About 25 protesters gathered outside the home of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Sunday night over the issue of gun control, with one shouting, “Just stab the motherf**ker in the heart, please!”
McConnell was recovering from a fall at the home over the weekend that left him with a fractured shoulder. The protesters want the Senate to vote on a gun control bill passed by the Democrat-controlled House in the wake of mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas.
Police in Louisville said that the protesters were peaceful and security barriers prevented them from approaching too close to McConnell’s house. The protesters banged objects and shouted outside the home.
“We’re out here because [McConnell] wants thoughts and prayers, when another white man massacres people,” the same protester later said. The hashtag “#MassacreMoscowMitch” was also trending on social media Sunday night.
Apparently even though guns are not okay, knifing someone in the heart is just fine. Do these people even hear themselves?
