Illinois state representative compares gun-control measures to castration
Illinois state Rep. Jim Sacia today decried efforts by Chicago politicians to legislate statewide gun-control measures, comparing their schemes to castrating individuals who are not reproducing excessively as a means of population control.
“Last year there were more people killed with hammers than assault rifles,” Sacia yelled on the floor of the state House. “Here’s an analogy, folks. I ask you to think of this. You folks in Chicago want me to get castrated because your families are having too many kids. … It was not out of order, I used it as an analogy, representative! I used it as a representative! It’s an analogy! If you’re having too many kids, you want me to get castrated! It was an analogy.”
