    Diana is the Senior Congresswoman from Colorado, who has been actively pursuing gun control legislation for years, yet she doesn't have any real understanding of how they work.

    Rep. Diana DeGette appears not to understand how guns work

    “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.”

    “...The Congresswoman has been working on a high-capacity assault magazine ban for years, and has been deeply involved in the issue..."

    To quote the esteemed B. Bunny: "Whatta maroon"

    Clips are commonly reused. Maybe her spokeswoman misspoke too.

    This isn't manipulating facts. She should have an understanding of what legislation she's advocating will actually do. In the absence of that, emotional pleas and hyperbole will have to suffice.

    Self-defense?? Haha, you'll probably shoot yourself. What's that? You're a Korea veteran? I know, it's a very difficult situation over there.

    So she was referring to clips instead of magazines. Fine. Most people who use ARs and AKs don't use clips to reload their magazines. Has there been a single instance where a killer had to stop firing to recharge a magazine rather than bringing a bag full of pre-charged mags? So how would this do anything? And has anyone ever even seen a high capacity clip? Who in their right mind would even try to manufacture one? I bet this lady would let her auto mechanic set her hospital's medical policy.

    She has been in congress since 1997. She has been crusading against guns for years and never once bothered to learn about the enemy? Ridiculous!

    An idiot who gets to make decisions that control your life... I'm completely amazed that Colorado was electing libtards like this back in 1997. Today, I kind of expect it, but back then?

    Looks like a bunch of winners in the CO congress. Watched some of the forum video at the bottom of the article. A CO sheriff immediately after Rep DeGette argues for magazine ownership and asks why a 15 round maximum. Rep Perlmutter's response? Because 15 is 15 less than 30. Then he states the 15 round limit is an arbitrary number, but that he feels it is good because nobody would probably need anything more. He also thinks an AR is a WMD.

    I concur.

    Someone in the Breitbart article's comments pointed out there's a Denver home address and phone number for her available on whitepages.com.

    These people have no clue. WHY did she even say such a stupid thing. How come no one in that room told her she was completely wrong?

    Not unlike our own Ginny Burdick!, but wait this woman actually allowed one of the little people to ask her an unrehearsed question. Shows them your a big person.
    She has that standard "I'm smarter than you, what a stupid question" smerk on her face that liberals in power get when asked questions against their ideology.
    So dismissive, she doesn't even pretend to have an open mind! Anything outside the teachings spoon fed to her by some communist professor or liberal parent
    is so alien to her. I'm sure she associates only with like minded people that see the world her way.These arrogant self important state politicians are spreading like
    a cancer across the country. Gun control is tough nut to crack for them and if they succeed America as we know it is lost!

    WRITE, CALL, SHOW UP, TELL OTHERS, BE HEARD!

    actually i find that offensive on the grounds that it compared liberals to those with mental disabilities (namely mental retar dation). those with mental retar dation deserve the respect of others and liberals should not be granted such respect, when they do not give that respect to others.

    (the word is separated because the filter denies the word, and to be clear i use the word to give respect not to take it away.)

    It's tough enough dealing with my own stupidity. Having to deal with this level of stupidity from lawmakers is enough to make me start barking and chase my tail.

    I dunno,... I find this statement rather scary:
    She may turn out to be more prophetic than stupid if ammo supplies don't come back to pre-crazy levels.

    And before you fire up the flamethrower, yes I know magazines and clips are reloadable. And yes it does appear that she believes they are not.

    But her claim that "no more bullets will be available" is at least partially true at the moment, and the idea that through taxation schemes, the U.N. treaty, and U.S. agencies placing massive orders for ammo, it may never return to the level(s) of price and availability we have previously enjoyed.

    what's the difference between the idiots that are elected in Washington and Oregon that are liberals and don't know their butt from a hole in the ground?
