Representative Hank Johnson (D-GA) is not the sharpest crayon in the box, and today he let lose with another of his patented idiotic statements. According to the intellectually-challenged Congressman the NRA is fighting the President’s gun-control actions because of the color of his skin.
Following a Capitol Hill press conference on Wednesday, Rep. Johnson suggested that NRA opposition to Obama’s gun control policies was personal. CNSNews.com then asked Johnson, “You said just a minute ago that part of the NRA’s true colors was a personal dislike of the president. Why do you think that is?”
Rep. Johnson said, “First of all, he is a black. And as a black person being the president of the United States, that is something they still cannot get over.”
President Obama announced on Wednesday a slate of proposed gun control regulations in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn.
The NRA has expressed opposition to any new gun control proposals, arguing that new regulations would be a violation of Americans’ Second Amendment rights.
Johnson said that it was because the NRA could not “get over” the election of a black president.
“They couldn’t get over the first election, [and] they’re still shell-shocked at the second election,” he said. “That’s a pun, shell-shocked.“
If the name Hank Johnson rings a bell, he is the dim-wit who, at a congressional hearing, suggested that all the American troops in Guam might cause the island to capsize (if you cannot see video below–please click here).
This Congressional cretin makes statements that are so dumb, its a wonder that they let him out of the house without a helmet…but then again, the folks in Georgia who keep electing Hank Johnson to Congress must be as dim-witted as their representative to continue their support.
