Jody Hice won a run-off election in Georgia to become the official Republican Party nominee for a seat in Congress. Jody Hice also said some rather right-winged nut-baggery things that gained him a post in our WTF category.
Speaking on his radio show back in 2012 about a mass shooting where 12 people were shot and killed in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, Mr. Jody Hice continued the usual nonsense about Liberals coming to take away the guns, and he also expressed his beliefs that the American citizen has the right to own “any” guns or weaponry the Federal government owns.
“It is my belief that any, any, any, any weapon that our government and law enforcement possesses,” Hice said, “ought to be allowed for individuals to possess in this country.”
Apparently this applies to tanks, fighter jets, and even nuclear weapons because, Hice argued, so long as people can pay for them and don’t have a criminal record, they have a right to protect themselves from a tyrannical government with the same weapons that the government can use against them.
“The Second Amendment,” he said, “is about us defending ourselves against potentially tyrannical government. You cannot defend yourself with a BB gun if your opponent has cannons and bazookas and missiles”:
