Cheney Attacks Parents’ Rights Push, Urges Gun Control

1 min read

Former Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming mirrored comments from Jenna Bush Jager criticizing the GOP’s focus on children’s books over gun violence in schools.

During NBC’s “Today” show, the daughter of former President George W. Bush gave her thoughts on the recent Nashville school shooting.

The shooter, a transgender man (biological female) who was in treatment for an emotional disorder, killed three children and three adults before she was fatally shot by responding officers.

“I have a friend in Nashville, so I knew of one of the little girls who was 9, who went to school yesterday and who didn’t get to come home,” Bush Hager said.

“We are worried about giving our kids Judy Blume and other books that are important to the history, to the fabric of our country? And we aren’t worried about sending our kids to schools where they’re not safe?” she continued. “Like I just don’t understand what has happened to a country that I know, you love, that I love.”

Cheney Inserts Her Opinion

Cheney took to Twitter to thank Bush Hager for her comments.

“Thank you @JennaBushHager for making this point today – if we really want to keep our children safe, we need to spend less time banning books and more time stopping the horrific gun violence in our schools,” Cheney tweeted.

Cheney consistently voted with House Democrats last year on gun control legislation, including what was deemed the “most sweeping gun violence legislation of the past 30 years”.

She said she fully believed the legislation would reduce violence and increase safety.

“Nothing in the bill restricts the rights of responsible gun owners. Period,” Cheney said at the time.

Since falling from the Republican party’s good graces after her endless vendetta against former President Donald Trump, and being utterly rejected at the polls by Wyoming voters, Cheney has been teaching at The University of Virginia’s Center for Politics.

  1. Hmmm…do you think, maybe, those kids in Nashville might have been safer if (at least) some of the teachers/staff were armed!!
    Apparently, the (very troubled) shooter chose the school because it was a “softer target” than another one she considered!!!
