GOP Rep-To-Be Jody Hice Thinks Citizens Should Own 'Cannons, Bazookas And Missiles'

Jody Hice is very, very concerned that government owns things we don't. Like nukes. And a whole list of things.

Remember how I told you this dude would make Goober Gohmert look sane? Right Wing Watch went and dug up his old radio broadcasts so we could see just how crazy he really is.

Hice then spent the second half of his program warning that liberals would seek to use the shooting to push for gun control, prompting him to stake out the extreme position that there are to be no limits on the Second Amendment because American citizens have the right to possess literally any weapon that the government possesses.

"It is my belief that any, any, any, any weapon that our government and law enforcement possesses," Hice said, "ought to be allowed for individuals to possess in this country."

Apparently this applies to tanks, fighter jets, and even nuclear weapons because, Hice argued, so long as people can pay for them and don't have a criminal record, they have a right to protect themselves from a tyrannical government with the same weapons that the government can use against them.

"The Second Amendment," he said, "is about us defending ourselves against potentially tyrannical government. You cannot defend yourself with a BB gun if your opponent has cannons and bazookas and missiles":

Nukes and cannons and missiles -- oh, my!

The problem with making Goober Gohmert seem sane is that it just mainstreams the crazy even more...is there a limit to how far it will go?
