Jackson Lee: AR-15s Weigh as Much as 10 Moving Boxes

...and uses a .50 caliber bullet.

Really? Who on God's green earth voted for this glistening jewel of ignorance?

This, my friends, is what our government "leaders" have devolved to.

    I have a .22 rifle with a 30 shot cartridge (a Ruger) that looks like an assault rifle. Wonderful Christmas present from my son.

      Same. Mine's an AR-22 by Smith and Wesson. Looks very intimidating. Even has a standard size magazine (same size as .223 mag) even though it is for .22 LR. My kids love to shoot it. At some point I'd like to have one just like it but chambered in .308. You wouldn't be able to tell the difference unless you popped the mag...

    I laughed so hard when I saw this on fb. I must have a defective AR-15. Mine doesn't weigh as much as a small moving box, and it doesn't take .50 caliber rounds either. The people who believe this tripe as just blankouts that never have tried to think for themselves. Black plastic is so terrifying be must ban it.

    AR-platform rifles are available in a variety of chamberings. The .223 Rem/5.56 NATO is simply the most common. You can get AR-15 rifles in .50 Beowulf, which is definitely NOT .50 BMG. I already had a lengthy (but fun!) comment thread on another site about what unit system the "moving box" unit is in? Is it English or metric (SI)? Is it a unit of mass or weight (they're not the same thing - things get confusing in the English system, between pounds, poundals, and slugs, but at least in the SI system, there is no ambiguity between kg and Newtons). I'm pretty sure this comment will be above Jackson Lee's head though...

    This woman is a disgrace to the Dem party.

    Thinking of it, the entire party is a disgrace.

    The problem starts when they are putting up low IQ people like her as representing the "ideas" of the party.

    Is there a normal/sane person there? Has anyone seen/heard one?

    Once they pledge their support to the platform they get infected by the insanity bug and become useless.

    The even bigger problem is that sheeple support them.

      I don't know. I think she's the epitome of the Democratic Party. That she's a dim bulb and disgrace to her constituents is just one more indictment of the idiocy that is the Democratic Party.

      Low IQ? That's pretty typical of people who allow their feelings instead of their reason to rule their lives. Thinking is hard work and, unfortunately, it's all too uncommonly practiced in these days.

      I was going to disagree with your first point, but your follow-on comments were spot-on. SJL is VERY representative of today's democrat party.

      It is a party of lies and deceit. If they feel CAN get away with something underhanded, they WILL try it. Look at impeachment as the most recent example. Kavanaugh is yet another. Etc. The list is "long and distinguished", to quote Tom Cruise from Top Gun.

      The democrat party needs a giant economy size case of Clorox to disinfect its gene pool.

        "The list is long but distinguished" is a line said by Goose in "Top Gun", not Tom Cruise.

        He said it is response to Slider's question" Whose butt did you kiss to get in here?"

        The ls in a permanent state of coma. Trump noted yesterday: "The Democrats are frozen with hatred and fear. They get nothing done."

        Their moves indicate desperation and chaos. The Huber report should come out soon and Barr is preparing to look into FISA and Obama - hopefully.

        And I trust that Trump is going to declassify the FISA documents. The GOP's reaction to the left's hysterical war has been muted and it is time for attack.

        We have been waiting long enough.

          Your movie memory is better than mine. 😎

          I’m with you on the wait. I will say that Trump has been far more cunning than I expected thus far. I have to believe that his wait is strategic in nature. I do have more confidence that the declassification will happen, just a matter of when.

            My memory is good on "Top Gun" b/c I saw it 20+ times.

            I know, it sounds absurd now, but at the time I could not get enough of the visuals of the dog fighting in air.

            So much so that every time I traveled to San Diego on business, I made time to visit Miramar and watch the F-14s take off and land .

            Avesome sight/sound!

            As for the wait: I want to believe that what you are describing is the case.

            If I were cynical, I'd say that nothing will happen on the GOP side, as they are letting the left expose the country to ever growing chaos and malaise. Historical trends would point into that direction.

            Trump may be waiting to get closer to the election and for Barr to establish more evidence. The unhinged doings of the left is also pointing to that direction, showing all the signs of desperation and panic.

      Seems dim Dem sheeple will vote for a Jackass Party career politician who says any fool thing.
      Even a liar like Blumenthal, who said he served in Vietnam when he didn't and can always be seen calling other people liars and protesting Trump appointees such as Kavanaugh.
      How low can some voters go? The answer is VERY.

    Stating the obvious: One need not concern oneself with facts to push an agenda. She'll get her treat having spoken their words and find herself another glitter hat to take away from her mug and willful ignorance.
