Rep. Chris Stewart’s (R-Utah) town hall event reportedly erupted in shouting Wednesday as the lawmaker addressed constituents about the recent mass shootings.
Attendees of the event in North Salt Lake broke into yelling after Stewart’s first question focused on how the government could keep residents safe following the outbreak of gun violence, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
The event reportedly became so contentious that Stewart told attendees he would walk out unless it became more civil, which brought it back in line.
Stewart fielded one question and answered that everyone should condemn violence and racism, to which attendee Jamie Carter responded, “then why did you vote no to condemn racism?”

The people are just asking for reasonable legislation. All the politicians have are NRA talking points.

I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

Someone on my Facebook page posted a meme: “Cain killed Able with a rock. It isn’t a gun problem. It’s a heart problem.”
Answer: “Cain could not have killed 20 and wounded 27 people in 24 seconds with a rock. It’s a gun and an attitude problem.”

P.S. to Mods- what happened to the rec button that was working yesterday?
I feel much better since I gave up hope.

I don’t know. Looks like somebody tweaked something that shut them all down. They were working on the main forums yesterday, but not in Groups. I think they tried to fix that and something unforeseen happened.
