U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “A Valentine’s Day weekend sleepover party for tween girls that included watching the film Titanic turned bizarre and tearful after parents say Oklahoma 5th Congressional District candidate Abby Broyles allegedly became drunk and berated some of the children in attendance,” NonDoc reports, adding:
“According to multiple accounts of the evening, Broyles became intoxicated and spoke derogatorily to some of the girls. She allegedly called one girl an ‘acne f***er,’ which prompted the girl to leave the room in tears. Broyles allegedly called another girl a ‘Hispanic f***er’ and another a ‘judgy f***er.’ At one point, Broyles allegedly vomited into a laundry basket and onto one girl’s shoes.”
For her part, Broyles says that never happened. She denied being at the house and said she was out of town.
That’s before Broyles admitted to being there to KFOR News, which is desperately trying to salvage its former employee’s political prospects. Then she says she was “misquoted.” That was before KFOR reported NonDoc played them a recording of her saying what they said she did.
Broyles denied the whole thing happened. Then she said she blacked out and doesn’t remember, except she remembers vomiting in a hamper. But she doesn’t have any substance issues.
Broyles said she doesn’t know the women involved, and this was a “political attack” that was “cooked up.” Then she said the homeowner is a good friend.
Broyles says she had an adverse reaction to wine with an unfamiliar medication her friend gave her. As a potential legislator who will write and enact bills, she must know that dispensing and taking drugs without a prescription is against the law.
There appear to be serious credibility issues at play here. Since, if given political power, Broyles will be in a position to affect our rights, and since AmmoLand is a website that promotes the right of the people to keep and bear arms, why not assess her credibility on that, and see if we can’t put together a bigger picture?
“Jim Inhofe will try to pit the safety of our families against our Second Amendment rights,” Broyles charged in 2020 on her website under the now-ironically titled “Keeping our kids safe” heading. “Abby will work to demonstrate it doesn’t have to be one or the other. Abby believes gun ownership is both an individual right and a constitutional right, and any attempt to distort that belief is false.”
So she’s “pro-gun”? Read a bit further:
“Abby supports enhancing universal background checks to help ensure those who shouldn’t have guns can’t get them. She will, at the same time, work to promote access to mental health services and expand protections for survivors of domestic abuse to prevent crises before they happen. And to be clear, Abby opposes any steps that may approach confiscation and will never support ‘taking your guns away.’”
Even the National Institute of Justice admits that background check “Effectiveness depends on the ability to reduce straw purchasing, requiring gun registration.” ATF has unlawfully compiled an almost-billion record registry and those records can be used to impose prior restraints without due process on both the accused and on gun owners whose property may have been declared prohibited in one of the Bureau’s interminable “rule” changes.” Any way you look at it, that adds up to confiscation and taking your guns away, despite Boyle’s cognitively dissonant and unkeepable promises.
“To be clear,” that’s hardly “false” or a “distorted belief.”
As for “it” not having “to be one or the other,” don’t tell us, Abby, tell Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown, which assures us:
“Abby Broyles has committed to governing with gun sense as a priority.”
They, at least, are more forthcoming than she is on what they want (for now): Pretty much “everything” covers it.
Broyles’ behavior brought into question her credibility and comparing what she says with her conduct brings us the answers. It’s curious how those who can’t – or won’t – control themselves are so bent on controlling the rest of us, and that really only leads to one appropriate response:
Have another drink, Abby. Just stay away from our guns. And our shoes.
