‘WTF?’ Sheila Jackson Lee held an AR-15, and… well, let HER tell you about it

The AR-15 is among guns that Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke has pledged to confiscate via mandatory “buybacks” if he’s elected president (pause for laughter). It sounds as if Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee also thinks they’re too dangerous to be in private hands. How does Jackson Lee know that? Because she claims to have held one and is lucky to not have pulled a muscle or gotten a hernia, judging from her description:
“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

Wow, there’s a lot in those boxes to unpack:
THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO WANT LEGISLATE FIREARMS. They know nothing. To say the ignorance is astounding and terrifying is an understatement.

Is it ignorance? Or is it malevolence? I have a hard time believing someone who WRITES LAWS could be this misinformed.

For my non-gun peeps, claiming an AR-15 shoots .50 caliber bullets is as asinine as saying your car runs on orange juice.

Also, an AR-15 generally weighs somewhere between 7-9 pounds. So if 10 of your moving boxes weight 9 pounds, you're really doing it wrong.

Hey, maybe if there were such a thing as an inquisitive media somebody could have asked her that question:
Color us NOT shocked.
And that speaks volumes.

EXCLUSIVE: A confidential source just sent me the AR-15 that @JacksonLeeTX18 held in her hands.

It's even more terrifying than she described.
