Meet the Republican Party: Virgil Peck edition

Some Republicans think that illegal immigrants should be shot from helicopters:
On Monday, lawmakers in a Kansas House Appropriations Committee meeting in Topeka were discussing the problem of feral hogs immigrating into rural Kansas and causing destruction to farms, and a proposal to have hunters shoot the wild hogs from helicopters when Rep. Virgil Peck, a Republican from Tyro, spoke up.

"Looks like to me if shooting these immigrating feral hogs works, looks maybe we've found a problem to our immigration problem," said Peck, who was unapologetic after the hearing, and said that he was just joking.
Read the details here. It's a Fox channel, so it must be fair and balanced.

It's funny how easy it is to find a Republican threatening to shoot people. Oh wait, no it isn't.
