Country music star John Rich laid the 2A smackdown on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi one time at a birthday party for legendary crooner Tony Bennett.
According to Rich, Pelosi asked him about firearms in front of actors John Travolta, Vince Vaughn at the house of Netflix bigwig Ted Sarandos, who was hosting the party for Bennett, who was turning 85 at the time.
“You seem like a reasonable person,” Pelosi said to Rich. “Can I ask you a question about guns?”
“Absolutely,” Rich responded.
“Now, I’m not a hunter but I’m pretty sure if I shot a bullet and it didn’ hit a [deer] it would run away,” said the California Democrat. “So why does anyone need more than seven rounds in their gun?”
It seems as if Pelosi was setting him up for a “gotcha” moment.
Anyway, Rich carefully explained how his wife was back home in Nashville, TN, with their two young sons.
Rich then proposed a hypothetical scenario to Pelosi, one in which he, while at the party, receives a call for help from his wife because she hears the footsteps of an intruder coming up the stairs of their home.
Turning the tables on Pelosi, Rich then asked, “Madam Speaker, would you advise me to tell my wife to grab, the one [gun] with seven rounds or the one with 30 rounds?”
Rich claims he could see the lightbulb go off in Pelosi’s brain for a split second.
Evidently stunned, she replied, “Is that the way you look at that?
Rich, “Yes, ma’am.”
“Well, it was nice to meet you,” Pelosi said. She then walked off.
I’ve embedded a video of Rich telling the story above. If you know the originial source material, please mention it in the comment section as I’d like to give the interviewers proper credit.
Anyway what a great response by Mr. Rich. Remember it the next time someone asks you, “Why do you need more than 7 or 10 rounds in your firearm?”
