“It was immediately politicized and talking points brought up were, I should think, on the page that said for a week or two and focus on the people rather than being re-elected or elected, as some of the ones with this voice had tried to do it,” Pomeroy “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning.
He said he was upset to see democratic presidential candidate Beto O’rourke, as well as others, push gun control, according to the El Paso attack, in which 22 people were killed in a Wal-Mart by a gunman targeting Hispanics.

To go “and to speak mercy and grace and love these people, Oh, it went immediately to the talk of the inanimate object’, we have gun control”, and they went into a talk about guns in America rather than cure the local population of this area.”
He added: “We have to recognize the government for the people, and the people that you want to us to be important, not only for votes, but that we take care of you, that you grow up in a society where you don’t have to be living in fear. There is more in life than just existing. We should be able to, to have joy and fun.”
