Rep. Billy Long (R-MO) blames gun violence on abortion: “Something has happened to our society. I go back to abortion, when we decided it was okay to murder kids in their mothers’ wombs. Life has no value to a lot of these folks.”

When Billy Long (r) was growing up in Springfield, Missouri…
Some of the responses:
it’s the hate and guns.
Oddly enough, zero mass murders have been committed by aborted embryos.
Moreover, the overwhelming majority of mass shootings in the US are committed by males, none of whom has had an abortion.
I would bet no mass shootings have been perpetrated by women who have had abortions.
He’s proof that some people shouldn’t breed.
Way to spin that bullshit
FFS it’s always the woman’s fault
Billy Long, known oxymoron.
It’s like they are throwing everything at the wall trying to get something to stick because they know that they’re going to lose on this issue…finally.
I wouldn’t hold my breath.
Abortion joins the long list of things right wingers blame mass shootings on. “Easy access to firearms” still hasn’t made the list.
Ah so a crime committed only by men is now a woman’s fault.
He doesn’t actually believe what he’s saying. He’s betting everyone who’s desperate to protect gun industry profits and their own dependence on personal firepower for their sense of self-worth and superiority will fall all over themselves to pretend they believe it, too.
It’s Billy Long (r). He believes it.
They think that, that way, they can siphon off some of the genuine horror people are feeling about the cold-blooded murder of 20 9-11 yo children and two of their teachers and redirect that energy toward their fascist bodysnatching goals.
I blame the designated hitter rule.
(As long as we’re arbitrarily blaming unrelated things that we don’t like)
Hey, maybe cutting taxes would also reduce the numbers of mass shootings too?
Does Rep. Billy Long know that Missouri has one of the highest gun death rates per capita in this country?
He doesn’t care.
Weird how these thing happen more often in states with more restrictions on abortion.
Blaming women in general now. That didn’t take long.
Amazing how other countries allow and even pay for Abortions, yet no mass school shootings.
Maybe its the meth. Or wages that can’t support a family. Or wages that are so stagnant no one can buy a home.
Ol Billy doing the Todd Akin strategery.
The abortion rate in the US is the same as other first world countries. But the gun violence rate in the US is way higher.
Could too many guns in the society be the cause?
there could be a meteor strike and these aholes would blame women.
Billy Long (r) is running in the republican primary for the open U.S. Senate seat in Missouri.
