Clueless Democrat Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette Behind House Bill To Ban Large Gun Magazines Has No Idea How They Work, Thinks Magazines Can’t Be Reloaded … Responds to Constituent, “You’d probably be dead, anyway.”
STUCK ON STUPID … UNREAL … THESE ARE THE IDIOTS THAT ARE PUSHING GUN LAWS.
As reported at The Daily Caller, Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette, the lead Democratic sponsor of a federal bill to ban high-capacity magazines has no clue how a gun magazine works. From her comments DeGette has literally no idea that a magazine could be reloaded and reused. What else would we expect from a dim-whit liberal Democrat who has no knowledge or business discussing a topic she knows nothing about, yet wants to force her liberal gun-grabbing, Anti-Second Amendment agenda on you? Diana DeGette’s comments are stunningly ignorant, even for a liberal Democrat.
Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette, the lead Democratic sponsor of a federal bill to ban high-capacity magazines, is apparently unaware that such magazines can be reloaded and reused, according to a comment she made at a Denver Post-sponsored forum on gun control on Tuesday.
When asked how limiting the number of bullets in magazines would help reduce violence, she replied: “I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now, they’re going to shoot them. So if you ban them in the future, the number of these high-capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time, because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.”
Some audience members laughed, but gun-rights advocates weren’t amused.
Colorado GOP spokesman Owen Loftus told the Denver Post, “It’s extremely alarming that Rep. DeGette is running federal legislation to ban magazine clips, when she doesn’t even know what a magazine clip is.” A note to the GOP spokesman so he does not sound as ignorant as DeGette, there is a difference between a magazine and a clip, STOP USING THE TERM LIKE THEY ARE THE SAME!!!
Weasel Zippers seconds the motion, it is scary to think someone this clueless on firearms want to write the laws governing them. Actually, it is pretty typical from those on the LEFT who want to inflict their ignorance on others.
As if this woman’s incompetence was not bad enough, her wise-ass comment to one of her constituents who asked her how he could defend himself against a home intrusion given the restrictions. Diana DeGette made matters worse when she responded, “Good news for you.” “You live in Denver, the DPD [Denver Police Department] would be there within minutes. . . . You’d probably be dead, anyway.”
I would not let this woman pass legislation on a water gun, let alone federal gun legislation. What kind of morons are being elected to Congress? Maybe we need background checks on Congress before they can run for election to see if they are actually competent in anything.
