Makes sense. Rep Gohmert (R-Tarded)* has decided that the easiest way to keep high capacity semi automatic firearms out of the hands of crazy people is to arm more crazy people. Like the ones in Congress. Good idea. It is clear that DC suffers from an appalling lack of firearms. Even the NRA agrees that the clinically insane should be limited to single shot 22's and derringers. So Reps Shuler and Gohmert are going to make us feel more secure because they have the ability to trade rounds with their constituents at the next town hall meeting. I don't care how many pistols you're packing or how many Dirty Harry fantasies you got tucked in your cranium from reading multiple copies of the Armed Citizen, chances are you're going to be hugging the ground with the rest of us. The only ones standing may be a small percentage of cops, combat infantry veterans and Columbia Heights gangbangers and 2/3'rds of those aren't going to open up on a crowd of people anyway. Sweet Jesus, the one armed citizen who was there in Tuscon admitted he came close to shooting the wrong guy and how about Rep Franks (R-stupid)? - "I wish there had been one more gun there that day in the hands of a responsible person, that's all I have to say," How about saying something that addresses the problem of crazy people with guns, you dumb motherfucker, instead of being an NRA parrot? That's bullshit and the NRA is bullshit. That's why I quit it - the redneck politics were bad enough but the sheer stupidity babbling from the mouths of duly elected NRA hand puppets is too much to bear. Why is the dialog about hate speech instead of keeping assault weapons out of the hands of crazies?
