President Joe Biden is a "hypocrite" for saying he is about "saving lives" in Saturday's signing of the $13 billion gun-control law, Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C., told Newsmax.
"I just listened to him, and he's a complete hypocrite," Norman told Saturday's "Wake Up America." He continued, "You talk about saving lives, where was the concern about not saving the lives of the Americans left in Afghanistan? Where's the concern about the total destruction of cities and riots and looting – lives that were lost there?
"Where is the concern that the shootings has been happening in Chicago and other areas got the strictest gun laws."
Despite the restrictions getting placed on the Second Amendment, Norman called it "a great week" for the Supreme Court overruling Roe v. Wade in states' right to put restrictions on abortions, hailing former President Donald Trump in placing a trio of conservative justices on the Supreme Court – all of which voted to overrule the half-century-old precedent that legalized abortions outside the of the Constitutional constructs of the legislative branch.
"The good news is it's been a great week – for what Supreme Court did, and for life, with the reversal of Roe v. Wade," Norman said. "It would have never happened without Donald Trump."
Norman noted the Senate's $13 billion gun control law was reactively throwing money at a problem amid recent mass shootings.
"He's a hypocrite," Norman repeated, talking about "saving lives" with gun control after rebuking the Supreme Court decision to protect life in the womb.
"This gun law should have never" been rushed into, Norman continued. "It was 80 pages. I was very disappointed that the Senate probably didn't read it, but [it is] just knee-jerk reaction.
"Red-flag laws are awful."
