Republican Candidate Posts His Gun With “Welcome To Tennessee, Obama” Message On Facebook
By Nancy Hennen
Republican Congressional nominee Brad Staats posted a photograph of his black and silver Colt semi-automatic pistol along with a disconcerting message for Obama. Staats’ message contained a “welcome greeting” with a photograph of his gun directed at the President. Staats’ message read:
Many people in Tennessee keep asking me about my opinion on the Second Amendment rights. Apparently Tennesseans are part of that crazy crowd that Obama says “cling to their religion and guns.” Well, then I must be part of that crazy crowd. Welcome to Tennessee Mr. Obama, where we appreciate our 2nd Amendment rights and the Constitution that was wisely given to us by our founding fathers.
The Secret Service had already been alerted on the message and photograph and will be investigating the loaded missive to the president if necessary, according to The Tennessean.
