Louisiana Rep. Clay Higgins, a former SWAT cop who's big on gun rights, threatened to shoot protesters in a wildly deranged Facebook post that accompanied a picture of armed Black men.

"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."

The accompanying picture, taken during a rally in Louisville to protest Breonna Taylor's killing earlier this year, shows three heavily armed Black men from the Not Fucking Around Coalition, an all-Black militia.
