Incensed Illinois Lawmaker Compares Cutting Off Citizens' Gun-Buying Rights To Castration

February 27, 2013 - 1:44 PM

Yesterday, Illinois State Rep. Jim Sacia took to the state's House floor to give a heated speech that compared gun-banning measures within the state to castration:

"Here's the problem in Illinois. I love you folks in Chicago. You're the ones that have the problem. You have a runaway gun problem. Don't blame the rest of us! This isn't about Democrats, it's not about Republicans; it's because Chicago wants a warm fuzzy. 'Let's pass a bill that will eliminate assault rifles.'  Last year there were more people killed with hammers than with assault rifles."

He continues:

"Here's an analogy, folks. I ask you to think of this. You folks in Chicago want me to get castrated because your families are having too many kids. It spells out exactly what's happening here. You want us to get rid of guns - it was not out of order, I used it as an analogy, representative! I used it as a representative! It's an analogy! If you're having too many kids, you want me to get castrated! That was an analogy to show how silly this is! You bet I used Chicago as an example because you're the folks that want this craziness!"
