In the wake of the Nashville school shooting, far-Left Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) screamed at Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) on Wednesday that Republicans were “cowards” in a rant about gun control, prompting Massie to calmly respond that just as members of Congress have protection, children in schools need protection, too.

Bowman has made numerous statements in the past about defunding police, although he reportedly asked for a special police detail to protect his home in 2021.

Yelling at the top of his voice, Bowman screamed, “They won’t do anything to save the lives of our children at all. Cowards. Pressure them. Force them to respond to the question, ‘Why the hell don’t you do anything to save America’s children?’ and let them explain that all the way up until Election Day 2024. Let them explain that all the way up until Election Day 2024. They’re freaking cowards. They’re gutless.”

Massie, who happened to be walking by, interjected, “What are you talking about?”

“I’m talking about gun violence,” Bowman yelled.

“You know, there’s never been a school shooting in a school that allows teachers to carry,” Massie calmly responded.

That prompted an enraged tirade from Bowman, who bellowed: “Carry guns? More guns lead to more death! More guns lead to more death! Look at the data! You’re not looking at any data. You’re carrying water for the gun lobby! Look at the data. More guns lead to more death. States that have open carry laws have more death. States that have open carry laws have more death. Are you listening to what I’m saying? Children are dying! Nine-year-old children. The solution is not arming teachers. Have you ever worked in a school? Have you ever worked in a school? Have you ever worked in a school? Have you ever worked in a school? It’s a yes or no question. Have you ever worked in a school? You will not answer my question. Don’t stop and talk to me.”

“You’re screaming,” Massie pointed out.

“Okay. I’ll bring it down a notch,” Bowman said.

Massie turned to people videoing the incident. “All right folks. I’ve got a bill to repeal the federal —”

Bowman resumed yelling. “I worked in a school for 20 years!”

“I’m not talking to you anymore. You’re screaming. I’ve got a solution,” Massie said mildly.

Bowman then posited that his view was correct because of his prior career: “I was screaming before you interrupted me. I was a school counselor. I was a middle school principal. I was in cafeterias protecting kids every day of my career.”

Massie gestured to the security around them: “We’ve got guns here to protect us … And the kids should have somebody to protect them. Every school that’s allowed it has never had a shooting. Not even an accidental discharge in any of the schools.”

Massie later tweeted, “He wanted to discuss solutions to school shootings, but when I offered a solution he began shouting. When he asked for data, I gave him data, but then he just shouted more. Bring facts. There’s never been a school shooting in the hundreds of schools that allow staff to carry.”
