Louie Gohmerterd All Over Himself Again

Gohmert: Voters need ‘at least 50 rounds’ in magazines to take out drones

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) says constituents are telling him that high-capacity magazines should not be banned because people need “at least 50 rounds” to shoot down government drones.

During Thursday interview on Freedom 107 radio, host Jeff Akin asked the Texas Republican how he felt about using unnamed aerial drones for domestic law enforcement.

“It’s pretty offensive to most of us,” Gohmert opined. “Most of us think if you’re going to use a drone and fly over our homes to analyze what’s going on in our backyard — not a lot of talk’s been given — but if you can fly over in the backyard, you can use all kinds of technology to see what’s happening inside the home as well. And I know there’s been a judge, and this former judge sure thinks you ought to have a warrant to do that kind of thing.”

“But I had somebody last week in Washington from either Georgia or Alabama that was saying, ‘Look, this goes back to we have got to have at least 50 rounds in our magazines because on average that’s about how many it takes to bring down a drone.’ I hope he was kidding, I don’t know for sure.”

1. Ignorance will kill us all.

Can somebody flag down the turnip wagon?

2. I think Gohmert is the dumbest

son of a bitch in the House. His inability to stop his gums from flapping does nothing but prove my point.

4. It appears GOP House leadership doesn't let him speak before 10PM EST.

Every time I see him on CSPAN, he's speaking to an empty chamber with most of the lights turned off.

5. Oh I know

I'd love to see the cameras pan around the room. I remember some time ago the Democrats had CSPAN do this to show the number of times some asshole was speaking to an empty room simply to give himself a bit of publicity for the morons back home. As soon as Tom Delay and his minions of idiocy took over they made CSPAN hold on the speaker.

7. To be fair, it appeared he was recounting someone else's comment.

"I hope he was kidding. I don't know for sure." -- Now, THAT comment might need some clarification. Does Louie bemoan the fact that the guy was such a poor marksman that he'd NEED 50 shots? Who knows?

I liked this one, though:
“You know, we’ve got some people who think that Sharia law ought to be the law of the land, forget the Constitution,” he asserted. “But the guns are there, that Second Amendment is there to make sure all the rest of the amendments are followed.”
Innocent question: If the Second Amendment is all that important, why wasn't it the FIRST Amendment?
