Video: Rep. Allen West Wants to Require Americans to Buy a Glock 9mm Handgun

During a campaign rally in Florida on Sunday, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) said that if the federal government is going to mandate that people purchase health care coverage, then it should also require that everyone buy a Glock 9mm handgun (video below).

Rep. West told supporters that it was “unconscionable” that the Supreme Court upheld President Barack Obama’s health insurance mandate as a tax.

Rep. West said: “Well, I got a great idea. I believe for personal security, every American should have to go out and buy a Glock 9mm. And if you don’t do it, we’ll tax you. Now, I wonder how the liberals will feel about that one.”

The tea party favorite also accused President Obama of endorsing slavery by raising taxes on the rich: "It’s very simple. He does not want you to have the self esteem of getting up and earning and having that title of American. He would rather you be his slave.”
