Gohmert: Boston lockdown shows gun control is wrong

Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican, became the latest to tie the Boston bombings to gun control, saying that the city’s current lockdown status is a good argument against limiting magazine size.

“Let me ask you, if you’re sitting in your home and you know there are only two possibilities for people coming to your door,” Gohmert said, “one is law enforcement and the other is somebody who has already killed Americans and continues to do so, how many rounds do you want to be limited to in your magazine as you sit in your chair and wait?”
