And yet, all of the coverage has been pretty one-sided. Just Rep. Nevarez's side of the story, no mention of having contacted Rep. Rinaldi and him not returning the call or refusing to comment. This feels like a media character assassination attempt on Rinaldi to me.

Maybe Trump was right?

Yes, if a representative is a leftist, who gets elected because of non-legal invaders, physically attacks another representative who acted to enforce laws, then he is considered a hero. But if the attacked representative says he will respond to an attack, with his legally carried firearm, he is a crazy person. See how that logic works? :headscratch

Doesn't really show alot of the lead up, and definitely doesn't have the audio of what was said. But it's interesting to watch.

I wish there could be an investigation. If someone accused me of making a deadly threat I'd be charge, and my prized little card would be suspended until I could 'splain myself.

The same thing should happen here.

Supposedly he just said that he would "get" the congressman, so not sure it is a deadly threat. Childish, yes. Thuggish, yes. But not really a deadly threat.
