Sen. Pro Temp Nathaniel McFadden of Maryland thinks it is better to allow a woman to be lit on fire by an abusive ex-husband than to risk allowing her to defend herself. Reprehensible.
"Thank you Mr. President and members of the Senate. In response to my esteemed colleague from Western Maryland, lets make this observation - Given this scenario, there was a situation in Prince George's County unfortunately of a woman who was abused obviously. And she was at work. And her husband came in and unfortunately and lamentably threw some sort of gasoline mixture on her and set her on fire in her work environment. Suppose she had opted to have a gun in that situation. This is a place of business. And had she attempted to defend herself during this occurrence, I just think that it may have been some unintended consequences in people who would be adversely affected . . ."Unintended consequences? I'll tell you who suffered unintended consequences, it was victim Yvette Cade who had been disarmed & rendered defenseless by the reprehensible "might issue" laws of Maryland.
