Good luck trying to find a comment from South Carolina's Tim Scott on gun control since the massacre of six-year-olds in Newtown. Like his hero, Jim DeMint, and his bedfellows at the NRA, Scott knows when to keep a low profile.
But his pro-gun votes go way back, and there is no grey area in this issue for our Tim. Like fellow House wacko Louis Gohmert, who "just wish to God (the Sandy Hook Elementary School principal) had an M-4 in her office," Tim can't imagine a situation that wouldn't be improved by a gun.
How does he know? He prays on it. And, amazingly, he and God have 100% agreement on this issue, as well as all others.
God doesn't talk to me so much, so I can only assume what the conversation was like. I imagine God told Tim that our children might get gunned down from time to time, but, as God's buddy DeMint might say, "That's the way FreedomWorks."
And we may see his position on women's reproductive rights as intrusion, but I imagine Tim merely sees it as God giving us more babies to make up for the lives lost in acts of gun violence.
At least Tim's pro-gun control stance aligns well with his anti-abortion sentiments: he is 100% pro-life until birth.
