House Dem: 'Turn in your guns'
thehill.com ^ | 12/19/12 | Pete Kasperowicz

Posted on 12/19/2012 10:43:43 AM PST by ColdOne

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) on Wednesday afternoon urged people to turn in their guns, arguing it would be an appropriate response to last week's mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.

"I would personally just say to those who are listening, maybe you want to turn in your guns," Jackson Lee said on the House floor. "Oh no, I'm not going to take your guns. But look at what Dick's Sporting Goods did … they wanted to be part of the solution and part of America."

Why do articles always take the part of the sentence and not the whole thing. I was expecting her to say what the article says but that is not exactly what she says. She says MAYBE you should turn in your guns. Lately even conservative news has been stretching the truth. I don’t know what is going on with the lying.

Hey Sheila, I assume your armed security detail will no longer be necessary..Hey I’m not saying you can’t use that fellow anymore but he won’t be allowed to carry a gun, a spoon yes, but a gun, no

At the exact moment that our president is a revolutionary marxist, raised by card carrying members of the communist party, and our nation is being flooded by Mexicans, Salvadorans, and every type of Moslem available anywhere on earth (africans, pakistanis, iraqis, egyptians, afghans, somalis etc),,
you think im ACTUALLY going to turn in a gun? I won’t even do so if you pass a law.

While Jackson Lee said she would not take guns away from people, she noted that she is the sponsor of legislation, H.R. 227. That bill would raise the eligibility to carry a handgun from 18 to 21, and ban people under 21 from possessing semiautomatic assault weapons.

You fscking moron! The legal age to purchase and carry a handgun is already 21!!!!!

As we used to say in Iraq “please log your request on the EAFD Form 101.”

Not turning in my car because people are killed by drunk drivers. Nor my kitchen knives because people are stabbed.

Sheila Jackson-Lee is one of the dumbest people on this planet. The fact that this self-important foghorn is voting on legislation that affects the lives of sane people is symptomatic of the decay of this nation.

Cindy. Trust me, I don’t want to be a part of YOUR America. Or Obama’s.

I want to be a part of the America that was written in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the sacrifice of Men who made this country great.

You can keep your vision of America.

House Dem: 'Turn in your guns'

What a coincidence. That's the same thing Hitler and Stalin said.
We all know how that turned out. (I think it's obvious why the socialists and communists on the left want us disarmed)

Shelia, you need to go back to where the demwits drugged you out of. Seriously, you are no friend to America’s law and order system. Dick’s Sporting Goods made a stupid decision so now you use that poor decision of theirs to advance gun control. And we all see how democratic polices pushed on the citizens are working out terribly. Be quiet!

This democrat is a typical democrat

The individual is small compared to the gigantic, all powerful government but these democrat/liberal morons want to take away more of our individual rights like gun ownership. Democrats including the media want to empower government even more. They can't stand the fact that we can own anything even guns.

No you democrat monsters , and government idiots are not superior to me and cannot tell me what to do. So to all you democrats/liberals go jump in the lake ( i wish I didn't even know you idiots existed )

democrats are all statist/socialist monsters including this Obama creep

Maybe Sheila should tell her Black constituents to disarm first. I’m sure they would be happy to rely on the government for their protection. That has worked so well in the past.

Did she ask all criminals, robbers, theifs and murderers to turn in the guns they bought out of the trunk of a car? Of course not. She and all liberals deliberately want criminals to keep their guns while they take guns from honest, law-abiding people.

If ANYONE wants to turn in their guns, Please turn them into me. Especially the MEAN SCARY Black long ones with removable magazines and collapsing stocks. Any handguns, I’m willing to accept those too. At least they’ll be “off your street.”

Let’s let Obama and Biden declare all guns and ammo banned in Chicago as a test case for their new gun legislation. We could see how it works in the most dangerous place in the country, before letting them take away the Second Amendment rights that were enumerated by the Founders.

In Chicago, there have been 446 school age children shot in leftist utopia run by Rahm Emanuel and that produced Obama, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, etc. 62 school aged children have actually been killed by crazed nuts in Chicago so far this year with almost two weeks to go.

Yes, I heartily agree. All those that voted for this moron and the kenyan should turn in their guns. That would make CWII easier.
Truth is, this appeal will motivate the stupid liberal gun owners to turn in their guns. I hope more Dim pols do the same.

Great idea Sheila! In fact why don't you start by going into the gang infested parts of DC (without any security detail) and start politely asking the gang bangers to give you all their guns. Get back to me on how that works out for you...

You know, Sheila may have a good idea here since the only people that will listen to anything she has to say are leftist gun owners! If they all respond to her message our environment will be less target rich when the revolution starts. :)
