Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) gave an interview on the steps of the Capital building and showed everybody the depth of her ignorance about guns.
In the video below, you can watch her interaction with the reporters.
She said, “I believe there will have to be an emergence of members of the House flooding the United States Senate for Senator McConnell to understand that these initiatives today, my gun storage bill, my bill that I’ve introduced dealing with the caliber weapon, I’ve held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I had it,” she continued.
She held out her hands as if she was holding the gun being discussed.


So far, she sounds reasonable, right?
But we’re heading off the rails, fast.
“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,” Jackson Lee stated.

Whaaaat? Ten moving boxes?
Unloaded, an AR-15 weighs about 6.5 pounds!
Does she mean flat, empty moving boxes? Even ten of those would weigh more than 6.5 lbs!
What’s more, even with a full 30-round magazine, an AR-15 barely breaks 7.5 lbs.


And the caliber! AR-15s use .223 caliber, not even half the size of a .50 caliber bullet.
Crazy Town Is Looking For a Mayor! This lady . . . who keeps voting for her?
This is the lady who thought our Constitution was over 400 years old. She also asked NASA if they could get a picture of when Neil Armstrong walked on Mars.
So there’s that.


But she’ll keep pushing for the three gun control bills she’s sponsored, including a safe storage bill, more background checks, and even limitations on where ammunition can be sold.
Politicians this ignorant deserve to be laughed at, but it’s not quite as funny when you remember that she is a representative for thousands of voters.

You can make it a life-time career "noting, pointing-out and correcting" the technical mistakes and absurdities of the anti-gun crowd and its members, like her. Or ignore them, as nothing they say in passing has any effect or importance in this lifetime.

I disagree. There are probably hundreds if not thousands of people who watched that in shock and now think an AR is the same as a M2 machine gun. The people being lied to vote so the more people are educated on firearms terminology and how they actually function the more people will learn that a Remington 7400 deer rifle, an 1100 shotgun or the majority of handguns out there work basically the same way. The goal is to demonize a type of gun so they can ban it and then move on to another type of gun. When they get down to muzzle loaders they'll say the ram rods are dangerous because you can poke an eye out......

This.

It's not facts they care about, but fear.

True but they keep hearing stuff like Assault rifle, military grade, military style, 50 cal, machine gun etc etc. They may not know model names but most will know what a 50 call machine gun is which of course is not and AR.

And the press, even pundits on Fox, play these videos and don't challenge the leftists one iota; they pretend that's "fair and balanced". Remember the gun range that had been there for many years, and then over the top of the hill and into the next valley someone built a church. And the leftists said the gun range had to be shut down because .50 caliber buillets were landing by the church - and they held up an unfired .50 caliber BMG cartridge and said it landed there from the firing range. And not even Fox challenged them or called them the complete liars and frauds that they were.
