On Wednesday evening, a Democrat Rep. started screaming at Republican lawmakers about gun control as they walked out of the Capitol building.

In a highly unprofessional, juvenile display, Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) screamed at Republicans as they left the House Chamber, putting on a show for the people recording on their phones.

“They’re cowards!” yelled Bowman. “They’re all cowards. They won’t do anything to save the lives of our children at all. Cowards!”

“They’re freaking cowards. They’re gutless!” Bowman continued, as members of Congress hurried past Bowman trying to avoid involvement in his unhinged rant.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) stopped as he passed by Bowman and quietly asked what he was screaming about.


“I’m talking about gun violence,” Bowman yelled back.

“There has never been a school shooting in a school that has allowed teachers to carry,” Massie calmly told Bowman.

Bowman, who didn’t have a comeback for Massie’s comment, got even angrier, yelling, “Carry guns?! More guns lead to more death! Look at the data. They’re not looking at any data.”

Another Rep. walked by the pair and put his hand on Bowman’s arm, seemingly asking him to calm down. Bowman didn’t pay him any attention and just got louder.

“States that have open carry laws have more death,” Bowman yelled, then yelled the same exact thing but louder, continuing to repeat the only “data” he had.

Massie then asked Bowman to calm down, which only riled Bowman up more.

“Calm down?! Children are dying!” yelled Bowman.

The angry Rep. then yelled over and over, “Have you ever worked in a school?”

Massie then tried to walk away from Bowmna, clearly sick of his irrational screaming, and addressed the bystanders that were recording the incident.

However, Bowman followed him and grabbed onto him, continuing to scream in his face, yelling that he “worked in a school for 20 years.”
