Freshman Congresswoman Haley Stevens (D-MI) held a contentious town hall at a gun club in Commerce Township, MI on Tuesday where she called for widespread gun control and the end of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
“This is why the NRA has got to go! The NRA has go to go!” Stevens exclaimed, as the divided crowd roared in response.
The town hall took place in the indoor gun range of the Multi Lakes Conservation Association, a group that regularly hosts the NRA and other pro-gun events. Republican organizers in the area explain that the venue was duped into holding the event by deceptive Democrats who misrepresented their real intentions.
“I think they just snuck it in here. I can tell you that the members of this gun club aren’t happy about it,” explained 11th Congressional District Republican Party Chairwoman Meshawn Maddock to FOX 2 News.
“Somehow, Fems for Dems booked this event using a different name. The sweet woman that I talked to said that it said “Fems for Life” in her calendar,” she explained.
While Stevens may have wanted a photo op in a gun club to use against the NRA and defenders of the 2nd Amendment, many patriotic Republicans crashed the event, and it did not go according to plan. The event was abruptly halted over an hour before it was scheduled to end, and Stevens ducked out shortly afterward instead of facing one-on-one questions from her constituents.
“The 11th Congressional District isn’t progressive,” Maddock said. “It’s Republican. And Republicans support the Second Amendment and we like our legally owned guns. You’ve got a lot of nerve holding an anti-gun rally in the heart of gun-country. So we will rally voters to show you what voters think about two things. First, your lack of support for our Second Amendment. Then your poor decision to select this location for your town hall.”
Stevens, although not officially a member of the far-left “Squad,” certainly echoes their values when it comes to the 2nd Amendment. She is one of the Congress’ most fervent advocates against gun rights.
“I have made gun violence prevention one of my top priorities since the day I was sworn in to Congress,” she said in a statement on Tuesday.
“The U.S. House of Representatives has taken major steps forward to protect our communities from gun violence, passing the first major gun safety legislation in a generation to expand background checks to all firearm sales. Now, we are calling on Senate Majority Leader McConnell to allow a vote on this pragmatic, bipartisan legislation so we can prevent dangerous weapons from falling into the wrong hands,” she added.
The 11th Congressional District of Michigan is expected to be a competitive race during the next election, as it was a district won by President Trump in 2016 that was flipped to the Democrats in the 2018 mid-term elections when Trump was off the ballot. Asian-American Trump supporter Whittney Williams is the only declared Republican challenger against Stevens heading into 2020.

House Republicans Hoping to Get Americans Back to Work By End of April
It’s a aspiration, not a plan.
House Republicans are considering plans that would help Americans get back to work by the end of the month. Kevin Brady of Texas told reporters on a conference call that the caucus is preparing preliminary plans that phase the workforce back in at the end of April.
“Our focus is on locking down the virus while we’re taking the steps now to prepare to reopen the economy by the end of the month if the virus permits.”
Brady was careful to qualify that there’s no guarantee the public health situation in the United States would allow such a development.
“I think we should all expect the jobs, the unemployment in the GDP numbers to feel brutal over the short term. It’s because they are. This economy is taking hits like we’ve not seen in most of our lifetimes. But it is just a short-term hit.”
Initial social distancing guidelines set forth by the White House in conjunction with the CDC were extended from two weeks to April 30th earlier in the week, suggesting the executive branch may be cautiously looking towards the end of April to begin phasing out the unprecedented disruptions to everyday American life.
It is worth noting that an early cease to social distancing and commonsense measures to deter the spread of the Chinese coronavirus could prove to be even more harmful than the negative impacts to the economy since the beginning of the virus-related recession. This can’t be rushed. But the consequences of the economic damage are real, and all Americans should look to get everyday economic life up and running against as soon as possible.
