Democratic Lawmaker Thinks Firearm Magazines Are One-Time-Use

April 3, 2013 by  

If it weren’t so frightening, it would be funny: Representative Diana DeGette (D-Colo.), the leading sponsor of a bill that would impose a Federal ban on high capacity magazines, has no idea what magazines actually are.

During a forum on gun control sponsored by The Denver Post on Tuesday, DeGette was asked to give specific examples of how a ban on high-capacity magazines would reduce violence.

Her response: “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.”

No word yet on which alternate universe these one-time-use magazines DeGette wants to do away with exist.

    Wow what a fruitcake.

  • Ken Gifford

    WOW and she got elected, I find it amazing she can spell her own name.

  • EngageGrayMatter

    They live among us. And it sickens me…. No reasonable expectation this vile woman should ever be put in a position of public trust.

    This is right up there with the Democrat who worried about putting more troops on Guam would cause the island to flip over. Smart people dont want to run for office so we end up with POS like her. The people who elected her must be as dumb as she is.

  • Dallas More

    Duurrrhhh! Really dumba–! That’s right up there with the GA dem who thought the island of Guam might flip over if 8, 000 marines stationed at kadena relocated to Guam, or the idiotic dem in CA who thought the sequester would cost 170, 000, 000 jobs! These idiots should have been sterilized at birth, they’re far too stupid to be allowed to reproduce! Imagine how stupid the people who voted for them are!

  • Sharpshooter

    It is much better to be thought of as an idiot, than to open your mouth and expose yourself as a Democrat. As the comedian Ron White continually says, “there is no cure for stupid”

  • red neck

    The sad part of this is that she believes what she is saying!

  • anthony

    She’s just one more bandwagoner hoping that her choice of direction will get her more votes. The scary truth is that most people are actually that dumb, and will vote for her. Its the blind leading the blind on this particular matter.

    This is why the gun legislation is able to gain speed. Gun culture is not as widespread as it used to be. Those that have never shot, handled, or even seen a gun are understandably intimidated by firearms in the hands of citizens because they don’t understand their operation or function themselves. It is a very difficult mindset to remedy.
