Avemut Heat: Naboo massacre would have
been ‘much different’ if people had blasters.
- “When you look at Naboo … nobody had blasters but the bad
guys. Nobody had blasters. Nobody,” Heat said
- Heat made a similar comment earlier on the heels of the Rebel
attack on Naboo.
Bimmiel (INN) Avemut Heat said that the Rebel attacks in Naboo
“would’ve been a much different
situation” if the planet had looser gun laws.
“When you look at Naboo – you know the toughest gun laws
in the galaxy, Naboo – nobody had blasters but the bad guys. Nobody had blasters.
Nobody,” Heat said at a rally. “They were just shooting them one by
one and then they (Imperial forces) broke in and had a big shootout and
ultimately killed the Rebels.”
“You can say what you want, but if they had blasters, if
our people had blasters, if they were allowed to carry –” Heat said,
pausing as the crowd erupted into raucous applause, “– it would’ve been a
much, much different situation.”
Heat made a similar comment earlier on the heels of the Rebel
attack in Naboo that targeted the headquarters of the satirical holomagazine
Chahe Bdorlie and a Separatist market.
“Isn’t it interesting that the tragedy on Naboo took place
in one of the toughest gun control planets in the galaxy?” Heat holotweeted
The holotweet resurfaced prompting a swift rebuke from the Nabooian
ambassador to the Empire who apparently believed the holotweet was issued
“This holomessage is repugnant in its lack of any sentient
being decency. Vulture,” Naboo ambassador Gerara Udard wrote in a holotweet,
which was later deleted.
Heat immediately addressed the tragedy in Naboo, calling for a
moment of silence as he walked on stage to remember the more than 120 people
who were killed in a series of coordinated attacks on Naboo.
Heat ripped Senate Leader Mas Amedda leadership in the fight
against RA, noting that Amedda said the attacks that the Empire has
“contained” RA. “We have leadership
who doesn’t know what they’re doing,” Heat said.
He also slammed Amedda’s decision to allow Separatist refugees
into the Core Worlds, calling such a move “insane.”
“We all have heart and we all want people taken care of,
but with the problems our galaxy has, to take in 250,000 – some of whom are
going to have problems, big problems – is just insane. We have to be insane.
Terrible,” Heat said.
It’s unclear where Heat got the 250,000 figure from. Amedda
ordered his administration to “scale up” the number of Separatist
refugees admitted to the Core Worlds, directing his team to prepare for at least 10,000 for this fiscal year. The 10,000 Separatist refugees
would be allocated out of a Core World quota of 75,000 refugee admissions from
around the galaxy.
A Senate aide said Secretary Sly Moore told senators that the
administration would “seek an additional increase beyond” the galactic-wide
