Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw got some bad news.
Crenshaw’s quest to become the new John McCain hit a massive roadblock.
And then Donald Trump dropped the hammer on Dan Crenshaw with this brutal truth bomb.
The National Rifle Association has a long history of supporting gun control.
Every major piece of gun control legislation that passed over the last several decades sailed through Congress with the blessing of the NRA.
Even still, the left tried to blame the NRA and groups that are actually pro-gun for the tragedy in Texas.
The left’s pressure campaign caused Dan Crenshaw, anti-gun Senator John Cornyn and RINO Texas Governor Greg Abbott to skip attending the NRA’s annual convention in Houston which happened to be scheduled for just days after the horrible events at Robb Elementary School.
Crenshaw – who once spoke favorably of red flag laws, voted for a federal vaccine database and who attacked Tucker Carlson – skipped the convention so as not to arouse the ire of the corporate media and gun grabbers that Crenshaw plays footsie with.
On his “The Verdict” podcast, Texas Senator Ted Cruz gave his thoughts – as well as those of President Trump – on the RINOs like Crenshaw who skipped out on the convention.
“A lot of people dropped out. Senator you did not!” co-host Michael Knowles said to Senator Cruz. “You showed up, you gave a robust defense of the Second Amendment.”
Senator Cruz explained that he appeared at the convention because he believed it was important to defend the Second Amendment at a time when Democrats and the corporate media launched a full-court press to ban and confiscate firearms.
“I thought it was important to be there,” Senator Cruz stated. “I was disappointed to see so many others make the decision not to be there. In part because the media narrative that comes out of horrific crimes, horrific mass murders within seconds, the media immediately wants to politicize them and use them to advance their longstanding political agenda that they had moments before the murder occurred.”
Senator Cruz added that – unlike Crenshaw, Senator Cornyn and the other RINOs – it was important to stand up for gun rights in the face of an unprecedented smear campaign.
“The media and the Democrats, they want to label anyone who believes in the Second Amendment, anyone who defends the Second Amendment as responsible for this horrific crime and the NRA in particular is probably their favorite boogeyman,” Senator Cruz added.
Senator Cruz also shared that President Trump slammed RINOs like Crenshaw and Cornyn for skipping the convention as showing their true colors as being not real supporters of the Second Amendment.
“I chatted with Trump, right before he went on stage and thanked him for coming,” Senator Cruz concluded. “I said, look, ‘It was important that you came, it was important that you didn’t back out. Thank you for being here.’ And he of course agreed. And he had, let me just say, some choice words for some of the folks who chose not to be there.”
