Senators 'have concerns' over Trump DoD pick who called US gun laws 'insane'

 Dean Winslow
 A full bird before.  Big problem.

“I’d also like to, and I may get in trouble with other members of the committee, just say how insane it is that in the United States of America a civilian can go out and buy a semi-automatic assault rifle like an AR-15, which apparently was the weapon that was used,” Winslow said.

The nomination of Dean Winslow, President Trump’s pick to head the military health system, may be in jeopardy as the Senate Armed Services Committee continues a hold over his criticism of U.S. gun laws as “insane” and his advocacy of “therapeutic abortion services.”

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the committee chairman, said Thursday that members have not been convinced to lift their hold after Winslow, who is also a close friend of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, tried to explain his comments during a November confirmation hearing.

“He sent a correction letter to try to clear up comments that he made and there’s still members of the committee that have concerns,” McCain told the Washington Examiner.
