Two guns stolen from lawmaker's home, including one he brought to Whitmer speech

Source: Detroit News

Lansing, MI — An Upper Peninsula lawmaker known for his Second Amendment advocacy had two firearms stolen from his Lansing home over the weekend.

One of the firearms is the same one Rep. Beau LaFave, R-Iron Mountain, brought to the House of Representatives Jan. 29 ahead of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s State of the State address.

LaFave posed with the pistol outside the House chambers shortly before the governor’s address and posted the photo on Twitter, with the message:

“I open carried in the capital (sic) today to protest Governor Whitmer’s proposed unconstitutional gun laws. If she wants to disarm law-abiding Michiganders, she can start with me on the House Floor. Tonight is the Michigan State of the State. #SOSmiSOTS”

He had them stolen right out of his apartment. No safe. No trigger locks. Loaded, and sitting around the pad.

After he told the Governor “Come and take them”.

Well, somebody did.

Now he is afraid somebody might hurt someone with them.

1. It's almost like the 2nd Amendment needs something in it

about regulating firearms.

4. Yeah, you'd think maybe something about just people who have a reason to have them

Maybe like a well regulated militia or something.

2. I wonder how many lectures this a-hole has given libruls on "responsible gun ownership".

That's all we hear from them whenever the subject of gun control is raised. Well, this clown certainly doesn't seem very responsible. Now someone will probably get killed with the guns he carelessly left lying around his man cave. Jagoff.

6. Lafave should be partially responsible for any crimes committed and

any damage done by his weapons since he failed to secure them.

7. I question how well he had them secured if a cursery search turned them up. Under a ...

pillow, under the bed, in a drawer, under a couch cushion, under the couch are not secure hiding places.

10. He looks like a candidate for shooting off a toe or two. He really does not look comfortable.

13. More than I cared to learn about Beau LaFave in this article:

Rep. LaFave plan makes hunting possible for hunters with disabilities



http://gophouse.org/rep-lafave-plan-makes-hunting-possible-for-hunters-with-disabilities/

He demands equal rights for all hunters.

9. And he doubles down

"“I didn’t leave them lying on the counter so anybody casing the joint could see it at the time,” LaFave said. “To require any gun owner in the state of Michigan to do anything more than that would be an infringement of their constitutional rights.”"


He's made himself look like a fool.

Some more info from the article:

"Both firearms were loaded and hidden within the home and the front door was dead-bolted, he said."

https://amp.detroitnews.com/amp/4669515002

Deadbolts do little to prevent a break in unless one takes steps to reinforce the entry way.

... to accuse the governor of stealing those guns.

15. A pity the thieves didn't use it on him.

Yes....I said it...and I'm standing by it. Karma pays far more attention to sniveling little shits like LaFave than me.
