House Dem: 'Turn in your guns' ( Sheila Jackson Lee)
The Hill ^ | 12-19-12 | Pete Kasperowicz

Posted on 12/19/2012 2:47:25 PM PST by Mozilla

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."

I think Dick’s is making a BIG mistake.

Not only the loss in sales, but permanently estranging themselves from FORMER customers like me.

She should go walking through gang infested neighborhoods, telling the people there to turn in their guns. If they turn in all of their guns, I might consider getting rid of mine.

Sheila Jackson Lee represents "a gang-infested neighborhood".

And, while she might insist that the folks outside her district (i.e., whites) turn in their guns, she won't lift a finger to make the bros in her district turn in their's.

With people Like Diane Feinstein and Obama aiming to ban “assault weapons” who knows where they draw the line. I would say it could go all the way to banning all guns.

Sorry Sheila, I gave my guns to the Apollo astronauts to protect themselves on Mars when they landed there, and they didn’t have enough fuel to bring them back.

Speaking of guns in the hands of children, Todavia Cleckley and Marcus Valesquez, teens on the run after murdering a West Pennsylvania woman, Kayle Peterson (22) were ARRESTED in a Beaver Falls home on Tuesday. (teens harassing man for cigarette. the 22 year-old woman told them to get a job)

In a quick google search, I could only find one article about the arrest.

As well as the security guards in the WH, Capitol, and all personal secret service for these gubmint clowns, including the precious first daughters. If or kids in public schools don’t deserve armed protection, why should they?

I am old, not in good physical shape, and unable, with medical conditions to fight off most any attacker, man or woman, who may choose to attack me because the need drug money, or because they are on bath salts or something else.

If you take away my gun, Rep. Lee, who will be responsible to defend me when I cannot defend myself. I would not win in a machete fight, as all the dead in Rwanda have shown, I would not win in a knife fight, as those children in China have shown, I would not win in a fist fight, since I am unlikely to land a single blow.

Will You, Ms. Lee, be responsible for me? Will you be there to see that I am not a victim?

Or will you be, like the police, the historian of my death, who makes an announcement to the few people who would care (due to my lack of fame)?

Why must we be reduced to the lowest common denominator for victim status?

Why can we not be all elevated to equality of force with the evil that confronts us?

My .45 will do just that, arthritis and all, overweight girth, and slow pace, notwithstanding.

The only reason you fear guns, Ms. Lee, is because it is the one tool that allows me my primary civil right of self-defense. You only wish to help me to control me, and for no other reason.

Ms. Lee, you may promptly go to hell.

Sounds like an Atlas Shrugged move. If the government can’t legally take it, they convince people to “voluntarily” give it to them.

Look Sheila....I and my guns had a heart to heart talk last night...

I made them promise never to leave the house on their own and go kill innocent people...No bad guns or misbehavior in my house...

In return I will keep them clean and take them to the range next Saturday...

“I think Dick’s is making a BIG mistake.”

Just a guess here, but I wonder if the shooter’s mother bought her guns at Dick’s. There is one in the Danbury Mall which is about 10 minutes from Newtown. I live about 25 miles from there. Maybe Dick’s knows this and wants to get out in front of the story.

Demokrats always give their opinions when it comes to gun control while, at the same time, the PUBS remain silent on this subject.

That’s why I no longer support the GOP. What a bunch of useless eunuchs.
