Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), who was asked one of the more pointed questions about this issue at a recent forum on preventing gun violence by Celia Bigelow...

“Why aren’t you pro-choice when it comes to self-defense for women?” she asks.

His response: “On to the next question. I’m choosing to move to the next question.”

One report noted that Ms. Bigelow was then forcibly removed from the meeting but I cannot find more to substantiate this.

VCDL would have been all over it if she was forcibly removed.

That whole 'discussion' was a joke.

They know if they answered the question that their actual agenda would be exposed. Therefore it is better, for them, to provide no answer at all.

I truly do not recognize my country anymore.:(

His name is more appropriately spelled Moron.

we the voter are important...we are intelligent cause we know who to vote for

but than we are treated like precocious children if we ask a question they deem 'inappropriate'
we are ignored.

ATBack, i also do not recognize the country of my youth.

Too bad when he decided to "move to the next question" she didn't reply, "I think we should move to the next candidate for your position!"

Getting a bit back to the original post, our "esteemed" Jim Moran is a twelve-term "progressive Democrat", his brother is head of the Virginia Democratic Party (not picking on parties - just pointing out that he is a loyal part of a party machine, with little to no creative thought of his own).

He is an embarrassment to VA. His son got outed in some remarks suggesting how to commit voter fraud (and a lot more that could be said about father and son, and treatment of women).

This recent "town hall" was his first in two years. That's right, he has not felt it necessary to entertain a conversation with us lowly folks in over two years. On this particular town hall - on gun violence - his brushing off of a question he did not like was actually pretty mild by his standards. He's well known for his condescension and derision of any one - any constituent - who disagrees with him.

Aside from the local issues with Rep. Moron ... ahem Moran ... this is simply an example of a coordinated national assault to take on the "gun control issue" - they are pushing this to the extreme, and will spare no efforts to ram something through, somehow.

Considering the makeup of his district (Alexandria and Arlington, Va.), Moran felt perfectly safe in brushing off a pro-gun supporter. In fact the whole purpose of his conducting this forum was to score points with the antigunners, who vastly predominate in the district. (As if he needed to campaign -- he's basically a congressman-for-life.)

And it was a huge pro gun turnout. He probably soiled himself xD

What a brilliant way to package the question of gun rights -- there's some real potential there to embarass politicians who support a woman's right to choose lots of things, just not whether or not to be a victim . . .

Vote him out if you can. Many simply want to control the population because they think that they know better.

Some old career politician who wants to tell women what they need or don't need for self protection. He makes the rules. Because he can't allow a woman to make her own choice...
