Congressman threatens the lives of Americans for exercising their constitutional right to bear arms.
Republican Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA), threatened the lives of Black Americans in a Facebook post for merely exercising their constitutional right to bear arms.
Higgins posted a photo of Black militia members marching with tactical gear and long guns. In the post, he claims that he would consider their armed presence enough of a threat for him to shoot them.
Louisiana is an open carry state, and Clay Higgins has previously supported other armed militia groups’ right to bear arms. The only discernible difference from the “threatening” photo he posted and the Louisiana Cajun Militia which just marched in Louisiana last week, is that these Americans exercising their constitutional rights happen to be black.
Rep. Clay Higgins currently has an A rating from the NRA.
