Congresswoman Diana DeGette hopes to ban bullets
http://www.angelfire.com/ak2/intelligencerreport/rightwing236.html ^

Posted on 04/05/2013 9:14:42 AM PDT by navysealdad

Democratic Rep. Diana DeGette is drawing national criticism for remarks made at a forum Wednesday in which she said banning high-capacity in ammunition magazines would be effective in reducing gun violence because "the bullets will have been shot and there won't be any more available." Despite the congresswoman's claim, ammunition magazines can be reloaded with more bullets and can be reused hundreds of times. (VIDE0)

Maybe if someone compared bullets in a magazine (sic) to words in her brain.

When she has said them all ...

But wait, evidence is that her brain is already empty.

That was my take hearing her original remark.

But everybody else was mocking her for her ignorance of re-loadable ‘magazines’, so I figured others were smarter than me.......

A Congresswomen referred to tracer rounds as “Heat seeking bullets”.

I think it’s still on YouTube.

Unfortunately I have had to suffer through Governor Dick Lamb who said “Old folks have a duty to duty” and Pat Schroder who wanted to fire cattle guards and now dummy DeGette who's bleeding heart has overcome intelligence. Bill Klinton’s assault riffle bill did not save one person at Columbine. There is not one article about criminals and guns in the new trash bill. They could care less that they are violating our Civil Rights. Having to pay for background checks is like the Democrats charging poll tax in the south to keep blacks form voting.

Did she contact the manufacturers of these “magazines” and obtain a users manual for these devices?

“the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.”

Her ‘premise’ may be wrong, but her conclusion has another explanation that ‘our’ government is not telling the public.

The “there won’t be any more available” is coming true, regardless to the illogical reasoning she made.

Anti-American, anti-constitution, anti-life, anti-liberty, anti-individual TOTALITARIAN hopes to ban bullets.

Hopes and changes.

Here’s what a Maryland lawmaker had to say about assault weapons, “Other than target shooting, the only other reason [for a semi-automic firearm] would be for self-defense… [Why would you need a] rifle that accommodates 20 rounds semi-automatic for deer hunting? … It’s only very infrequently that someone commits a crime with an assault weapon – why do you need one for self-defense?”

“Cant they just ban murder and be done with it?”

:)

The Proper Function of the Law

And, in all sincerity, can anything more than the absence of plunder be required of the law? Can the law — which necessarily requires the use of force — rationally be used for anything except protecting the rights of everyone? I defy anyone to extend it beyond this purpose without perverting it and, consequently, turning might against right. This is the most fatal and most illogical social perversion that can possibly be imagined. It must be admitted that the true solution — so long searched for in the area of social relationships — is contained in these simple words: Law is organized justice.

Now this must be said: When justice is organized by law — that is, by force — this excludes the idea of using law (force) to organize any human activity whatever, whether it be labor, charity, agriculture, commerce, industry, education, art, or religion. The organizing by law of any one of these would inevitably destroy the essential organization — justice. For truly, how can we imagine force being used against the liberty of citizens without it also being used against justice, and thus acting against its proper purpose?

Law Is Force

Since the law organizes justice, the socialists ask why the law should not also organize labor, education, and religion.

Why should not law be used for these purposes? Because it could not organize labor, education, and religion without destroying justice. We must remember that law is force, and that, consequently, the proper functions of the law cannot lawfully extend beyond the proper functions of force.

When law and force keep a person within the bounds of justice, they impose nothing but a mere negation. They oblige him only to abstain from harming others. They violate neither his personality, his liberty, nor his property. They safeguard all of these. They are defensive; they defend equally the rights of all.

Property and Plunder

...combined with the fatal tendency that exists in the heart of man to satisfy his wants with the least possible effort, explains the almost universal perversion of the law. Thus it is easy to understand how law, instead of checking injustice, becomes the invincible weapon of injustice. It is easy to understand why the law is used by the legislator to destroy in varying degrees among the rest of the people, their personal independence by slavery, their liberty by oppression, and their property by plunder. This is done for the benefit of the person who makes the law, and in proportion to the power that he holds.

The Law - Bastiat

My first thought was to wonder if she was ignorant enough to conflate different conversations she had had and that she was in essence giving away the true goal of banning bullets.

In Colorado it is illegal to hunt deer with 223, you need 6MM or larger and a certain amount of energy at 100 yards. There is also a limit on the number of rounds and magazine size for hunting. Why do these stupid anti gun people tell us lies about magazines ie degette one use magazine, and how to defend ourselves when their knowledge is so limited? Homeland security said that an ar15 is a good homeland security weapon. I had a bear try to enter my house so I use something much larger. Why do these “laws” not protect people form criminals?

Makes you want to leave some incentive for a bear to enter their house and let them defend themselves. They would probably be on the bear’s side if it came between you and a bear, as they believe the bear has more rights than you do.

I've probably posted this at least 50 times, but here goes again. Anti-gun liberals cannot be bargained with. First they have nothing to give. they simply want to take away our rights and give us nothing in turn. At best the bargain is to take something from you now and something more from you later.

They cannot be reasoned with. Their desire to remove our rights isn't based on reason, but a visceral bone deep fear hatred and loathing of freedom. They worship government control. You'll notice that all gun control bills exempt police. They want their beloved JBTs to be able to rule us with an iron fist.

They do not feel remorse. Every time they pass a gun control bill they feel elation, and immediately go on to pass further restrictions.

They feel no pity. They couldn't care less about some poor citizen in flyover country who was disarmed and made helpless for criminals. As long as you are helpless for the government that's OK.

They do not feel fear. To the best of my knowledge not a single liberal anti-gunner has been shot, hanged, blown up, thrown off a cliff, etc. since 1780 because of their tyrannical actions.

And they never ever give up. They will not rest until we are totally enslaved, we are killed resisting their thugs, or a sufficient number of them and their thugs are killed to render them irrelevant. and frankly I don't see that happeneing
