Over the weekend, the National Rifle Association (NRA) held its annual convention, which draws some of the biggest names in Republican politics, in Houston, Texas.
While several guests decided not to show up in the wake of the Uvalde, Texas mass shooting at an elementary school, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was there, but unfortunately experienced a scary moment when he was accosted by a crazed, radical liberal activist at a nearby restaurant.
The person who accosted Cruz pretended to be a supporter and first posed for a picture before entering into an anti-gun tirade, challenging Cruz to support a number of gun control legislative pieces, even though tighter gun laws, as proven in Chicago and New York, have zero effect on suppressing gun violence.
This is my new hero standing up to Ted Cruz.
He’s about to be attacked by every conservative media outlet, but you won’t see him back down.

The primary whack job who verbally attacked Cruz for social media credit became an instant hero with like-minded liberals who typically weigh in on such situations without logic or common sense.
“This needs to happen every day, any time he goes out in public. Don’t let him—or anyone else—forget,” feminist author Jessica Valenti wrote of the incident.
Others piled on, saying Cruz should “never have a moment of peace in his life,” and other deranged chants, while ignoring the fact that most of America’s gun violence happens in the inner-city streets of Chicago and other Dem-controlled cities with the strictest gun laws on the books, literally.
The NRA convention became an easy — and lazy — target for the radical left in the wake of the Uvalde mass shooting, even though the organization has nothing to do with a lone, deranged, psychopath teenager who killed 19 children and two teachers.
If liberals could restrain themselves from the knee-jerk hysteria for a few moments after something like this happens and focus on real solutions, like increasing access to mental health services and increasing security in schools, we might be able to begin to at least mitigate, if not eliminate, many future potential incidents.
