GOP Congressman Threatens to Shoot Armed Protesters in Unhinged Facebook Post - 2020-09-02
"Look, fair warning. If this shows up, we'll consider the armed presence a real threat. We being, We, the people of Louisiana," Higgins' post began. The Republican congressman, elected in 2016, went on to say, "I wouldn't even spill my beer. I'd drop any 10 of you where you stand. Because some of we, like me…We, are SWAT. Nothing personal. We just eliminate the threat."
