Good grief! The Left has truly gone bat shit crazy. They actually think that law-abiding citizens disarming will stop schools shootings They really are addicted to collective guilt aren’t they?
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.
So, a sporting goods chain is now “part of America” because they have suspended the sale of modern hunting rifles? They are now part of the solution? Solution to what exactly? All they did was cave in to the hyper-sensitive nonsense the Left deals in.
Of course Dicks Sporting Goods, which may have just lost my business can do what it wants. But this move by them is transparently superficial. This is the type of emotionalistic “solutions” Liberal minds come up with. They like to “make a difference”, they feel that by doing something, they are really making things better. Whether or not these “somethings” work, or are effective matters not. For Liberals, it is enough to feel like they are doing right thing.
