On Friday Loesch appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” with guest host Mark Steyn to discuss why an elected official has labeled her and the NRA a domestic security threat.
“This congressional member who sits, by the way, on the way committee for Department of Homeland Security as well as counterterrorism and intelligence — she’s got a lot of influence,” Loesch said. “I am not a domestic threat. I mean, for crying out loud, I’m a mom, Mark. I go to Walmart and I take my kids to Chick-fil-A, and I and millions of other men and women across the country, we belong to a group of likeminded individuals that support and advocate for the Second Amendment.
“We believe in the rights that are men and women in uniform fight for every single day. By the way Mark, a lot of those men and women in uniform are members of the NRA, and we also believe with the Second Amendment we support the First Amendment. I love a free press, but I also believe, Mark, in the free peoples’ right to fact check that free press,” she said.Click here for reuse options!
