Rick Scarborough of Vision America recently launched the organization 'Tea Party Unity,' which is supposed to unite the fragmented Tea Party groups.

To help launch Tea Party Unity, Scarborough had a conference call with  Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), who said he opposed gun control laws because it would be like limiting marriage partners, gay marriage or sex with animals (audio below), reports RightWingWatch.org.

"In fact, I had this discussion with some wonderful, caring Democrats earlier this week on the issue of, well, they said 'Surely you could agree to limit the number of rounds in a magazine, couldn't you? How would that be problematic,'" said Rep. Gohmert.

"And I pointed out, well, once you make it ten, then why would you draw the line at ten? What's wrong with nine? Or eleven? And the problem is once you draw that limit, it's kind of like marriage when you say it's not a man and a woman any more, then why not have three men and one woman, or four women and one man, or why not somebody has a love for an animal?"

"There is no clear place to draw the line once you eliminate the traditional marriage and it's the same once you start putting limits on what guns can be used, then it's just really easy to have laws that make them all illegal," concluded Rep. Gohmert.
