The magnificent stupidity of Louie Gohmert on the Dennis Miller Show:
“I refuse to play the game of ‘assault weapon.’ That’s any weapon. It’s a hammer. It’s the machetes. In Rwanda that killed 800,000 people, an article that came out this week, the massive number that are killed with hammers.”
No see, hammers are made for building things, whereas assault rifles are, by definition, designed to kill people. This is an important distinction. Likewise, sure, Gohmert’s head is round and soft like a grapefruit, but it’s clearly not an actual grapefruit. Get it?
