When pro-gun advocates showed up to a city council meeting in Poughkeepsie, New York, earlier this month, Councilman Joe Rich, a Democrat representing the city’s 2nd Ward, came unraveled.

Members of the Dutchess County chapter of the Shooter Committee On Political Education attend a June 15 meeting to oppose a proposed anti-gun ordinance that would require gun owners to lock up all of their firearms in Poughkeepsie, the Poughkeepsie Journal reported. But Rich didn’t seem to appreciate the dissenting opinion on the issue.

“I know why you’re doing this, because you don’t want us to have a law…that would cause you a lot of trouble out there,” Rich said to the pro-gun advocates. “You don’t want them to work…that’s the truth. You’re here to make sure that these laws never get a chance to find out if they are going to work or not.”

When the Democrat also accused those opposing the proposal of not being residents and not “loving” the city, one person in attendance spoke up. The man said to the councilman, “There are people here that live in the 2nd Ward…You know I live in the 2nd Ward.”

His comment made Rich snap.

“Quiet! You’re not recognized!” Rich shouted. “Shut up! You’re not recognized…I’m tired of having people from the audience interrupt me! I’ve listened to all you people from 5 p.m.! Shut up!”

Rich later said he “didn’t mean to lose” his temper, but he “felt it was abusive for them to come there in large numbers, wearing their shirts.”

“They were accusing us of taking their second amendment rights. I got upset, so I stood up — I don’t have to be intimidated by outside organizations like that,” he added

So exercising our 1st Amendment rights is "abusive".  Interesting sentiment.

I love the part where he says the laws need to be passed to see if they work.  Why would we pass laws while having no idea if it is going to work or not?

This is liberal hubris at its best.

It's hubris alright, but there's nothing liberal about it; it's totalitarian.

The "audience" he's tired of interrupting him are CONSTITUENTS.

CONSTITUENTS=Peasants.....same difference to this little dictator.

Don't forget to outlaw pitchforks, tar, and feathers as well.

How DARE the governed population speak out!  Don't they know he knows what's good for them?  He's just trying to ensure that there will be no civil uprising against the government.  Doesn't matter that he's also removing their capability to defend themselves.  It's not like the miscreants and ne-er-do-wells are going to come after HIM.  That's a peasant's lot in life, to be robbed by both burglars and the government.  He CAN'T have them protecting themselves.

I wouldn't be surprised if that guy was demanding an armed police escort on his way out of the building.
