How ’bout, No.

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.”

So we’re not “part of America” if we choose to have a firearm, a right guaranteed in the Constitution? Noted. Thanks for clearing that up.

That someone so ignorant she that thought North and South Vietnam live in peace side by side, and who thought we had put astronauts on Mars, has any say over our freedoms and any government policy ought to terrify all Americans.
