Dem Rep Jackson Lee: AR-15 Fires .50-Cal Round, 50 Cal Must Be Licensed

Published

on

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) is possibly the dumbest politician I have ever seen and bonus… she’s downright mean and corrupt as well. Last week, she told her fellow Democrats that they needed to “start “flooding” the Senate with gun-control bills. Then she proceeded to make a complete and utter fool of herself on the issue of AR-15s. I’d laugh if it was not so serious an issue.

“I’ve held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I hadn’t,” Jackson Lee stated as if she had even the faintest clue about what she was blathering about. “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.” It’s a bang your head on the desk moment — this is just that stupid.

Jason Howerton put it perfectly with his response: “For my non-gun peeps: claiming an AR-15 shoots .50 caliber bullets is as asinine as saying your car runs on orange juice. Also, an AR-15 generally weighs somewhere between 7-8 pounds. So if 10 of your moving boxes weigh 8 pounds, you’re doing it wrong.” In fact, every single thing that Jackson Lee said is wrong. Bitingly so. Howerton himself asked of Jackson Lee’s misinformation, “Is it ignorance? Or is it malevolence?” Good question.

Anyone who knows even a little about guns knows that this woman has no idea what she’s talking about. An AR-15 weighs less than a single-filled moving box and uses .223 caliber bullets. There are some guns that can handle a .50 caliber bullet, but the AR-15 is not one of them. What Jackson Lee is actually saying is that she wants all guns and ammo regulated and confiscated. Her ignorance is showing, but her fascism is glaringly apparent.

From The Daily Wire:

“The media and those advocating for gun control have a history of reporting demonstrably false information without consequence. Two years ago, left-wing media outlets went apoplectic over firearm suppressors because Hollywood refers to them as “silencers” and makes it seem as though people can fire weapons without anyone hearing. The Washington Post that year decried suppressors, claiming it would make it harder to hear gunshots in mass shooting situations. The science they referred to showed that suppressors drop the sound of an AR-15 from 165 decibels to 135 decibels. The Federalist’s Sean Davis noted at the time that the “federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration bans employers from exposing employees to 115 decibels for more than 15 minutes per day without providing them sound mitigation or hearing protection measures.”

“For reference, a jackhammer clocks in at around 135 decibels. The Post also claimed in that same article that a .22LR semiautomatic rifle – which is used for shooting small game like squirrels – is “high-powered.”

“In 2014, California State Sen. Kevin de Leon held a press conference announcing his latest gun-control bill. In less than a minute, de Leon claimed that a rifle he was holding was “a ghost gun” that “ has the ability with a .30-caliber clip to disperse with 30 bullets within half a second. Thirty magazine clip in half a second.”

“Howerton was there at that time to dispute de Leon’s ludicrous claims. A “ghost gun,” Howerton explained, are firearms that do not have serial numbers or are homemade. He went on to explain:

Firstly, there is no such thing as a “30-caliber clip” in the context of which he is speaking. He clearly is referring to a 30-round magazine. An ammunition magazine is different than a “clip,” but the two are often confused by those not familiar with guns. And though it’s obvious, there is also no such thing as a “30 magazine clip.”

Secondly, caliber refers the measurement of the width of a bullet or internal diameter of a gun barrel, not magazine capacity.

According to the Associated Press, the rifle on display in the video is indeed a homemade fully automatic rifle. Still, a rate of fire of 60 rounds per second — or 3,600 rounds per minute — is unlikely with a “homemade” rifle. Fully automatic weapons are also essentially banned already, even if they are homemade. The average rate of fire for a semi-automatic rifle is roughly 120 rounds per minute, depending on the shooter and reload time.

“Let’s also not forget how many gun control activists use armed security guards.

“The people who want to severely limit or abolish the Second Amendment don’t know the first thing about that which they hate so much.”

It’s hard to take someone like Jackson Lee seriously when she so glaringly has no idea what she’s referring to. She wants to do away with guns and the Second Amendment but she has no idea what either entails. As long as she has her armed security to keep the riff-raff away, she’s good. Guns for me but not for thee.

Twitter ripped into Jackson Lee with glee over her uninformed claims as they should. She should not be pushing legislation on this when she is so clueless on the issue. Jackson Lee royally beclowned herself once again… this woman should not be in office.

Judge Orders Hillary Be Deposed For Judicial Watch-Benghazi Lawsuit

Published

on

...

* By

We are lucky to have Judicial Watch. This is the only organization that is fighting for justice. This woman shouldn’t be walking free for the crimes she’s committed. No American citizen would be able to get away with these crimes. The left truly believe they are above the law.

It would be nice to see a Clinton in Prison.

Via Breitbart:

A federal judge on Monday ordered former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to deliver a sworn deposition in response to a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch over her role in the Obama administration’s response to the 2012 terror attack on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya.

U.S. District Court Royce Lamberth wrote in court filings that Clinton’s written answers to questions regarding the matter in a separate case were “incomplete” and “unhelpful” and demanded more information.

“As extensive as the existing record is, it does not sufficiently explain Secretary Clinton’s state of mind when she decided it would be an acceptable practice to set up and use a private server to conduct State Department business,” wrote Lamberth. “Simply put, her responses left many more questions than answers.”

The judge added: “Even years after the FBI investigation, the slow trickle of new emails has yet to be explained.”

Judicial Watch initiated the lawsuit in 2014 to uncover whether Clinton used her private email server to communicate about the Benghazi attack to skirt the Freedom of Information Act and whether the State Department reviewed records following an FOIA request from Judicial Watch. On September 11th, Ansar al-Sharia terrorists attacked the diplomatic compound, killing U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith.

FLASHBACK August 2019 Court Grants NEW Discovery on Clinton Emails!

Via Judicial Watch:

We have won a significant victory in our pursuit of the truth about Hillary Clinton’s misuse of official email and the Deep State’s efforts to cover it up.

A federal judge granted us seven additional depositions, three interrogatories and four document requests related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private, unauthorized email server.

Hillary Clinton and her former top aide and current lawyer Cheryl Mills were given 30 days to oppose being deposed by Judicial Watch (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)).

The court rejected Justice and State Department arguments to protect Mrs. Clinton and the agencies from additional discovery and ordered agency lawyers to respond to our questions about their knowledge of the Clinton email issue. The court granted all of our requested discovery but gave Clinton and Mills 30 days to file any opposition to the requests to question them in person under oath.

The new court-ordered discovery allows us to take testimony and gather evidence of Clinton’s handling of emails, specifically in an “after action memo” drafted by Heather Samuelson, Clinton’s senior advisor at State and White House liaison. The memo was created in December 2014 to memorialize the Clinton team’s processing of the Clinton emails. The discovery also asks when Justice and State Department attorneys learned about Clinton’s private email use; and what senior records-keeping officials at the State Department knew about Clinton’s emails and when they knew it.

VA Dems Introduce Bill To Take Pensions From Sheriffs Who Opposed Gun Control

Published

on

...

* By

Maybe it’s time we start taking pensions from all elected officials. Officials who are supposed to serve us. Not us serving them. These elected officials become millionaires in office. These people continue to take from the American people.

Democrat leadership is useless and dangerous. None of them should ever be allowed to have power. This is what they do with that power. The Founders warned us this would happen.

Dear American people..stop voting these people into office.

Via Breitbart:

During CPAC, Culpepper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins told Breitbart News that Virginia Democrats are punishing sheriffs who continue to stand against gun control.

On December 7, 2019, Breitbart News reported Jenkins’ announcement that he was ready to “deputize thousands” to defend Second Amendment rights had the Virginia Democrats passed gun bans and other controls that were being pushed.

He made clear he equated his actions with calling forth the militia to defend freedom. He quoted Richard Henry Lee from 1788, saying, “A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves…and include all men capable of bearing arms.”

Over the past weekend of CPAC, Jenkins told Breitbart News:

In early December I came out against the newly proposed legislation to restrict everything from ‘assault weapons,’ so-called ‘assault weapons,’ to ‘high capacity magazines…and said that if we’re going to take away weapons from law-abiding citizens I intend to swear in thousands of citizens as reserve deputy sheriffs so they can keep those weapons and be able to protect themselves and use them.

Jenkins said that he and other sheriffs who took a similar stand were threatened with having insurance coverage removed “from deputies and staff.” He said that sheriffs throughout the state were offered a $10,000 raise “if we would tuck tail and follow [the Democrats’] lead and stop the push-back.”

But Jenkins refused to cower, and said they responded by saying “they would take away the raises of the deputies if we didn’t stop.”

He said State Sen. Janet Howell (D) “introduced a bill for next session where she could remove the pension of sheriffs…next year for…saying that we won’t follow unconstitutional laws or that I would use my lawful powers as sheriff to swear in thousands of people as deputies.”

Virginia Sheriff Vows to ‘Deputize Thousands’ to Defend Gun Rights

Via Breitbart:

Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins says he will “deputize thousands” to defend gun rights should incoming Democrats use their legislative positions to enact more gun control in Virginia.

On December 4, 2019, Jenkins used a Facebook post to thank the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors for standing with the dozens of other counties that have declared their intention to defend the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

But his joy was mixed with somber warnings:

Every Sheriff and Commonwealth Attorney in Virginia will see the consequences if our General Assembly passes further unnecessary gun restrictions. “Red Flag” laws without due process will create enormous conflict as well.

America has more guns than citizens and murder has long been illegal. At best, the proposed gun restrictions will disarm or handicap our law-abiding in their defense and possibly cause a criminal to choose another tool for evil.

He added:

I remain very optimistic that our General Assembly will not pass the proposed bills. Obviously, if passed, there are many of us willing to challenge these laws through the courts. In addition, if necessary, I plan to properly screen and deputize thousands of our law-abiding citizens to protect their constitutional right to own firearms.”

In January, Sheriff Richard Vaughan vowed to defend the 2nd Amendment, also.
