We know who the enemies are. The enemies are the hypocrites and the scoundrels who stand up in the United States Senate, including last night, and talk about what a tragedy it is,” Barnicle said. “And then they actively work against progress in terms of controlling the distribution of guns in this country.

They are cowards. Ons weet dit,” he claimed.
