This Texas candidate’s one-minute take on gun violence is a master class for Democrats

361

Kim Olson, a Democratic congressional candidate in Texas’ 24th District, is making big waves in the Lone Star State. The retired Air Force colonel spent 28 years in the armed forces, commanding troops here at home and in combat areas such as Iraq.

She’s tough, and she isn’t afraid to speak her mind. As someone who’s actually served in a combat zone, she’s seen weapons of war up close, and she didn’t hold back at a recent event when the subject of firearms came up, telling the audience in the strongest of terms why we need to act now. “Let me just say this, and I’m unapologetic, weapons of war do not belong in the streets of America. Period.”

In fact, she gave a master class in how Democrats nationwide should be talking about gun safety. Take a listen:

If you think Olson sounds tough, she is. Learn more about her in her campaign’s intro video, or get involved with her campaign here.

U-Rah!!! There’s a woman with more balls than the entire Republican side of the Senate combined. Makes me wish I were Texan, I’d be on her election team so fast it’d give folks whiplash!

That’s what it looks like to be someone who gets’s the job done. Get’r done Kim we need you.
