Senator Kennedy Gets His Dog Whistle Handed To Him [View all]

Senator Kennedy tried to play a game of Gotcha but he was the one that got got.

By Chris capper Liebenthal — November 29, 2023

Senator John Kennedy (NRA-LA) was questioning Dr. Megan Ranney of the Yale School of Public Health about the causes of shootings in Chicago. Kennedy thought he could play a little game of Gotcha with Ranney, but he grossly underestimated her caliber.

Kennedy started with asking Ranney if Chicago had become "America's largest outdoor shooting range" because of law-abiding people who had guns for self-protection and/or hunting or if it was because of a number of criminals with rap sheets "as long as King Kong's arm."

Ranney calmly replied by pointing out that Mississippi, Louisiana and Missouri had higher firearm death rates.
