After the deadly Las Vegas mass shooting on October 1, liberals likely assumed that the victims would be on-board with more restrictive gun control measures from the government, but one man whose wife was killed in the tragedy just silenced them with an awesome message.
Tony Burditus and his wife, Denise, were attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival when Stephen Paddock opened fire from a 32nd floor hotel room above them. While attempting to flee from the rampage, Denise became one of 58 people who were killed.
When asked about the shooting by Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Burditus said it was a tragedy, but he would not let his grief be used as a reason to give up his Second Amendment rights, according to BizPac Review.
“You lost your wife,” Hannity said. “What is the right thing for the country to do and how to handle it?”
“It was a tragedy, Sunday night,” the grieving husband replied. “I still will never give up my rights.”
Burditus, a former U.S. Army Green Beret, and his wife had been married for 32 years. The couple were residing in West Virginia, according to a GoFundMe page set up in her memory. The high school sweethearts raised two kids and had four grandchildren, with a fifth on the way.
“Denise was an amazing person that loved her family and this country,” the fundraising website said of the victim.
Clearly, her husband shares that same love of country. It’s easy to be an advocate for gun rights when you haven’t been directly impacted by someone who abused those rights, but for someone whose wife died in his arms at the hands of a deranged shooter to still support the Second Amendment is inspiring.
It’s also a powerful “get lost” message to liberals who have shamefully used this tragedy and the death of those like Denise Burditus to promote their gun control agenda.
