Cannabis is just a single of the motives the US is grappling with mass murder, according to a single Ohio state lawmaker.
Candice Keller, a Republican state representative from Middletown, OH applied her private Facebook web page as a tool to enlighten the American men and women of whom to blame for the current mass shootings. It was a laundry list that began with “transgender, homosexual marriage, and drag queen advocates” and went on to name violent video games, open borders, recreational marijuana, Obama, and Kaepernick.
She failed to mention white nationalists, the NRA, President Trump, the availability of semiautomatic assault rifles and 100-round ammunition drums.
Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones, who oversees law enforcement across Keller’s district had this to say:
“It’s an embarrassment. It is shameful. It does not reflect our celebration, our neighborhood, or the men and women who are hurting proper now,” Jones told The Washington Post on Monday. “She only left out men and women who appear like her.”
This is not the initially time Keller has produced controversial remarks. At a 2018 gun rights rally a month right after the Parkland higher college killings, Keller stated that a 15-year old survivor “would just as quickly be consuming Doritos and playing video games.”
Butler County Democratic Celebration Chairman Brian Hester has come just brief of asking her to resign.
“It was in particular offensive for Keller to say immigrants and LGBTQ acceptance played a part in mass shootings,” Hester stated. “El Paso has a huge immigrant neighborhood, and seven Mexican nationals have been amongst the dead. Some of the men and women she talked about in her rant, these men and women perform for me. They’re household members,” he continued, “She assaulted all of them.”
