Governor Cooper responds to Lt. gov. Robinson and calls her “dangerous”

RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – Gov. Roy Cooper (D) responded Tuesday to Lt. gov. Mark Robinson at the National Rifle Association speech and called them dangerous.

in one tweetCooper posted a clip of Robinson’s speech over the weekend, in which the Republican threatened to deploy his AR-15 if “the government gets too big for their pants.”

“This is dangerous and not who we are as patriotic North Carolinians,” Cooper tweeted. “An elected official who has sworn to uphold the constitution and advocates the violent overthrow of our government is a threat to our security.”

Robinson was speaking at the NRA conference in Houston over the weekend, days after the mass shooting of Uvalde.

In his speech, Robinson also said he will not “go down without swinging” in the fight against gun control.

He said the proponents wanted to “disarm” Americans and accused federal lawmakers who support gun control of wanting to leave “patriotic citizens of this nation unarmed and defenseless.”

“We will not go into this good night without standing up for our rights.”

Robinson is a board member of the NRA, and the NRA embraced his commitment to guns before his political career even really took off, with Robinson’s viral remarks at a Greensboro City Council meeting being included in an NRA commercial.

On 25 May Cooper posted a video calling for updated, stricter gun ownership laws.
