Logic and Allen West: what me, worry? This guy really is Looney Tunes (albeit with a nice retro flat-top fade going on).

Rep. Allen West (R-FL) says that if the government is going to mandate that people purchase health care coverage then they should also require that everyone buy a Glock 9mm handgun.

During a campaign rally in Florida on Sunday, West told supporters that it was “unconscionable” that the Supreme Court upheld President Barack Obama’s health insurance mandate as a tax.

“What will be next?” the congressman wondered. “If you don’t buy a certain type of green card, they will tax you. If you don’t buy a certain type of food, they will tax you.”

“Well, I got a great idea,” West continued. “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.”
