Sheila Jackson-Lee: “Don’t Condemn the Gangbangers. Blame the Guns.”

The NRA’s slogan has been, “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” Liberals have often mocked it, but they’ve never actually tried to argue that the guns carry the moral responsibility. Until now.

Sheila Jackson-Lee, the dumbest human being in Congress, can always be counted on to offer innovative ideas about the Vietnam War (North Vietnam and South Vietnam are living in peace) or her inability to tell the difference between Mars and the Moon. And this time around, Sheila Jackson-Lee put forward the bold theory that the gangbangers who are behind much of the gun violence murder rate shouldn’t be blamed.

Blame the guns.

While pushing for more gun control legislation on the House floor, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said, “Don’t condemn the gangbangers, they’ve got guns that are trafficked.”

Jackson Lee took the House floor on April 9 to argue in favor of increased gun control legislation, “Don’t condemn the gangbangers, they’ve got guns that are trafficked — that are not enforced, that are straw purchased and they come into places even that have strong gun laws.”

“Why? Because we don’t have sensible gun legislation.”

The anti-2nd amendment lobby likes to use words like “sensible” and “common sense” to describe its agenda, but its members lack all common sense and are about as sensible as drunken dachshunds.

Sheila Jackson-Lee shifts blame from the murderers to the weapons. Why, because the murderers vote for the Democratic Party and are a part of the community organizing machine.

The entire gun control push is a dishonest attempt to crack down on the rights and freedoms of Republican and Independent voters for the crimes of Democratic voters.
