Skip to comments.House Dem: 'Turn in your guns' ( Sheila Jackson Lee)
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."

Just as soon as you turn in your armed guards, Sheila.
I think Dick’s is making a BIG mistake.
Not only the loss in sales, but permanently estranging themselves from FORMER customers like me.
Come and get them.
Y’all first, Buckwheat & Co!
I’ll turn in my firearm if you prove you have a brain cell, you effing toad.
No need to shop there. I am boycotting the place. Although I hardly went there. But never planning to.
I would like to appeal to all US Congressman and Senators to give up their pensions and benefits! (What one will happen first?
Come and get em piggy.
How ‘bout ya’ll turn in yo brain, ya gots peanuts all up in dere!
Guns prevent rape too..
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.
They trying to pass something like Nazi Germany’s 1938 Weapons Act?
Dick’s lost my business by caving.
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.
Okay, I will AFTER I die, or until Barry is out of the White Hut.
Buy More GUNS!!!
Disclaimer - I am assuming she has a brain.
Does dat include de black folk too, Shelia?
Be assured that rape is a crime Ms. Lee has never feared.
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.
Yes, by all means, turn them in. I will have collection points set up in all major cities and I assure you, the guns you turn in will find a good home ...
Who are the people that vote her in? There’s the real idiocy.
Yo Sheila! Why don’t you come get them, ho?!
I live in Houston Sheila, come on by and get them.
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.
I will at the right time...barrel first....
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 hate when the eternal victim mentality meets self-righteousness.
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.
Her looks will protect her on that one.
Sounds like an Atlas Shrugged move. If the government can’t legally take it, they convince people to “voluntarily” give it to them.
Sheila Jackson Lee is the poster beast, can’t really use “child” here, of why stupid people should not be allowed to vote.
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...
When I read what Dick’s Sporting Goods change in policy, I already decided I will never go back to that store to purchase anything again.
Never been, now I never will.
Cheaperthandirt stopped selling firearms online too...I think they started back up today but screw them for caving in the first place. I will never buy from either company.
Does this mean she is now a cornball sister?
“I think Dicks 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.
You first, Sheila. Lead by example instead of just using your (stupid) words!
THERE ARE 75 SOCIALISTS IN CONGRESS WITH TIES TO THE COMMUNIST PARTY USA
William Lacy Clay,
Keith Ellison (co-chair),
Raúl Grijalva (co-chair),
Jesse Jackson Jr.,
Eddie Bernice Johnson,
Hank Johnson (whip),
Ben Ray Lujan,
Eleanor Holmes Norton,
Bernie Sanders (CPCs lone Senator),
Frederica Wilson, and
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.
Bite your tongue, honky! ;)
