A Facebook post by a Pennsylvania School Board member and doctor is creating controversy among gun rights activists and protesters against the lockdowns.
Dr. Jennifer Rager-Kay threatened to shoot anyone coming within 6 feet of her and not wearing a mask, in a Facebook post.
“As a concerned carry-permitted gun owner, if you refuse to wear a mask and try to come within 6 feet of me or my family, I will exercise the same constitutional rights to shoot you.”
She penned this in response to the anti-lockdown protesters that are refusing to wear masks in public.
It was posted on a private Facebook page but it was then shared and became public. She has now started the process of walking it back and apologizing to anyone who was 'offended'.
“I would like to publicly apologize to anyone offended by my recent post regarding the hypocrisy of those who refuse to wear face masks yet walk around openly carrying guns.
Many of us have put things on a public social forum that we'd like to later take back. This, however, coming from a doctor and School Board member seems a bit more concerning.
Is she talking about kids at school? Is she talking about the parents of the kids at school? Is this someone you want on your local School Board?
She doesn't sound very rational for a position like a doctor or School Board member. Her apology seems to a half-apology of sorts as well.
I am sorry if my words were offensive or derogatory in any way. My concern and compassion for human life got the best of me.”
I must have misunderstood what 'compassion for human life' actually meant.
