There are only a few prerequisites for being a member of Congress. To run, you need to be at least 25 years old, have been a US citizen for at least seven years, and live in the state you want to represent. Shiela Jackson Lee managed to meet all of those requirements and is in her 13th term representing her Houston district…much to the embarrassment of most other Texans.

In July, Jackson Lee introduced bills that would require the licensing and registration of certain guns, prohibits “high capacity” magazines and outlaw ownership of ammunition that’s .50 caliber or higher, increase costs for FFLs, and raise the national age for buying guns. Among other things.

Rep. Jackson Lee knows all about the dangers of some of these terrifyingly dangerous weapons and calibers because of her vast experience with them, as she recently detailed for the press:

These are the people who are seeking to (further) regulate firearms in the United States. These are the people who would register your guns. These are the people who would confiscate all of the really assaulty-looking ones (for now). These are the people who work to reduce or eliminate the number of civilian-owned firearms in the United States, even as “gun violence” is at historic, generational lows.

These are people you wouldn’t want to put in charge of your local trash pick-up program. These are people you wouldn’t trust to watch your dog or water your plants while you’re away for a weekend, let alone write laws that affect the rights and safety of hundreds of millions of Americans.

Their jaw-dropping ignorance about the subjects they seek to DO SOMETHING about is only exceeded by the utter absence of shame or embarrassment they exhibit for their lack of even minimal competency.

    • Nailed it!! Actually, “ignorant doesn’t even begin to describe most of the rabid anti-2nd amendment idiots. Not to mention that they are traitors due to gross violation of their oaths of office!

    • Well… there are various 50cal upper conversions and my own 50cal uses the AR pattern, parts, and accessories ;p but its obviously not an AR.

      • I almost got a .50 Beowulf upper for an AR-10 receiver. So technically, an AR-15 doesn’t fire .50 cal rounds.

        But an AR-10 can. 🙂

        • The site I almost purchased it from included the declaration that their upper was for the AR-10 lower, not the AR-15, and to be sure you had the proper lower before purchasing. That was two or three years ago, and I don’t recall which company it was, though I might try to look it up again out of curiosity.

          Aside from that, I can’t really say more, since I opted to make my secondary caliber .300 BLK instead.

        • I wanted the .510 BECK but it turned into vapor ware.

          I’m a fan of big calibers, my next rifle will likely be .300Winmag AR10.
          Entertained .338Lapua mag but it isn’t as common and is over 3X the price for negligible improvements.

        • @Dude Homie,

          Well, looks like you’re right. This is now offered by a few sources for the AR-15 in 2019. Looks nice, but way more expensive than what I saw back in 2016. Oh well. I’m happy with the builds I have.

        • So a very brief internet search yielded exactly zero results for an AR-10 chambered in .50 Beowulf. You were wrong, so just own it. Don’t suggest that they are “now” offered in the only thing we’ve ever seen them offered in. Don’t be like the idiot in this article. Read about Alexander Arms and the development of the cartridge. Sorry for coming across so harshly, but wrong is wrong.

        • @Bruh,

          So I guess you can’t read, since an hour before you called me an idiot I had already said Dude was right, and I was wrong.

          It’s only takes a child to call someone names, but it takes a man to admit his mistakes and “own it”.

    • It is important to remember that ALL politicians are simply front men for those who pay them. Ignorant and stupid and liars ALL with very few exceptions.

      Their advantage to their Globalist Paymasters is that they are BRIBE-ABLE and electable. In other words ‘GOOD LIARS’.

      • Hey Billy Bob how do you qualify such a statement when your boy Trump the Lord of Lies himself spews more lies than all politicians on both sides combined?

        • That’s a special kind of stupid right there. Are you Shirley?

          We get us a new idjet protard troll or is this a retread?

    • She is so dumb, she is really dumb, for real. Sister of Hank Johnson or Barbara Lee? Could be a descendant of that racist Robert E. Lee? Oh my goodness!

    • “Ignorant or Lying? – Shiela Jackson Lee…” Seriously- it’s Sheila Jackson Lee. How could one tell the difference? Seriously…

  1. This does it. I was thinking about building an AR15 in 12.7×42, but I kept putting it off for later. No more time wasting. There are schools that need to be shot through and airplanes that need to get downed. 😋

  2. HEY! lady, I’ve never heard of 50 being used in a crime. They are usually long and heavy and not every gun store carries the ammo. They’re hard to use in a drive-by and if they are stolen every rock in the state gets turned over looking for them. You use a chauffeur, don’t you?

    • Truth be told, they have–twice. One of the shooters was a cop. I don’t know about the other. Termination with extreme prejudice. but yeah, even a bolt action .50 weighs 25 pounds or more. Not exactly concealable.

    • Many/most of our politicians very well could be liars and idiots.

      It doesn’t really matter, though, since the electorate keeps electing them.

      As I stated earlier today, the only thing that matters to people is pleasure, comfort, laziness, and passion. All politicians have to do to win elections is appeal to people’s pleasure, comfort, laziness, and passion — and support coercion, theft, and even murder in pursuit of pleasure, comfort, laziness, and passion. And with that winning strategy, politicians do not need to know any particular details about anything.

      Why argue with success, right?

      • She keeps getting elected because she is black. That is all that is required in her district.

        She is, unfortunately, a true representative of her district. Ignorant and racist.

  3. Meh, she still has to up her game if she wants to compete with Hank Johnson for stupidest thing ever said by a House Member.

  4. “Ignorant or Lying?” – Shiela Jackson Lee

    If not the first two then the third is a distinct possibility,Leftard Moron.

  5. If she wants to ban all AR-15s that weigh as much as 10 moving boxes (provided she can put an exact weight on those; empty boxes don’t count), I don’t care all that much. Though, I suppose it would put some limit on ability to accessorize, wouldn’t it?

  6. Actually, she’s correct about one thing. By the time some guys finish hanging their bullshit accessories on the AR platform it probably does weigh as much as several moving boxes. Especially in .50 caliber.

    • Around 12 to 35 pounds, depends on the model and optic. an optic and rings can add 3lbs easily. A fully loaded mag also adds another few pounds.

  7. “(There are only a few prerequisites for being a member of Congress. To run, you need to be at least 25 years old, have been a US citizen for at least seven years, and live in the state you want to represent.)”
    One prerequisite that was overlooked by the rule makers… “Any person seeking public office must have a CONFIRMED brain function level that EXCEEDS the activity of involuntary functions such as breathing, digestion and normal heart rate.” This would clear the House of the Swallwells, Nadlers, Schiffs, Waters’, Cummings, Jackson Lees, the “Squad”, etc. etc. etc… Way to many to list on the House side in BOTH parties and I won’t even start on that “most deliberative body” the Senate is as bad, just not as many… HOWEVER, I suppose I could give up my .50 CAL AR15 (and I assume she will want my .50 CAL Ak47?) if it helps bring the “Gentlelady from Texas 18th” peace of mind, but I draw the line at my Colt .50 revolver or the Desert Eagle…

  8. Maybe she is thinking of ol’ Ma Deuce?

    What’s with all the weapons of war on the street? I haven’t run over any weapons of war on the streets, I can only think gangs are likely at war with illegally possessed weapons and yes, they should be arrested and have their guns confiscated.

    Only gun I almost saw “on the street” was someone who drove off with his holstered carry gun sitting on his trunk, he stopped at the stop light and dashed out to grab it, whoops!

  9. “This bill also increases the cost to renew a license to deal in firearms” Even in their fantasy, ignorant minds what does this do other than punish business owners?

    • “Even in their fantasy, ignorant minds what does this do other than punish business owners”

      That’s exactly the point, and she knows it. They may be completely ignorant of technical details regarding firearms, but they know exactly what they are doing regarding regulation.

      • “…but they know exactly what they are doing regarding regulation.”

        Not so fast. These are the same people who raise taxes to punish activity they don’t like, and also raise taxes to spur the economy.

        • …or tax cigarettes because it’s behavior they don’t like, but use the money to fund children’s programs. So they end up both demonizing smokers and secretly hoping they keep smoking and spending.

          That’s exactly what happened here in CA about 20 years ago. Carl Reiner was the main celebrity who lobbied for it. Because, for the childrenz, and all that.

        • “…or tax cigarettes because it’s behavior they don’t like.”

          For some reason, they are reluctant to introduce and push legislation completely banning tobacco products.

          Waz up wid dat?

        • “So they end up both demonizing smokers and secretly hoping they keep smoking and spending.”

          Just like they demonize anyone that dares to become a millionaire (except themselves), then proceed to set up programs that can only exist through taxing of said evil rich people.

        • I don’t think they raise taxes to stimulate the economy. They do it to control a larger percentage of the economy. They may SAY they are doing it to stimulate the economy, but I’m pretty sure the vast majority of them know better.

    • more money to the government that she can distribute to her constituents, particularly those “violence interrupters’ who are members of violent street gangs that get paid by the government for not getting caught committing crimes.

  10. You’re required to live in the state you want to represent, but you should have to live in the district you want to represent. Then you wouldn’t have people like Maxine Waters (democrat) that represent a district that is 15% white, but choose to live in upscale Hancock Park (outside of her district) that’s 70% white. Now why would she do that?

  11. An AR-50 (not AR-15) could reasonably fit that description, as it weighs 34 lbs and fires 50 BMG.

    One wonders who ties these peoples shoes in the morning.

    • I know it’s silly to over-analyze an idiot statement, but even 35 lbs wouldn’t fit my idea of 10 moving boxes. Much closer to one. Unless Rep. Lee owns nothing but feathers and cotton balls.

      • She was almost certainly picturing a conveyor belt of moving boxes… little tiny jewelry boxes, all gliding along at the end of a shooting range, getting blasted by terrifying, gun-owing rednecks who don’t appreciate nice things.

  12. If you started a list of the stupid comments made by politicians it would be very long indeed. I still think Shotgun Joe holds the record tho.

  13. She’s so stupid a .50 caliber rifle, IS NOT AN AR-15!!! AR-15S HAS A .22CAL. BULLET WITH JUST MORE POWDER TO DO FASTER! LEARN YOUR STUFF LADIE BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTH!

  14. Mr. Ron White said it better than anyone I’ve heard to date ,”You can’t fix stupid. ”
    Btw, a moving box weighs about 25 pounds if I pack it, and about 125 pounds if my wife packs it and I have to move it. Either way that is a mighty hefty weapon, but being so you would think she would be in favor of them. Small children would be safe and teens would not work that hard carrying one to commit an armed felony. A double whammy winner.

    • McMillan has their .50 BMG rifle in a slightly smaller .416 Rigby specifically for the CA market. Reviews show that the ballistics provide for more accurate shots due to flatter trajectory. It’s a beaut of a gun that looks just like a big boy Barrett. Wish I could have one, but alas, I’ll never purchase another gun in CA as long Emperor Newsom and the Court Jesters are still in charge.

  15. She really is an idiot. Don’t forget the time she was visiting JPL and apparently not knowing the difference in Mars and the Moon asked, “Did the Mars Land Rover take a picture of the American Flag planted on Mars”

  16. This is the level of knowledge that those who who infringe upon your constitutional rights have. This is the level of ignorance that our legislators have on not just the subject of gun control, but on many other issues affecting the lives of the American people and the direction of the country. It’s long past time to vet these so called legislators a bit more thoroughly. Perhaps it is time to start administering IQ exams or morality and ethics tests. Perhaps it is just time to start holding their feet to the fire and base their qualifications as candidates on MERIT and JOB PERFORMANCE and NOT on who can garner and spend the most special interest MONEY.

    This Texas clown is a disgrace…she is either truely unqualified to legislate on this issue or she being purposely deceptive. Either way she is undeserving of the position she holds and the voters of her district should be embarrassed and ashamed of their own duplicity in this. Think before you fucking vote…Don’t just push buttons based on party or complacency, you fucking idiots.

    • “This is the level of knowledge that those who who infringe upon your constitutional rights have. ”

      Maybe.

      But…

      Tough to beat fear Guam would capsize if more military equipment were to be based there.

        • Poor Admiral Willard.

          I can just imagine the shit he had to put up from his peers after that choice ‘exchange of views’ back at the Pentagon… 🙂

  17. While Miss Jackson is an ignorant liar, she’s not exactly wrong here:
    10 EMPTY moving boxes of a certain size do weigh about 5.5lbs and AR15’s can be chambered for .50 Beowulf. Yet, she still had done nothing to abate her reputation for being both dishonest and uninformed.

  18. Cali banned. 50 big a long time sgo.. because, you know, B M G. It must stand for something scary. But they specifically banned that.. not other .50’s.. the .510 europ is a better round anyway.

      • Yeah, I noticed that .50 AE and .50 Beowulf are both allowed. Oh, and the .416 Rigby which is for all intents and purposes the same as the infamous .50 BMG. But whatever, right Sacramento??

    • “…the .510 europ is a better round anyway.”

      Don’t we sound like a bunch of Nancy Boys bragging about .50 class ammunition. Second Civil War was replete with rifle calibers north of .60.

      Image the impression a Minne’ Ball consisting of 3/4s inch of soft lead made.

      • yes…with a literal ball of lead as ammo…nowhere near the impact modern ammo has
        still… would not want to get shot
        back then the infection killed you if the bullet didn’t

        • “…nowhere near the impact modern ammo has…”

          Might want to take a look at some of the surviving photos of the wounds, and the treatment.

    • I doubt they will allow anything .50 or over in Cali…but i may be wrong…
      and how costly is that .510 round?
      better be reloading…right?

  19. To be fair, there are some AR15 and AR10 uppers that are chambered in various types of .50 cal rounds, including a muzzle loader variant. But these uppers are expensive and fairly uncommon.

  20. She’s not as stupid. as Senator Chis Dodd from Connecticut who tried to convince executives at Federal Express to buy submarines for shuttling cargo action the ocean.

  21. Should be pretty easy to spot anyone who uses the AR 15 she is referring to in a crime ,they would be the one dragging their gun on the ground that had a cracked upper receiver and a spent .50 cal brass jammed in the ejection port lol. An AR-15 can’t handle the pressure or recoil of an .50 cal cartridge nor can the mag well feed it or the ejection port eject the empty brass. you can get an Ar 15 in .50 Beawolf but that round is closer to a 500 s&w round that shoots from an AR 15 not .50 AE or .50 bmg like she’s making it out to be . .50 Beawolf can only hold 5 rounds in the magazine so would be a an awful choice for a crime as your range sucks on that round after 100 yards and recoils very hard so follow up shots take too much time to set up.

    • As I said earlier up in this thread, I almost got a .50 Beowulf upper intended for an AR-10 lower. The mags were 10-rd, not 5-rd. Those who have shot this cartridge liken it to a 12-ga slug.

  22. She must be speaking of the 50 Cal Barrett. I don’t know anyone who own this and am sure it wouldn’t be used in a crime. Plus I would challenge her to shoulder this rifle in the standing position impossible for her to do. She can’t be serious if she is, then she has a very low expectations on American people intelligence. Shame on you let’s drain the swamp!

  23. And yet the VAST majority of non-suicide gun deaths involve young males that have a very similar complexion to the representative…and do so with HANDGUNS
    hmmm…

  24. Just more misinformation, with no knowledge of what they are talking about. Like my mother always said before you open your mouth know what you are talking about, otherwise keep it shut!

    • “Like my mother always said before you open your mouth know what you are talking about, otherwise keep it shut!”

      Well, now. That would definitely keep me off blogs about firearms.

  25. I have seen ads for .50 cal uppers to be attached to AR15s…but I doubt they are that popular.
    Not easily carried or concealed…still have long and heavy barrels.
    And when was the last time a .50 of ANY kind was used in any sort of crime?
    Anyone out there have a date/number? Pretty rare. Extremely rare is my guess.

  26. My next firearm purchase is going to be a ATI Milspec in 450 Bushmaster. I need a straight walled cartridge firearm to hunt in my area. A shotgun just is not going to cut it in heavy woods,

  27. Ms. Lee does not have a foggy clue what she is talking talking about.Only ly a few specialty AR’s are chambered in .50 caliber.

  28. In addition to be ugly to the bone, fat, stupid and corrupt like the other Dems; she has not a clue what she is talking about. All she does is run that fat mouth of hers. Could someone put something in there to quiet her down?

    • One would think staffers getting busted for Doxxing Senate members during the Kavanaugh hearings would have quietened her down.

  29. Keep the racism at Bay old angry white man, she’s obviously uneducated on the topic, so perhaps we should help educate the lady instead of treating her with such disrespect. She has zero chance banning anything with no facts. When did honorable conservatives get replaced by hateful anti American rhetoric? Did Trump poison your mind with his madness? McCain was the last conservative with class and a spine it seems.

    • I think what you meant to say is , Mc Cain was the last “conservative” who was willing to throw his compatriots under the bus to further his own agenda. And as for educating people like Lee, even if they legitimately wanted to know the facts, I seriously doubt they could understand them.

  30. Dw I live in Houston Tx you Represent me and I am in shame at your education of firearms and the caliber of bullets I am Black American I know firearms a AR 15 only weights no more than 7lbs and the bullets it uses is a small 30. Caliber not 50 get your facts straight before open your mouth I don’t know how your last this long as Representative Houton Tx your don’t anything for us unless you can show face in a camera

  31. 10 empty moving boxes?? WTF lady! And ur brain weighs as much as 10 cotton balls! Democrates have become the kings and queens of “prove me wrong” statements! U cant listen to anything they say without having to fact check them!

  32. Perhaps she’s ignorant of the weight. I doubt she’s ignorant of it’s effects. She erred in the wording, but words aren’t the issue to her. Death by military weapons is her point. She made no mention of other guns. Only AR15s. Most of you are assuming the rest. Paranoid?

  33. This is the same dem who encouraged people to violently confront Republicans while their pumping gas or eating in a restaurant , is I believe how she stated it.She’s not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer! If this is the best the dems have no worries in 2020. The only thing she’s left out is the race card on this issue which she’s used every other chance she’s had she must be slipping.

    • No Ms. Lee is the Gentlewoman fromTexas, You are thinking of lower IQ Auntie Maxine Waters of California who actually Chairs the House Banking and Finance Committee. Niether one can lay claim to MENSA membership but both are duly (somehow) elected members of the House of Representatives… And Ms. Lee plays the race card every chance she gets.. she actually used on Corey Lewandowski when he had his way with the committee.

  34. She also thinks Neil Armstrong landed in Mars. While visiting JPL she asked if the Mars Rover could see his footprints and the US flag still there. She’s as dumb as dirt and horrible to her staff from what I’ve read.

  35. She also thinks Neil Armstrong landed on Mars. While visiting JPL she asked if the Mars Rover could see the US flag that wad left there!

    Sheila Jackson Lee gave a speech in Congress and proclaimed the US Constitution was “some 400 years old”. In this reality it was signed just 227 years from her performance.

    https://youtu.be/lTVFQEQ7xTo

    She’s as dumb as dirt and treats her staff like slaves from what I’ve read.

    Even the far-far-leftists on The Daily Beast mock her for her ignorance and compiled a list of her shameful antics…

  36. HUGE PROBLEM ** HELP NEEDED !!

    When gun control fanatics speak about “AR-15 rifles”, they “BELIEVE” that the AR-15 rifle is actually the ‘standard US Army military rifle’…. That is to say fully Automatic, with features that “civilian” rifles do-not-have.

    The only commonality between the two is that a so-called AR-15 “looks like” it’s military cousin.
    > The US Army military rifle has a NAME; it is NOT AR-15 ! and Never has been AR-15.

    Somebody Please; MAKE these distinctions CLEAR !!!
    ANYONE speaking about these two very distinct weapons *must be expected to use the correct and proper vocabulary of the English language….

    (IMO. this notion is NOT an insignificant matter; it is HUGE)

    • You can give it any nomenclature you want, whenever an idiot like Lee talks about it, it’s gonna be “evil”. And yes, a lot of alleged gun people don’t know the difference either, but that’s really a moot point. Your single shot squirrel gun is on that list too! Just a matter of time.

      • Dennis…. your comments are NOT to the point…… IF you can not provide the facts needed in my post (immediately above yours), you are wasting my time and yours…… I am convinced my question NEEDs answering and might END insane conversations and comments about “assault weapons” and “assault rifles”.

        If a person can not properly NAME what he/she is talking about, that person does NOT KNOW what he/she is talking about. SJL is a perfect example. I do not want idiots to be taken seriously about subjects as important as my Constitutional Rights, firearm ownership, and “mass murders”.
