Wurzelbacher recently blogged about the Santa Barbara shooting saying in-part, “As harsh as this sounds — your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights.”

Lafferty responded in her op-ed, writing, “It’s actually refreshing to see his [Wurzelbacher’s] comments so unvarnished, so closely removed from this poor kid’s murder. And I wouldn’t have dignified his disgusting comments with a response if it didn’t follow such a disturbing pattern among gun extremists in this country.”
