GOP Lawmaker Attacks Parkland Teens: ‘A 15-Year-Old Cannot Tell Me That My Constitution Needs To Change’

A gun-loving Ohio Republican lashed out at Parkland school shooting survivors during a pro-gun rally at the statehouse, saying that she was “born with the right to carry,” and that she did not have to listen to teenagers calling for new gun safety laws.

Speaking before a crowd of NRA supporters in Columbus earlier this month, State Rep. Candice Keller (R-Middletown) said:

“A month ago, we weren’t really having this conversation, and all of a sudden a 15-year-old on television who would just as soon be eating Doritos and playing video games wants to tell me that my constitution needs to be changed. Really?” Keller said, reported the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Keller, a Trump supporter who backs a proposed “stand your ground” law in Ohio, insisted she did not have to listen to teenagers calling for new gun safety laws after a shooting last month killed 17 students and teachers at their Florida high school.

“I was born with the right to carry,” Keller told the crowd at the March 10 gun rally.

The Middletown Republican insisted that carrying a gun made her feel safer.

“Nothing empowers women more than carrying, so firearms protect me against offenders,” she said. “My husband is not always with me.”

Other speakers at the event falsely claimed that all mass shootings are committed by Democrats.
