House GOP Leadership held a press conference on Wednesday about guns where Rep. Steve Scalise used the tragedy of the terrorist attack on 9/11 to defend the NRA and the mass murdering AR-15.

Rep Scalise was the victim of a firearm, yet he's so beholden to the gun lobby that he willingly played the fool.

"I go back to 9/11, because on that tragic day the country made a clear realization that dots weren't being connected," Scalise said.

See, it's dots that murdered our kids, not automatic assault weapons.

Scalise said, "When airplanes were used that day as a weapon to kill thousands of people and to inflict terror on our country. There wasn't a conversation about banning airplanes. There was a conversation about connecting the dots..."

WTF? I mean this is sickening.

Scalise tries to claim it's just as easy to hijack an airplane as it is to buy an AR-15.

I don't know any eighteen year-olds that can walk into an airplane store and buy a Boeing Jet and fly it home.

By the way, almost every airport in this country were all shut down after the terrorist attacks on 9/11. I don't see Republicans shutting down one assault weapon, let alone one high powered magazine.

Massive security measures were put in place at all airports, it wasn't only about connecting the f**king dots on overseas terrorist groups.

By the way, an American citizen couldn't even carry a bottle of liquid on an airplane for years.

A 4 ounce bottle of hand sanitizer has more restrictions on it than a AR-15 does.

Equating an AR-15 to a Boeing 767-223ER which typically seats up to 216 passengers is seriously demented.

Did you know the NRA is offering a great deal? You can fly on an AR15 to anywhere in the country for $99?

Can you help us out?
