FULL INTERVIEW: Louis Gohmert wishes Sandy Hook principal had an M4 to kill shooter

We can always depend on Louis Gohmert to speak the truth. Yesterday he made a statement on Fox News Sunday about the principal at Sandy Hook Elementary that’s getting repeated on a ton of different news outlets:

“Chris, I wish to God she had had an m-4 in her office, locked up so when she heard gunfire, she pulls it out … and takes him out and takes his head off before he can kill those precious kids.”

He’s absolutely correct. We’d likely have a very different outcome if she had been armed.

Also, note further into the interview how Wallace characterizes these semi-automatic weapons as WMDs, asking why Americans should be armed with these types of guns. Gohmert simply responds that the main reason the 2nd amendment exists is so that the government would know the biggest army they’d face is the American people and therefore the government would become tyrannical like King George’s government.

    If we could, I would support the effort to clone Louis Gohmert to fill every seat in Congress and the Senate.
    OT . . .anyone read/hear/see any information on the latest Fort Hood Shooter (Fri. 3:26 am)? When I search for related terms . . .”Fort Hood”, “Kileen, TX“, “Army base shooter” all I get are hits for the Sandy Hook tragedy and Obama’s staged performance in his opening act against the second amendment. The CT shooter was callously misidentified by the msm immediately letting numerous erroneous rumors fly to suit their anti-gun agenda. . .the Fort Hood incident . . .silence. Weird?

    • NYGino

      You mean that incident involving “workplace violence”? Nadal is just a poor misunderstood victim of our prejudice towards Muslims, nothing more. By the way, this is a military base, loaded with well trained soldiers who are proficient with firearms but because of regulations they weren’t allowed to carry arms. How many of those 13 killed and 29 wounded do you suppose would have been spared if they were?

        Gun free zones kill…

    • Conniption Fitz

      That makes two shootings today…one at a movie theater and now a second Ft. Hood shooting.

      • I blame the media for hyping the bejesus out of the recent shooting! ON and on and on and on it goes… No new news… Just rehashing it… And showing the killer’s picture and wondering what might have motivated him… They’re making this POS into an idol for the mentally unstable nutjobs out there to emulate! I wish they media would stop calling him “evil” and call him a lousy loser of a dirtbag scum of the earth POS sad pathetic loser. To call him evil is to elevate him IMHO.

      Lucky you, is it not great to hear, a confident, articulate conservative for a change? To be honest with you I think he heard Mark Levin’s show friday to get ready for this show, but I dont blame him, Levin’s show is the best source for information, if only all the republicans or rinos would do the same, the republicans would never lose any fight, because at the end our message beats, the top down government rule that the democrat party stands for any time.

      • stevenbiot

        Levin is my hero. And, Louis is a guest on Marks show, often. Louis is what conservatism should sound like.

  • Wallace: Do we really want folks in movie theaters, shopping malls, and schools [to be] armed?

    You mention those places because shootings take place there. That demonstrates quite obviously that there already are folks armed in those places. We need to have the good guys be armed as well.

    Wallace: Why do [potential victims] need semi-automatic weapons?

    Because the bad guys have them, genius!

    Gohmert: Every time concealed carries have been allowed, the crime rate has gone down.

    • ApplePie101

      It’s not guns, it’s the people who carry them. I feel perfectly comfortable among armed sane law-abiding people, but not among armed irrational lawless people. But I’ve noticed that the liberal media don’t think of people as human beings, they think of them as demographics.

  • NYGino

    “The tyranny of government.” That’s what we are facing right now. That’s why the second amendment is so critical. That’s why the liberals want to keep guns out of the hands of law abiding American citizens.

    As we on this site know, every dictator’s first priority has been to disarm its citizens.

    Its the first freedom you lose.

      Not me Wolfie. Hindsight on this case is one thing. What if his vest had been filled with explosives and that is what she shot. The answer is proper security in the schools not armed teachers and administrators.

      • She could just shoot the bastard in the head – repeatedly! Hard to push a button when you’re brains are spread all over the floor! I apologize for the graphic description, but it seemed apt in this instance to use it.

        • Orangeone

          I know Wolfie but she could have also shot a student.  Teachers and Administrators need to focus on their own jobs not security, that needs to be left to professionals.  Teachers and administrators are brainwashing children, taking children to the union “protests” where violence is spewed, rewriting history, etc. That needs to be fixed and maybe, just maybe there will be less deranged kids that shoot up schools.

  • 12grace

    While we all are very saddened by the murders at Sandy Hook, the writing is on the wall, the goal of obama and his leftist thugs is to disarm us. And they will use any means to attain their goal.

    • NYGino

      I’d still like to know why the government recently purchased massive amounts of lethal hollow point bullets. Certainly not for “target practice” as they claim.

      • colliemum


        And why aren’t conservatives in and out of Congress demanding that any ‘talk’ about gun control must start with an answer to the question what this ammo is meant for?

      • FYI for those unaware (I know, that would be nobody, but I’ve started this post now and I’m determined to finish it.) of the issues of the Hollow Points:

        By Major General Jerry Curry, USA (Ret.)
        The Social Security Administration (SSA) confirms that it is purchasing 174 thousand rounds of hollow point bullets to be delivered to 41 locations in major cities across the U.S. No one has yet said what the purpose of these purchases is, though we are led to believe that they will be used only in an emergency to counteract and control civil unrest. Those against whom the hollow point bullets are to be used — those causing the civil unrest — must be American citizens; since the SSA has never been used overseas to help foreign countries maintain control of their citizens.

        What would be the target of these 174, 000 rounds of hollow point bullets? It can’t simply be to control demonstrators or rioters. Hollow point bullets are so lethal that the Geneva Convention does not allow their use on the battle field in time of war. Hollow point bullets don’t just stop or hurt people, they penetrate the body, spread out, fragment and cause maximum damage to the body’s organs. Death often follows.

        • Orangeone

          Great info Wolfie!

        • NYGino

          That’s just the SSA, The Dept. of Homeland Security has also made massive purchases (estimations from 450 million to 1.4 billion). Think about this, Homeland Security. Guess they are preparing for either a rather large influx of illegals storming our borders or some agency caused civil unrest.

          Of course there’s always the possibility that DHS will be entering a marksmanship team in the next Olympics and they REALLY want to win the gold, will be practicing a lot.

          • That info is enough to leave anyone wanting to sit down and have a stiff drink! 🙁

      • Orangeone

        And it isn’t target practice for the agencies that did the purchasing either.

  • Sandra123456

    There should be no gun fee zones for now and every Home owner should be armed, just like in Switzerland. “Why Switzerland Has The Lowest Crime Rate In The World” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nf1OgV449g

    • That’s too much like Common Sense Sandra. You and I both know that NObama will come up with a “solution” that ends up restricting gun sales ammo sales and make it damn near impossible to get a license and heaven for-fend you apply for a concealed carry license.

      With these stupid libtards and their agenda in charge, the cure will be worse then the disease. The Brits used the Dunblane gun massacre where a nutcase entered a school and killed 16 kids(1), to confiscate all guns in England and since then gun crime has gone UP!(2)

  • Sober_Thinking

    I was listening to news radio this morning (about the shooting tragedy in Conneticut)… The “host” asked the reporter, “So, is it true that the mother of this guy was a paranoid survivalist?”

    When idiots like this “host” and Chris Wallace (who is a perpetual dink) characterize people like “paranoid survivalist” or guns as “WMDs”, it just shows the ignorance and bias in the media and exposes their liberalist utopia. I’d agree with them if guns suddenly grew legs and bad attitudes and started to shoot people indiscriminantly… but that’s not the case here or ever. It’s always some sick, deranged lunatic who is doing the shooting – who is CONTROLLING the gun. When these same horrible people drive a car into a crowd of people, no one in the media screams that we need new car control laws.

    And how nice that the pResident of the U.S. (in name only) politicizes this tragedy instead of behaving like a human being for once and truly showing sympathy and condolences for the stricken families. No, this jack wagon Communist has to further his twisted agenda by exploiting their grief over this horrible tragedy. Obama must have been secretly thrilled to put his message out there after this evil event.

    While all these media buffoons and our false leader try to further sow the seeds of gun elimination and villainize gun owners… they forget about the monsters who carry out these disgusting crimes… and try to paint GUNS as the “bad guys”… when a gun could have been the “hero” in this case – though they never would acknowledge that. They acknowledge the hero cop who kills the gunman and saves the victims… but they don’t acknowledge the villain criminal who is doing the shooting. How convenient.

    Pray for these families.

          Went out to do some errands about an hour ago but I’m back now.

          • My alerts are still behind sometimes- so I wasn’t sure. Remember you told me if I ever needed to talk shout? I need a hug. I’ve got so much stuff on my mind and things are so yucky. 🙁

              Sorry ABC, I was back then I wasn’t. “Face East and shout” of course.

Just a little worried for him, and my mom who has some other kind of virus thingy. I wouldn’t worry so much, but my dad’s had a lot of heart issues (hereditary) and I worry.
                I just needed a shoulder and a hug. 🙂 You’re so sweet myNY. Thank you.

      Thank you, as always you make another great “sober comment”, Wallace is another one that has fallen in line with the media, I have been saying it for a long time Chris Wallace is a liberal, you can always tell by the way he makes his questions, the only person I would trust on that sunday show, is Brett Baeir, as I think he is the only journalist, that doesn’t sound like he has an agenda when asking the questions.

      • I like and trust Brett Baeir as well. He’s an honest guy in a corrupt profession.

    Louis Gohmert is about the only person I have heard since this ineffable tragedy occurred that has not let his emotions cloud his judgement. I refuse to be overcome with emotional grief to be guilt ridden into surrendering my lifelong hobby of owning and using firearms or any portion the guarantees of the second amendment affords me.

  • colliemum

    “… the main reason the 2nd amendment exists is so that the government would know the biggest army they’d face is the American people …”

    Repeat this sentence to all and any lefties and nin-committed goody-two-shoes when they spout about gun control.

    This is what it is about – and this is the reason the socialists, from the POS and F & F Holder down want to disarm you.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Interesting, how hyper-concerned the leftist agenda and the left-owned press is about this because it can accomplish their agenda, but not about justice for the little children killed in cold blood hatred at the Jewish school in France or about justice for the victims of the Ft. Hood massacre in a rampage of hatred by ‘Major’ Hasan.


    • If someone brings a gun to a school intending to kill the innocent children and you have a chance… You kill him! No prisoner… No matter if he’s surrendering… You kill him! The Instant Death Penalty! This is the kind of message we need to sent to pathetic losers out there. Come to a school with your gun to harm the children and you are going out in a body bag… WE don’t care if you run out of ammo… We don’t care if you try to surrender… We don’t care if you didn’t get enough hugs when you were 3! We care that you came to harm the innocent and now you will pay with your life!

    I want Mr. Gohmert to read this, and also all of you. Then you will see that Mr. Gohmert’s solution is merely a bandaid, and that what we need instead is de-feminzation of our culture. A long process to be sure, but one that is critical to the sanity and well-being of our nation and her people.

  • notebene

    What the liberal fools fail to get is that just because you ban assault rifles has zero bearing on the criminals getting their hands on them! The mentally ill and the criminally insane couldn’t care less about the laws! School administrators need to be trained to have a firearm in their possession and be able to defend their students and faculty. Locking the doors and hiding under the desks does absolutely nothing in a situation where time is precious. The students and faculty at Sandy Hook were sitting ducks because this freak coward knew no one was armed. Gohmert is right in saying that we need to give schools a better way to guard themselves…they don’t have time to waste in this horrific situation!

    • Kordane

      You’re right. Gun control is stupid because its premise is that criminals and the insane will obey the law.

      It’s as simple as that.

    Chris Wallace falls into the common trap that every liberal spews – “Do we really want folks in movie theaters and malls and shopping centers armed?” The answer is “YES, OF COURSE WE DO”. They assume these people are just being issued guns at the grocery store, willy-nilly.

    These people would be highly trained, highly knowledgeable, and totally aware of their surroundings, not just a bunch of liberals standing around, waiting for someone to shepard them into the corral.
