VIDEO: Rep. Jackson Lee Describes Her Terrifying Experience Holding An AR-15

U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) gave reporters a laughable description of her experience holding an AR-15 rifle.

Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) demonstrated a shocking level of ignorance when she recently described having held an AR-15 (video below).

"I don't know what else it takes but I don't believe we can stop at the door of the United States House,” Jackson Lee told reporters in the Capitol building.

“I believe there will have to be an emergence of members of the House flooding the United States Senate for Senator McConnell to understand that these initiatives today, my gun storage bill, my bill that I've introduced dealing with the caliber weapon, I've held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I had it,” she continued, holding her hands out as if she had the gun right there.

“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,” Jackson Lee claimed.

AR-15 rifles use much smaller ammunition that .50 caliber rounds, and most rifles weigh about 6.5 pounds, or 7.5 pounds when loaded with a 30-round magazine.

Weights may vary based on additions and upgrades that have been made to an individual weapon, such as scopes and tactical lights.

While the actual total weight of 10 moving boxes is arbitrary based on their contents, one can safely assume they weigh more than 10 pounds.

Jackson Lee’s assertion that AR-15s shoot a .50 caliber round was also grossly inaccurate.

The ill-informed congresswoman was stumping for three bills she co-sponsored “designed to stem the tide of gun violence” when she made her outrageous claims.

The proposed measures create gun storage laws, a new background-check process, and limits as to where ammunition can be bought and sold, according to Jackson Lee’s website.

Gun enthusiasts have called all three measures violations of their Second Amendment rights and far too overreaching to even be considered.

The legislation, passed by the House, has hit a standstill in the U.S. Senate, where Republican Majority Leader U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) has showed no interest to taking the measures further.

Democratic lawmakers behind the so-called gun control legislation have repeatedly demonstrated their ignorance on the subject while calling for sweeping reforms that only affect people who actually own and use firearms.

U.S. Representative Carolyn McCarthy recently had to admit to Tucker Carlson on FOX News that she had no idea what the “barrel shroud” featured in her “assault weapons” bill was, according to AmmoLand.

New York Democrat Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington’s ignorance about .50-caliber rounds was also astounding.

“But some of these bullets as you saw have an incendiary device on the tip of it, which is a heat-seeking device, so you don’t shoot deer with a bullet that size. If you do, you could cook it at the same time,” Eddington said.

If she thought holding one was scary, she should shoot one. I took my mom shooting a couple years ago and she loved it so much, she bought her own pistol.

The biggest problem we have with gun control is ignorance. Stupid people like this is why we have so many problems with gun regulation and finding a solution to gun violence. Before you come out and try to regulate something, you should at least get a clue about the rifle you're talking about. The good people of Texas should be embarrassed that you have someone this stupid representing you. I expected better from the Great State of Texas.

Everyone knows an AR - 15 doesn't shoot a. 50 caliber bullet! It shoots those bullets that are programmable and let you chose between heat seeking, DNA, dumb-dumb, freezing round, or stinger missile.

Geez, Congress don't know nuffin!

actually you do need to educate yourself. the meaning of regulated in the 1700s meant trained, so a well trained militia... once see it that way with the intended meaning, not the modern one reads very different. please read the correspondence of the framers of the Constitution and what they intended for this. the 1st 10 amendments were for the further limitation of Government, not ours. they also wanted us as civilians to carry weapons of war so we could be called on for service and as in the national guard. so all these posters saying any and all infringement on the 2nd is in fact constitutional.
