Isn’t it interesting that those who are so staunchly pro-gun can claim that they are non-violent and only interested in safe and rational gun ownership, and then quickly prove otherwise when someone pushes their buttons?

Gun nut Michele Fiore, a Nevada state assemblywoman, has proven that she is certainly pro-gun when her December calendar photo displayed her gun-toting family hoisting their glocks in the air. Fiore claims that her promotion of guns with her family was to prove that guns make a great gift and that protecting her family is what she thinks of first when she thinks of Christmas.

Now it has come to light that last month Assemblywoman Fiore made a threat toward all Syrian refugees in Paris, proving that her love of guns goes further than a hobby and into violent, reactionary territory.

“I am not OK with Syrian refugees. I’m not OK with terrorists. I’m OK with putting them down, blacking them out, just put a piece of brass in their ocular cavity and end their miserable life. I’m good with that.”
