Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla.)

Rep. Val Demings (D.-Fla.) told a man commenting on her gun control advocacy that he was wasting his time – because her right to free speech "is different" from his.

The Daily Wire reports that, when Stephen Mercer reminded Demings on Facebook that she had been censured for carelessness with her firearm back in 2009, she invoked her special right:

“When a commenter asked Demings if they ever found her stolen handgun and suggested that she be more responsible with her own firearms before talking about gun control for others, Demings offered a peculiar reply:”

The Daily Wire contacted Rep. Demings’ communications director, Caroline Rowland, for clarification of Demings’ claim. But, Rowland said the Democrat “will have no comment on that.”
