diabolical plan to ensure that society’s least responsible people get hold of plenty of guns, thus proving how dangerous guns are?  (Call it the Eric Holder/Hillary Clinton Maneuver.)

Is he making a difficult choice between left-wing priorities?  Is “EBT rights versus gun restrictions” a priorities dilemma like the one posed by “Muslim barber’s diversity/victim quotient versus lesbian customer’s diversity/victim quotient”?

Or is Horrigan just a nut?  As Kimberly Morin points out at the Manchester Examiner, Horrigan consistently votes against Second Amendment rights, and in fact has a lower NRA rating than most Democrats in nut-fringe-left Massachusetts.  He’s exceptionally anti-gun.  His passion for ensuring that EBT funds can be used to purchase firearms would seem to argue an overriding obsession with preventing any sort of restriction on EBT use.

Which is not an agenda-topper that’s cropping up on bumper stickers, as far as I can tell.  But, hey, we report; you decide.  See Mr. Horrigan argue for EBT-gun-purchase rights in the video below.
