I have a penis... does that count as a semiautomatic assault weapon? 1 pull = 1 shot and you can put someone's eye out with it!!

These people are the true definition of stupidity - doing exactly the same thing over and over expecting a different result each time.

Look at the states they represent; it is doubtful they'd be elected unless they were world-class RINOs. Plenty of Republicans get elected who would be better suited with a (D) behind their names, being as they are anything but conservative.

It's another reason to work within the party on the local and state level.
Showfal is right, these guys would have never been elected in those states on strict conservative principles.
However, going this far to the left is unacceptable and they need to be shown the door. The party needs to come down on them and let them know they will not receive any support from the party, and in fact that they will be targeted for replacement.

And with a similar RINO in the White House, "Who will guard the guards?"

In light of the recent SCOTUS ruling, don't these clowns see potential for another lawsuit to strike down that unconstitutional foolishness?
