Democrats and their corporate media allies have consistently blamed conservatives for the Covenant School shooting in Nashville on Monday.
They want to detract from the fact the shooting was carried out by a mentally ill transgender terrorist so they can push gun confiscation.
Former Illinois RINO congressman Adam Kinzinger decided to get in on the smears against conservatives and act as the left’s useful idiot again. He noticed a tweet from a liberal podcaster named Brian Tyler Cohen implying Rep. George Santos (R-NY) and Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) contributed to the Nashville shooting because they were wearing AR-15 pins. (h/t Twitchy)
Kinzinger got mad and responded: “the flaunting of guns and the gun fetish really bother me.”
You can oppose a ban, fine. But the flaunting of guns and the gun fetish really bothers me. https://t.co/raw1oXdtTB

But an anonymous Twitter user dug up an old photo of Kinzinger that would make Ted Nugent beam with pride. In the picture, Kinzinger is literally holding a so-called “assault weapon” with one of his friends (Kinzinger is on the left).
Is this you? I’m actually not being sarcastic…

Lest one think the image is photoshopped, Kinzinger still has the tweet posted.

The tweet was not just a mere photo-op by Kinzinger to impress his conservative constituents. Kinzinger used to be a true champion of the 2nd Amendment, having once earned an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association.
Then he reversed course and called the NRA a “grifting scam” right before leaving Congress.
Kinzinger acknowledged that he was in the photo. But Kinzinger became defensive and called the anonymous Twitter user a “clown” for pointing out his flip-flop.
The former congressman also flaunted his military service in an attempt to show superiority.
Yes that is me. That also was many years ago and I have since moderated somewhat on this issue, as have millions of Americans. BUT if you don’t want to leave room for people to evolve on this issue, then you only have yourself to blame. I also am a military member

Conservative Twitter users were less than impressed with Kinzinger’s lame about-face on guns and his childish behavior.
How have you evolved on the issue, Adam?

Oh…so since you “moderated”, we must be like you and “moderate”? You look like a MAGA there ‘lil fella.

Have your views also changed on James Vasquez or are you still sticking by him? pic.twitter.com/5OV3dj8ErL

The most likely reason Kinzinger sold out had to with him receiving a job at far-left CNN. The only Republicans welcome there are RINOS.
You haven’t evolved, you’ve sold out. For money & fame. You’re disgusting.

He “evolved,” right around the same time CNN starting paying the bills. What a coincidence! https://t.co/PKfSlOxi6A

But perhaps there is an additional reason for Kinzinger’s recent embrace of gun control. He somehow forgot how to properly possess a firearm.
Maybe advocating for gun control is his way of trying to save him from harming others and himself.
All of his anti-gun rhetoric makes total sense now. Enhance! pic.twitter.com/NfF1K6J7kG

America is certainly safer without Kinzinger in Congress and operating firearms.
