Kansas resolution condemns state rep who suggested immigrants be shot - CNN

Democratic leaders in Kansas' state legislature plan to introduce a resolution condemning a state representative for earlier suggesting that illegal immigrants be shot like feral hogs.

The resolution -- which was e-mailed Friday to CNN by Haley Pollock, a spokeswoman for Kansas House Minority Leader Paul Davis -- singles out Rep. Virgil Peck for comments he made March 14 during an appropriations committee hearing.

"Although Rep. Peck has the right to free speech ... that right does not include the advocacy of gratuitous, deadly violence against other human beings," the resolution states.
