Congressional candidate Jody Hice: Americans should be able to own 'cannons and bazookas and missiles'

"We've got to keep vigilant in having the right to defend ourselves and to possess any weapon that we want to possess. It is my belief that any, any, any, any weapon that our government and law enforcement possesses ought to be allowed for individuals to possess in this country provided they can afford it, obviously, but provided that they have a clean record. Right now, we have the militarization of America, we have a government armed with bazookas against the BB guns that we're allowed to have. The Second Amendment is about us defending ourselves against potentially tyrannical government. You cannot defend yourself with a BB gun if your opponent has cannons and bazookas and missiles."

Conservative pastor and talk show host Jody Hice, who this week won the GOP nomination for Georgia's 10th Congressional District, said on his radio program in 2012 that there should be no restrictions on Second Amendment rights. Hice now faces off against Democratic opponent Ken Dious, an Athens-based human rights attorney, in the general election. (via Right Wing Watch)
