When speaking to voters at a virtual campaign event, Representative Sean Casten of Illinois decided to lash out at law abiding firearm owners.
“If you are a constitutionalist, unless you’re a member of a well-regulated militia, tell me why you need to own a gun, right? Having small genitals is not a sufficient reason to own a gun,” said Casten.
Using the insult one typically hears about men who drive large trucks, Casten crudely suggested that those who own firearms are overcompensating for being ‘poorly endowed’.
Jeanne Ives, Casten’s Republican challenger in the November election, posted the video of his statement, and made a comment about his radical policies.
“Sean Casten sold himself to IL06 as moderate in 2018, he represents decent professional people. In this clip, he takes a radical position and describes those who oppose him in the most offensive, degrading terminology that he can possibly think of. Casten has shown us who he is — an extremist, and what he wants — to abolish freedoms and make government your keeper. Our question to voters: Is that what you want?” Murphy stated.
The National Rifle Association‘s official Twitter account also commented on his disdain for American firearm owners:
While Chicago is experiencing chaos and violence, NRA F-rated Illinois Congressman @SeanCasten makes stupid comments about gun owners who are just trying to defend themselves.
Keep insulting law-abiding gun owners while people die in your city, Congressman. pic.twitter.com/k4nBQZt5Nr

According to Jeanne Ives’ post about Casten’s campaign event, Casten also used his time speaking to voters to make the case to decriminalize all drugs, and referenced his own college drug experimentation.
Apparently, according to Casten, drugs are okay, but protecting yourself and your loved ones is not. At a time when riots, looting, and chaos flood the streets of our cities, a sitting Congressman thinks that outlawing firearms and legalizing drugs is a solution. This is yet another piece of evidence of the depravity of today’s Democrat party.
