    Colorado Dem. says number of magazines will decrease as bullets are used up

    Here’s what Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) had to say on the efficacy of banning high capacity magazines:

    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
    Surely nobody crafting gun-control legislation could be THAT stupid. And not the primary sponsor on the legislative effort to ban these magazines. Thankfully, her office was able to clarify the remark, assuring all concerned that DeGette had studied the issue for many years and apparently just misspoke.

    She meant to say "clips" not "magazines" :

    "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. "Quite frankly, this is just another example of opponents of common-sense gun violence prevention trying to manipulate the facts"
    Let's all put our faith back into government. This was just another example of gun owners’ stunning lack of common sense and distortion of the "facts". I'm sure a clarification on the earlier clarification is forthcoming.

    What an idiot.
    Why is this person allowed to craft legislation?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    That exchange was hilarious. The audience members laughing at her stupidity was even better.

    They laugh even harder in another exchange where she tells a senior concerned about home intrusion that he's got nothing to worry about because the police would be there "within minutes"

    To make matters worse, when the guy responds that he'd be dead by that time, she says "you'd probably be dead anyway."


    (you have to go 30 seconds for her remarks)

    They may not let her use the crayons much, but she still has a voice (and vote) in the CO legislature. Not nearly as insane as NY, which says you can have 10 (to ??? grandfathered in) round magazines but may only put 7 rounds into them "legally". My pistol, a .380 w/15 round magazine(s), is still "legal" in CO but not in NY if simply loaded as intended. What has yet to be explained is how anyone, traveling accross the country, is expected to comply with gun laws as they cross state/county/city lines - since each may have their own unique view of what the 2A "really" means.

    Typical mindless ****head. She truly doesn't even understand what she is trying to ban. As for her comments on police response...another one of those times when if you only have seconds, they assure you, 'help' will be there in 'minutes'. Kinda like that timely police response in Sandy Hook. Minutes. Just 10 of them.

    She's from Denver. They're pretty much a miniature New York over there.

    "Qualified" to serve in goverment. How many empty headed elected/appointed officials in your lifetime have proven beyond question they are at best, lost and incompetent? Mindless liberals so disillusioned and doing nothing to improve their expertise as long as they are permitted to say something on a subject removing all doubt they are in fact stupid.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
