Wingnut Idea Of The Day : Whining Texas Congressloon Steve Stockman Invites All “Persecuted” Gun Owners & Manufacturers To Move To Texas
Reality Irrelevant. The man poised to replace Louis Gohmert (TX-1) as the most galactically loopy Texas representative, 36th Congressional District Congressloon Steve Stockman, is among the more vocal supporters of virtually unlimited 2nd Amendment rights. During February 2013 he invited the public to a meeting where they would learn of the “Fallacy of Gun-Free School Zones.” Here’s the headline on his invite:
Grab free donuts and coffee before Obama grabs your gun!
Also during February, Stockman issued this cris du coeur:
I whole heartedly (sic) endorse the February 23rd “2-23 Day of Resistance” and urge every gun owner, and everyone concerned about civil rights and peace, to call their member of Congress and urge him or her to oppose all anti-gun legislation.
The right of the people to keep and bear arms in an unalienable civil and human right. An armed populace is the reason the United States are (sic) the world’s oldest and most stable (sic) democracy.
The purpose of the Second Amendment is clear. Every peaceful person should be able to possess arms without restrictions, reporting or permission to serve as (sic) an unorganized civilian military force to resist violence, oppression or invasion.
Nest, reacting to an overwhelming need, he introduced H.R. 577. Among other things, this legislation would provide more 2nd Amendment protection for those unfortunate military veterans “experiencing an extended state of unconsciousness” to receive or transport firearms.
Stockman Overdrive. Protecting the rights of unconscious veterans to receive or transport firearms may appear to some to mark the end of the road in ludicrous 2nd Amendment twaddle. If you believe that, then you do not understand the agile mind of Steve Stockman. Yesterday, he invited “all persecuted gun owners and manufacturers” to relocate in Texas, and not simply Texas, but in the 36th Congressional District, his district.
“Come to Texas!!!”, he yells, and adds what historians call “revisionist history”: :
“The state which believes the whole Bill of Rights should be followed, not just the ‘politically correct’ parts.'”
It may come as a surprise to those of us in even debatable possession of mental faculties and a grade school knowledge of American history that Texas has shown any propensity whatever to “believe the whole Bill of Rights should be followed,” and not merely those rights deemed acceptable or convenient to Texas, nonetheless, here’s Stockman’s April 5 letter:
April 05, 2013
Stockman to gun makers: Come home to Texas!
Stockman invites all persecuted gun owners and manufacturers to enjoy Texas freedom and prosperity
