U.S. Congressman Dianna Degette thinks Gun Magazines are "One Use" (Video)
YouTube.com ^ | 4-3-2013 | jpl147

Posted on 04/03/2013 8:05:34 AM PDT by servo1969

The Denver Post (think N.Y. Times or Washington Post) held a Gun Control Forum on April 2, 2013. During the discussion the Congresslady revealed how little she really understands about the guns she (and other Democrats) want to regulate out of existence. She actually said, about high capacity magazines "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!" - Then, listen for the laughter in the audience.

With all due respect, Ma'am, what the **** are you talking about?

This the same woman who told a senior citizen he didn't need to worry about protecting himself because he'd "probably be dead anyway."

2) Replace google with something better.
3) Replace House and Senate with something better.
4) Replace Twitter with something better.
5) Replace Obama with something better.
6) Replace the word “better” with “anything else”.

I think she got mags and shell casings confused, but this is a perfect example of what you get when people who are totally ignorant on a subject attempting to regulate it and control it with laws. It’s not the first time the lib/dems have shown total ignorance on the subject of guns.

People this ignorant shouldn’t be making rules about things they are this ignorant about.

This is why leftism fails. They believe in the ability of their elected elites to know everything.

Just like the celebrities (is there anything they don’t know?), just because they’re good at playing pretend, somehow they’re experts on every topic.

I’ve been coaching a beginner through purchasing a handgun.
He had the same confusion between mags and cartridges.

But he’s not passing gun control laws for the rest of us.

Rep. Diana Degette (D-CO) thinks that once a once a high capacity magazine is used up, it will go away and not be shot again because magazines are ammunition. She thinks a ban will result in attrition because they are not reusable. This woman is making laws about firearms and she hasn't even a rudimentary understanding of how they operate. A majority of people in Colorado gave her the power to tell others how to live.

She has man hands.
Soft man hands.
Pale soft man hands.
Almost as icky as long thin soft man hands.

Every gun grabber needs to be compassionately adopted by a gun owner and taken to the range for a day. No, not to shoot the gun grabber, but to show him how safe and useful guns can be.

It’s amazing the number of bubble heads the Democrats are electing now or nominating to be Ambassador to Japan.

By the way, I hated it when I had to throw away my very expensive “six-shooter” once I had shot it six times and it was empty. It seems to be such a waste.

Everyone note this:

Rep. Diana Degette (D-CO) is the designated Democrat House member leading the push for legislation banning 'high-capacity magazines'.

Its not for no reason that the Democrats selected this dingbat to lead on this issue when she obviously doesn't know what she's talking about: This legislation is doomed.

If Democrats thought this bill would actually pass, they'd be climbing over each others backs to sponsor it.

The reality is that the Democrats HAVE to propose a bill banning 'high-capacity magazines', but they know it hasn't got a chance so they gave the ball to this rookie out of Colorado.

Almost as ‘bad’ as the idiots in MD (or was it NY? - hard to keep track since they are all trying to ‘outstupid’ one another) said that since there were no 7 round clips you would just have to use the 10 round clip and only put 7 in it.

Just add that to the list of charges.....
15 counts of murder.
18 counts of attempted murder.
3 counts of putting 10 rounds in a clip when the law specifies a maximum of 7.
1 count possession of 20 ounce container of soda.
11 counts attempted distribution of 20 ounce container of soda (he/she had bought a 12 pack)

That’s nothing. In the debate to infringe our rights in Maryland yesterday, Delegate Kathleen Dumais actually discussed “high capacity revolver magazines” and a “Bushmaster revolver” used in a high school shotgun shooting.

That’s great. Very accurate.

We want to be free from oppression from other people.

They consider the restrictions imposed by reality to be oppressive and seek through their actions, and the actions of “elite” humans, to remove those reality-imposed restrictions.
Example: You won’t work, you don’t eat - unacceptable reality to a leftist.

This wench is a complete moron.

I'd like to know when Republican congressmen will have the backbones to publically confront this lunacy and repeatedly verbally abuse and shame this liberal so she gains a national reputation as Denver's village idiot.

But that won't happen. Our wussy representatives are too afraid of being labeled as sexist.

Which is worse - being and idiot or being an idiot's assistant ?

DeGette’s spokeswoman Juliet Johnson issued a statement Wednesday, saying the congresswoman mispoke.

“The Congresswoman has been working on a high-capacity assault magazine ban for years, and has been deeply involved in the issue; she simply misspoke in referring to ‘magazines’ when she should have referred to ‘clips,’ which cannot be reused because they don’t have a feeding mechanism,” Johnson said.

Not that it matter much since the voters turned our state over to the Dumbocrats last election.
