I'm surprised he doesn't want to go back to when Friar Tuck's hairstyle was still in fashion.

Okay I really tried to get them to cancel this submission after I made this mistake. I am outing myself (very rare) but I starting watching this video and thought FOX pulled him in because it was his district. I fired the submission before I finished watching and realized how stupid this was.

Yes he is from Texas. I suffer from premature submission. I'm getting help.

I should have realized Fox interviewed him as one of their usual suspects for obfuscating the reality.

So sorry to all my fellow farkers. I feel so foolish...

He says in the first few seconds the constitution is for moral and religious people?

Sure sounds like some of these psychos truly want a civil war. Bonkers.

"We need to go back to teaching right and wrong."

They don't teach that in Texas? That seems like a problem.

"Of course we know 'terrorism' is a euphemism for radical Islam."

Wherever there's someone with more guns than teeth, Louis Gohmert is there in spirit.

It's OK. Proximity to Fox News confuses everyone. Just a few seconds is enough to disorient the finest navigator. Prolonged exposure causes brain damage, however, and is not recommended.

/ There are a lot of carpetbagger politicians in California so I had to think about that briefly.

"So when [caribou] want to go on a date, they invite each other to head over to the pipeline. ... So my real concern now [is] if oil stops running through the pipeline ... do we need a study to see how adversely the caribou would be affected if that warm oil ever quit flowing?" --- A representative of the people in our government

He was quoting John Adams from his "Message to the Officers of the First Brigade of the Third Division of the Militia of Massacusetts" on October 11, 1798.

This would be the same John Adams who signed the Treaty of Tripoli (after it was uanimously ratified by the then-Senate, without a single dissenting vote), whose Article 11 states: "... the Government of the United States is not, in →⇒ANY⇐← →⇒SENSE⇐←, founded on the Christian religion;...."

Guess which one Article VI ¶2 of the U.S. Constitution says is part of the Supreme Law of the Land?

"I had this discussion with some wonderful, caring Democrats earlier this week on the issue of, well, they said 'Surely you could agree to limit the number of rounds in a magazine, couldn't you? How would that be problematic?'... And I pointed out, well, once you make it ten, then why would you draw the line at ten? What's wrong with nine? Or eleven? And the problem is once you draw that limit ; it's kind of like marriage when you say it's not a man and a woman any more, then why not have three men and one woman, or four women and one man, or why not somebody has a love for an animal? There is no clear place to draw the line once you eliminate the traditional marriage and it's the same once you start putting limits on what guns can be used, then it's just really easy to have laws that make them all illegal."

That's okay, Gohmert is still a dick.

They weren't shot and killed twice. Therefore , mass shootings aren't all that dangerous.

Besides, this could have been prevented if the club had an armed guard. Make that two, maybe three, armed guards. The only way to stop this is to have at least 3 fully trained armed guards at every public location where more than two people gather. Too easy.

Dear Asshole Republican Texan Congressman, he was a veteran with known mental health issues.  He had been visited by county mental health professionals on at least 2 incidents. Somewhere, in someone's file, they had to have said, "jees, this guy needs help."

Donald Trump removed gun restrictions on those with mental health issues less than a year after entering office.

In what world, save but 2018 America, is it fine and dandy that a war veteran with combat experience, with PTSD who has alerted local mental health professionals due to his distress, a person who knows how to handle a weapon, whose form is "spot on" according to a witness, ends up keeping firearms and is able to order extended magazines for said weapons?

99% of NRA money supports Republican candidates.

That could be simplified as murdering /terrorizing brown "people."

You think the average Trumvpsterski doesn't have fever dreams of that possibility becoming a reality again?

Surprised the fundies haven't blamed the victims for being at a bar in the first place.

Also, along with the cop who was moonlighting, there were five off duty police officers in the building. You notice none of them made the boneheaded decision to pull their guns.
A loud, dark, crowded place full of panicking disoriented people is the last place where more guns will help more than they'll hurt.

Democrats had a pretty good run in Texas. Two incumbent Republicans who'd been in Congress for nearly all the 21st century so far were voted out. They gained 11 seats in the state legislature. They lost every statewide election, but the margins were usually around half of the previous midterm election. Three of them were five points or less. (AG, Lt .Gov, and most famously, US Senate.)

But this motherfarker Gohmert, this national embarrassment, still managed to get 70% of the vote.
