Predictably, the liberals make demands rather than seeking solutions

Texas Republicans offer prayers, Sheila Jackson Lee demands action after Lone Star shootings | Texas on the Potomac | a Chron.com blog.

Woody Allen’s ex is jaw jacking and I truly wish Pierce Morgan would follow through on his threat to deport himself. Seeking her usual 15 seconds in the spot light, Sheila Jackson Lee has staked her claim.

“Today is yet another sad day in our country because of a senseless shooting at the Lone Star College North Campus in Houston, Texas. I am deeply saddened to learn about those who have been wounded because of this incident. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the Lone Star College campus community and those who have been injured and anyone else personally impacted by this senseless act of violence. I am sure that everyone in the community of the Lone Star College campus will do whatever they can in the coming days to ease the pain, tensions and concerns of all affected.

“I have introduced common sense legislation that would focus on protecting our nation from gun violence and accidents. H.R. 65 will raise the handgun eligibility age from 18 to 21, and will prohibit persons under the age of 21 from possessing semiautomatic assault weapons or large capacity magazines. Moreover, H.R. 65 increases penalties on individuals who knowingly transfer a handgun, ammunition, semiautomatic assault weapon, or large capacity ammunition feeding device to a person under age 21. We must also work to ensure that Gun Free Zones are enforced.

“My prayers and condolences go first to the families of those wounded and I share the grief of everyone affected by this event. I applaud the swift work by the First Responders. Americans have a remarkable ability to support one another in times of crisis. This is one of those times.”

Does she not know the minimum age for purchasing a handgun is already 21?  And how exactly are you going to “enforce” a gun free zone without turning these places into the armed check points and establishing the police state you claim you don’t want? Having said all this, I find it interesting that she’s not calling for an outright ban in this statement.  Is this a ray of hope for us?!  I have to wonder if it isn’t a sign that she and other liberals recognize they don’t have votes for an outright ban on modern firearms and standard capacity magazines. Don’t relax just yet heroes…I’m just thinking out loud here.  The fact is, these people salivate at the news of each new incident as an opportunity to point a finger at us.  But, here’s a newsflash, yesterday, 100,000,000 gun owners used their guns responsibly and no one was shot or injured as a result.

  1. I agree this is just stupid on display. But the key threat is here:
    “and will prohibit persons under the age of 21 from possessing semiautomatic assault weapons or large capacity magazines.”

    This could be used to prevent kids from learning to shoot our EBR’s and other Semi-Auto firearms.
