Democrats and their friends in the media are in full bully mode. Pretty much anyone who doesn’t agree with them will be mocked and ridiculed, even when they make a perfectly logical comment.

Her point was the issue of whether guns belong in American schools is “best left to locales and states to decide.” But social media went off the rails after the “grizzlies” comment, with most people saying it’s preposterous to suggest a gun should be in a school, around schoolchildren, due to a threat of bears.
