Army veteran and chaplain Nicholas Purpura exploded on Democratic lawmakers in a passionate speech during a New Jersey gun control forum, resulting in thunderous applause from the packed room. Though the video is from February, the veteran’s impassioned speech went largely unnoticed and is now getting some attention.
“You’re tying our hands,” Purpura said. “You’re tying our hands and you are aiding and abetting the criminal once again.”
He told the lawmakers they are “hypocrites” who should be removed from office and “guilty” of leaving citizens defenseless.
