Leading House Democrat Tells Americans: “Turn in Your Guns”

From my cold, dead hands.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee wants Americans to turn in their guns.
The Hill reported:

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.”

Dick’s Sporting Goods announced this week that it would stop selling and displaying guns at its store closest to Newtown, and would suspend the sale of modern sporting rifles nation-wide out of respect for the victims of the shooting.

“We are extremely saddened by the unspeakable tragedy that occurred last week in Newtown, CT, and our hearts go out to the victims and their families, and to the entire community,” the chain said in a statement on its website. “We continue to extend our deepest sympathies to those affected by this terrible tragedy.”

    Bite me bitch! It is BECAUSE of people like you we NEED to keep our rights and firearms.
    In my 56 years i cannot recall a more insecure time that I felt I needed to keep them.

    Sheila, dismiss all of your security. Turn in their guns.

    Sheila, baby, consider it done.

    This from the mouth of a “brilliant” dem bulb. The question should be about “mental health” and lack of it in this country. Since the ACLU attacked the “rights” of the mentally deficient and their “rights”, this has been the response. I remember the Sylvia Seagrist attack at the
    Springfield Mall in the early 80’s. We can no longer “force” individuals with mental issues into an evaluation and this is what we get. Lochner, Holmes and this gentleman Lanza (along with our imported shooter at the VA University 33 dead). Let’s not do the rational thing and put the safety of the public ahead of the mentally deficient, no let’s ban guns. It amazes me how people do not think rationally, but instead “blame it on guns” not the PEOPLE doing the shooting. There is truly no hope for America.

    You have got to love the rich elite hiding behind armed security officers, secret service agents, gated neighborhoods protected by alarms and roving guards telling everyone else to just suck it up and put down the guns. New American greeting: “…howdy, SI SI PUEDE…Oh, Yes we can…don’t shoot.!!”

    Well, the reason we need the guns is for protection against the threats enabled and created by the likes of Shelia Jackson Lee, Fearless Leader, and -frankly- Trayvon Martin.

    Every time there is a shooting wherein the perp is not killed by police almost immediately, and a crazy person is caugth wandering loose, every government official from the Chief of Police, to mayor, to president should be removed from office as a result.

    First, please remember that members of Congress are not required to live by the same laws as we do. They are in a special, almost elevated class. The ObamaCare vote to exempt members of Congress from the law proved–at least to me–all of them need to be ousted and a new set of representatives of the people installed in their place.

    Second, I do believe she—or whomever wrote the piece–is misinterpreting what Dick’s is saying with the implication that they will stop the sales of their sporting rifles nationwide. What the press release says is that they will stop the sale of these items during this period of national morning and that is quite different.

    Thanks Sheila, your plea just caused a spike in gun sales. Keep it up. Between you, your liberal friends in the media and Barack Obama, it’s going to be a stellar year for arms manufacturers.

    Folks, better get your orders in before supplies run out. Never felt like I needed weapons for anything besides hunting or personal protection from criminals. But this administration is a wake up call that we might need weapons to protect us from our own government that is trying to take our constitutional rights away. And it’s not just the 2nd amendment – they’re working on the 1st too.

    Looks like she’s already been hit by two .45’s in the nostrils.

    EVERY gun restriction bill should have this rider: No elected official may have or use armed bodyguards or law enforcement officials for their protection.

    That will never get passed, as they’re so much better than us. But at least we can make them vote on it to show their true colors.

    Phukewe Sheila baby! I’m a non-gun owning, card carrying member of the NRA. I will fight for the right of my neighbors to own guns that will protect me and my family from the POSs that vote for you!

  • Objective Analysis

    This spoken from a representative who resides in TX where majority of people know someone (young and old) who possesses a firearm whether legally or in the black market.

    Brainwashing of these progressives is alarming. Reid to her is just unbelievable and they think they are intelligent.

  • Tom Doniphon

    This is about as ridiculous as Mittens saying that illegals would “self deport”! What a pile!

  • democraps suck

    You will have to pry them out of dying hands you stupid beeotch…there have been more mass killings under ozero…figure it out…people are worse off and freaking out under the mooslime POS

  • Adirondack Patriot

    Yeah. You’ll get the same answer that King George III got, sweetheart.

    Kiss my ass.

    “Mittens saying that illegals would “self deport”! ” – actually, self-deportation would work if the incentives were removed – free education; citizenship for the babies born here; free social services; free hospitalization; social security benefits; jobs when you have no legal papers, and the plethora of other freebies that most U.S. citizens can’t even get.

  • hermie

    Why don’t you just go demand that the gangbangers and drug lords give up their guns. Like the ones sold to them by Obama.

    Oh, you don’t want to bring that up do you? Especially since the MSM has tried so hard to cover it up.

  • Chris in N.Va.

    In a battle of wits she’d be totally unarmed and defenseless, considering she “turned in” her brains and ethics decades ago to secure a forever-sweet spot in the Democrat Plantation.

    She’s been faithfully subservient ever since, unlike all of those more “independent” and “uppity” folk who deign to assume that they can think and act for themselves.

    She’s earned her spot in the Democrat Plantation House porch.

    Molon Labe. Try it moron.

    I imagine the same request was made in Nazi Germany.
