On December 30th, Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX) tweeted a picture of gun oil with the words “liberal tears” taped across it and this caption: “The best gun lubricant around.”
Politico published the tweet and also announced that Stockman will “challenge incumbent Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) in the Texas Republican primary.”
As Breitbart News reported earlier this year, while many in the federal government were still lamenting the failure of Senator Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) gun control bill, Stockman was announcing that he would be giving away an AR-15 to a lucky supporter during the summer.
He has been unapologetically pro-Second Amendment throughout his tenure in office.
