Video: Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee ‘AR-15 Should Be Illegal…Shoots .50 Caliper Bullets’
Yes, you read that title right and yes that’s what the women said.
While Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) was working to pressure the Senate to pass gun control the dimwitted congresswoman said AR-15s are heavy rifles that shoot “.50 caliber” bullets.
Lee said she held an AR-15 but wish she didn’t because of its incredible weight (she should try an M1 Garand), she said “it is as heavy as 10 boxes that you might be moving.” I’m sorry but lets pause a minute…when do you think was the last time Lee carried a box?
But, Lee didn’t stop there, she also suggested the AR-15 shoots “.50 caliber” bullets and said that the bullets need to be licensed and taken off the street. Here’s is Lee’s complete statement:
“I held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I hadn’t. 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.”
For those of you that don’t know an AR-15 does not shoot .50 caliber bullets, it shoots a much smaller round a .22 caliber round either chambered in .223 or 5.56. If you look below on the first pictures is a .223/5.56 and the seond picture is a .50 caliber round.
This is the misinformation of the left and the fake news they spread to try and limit our constitutional rights, and these are the morons that write our laws.
Lastly, if there is an AR-15 that shoots a .50 caliber round I want one, it would be a pig to shoot but oh Lord that would be fun to shoot. You can watch Lee’s comments below.
“I held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I hadn’t. 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.” – Rep. @JacksonLeeTX18 pic.twitter.com/U71ir6BHZH
