Teddy Turner doesn’t like the notion of gun buyback programs … in fact the would-be Congressman ripped them a new one on his Facebook page.
“Participating in a gun buy back because you believe that the criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you believe that the neighbors have too many kids,” Turner wrote, parroting a popular quote among Second Amendment advocates.
Turner’s entry prompted one of his Facebook friends to suggest that he not “shoot (himself) in the foot” on social media.
“I would rather lose and be me than win and be someone else,” Turner replied.
Good for him …
We’ve yet to make up our mind about Turner’s candidacy – which has had its share of missteps – but when it comes to government-run “buyback” programs, we like the cut of his jib. Turner is one of sixteen candidates running for the South Carolina first congressional district seat vacated earlier this year by newly appointed U.S. Sen. Tim Scott.
UPDATE: “Cut of your jib?” Really? You bitches don’t sail?
