Sheila Jackson Lee: Turn in Your Guns

Posted: Dec 20, 2012 12:56 PM

Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee doesn't want to "take" your guns, she just wants you turn them in.

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."

Americans aren't turning in their guns Ms. Jackson, in fact, they're doing the exact opposite. Reports from around the country show gun dealerships selling out of semi-automatic weapons and ammunition as talks of more gun control get louder in Washington. From Twitchy:




Walmart stores in many different states have already sold out of semi-automatic rifles.
