Jackson Lee’s AR-15 Ignorance is More Democrat Political Malpractice

Gungrabby Gabby Giffords and her handlers know they can rely on the stunning incompetence of Sheila Jackson Lee and her useful idiot constituents to help them out with any citizen disarmament edict they need to be pushed. (Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee / Facebook photo)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “I've held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I hadn’t,” Texas Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee claims to an approving media while trying to get House members to “flood” the Senate and demand new citizen disarmament edicts. “It is as heavy as 10 boxes that you might be moving and the bullet that is utilized, a .50 caliber, these kinds of bullets, need to be licensed and do not need to be on the street.”

Coming in at just over six-and-a-half pounds with a full magazine of .223 rounds, one wonders if those are boxes of chocolate Lee is referring to. Her similarities to “Forrest Gump” don’t end there, as you never know what you’re going to get every time she opens her mouth. To paraphrase a quote from another popular movie, “Tropic Thunder,” she went full Jackson Lee.  Everybody knows you don’t go full Jackson Lee.

Not that anything stops her from doing just that, and repeatedly. As long as we’re mentioning movies, we can’t forget “Idiocracy,” and note we’re talking about a lawmaker who has treated us to such gems as:

  • The Constitution is 400 years old.
  • Astronaut Neil Armstrong planted the flag on Mars.
  • There are still two Vietnams.
  • Klansmen are now the Tea Party.

There’s more, but you get the picture. To her credit, at least Jackson Lee hasn’t publicly speculated about Guam tipping over.

But since Jackson Lee has now turned her vast subject matter expertise to guns, it would be remiss not to recall she’s not the only ignoramus politician. It wasn’t all that long ago we saw New York Democrat Rep. Carolyn McCarthy challenged by Tucker Carlson of Fox News to explain what a “barrel shroud” was, as that was a  feature her so-called “assault weapon” bill would ban. After much deflection and trying to avoid answering the question, she was finally cornered into admitting she had no idea:

“I believe it’s the shoulder thing that goes up.”

And then we had New York Democrat Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington, who had this to say about the .50 caliber rounds Jackson Lee “thinks” you load AR-15s with:

“But some of these bullets as you saw have an incendiary device on the tip of it, which is a heat-seeking device, so you don’t shoot deer with a bullet that size. If you do, you could cook it at the same time.”

This was at a press conference, yet not one member of the media called BS and exposed Eddington for the know-nothing that she was. That’s because they don’t know themselves and aren’t held to account for getting it right on guns. Face it, gun bans are what they and their employers are all rooting for. Besides, it’s not like the audiences/readership are informed enough to call them on it. If they were, they’d be getting very different poll results when they ask about support for background checks, red flags, and bans. They can’t allow that.

And thus we have an “informed” Twitter poster who goes by the handle TexasMomsforBeto! (which ought to tell you something in itself), who has no doubt formed her “deep” convictions based on what she’s “learned” from politicians, gun-grab groups and media cheerleaders:

“Here is the thing… I don't think you could even eat the meat of an animal killed with a semi automatic weapon. It would be so full of shrapnel.”

Yeah, but at least it would be cooked!

“Oh god poor animal,” an equally informed sympathizer agrees.

It’s bad enough that these people cast votes that cancel out ours, allowing politicians like Jackson Lee and their string-pullers to advance more edicts. That they do is nothing short of citizenship malpractice.

Worse is the political malpractice committed by arrogant, oath-breaking officeholders. Whether they’re genuine mental defectives, deliberate subversives or both, they’re enabled and empowered by useful idiot constituents.

And the interests of those who would rule (and the media they control) are to keep ‘em dumb…

    Gotta love ol’ Sheila. She is as dumb as a sack of hammers. During TS Harvey when it got to Houston she pronounced to national media that all of Houston was below sea level. Dumb as she is, the people that keep electing her are really something. The train stops there and they all get off.

    The ones I really like on these two idiots are: Lee while on a tour of the NASA Space center in Houston stood looking at a large picture of Mars and asked the tour guide if they would show her where the Astronauts landed when they “first landed there”. It probably put the guide in a bind to have to point out the Astronauts went to the moon not MARS. But remember stupid people elect stupid people. and: Giffords was questioning a General in a congressional hearing about the war in the desert and asked if our military was conducting… Read more »

    The title of the article should leave out the “AR-15” and just say Jackson Lee’s ignorance. I realize David is trying to make a point about the ignorance of the democrats that are trying to govern something they know nothing about but this one, and many more like her, are just plain stupid and flaunt the fact that they make more money than they would ever dream of in the private world. Unfortunately, Texas has their ignorants in congress just like most states do and we want the government to perform with logic?

    Stupidity doesn’t matter. Facts don’t matter. The truth doesn’t matter. Sound bites matter. Tone of voice matters. Repetition of lies matter. Willing sheep followers who vote matter. Demagoguery matters. This is why the founders eschewed Democracy in favor of a Republic. Unfortunately, they didn’t mandate term limits because they did not foresee career politicians who would be as stupid as the emotional, easily-duped public they feared in a Democracy.

    “Queen Sheila” goes to great lengths to prove her ignorance–and the low intelligence and low ambition of her constituents. Indeed, it’s difficult to not hold a very low opinion of the voters who live in her district. I can almost feel sorry of the other Democrats who have to work with her. Almost, that is. A couple of her performances come to mind–that are an embarrassment to the people of Houston, and should be to her constituents (but they don’t care as long as the freebees keep coming.) * A couple years ago, she introduce a bill that would raise… Read more »

Some point to the 1890s when the S. Ct and O.W.Holmes, jr. began changing the definition of Constitutional “Right”. There is plenty of elitist history to analyze.

The little girl was collateral damage because he was too careless to check his backstops before firing. Same thing with Giffords. I hate to admit it, but it DOES seem Giffords has done a masterful job of monetising her stroke of chance injury. She didn’t have much to make her stand out from the rest before that. Now she can, and does, play the “VICTIM” card, and does so masterfully.… Read more »

    The absolutely insane levels of stupidity exhibited by Demorat politicians and their supporters makes a very strong argument for bringing back poll taxes and voter questionnaires. A $20 fee annually along with a MANDATORY 20-question quiz on Constitutional knowledge that would rotate different questions every election.

    Term limits are already enshrined in our Constitution. They are called elections and are held on a regular basis.
