Democrat Lawmaker Says Congress Deserves Protection, But Not Citizens

Charlie Rangel 2

In an interview about gun control, New York Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel said most law abiding citizens just shouldn’t have guns.

Rangel was interviewed by the Daily Caller Tuesday evening.   The reporter was asking him about concealed carry permits:

“Getting a NYC concealed carry permit is so rare – the only people who tend to get it are the very connected, the very wealthy, or if you happen to know the right guy in NYPD…”

Rangel responded, “I’m glad to hear you say that very few people get it… we don’t need that many guns.”

The reporter pressed him further.   “But why can celebrities… A number of people in your district are law abiding citizens…. Many of them want to have concealed carry… Why should the uber-wealthy have protection, but individuals who are law-abiding citizens should not?”

Rangel: “I wouldn’t want them to have it. I know what you’re trying to say. Corruption is corruption, and it’s bad.  Law-abiding citizens just shouldn’t have to carry a gun. You’re not gonna push me in that direction,” he said

“But you’re protected by guns all over the place here in the capital…”

(laugh) … well, that’s a little different… we deserve… we need to be protected down here.”
