Herschel Walker’s answer on gun violence is literally nonsensical. It’s not the first time.

by News Update

Herschel Walker has a pattern of offering questionable answers, avoiding the media and has been accused of making threats against women. In today’s episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza breaks down how despite all that, he’s the GOP candidate for Senate in Georgia, capturing former President Donald Trump’s endorsement along the way.

Herschel Walker’s answer on gun violence is literally nonsensical

Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large

Less than 48 hours after a gunman killed 19 children and two teachers at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, Georgia Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker was asked on Fox about the nation’s gun violence problem — and what to do about it.

Here’s what he said Thursday morning:
“Cain killed Abel and that’s a problem that we have. What we need to do is look into how we can stop those things. You know, you talked about doing a disinformation — what about getting a department that can look at young men that’s looking at women that’s looking at their social media. What about doing that? Looking into things like that and we can stop that that way. But yet they want to just continue to talk about taking away your constitutional rights. And I think there’s more things we need to look into. This has been happening for years and the way we stop it is putting money into the mental health field, by putting money into other departments rather than departments that want to take away your rights.”

‘Guns Should Not Be In The Hands Of The Mentally Unstable,’ Says Senile Man With Nukes – "Listen, folks, this shouldn't be difficult," said the yammering old geriatric to a duck in the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. "The mentally unstable shouldn't have guns! It's dangerous! Think of what could happen, Jack! They could fire it blindly through their front door because they heard a noise, or leave it right out in the open where a Taliban terrorist could pick it up, or accidentally kill innocent people they thought were bad guys but turned out to be foreign aid workers!" The man then dove face-first into the pool because he thought he saw an ice cream cone down there. 📺🐑 #LGBFJB+ 📺🐑

Hmmmm. Looks like it’s time to troll Walker’s page…….

No one in their right mind would want to be involved in politics these days. If you're smart you work in the private sector. That's why we end up with the weirdest of the weird. It's a strange time.

Herschel Walker is too stupid to realize he is being used!

Republicans are using him for his black skin, the same way they used Herman Cain for his black skin and wanted to use that to fight Barack Obama.

The Right believes if Herschel Walker can steal just a couple of percentage points of the Black vote from Senator Raphael Warnock, that would be enough to get their guy across the finish line.

However for them to believe this is to believe the Black voting bloc is stupid!

Shameful!

Apparently though, republicans do not care if their representatives know anything at all.

Correct gun safety and control answers have not do not and will not come from people with likely and unknown levels of brain damage. Why voters put these people in positions of responsibility on a world with very few guard rails between them and disaster reflects worse on the voter's mental processes than the people with the brain damage. It's not news nonsense comes from Walker. It would be news if nonsense didn't come from Walker or any other brain damaged politician. As for the voter's propensity to elect these people and expect better results, bless their hearts.

Republican's flunky!

Walker is a textbook example of a sellout who doesn’t even know or want to know the basics of gun ownership evolution in this country. His nonsense on inserting scripture for political fodder is typical of politicians who pander to the people who who hold up the Bible in one hand and aim a gun in the other,… not for the purpose of being “their brother’s keeper”. He’s so preoccupied with towing the line he doesn’t realize that many, many people are arming up themselves to do battle with people who look just like him. Truly pathetic.

Hershey Walker is basically the president from Idiocracy, all the way down to his poor CTE-ravaged brain (or what's left of it anyway) 😂

He has been hit in the head too many times. You know it only gets people pissed off about taking away your rights when it involves guns or booze.
