Markey always has been an idjit, but the new commie demoncrap reps, like AOC & Omar must have put the zap on his brain.
‘military weapons’ have been anything and everything you can think of, so he must mean that he wants Police to be completely unarmed.
I don’t think he has the intellectual capacity to conclude that the citizenry who, seeing the riots and Police inaction, can, will, and are forming self defense groups to provide for their own security.
And that they know all too well which political party is causing this.
But we will have to wait for the election results to see if this idiocy will influence them at the ballot box.
Portland police routinely attack peaceful protestors with brute force. We must disarm these officers, and every other police department in America, of weapons of war, and enact a nationwide ban on tear gas, rubber and plastic bullets, and bean bag rounds. https://t.co/PDZcjhmSLB

“I’ve been on the record. I support law-abiding citizens to be armed, but criminals?” the police chief asked, clearly confused. “And so it’s okay to attack police officers and then, everyone always says one thing: ‘these were peaceful protestors.’ So I guess when you’re throwing Molotov cocktails, railroad spikes, other projectiles, you’re using green lasers, I guess that constitutes being ‘peaceful.'”
