The Swamp Drains Itself

Buh Bye lib, don't let the door hit you in the ass.

Pentagon nominee withdraws, stands by comments about 'insane' gun laws

Dean Winslow has withdrawn as President Trump’s pick to head the military healthcare system, but he is not backing away from a comment about “insane” U.S. gun laws that derailed his nomination in the Senate.

The Senate Armed Services Committee put Winslow’s nomination on indefinite hold following a November confirmation hearing where the retired Air Force flight surgeon and Stanford University medical professor criticized public access to firearms in the wake of the Texas church shooting.

Winslow, who is a close friend of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, announced his withdrawal in an op-ed Wednesday in the Washington Post. He said he had “blurted out what was in my heart,” has no regrets and remains opposed to the availability of what he called assault weapons.

“With a standard 30-round magazine, assault rifles are perfect for mass murder,” Winslow wrote. “Assault weapons in the United States are not being used to kill ‘bad guys’ in self-defense or to provide for a ‘well-regulated militia’ but for entertainment, mass murder and domestic terrorism. Is this really the intent of the Second Amendment?” he asked.
