"Arkansas Lawmaker Mocks Boston ‘Liberals,’ Says They Wish They Had Assault Rifles"
On Friday morning, Arkansas State Rep. Nate Bell (R) tweeted that “liberal” Boston residents likely wished for assault rifles and high-capacity magazines, as the manhunt for Boston Marathon bombing suspects continued.
His tweet said:
I wonder how many Boston liberals spent the night cowering in their homes wishing they had an AR-15 with a hi-capacity magazine? #2A

Bell has also backed legislation to make concealed carry licenses cheaper and to prevent the governor from regulating firearms even in state emergencies. In 2010 told Arkansas Carry, a state gun rights group, that he supports Stand Your Ground laws and tax exemptions for sales of gun and ammo manufactured in state.
Just wondering: Wouldn’t it be good right now if everyone in Boston had a gun? bit.ly/Z5DgjK
