Sen. Paul’s Wife: “I Sleep with a Loaded Gun”

Who could ever have imagined a political environment where a senator’s wife would be so fearful of the threats against her family that she needs to arm herself? And yet that’s exactly what’s taking place in America for many Republican lawmakers and cabinet members within the Trump administration.

Kelley Paul, the wife of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), described her increasing concerns for the safety of herself and her family amidst increasing calls from unhinged Democrats like Cory Booker, Maxine Waters, and Hillary Clinton, to “get up in the faces of congress people.”

Mrs. Paul spoke on Friday regarding her concern, while being interviewed by Breitbart News Deputy Political Director Amanda House. They discussed the increased threats her family has been receiving — along with her husband’s recent assault while mowing the lawn at home in Kentucky by a disgruntled neighbor, Rene Boucher, an Obama supporting registered Democrat.

Kelsey Cooper, a spokeswoman for Paul, said in a statement at the time:

“Senator Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault. The assailant was arrested and it is now a matter for the police. Senator Paul is fine.”

“Fine” however might have been an understatement, in that the Kentucky lawmaker suffered 5-broken ribs, including three displaced fractures, which could have lead to life-threatening injuries, not to mention the severe pain attributed to broken ribs and the trouble breathing.

However as bad as the assault was it pales in comparison to the continued threats leveled by radical leftists at the Paul family.

“We’ve updated all of our security systems at home. I sleep with a loaded gun by my bed. I’m home alone a lot, obviously when Rand is in Washington, DC, and so I’ve got deadbolts all around my house so that if someone’s in my house when I go to bed I’m dead-bolted in three different levels.” Mrs. Paul confided to House.

Mrs. Paul continued, “It’s bizarre. I’ve never been like this in my whole life. … We used to never even lock our doors, and now that has all changed. Even going out to dinner in D.C., last night, you worry. You hope that people aren’t going to come up and just start screaming at you.”

“Words do matter, and there are so many, quite frankly, unhinged [and] unstable people out there, and when they hear someone on their side telling them, ‘Get up in their face,’ they take that literally, and they think that gives them a license to be very aggressive, be harassing, throw people out of restaurants, and I don’t think anybody wants to live in a country like that.”

Perhaps to highlight her concern Mrs. Paul wrote an op-ed titled “My husband Rand Paul and our family have suffered intimidation and threats.” The article appeared in CNN, prefaced with a clause directed to Democratic Senator and 2020 hopeful Cory Booker who echoed fellow Democrat Maxine Waters to “GET UP IN THE FACE OF CONGRESS PEOPLE.”

That comment created a firestorm among GOP lawmakers, which was quickly walked-back by Booker’s communications director describing the incendiary statement as “an appeal for political activism that seeks common ground.”

Booker’s statement for confrontation was again repeated with a slightly different tone by Hillary Clinton on Tuesday saying; “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

Those words no doubt have consequences, especially if you’re a marauding band of thugs like Antifa, who hide behind the words of Booker or Clinton, and go out and assault individuals — as they did over the weekend assaulting a conservative group of gay Republicans at a street fair in San Francisco.

  1. The loony left is becoming violent.

  2. CNN actually published this? I find that hard to believe since they are 100% pro-leftist, anti-conservative and 90% fake.

  3. I seem to recall certain republicans calling for “2nd amendment solutions” for democrats. This type of language is always inflammatory but I can only think of two examples in the last 20 years where someone decided to actually be violent toward representatives – the first was the shooting of Giffords, the second was basically right around the corner from me (well, about a mile away, but pretty close) with the Alexandria baseball field shooting of Scalise. Both sides have members who engage in it, both sides are overwhelmingly made up of people who deplore and actively denounce violence.

    “The harassment escalated into a break-in while the family was home, vandalism and death threats seen by her young son. Even after she announced she wouldn’t seek re-election, despite running unopposed, a group of youths pounded on her windows and doors at night, forcing her and her husband, convalescing after heart surgery, to leave town.”

  5. The so called democrats are Stupid, Dumb & Ignorant. They are ANIMALS & cannot stand to lose.
