Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) recommended “liberal tears” as the best lubricant for cleaning guns in his most recent post on Twitter.
Stockman, who is running in the Republican primary against Sen. John Cornyn, tweeted a picture Monday of a spray can marked “liberal tears” and a gun. In the caption below the picture, he wrote that liberal tears worked as the best gun lubricant.
Stockman has been trying to win over Texans by supporting gun rights, and by being more aggressive about them than Cornyn. While Cornyn was endorsed by the National Rifle Association earlier in December, Stockman was endorsed by the Gun Owners of America, a group considered to be more assertive than the NRA.
“The right to keep and bear arms is granted by God,” Stockman wrote in a statement against the Arms Trade Treaty.
In May, the outspoken gun proponent even gave away a Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle via his Twitter.
“Grab this gun before Obama does,” the tweet read.
