Congressman Steve Stockman's New Slogan: "If Babies Had Guns, They Wouldn't Be Aborted"

Congressman Steve Stockman was up late last night, wading through the flood of media accounts wondering why the media isn't paying attention to the case of alleged late-term abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell and putting the finishing touches on his campaign bumper sticker. He tweeted a picture at 1:44 a.m.

If this is, as it appears, simply a masterful attempt to troll liberals, we doff our hat to the Congressman. It's impressive how he was able to roll extremist arguments on guns and abortion into a inflammatory yet elegantly simple sentence. He could have worked gay marriage in somehow, but it stands pretty well on its own.

If, on the other hand, he's seriously proposing arming infants (which, given Stockman's track record, is entirely possible), we ask him to reconsider. Babies have incredibly poor motor skills. No telling where they'd be aiming when their pudgy little fingers found the trigger.
