 Republican U.S. Rep. Bob Good spared no words in blasting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government as “oppressive” like that of “Communist China.”

Good’s comments were made last week while he was debating the Federal Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2021 in the U.S. House of Representatives, an act brought forth by Democrats seeking to limit who can and cannot buy a gun.

Good said that the “Democrats simply do not believe in the inalienable rights of American citizens to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

“They believe that your rights come from government, and they, therefore, have the right to take them away,” he added.

Good then said that the “guarantee provided by our Founders to ensure we remain free from foreign invasion and, yes, as our Founders clearly warned us, from an oppressive government like we see in Canada, Australia, and the Democrats’ beloved Communist China is the constitutional right of law-abiding citizens to be armed as they choose.”
