House Speaker Philip Gunn took to Facebook last night to respond to the growing political and unrest following the deadly protests that took place in Virginia this weekend:

Gunn has been one of the most outspoken proponents of change when it comes to the Confederate battle emblem on the state flag of Mississippi. His comments came just hours before protestors in Durham, North Carolina pulled down a Confederate monument near a government building.

The deadly results of the weekend’s protests in Charlottesville, Virginia have brought renewed calls for Mississippi to remove the Confederate battle emblem from the state flag.
