On Fox News Sunday (where else would this man be given a megaphone) Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, says he wishes the principal at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, would have had an M-4 so she could have blown the head off the shooter before he could kill any more of those "precious kids."
More high-powered weapons are not the answer. Again, there is no reason for any civilian to have these kinds of weapons. Gohmert also repeats the oft-heard nonsense that the mass murderers go to place like schools, malls, and churches because people are not allowed to carry guns.
I seriously doubt, since they often kill themselves anyway, that they even think about whether there will be someone else there with a gun. They go to those places because that's where the people are.
Is it any wonder that we cannot get anything done in Congress when keep electing people to government who are so paranoid about government that they think they need an arsenal to keep it from beating down their doors?
It should be noted that when efforts were made to remove the term "lunatic" from federal books, only one man cast a vote against it- Rep. Louie Gohmert.
