Video: Idiot Sheila Jackson Lee falsely claims AR-15s ‘heavy,’ fires .50 caliber bullets

On Monday, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, the Texas Democrat once dubbed a Congressional boss from Hell, made a couple of unbelievably ignorant and outright false claims regarding AR-15 style weapons.  For starters, she suggested the weapons are extremely heavy (they aren’t) and then claimed they fire a .50 caliber bullet (they don’t).

“I held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I hadn’t. 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,” she said.

Here’s video posted by Jason Howerton:


Howerton wasn’t finished shredding the ignorant Texas Democrat:


Howerton has a point here.  Indeed, her ignorance of the subject is astounding.   If she really held an AR-15, she would know that it really doesn’t weigh as much as she claimed.  But the know-nothings on the left won’t care, and it’s doubtful anyone in the Democrat-media complex will ever correct her.

Howerton also shredded her claim that an AR-15 fires a .50 caliber round:


As AWR Hawkins correctly notes, “an AR-15 shoots a .22 caliber round either chambered in .223 or 5.56.”

Yeah…  “Basically the same…”
