Americans: TIME FOR YOU TO SAY 'NO! TO Dean Winslow APPOINTMENT!!!!!!

Trouble: Trump Nominee Advocates Ban on Semi-Automatic Rifles

Americans : Time for you to just say NO! to Dean Winslow, Trump's appointment 

By :

Dean Winslow, who was nominated by President Trump to be the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs, said in his confirmation hearing on Tuesday that he was not happy with the state of gun control in the U.S. today

In remarks one does not typically expect to hear from a Republican’s nominee, Winslow said that he disagreed with a system of law that allowed anyone off the street to purchase a semi-automatic rifle. 

Speaking in front of the Senate Armed Service Committee, the Stanford professor and former Air Force colonel spoke bluntly in regards to the church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

“I may get in trouble with other members of the committee just say how insane it is that in the United States of America a civilian can go out and buy a semi-automatic, like an AR-15, which apparently was the weapon that was used,” Winslow said. “I think that’s an issue not as much for this committee, but elsewhere.”

If the remarks weren’t disconcerting enough on their own, they were made more so by the fact that Winslow wasn’t even responding to a question about assault rifles in the first place

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen was, in fact, questioning Winslow about the military’s handling of domestic violence charges and whether shooter Devin Patrick Kelley should have received a dishonorable discharge from the Air Force after being court martialed. 

Winslow began by directly answering the question – saying the problem with Kelley’s access to a gun came from the Air Force’s failure to report his record to the FBI – before moving on to the above comments.

As Winslow predicted, his answer rankled several Republicans on the committee, including Chairman John McCain, who said, “I don’t think that’s in your area of responsibility or expertise.”

McCain was also troubled by a later Winslow assertion, that he was in favor of “therapeutic abortions” performed in the military.

“It speaks broadly to abortions performed for a recognized appropriate medical necessity,” Winslow explained. “Generally, when the life of the mother is at risk. That being said, this procedure should only be authorized as prescribed under existing statutory authority.”

“You better clean it up doctor or you are going to have trouble getting it through the Senate,” McCain warned, though whether he was speaking solely about Winslow’s pre-hearing questionnaire or his general demeano before the committee isn’t clear.

Obviously, it’s not necessarily the point of the Republican-controlled Senate or the White House to make sure that every nominee to every federal post agrees with GOP doctrine on every single issue, but Winslow’s view of an AR-15’s public availability is way off the map.  

We’re not saying it speaks to his capability of serving as the top mental health man in the Pentagon, but we wouldn’t blame Republicans for moving forward very cautiously with his confirmation.

Sounds like this guy doesn't have brains god gave a goose.

The guns we have are to protect us and America should we ever be attack on our home land.

He needs to talk to Gen. Dunford and he would find out that is the reason our military doesn't use single shot rifles anymore. They were OK when fighting the British but we had to upgrade from the battles waged over 200 years ago.

Any government Official that advocates infringing on our Constitutional gun rights or any rights needs to be fired and maybe jailed but most definitely personally sued for endangering our families and country. He is also a National Security Risk.
