INDIANAPOLIS (WEHT) – The Indiana Democratic Party has released a statement criticizing state Rep. Jim Lucas over a video that appeared to show him flashing a gun to a group of high school students during a gun rights discussion.

In the video, first posted by The Statehouse File, Lucas, a Republican from Seymour, shows a holstered gun to the students in response to a question about the right to carry a firearm.

In discussing places where firearms are banned, Lucas said people aren’t “truly free” unless they can defend themselves.

A student off-camera asked Lucas if was referring to carrying a firearm. Just over six minutes into the 10-minute video, Lucas said, “I’m carrying right now,” and held open his suit jacket exposing a holstered handgun.

A student then remarked that “nothing about someone carrying a gun makes me feel safe.”

Lucas responded by saying, “Those are feelings. I’m talking facts.”

I am sure if he had on make-up and showed his willy, the Indiana Democratic Party would have cheered loudly.

  1. are we assuming he was at a school? then expect him to be arrested and charged with a felony…. when ever We the People “compromise” we lose Freedom.

    1. Agree totally.
      Feelings are just that.
      I get the “I’m offended” crap too often, so my immediate response is “no one cares about your emotional state.”
      Glad to see someone in the legislature has the same attitude. Feelings are all well and good, but never base sweeping public policy on them.

  2. A bit of a lapse in judgment on his part, but it did illustrate the points that concealed means concealed, and they have no idea who around them may be armed.
    Don’t worry, though, by the time they’re done hyperventilating and exaggerating their feelings of scared, he’ll have pulled a Ma Deuce out of his coat and fired it at them.

    1. the snowflakes have been programmed to fear the guy with the firearm…. some, not very many, can be retrained to not react like that…
      sweeping public policy has been based on “feelings” for a long time…

  3. I wonder if that little punk feels safe around a cop in uniform?
    It is always amazing how someone can go from “I’m fine, nothing to worry about.” to “I’m terrified.” in a second. All because someone showed them something. (See the Brit TV clip for instance.) How long was Rep. Lucas there before they knew he had a gun? Why are the suddenly scared of him?
    Nothing but an attempt to intimidate, gain power, and control the narrative.

  4. So, dear touchy-feelie student, I am a good guy. If a bad guy blasts through the door with a gun in his hand and starts shooting people at random, of which you may be one, would you prefer I be armed or not?

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
