Congress Rubén Hinojosa (D) Draws a Blank on The Second Amendment

This guy has been a serving congressman for Texas for more then a decade and a half; Texas. I mean come on, not only is this guy a congressman, but he serves for Texas. Did I mention Texas?

"Asked Wednesday about the Second Amendment, longtime U.S. Rep. Rubén Hinojosa fumbled for an answer.

“There are so many people in Washington who come and talk to us about the Constitution and the rights that they want kept sacred and that not do anything about them. (sic) That we not change them. That we not amend them,” said Hinojosa. “And I can tell you that — I’m drawing a blank on the Second Amendment, but I think it’s the weapons, isn’t it? The NRA?”

Hinojosa recovered after a brief pause, recalling how the 1999 Columbine High School massacre convinced him America needs stronger background checks at weekend gun shows and that he supports more restrictive gun laws.
Hinojosa spoke Wednesday at a political debate hosted by the McAllen Rotary Club, which drew about 50 people to the Salvation Army building, 1600 N. 23rd St. The 72-year-old Democrat from Mercedes is running for a ninth term against Republican challenger Dale Brueggemann, a businessman from Seguin.
