Democratic Rep. Mocks Elderly Man During Gun Control Forum: ‘You’d Probably Be Dead Anyway’
Mediaite ^ | April 3, 2013 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 04/03/2013 2:54:59 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

During a forum on gun control in Colorado hosted by The Denver Post, Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) mocked the concerns of a senior citizen who said that his impairments would put him at a significant disadvantage in a firefight under the state’s new gun laws. She drew laughs from the crowd when she reminded the questioner that he can take advantage of the Denver Police Department’s services. She added that, in the hypothetical situation the questioner described, “you’d probably be dead anyway.”

At the Tuesday night forum, the elderly questioner described his unique circumstances and asked DeGette about how he is supposed to defend himself in an extended firefight if he has to change magazines....

This is a fine example of a Democrat that cares. She cares about faggots, drugs, and murdering unborn babies. I hope she burns in hell.

Also said the woman sitting in a building where they probably required you to disarm to attend the meeting.

There is no difference between a Democrat and the thug that breaks into your house to rape your family and burn them alive.

The fiends are of the same subspecies.

The Colorado GOP could run Abe Lincoln himself in that Denver district and not come close to getting elected.

Looks like a self-satisfied libidiot to me. How dare she condescend to a taxpayer like that, how rude. (No, I'm not surprised, of course!)

She fits right into this bunch, sure enough.

This elderly man should be made an NRA poster boy before the sun sets! They could send out flyers to every retirement community in the state about how the Democrats want them to die.

Remember that the former Colorado Democrat governor Richard D. Lamm(D), said that Elderly people have a “duty to die and get out of the way”.

Combine these two, that the Democrats want elderly people to die, and want them disarmed so that they die by violence.

I’m sure that this would be a *hugely* popular message with just about anyone over 60 years old in Colorado.

“I hope she burns in hell.”

It is acceptable to hate her actions (the sin) it is not right to hate *her*.

I hope she finds Jesus.

In the meantime, I will do what I can to see that her evil actions have no effect, or are minimized. Perhaps we can even use them to accomplish something good.

What a selfish condescending rude twit, treating him like a 2nd class citizen -- a topic that she addressed in her 2012 Dem Convention speech (before 1:15; I couldn't stand any longer).

There are no depths they will not plumb. I just don't want to go there with them.

It sounded to my ears like she was treating him like a useless corpse that ought to be buried to cover the stink. Which is something she wishes on 3,300 babies per day.

So you are in a position to judge others?

Really?

It is your place to order others around?

No, you isn't hypocrite.

I'm not a hypocrite. I never said that I wasn't in a position judge then went around judging and telling others how to act.

Fuzzy Wuzzy the head chopping, baby raping muzzie has about half-way destroyed Christianity and fellers like you sit around pontificating about not hating them while they start on the other half.

Good luck with that.

A wishin' and a hopin' and dreamin' and prayin' ain't going to feed the bulldog. Until you start hating evil, and these people truly are evil they are going to get stronger until they destroy what Jesus has built for us.

Wish in one hand and crap in the other and what do you have? Check yer hands.

The full quote was: “You’d probably be dead anyway if they had that kind of firepower,” DeGette added.

I wish somebody would have answered, "You're right. 'That kind of firepower' implies the bad guys, who don't obey laws, would be using 30-round magazines, while this law-abiding Senior Citizen would have his response limited to 10 rounds. This ban will only increase killings of those who obey this law. Are you comfortable with that?".

Of course she’s comfortable with that. The sooner the old, white, “Tea-bagger” gun nuts take a dirt nap, the sooner they’ll be replaced by undocumented democrats, as Jay Leno would say.

She is responsible for her actions, therefore to hate her actions is to hate her, and rightly so. I don't subscribe to the crap that a person's actions are not their responsibility.

The Blaze has another video of this moron politician where she says that once ‘magazine clips’ are used up by shooters that when the government bans all of these ‘magazine clips’ the shooters will have nor more. You have to hear it to believe it. LOL.

As Revealing Politics notes, Degette also seemingly revealed her lack of knowledge about ammunition magazines during the same public meeting.

“She is responsible for her actions, therefore to hate her actions is to hate her, and rightly so. I don’t subscribe to the crap that a person’s actions are not their responsibility.”

Certainly, she is responsible for her actions. But people can change, people can be educated, and our actions should not be motivated by hate of others. Hate is a very corrosive emotion.

A very good friend of mine was a WWII veteran who fought very effectively on both the Pacific and European fronts. He killed a lot of Japanese, but he did not hate them.
