Florida State Representative Randy Fine appeared to be threatening President Joe Biden over the second amendment following Tuesday’s school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
“I have news for the embarrassment that claims to be our president — try to take up arms and you’ll learn why the Second Amendment was written in the first place,” Fine wrote in a tweet on Wednesday morning.
Fine’s tweet comes shortly after Biden made several calls for sane gun laws to be passed after 19 children and two teachers were fatally shot at Robb Primary School in Uvalde on Tuesday.
During a press conference after the shooting, Biden said, “I’ve spent my career as a senator and as a vice president passing sound gun laws. We cannot and will not prevent every tragedy. But we know they work and have a positive impact. When we passed the assault weapons ban, the mass shootings went down. When the law expired, mass shootings tripled.”
Biden continued, “For every parent, for every citizen in this country, we need to say to every elected official in this country, it’s time to act. It’s time – for those who are obstructing or delaying or blocking sane gun laws. we need to let you know we won’t forget.”
news week reached out to Fine’s office and the White House for comment.
After being criticized for his first tweet, Fine said posted a second and said: “The reaction exposes the lie of the left that they only want ‘common sense gun control’. They only want one thing – confiscation of guns and an end to 2A – and the idea that Americans will exercise their right to fight them is driving them crazy. boo hoo.”
Shortly after Tuesday’s shooting, Fine wrote on Twitter that he was praying for the victims and their families, saying, “May the killer spend eternity in Hell.”
This is breaking news and will be updated as more information becomes available.
