When they are advocating car safety to how the alternator or spark plugs work and trying to make those the scape goat for wrecks then yes they better know WTF they are talking about.

That's actually what these morons are doing. We want less car wrecks so we will limit spark plugs. We want less gun violence so...spark plugs!

If your job is to write laws then you most certainly should know what the **** you are talking.

This is a idiotic reason to ban 11-30 round standard capacity magazines."I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those know 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.”.So yes you should know what the **** you are talking about

JMO.
Over 99.9% of firearm owners are not hotheads. The evidence speaks for itself.



70-80 million civilians in this country who own 310 million legal firearms. 11,078 homicides a year in this country. 11,078 of 70-80 million owners is 0.014% - 0.016%. 100% -.016%= 99.984% .So 99.9845 of firearm owners are not going to kill you. If the CDC is right then there are 59,208 deliberate non-fatal violence related firearm injuries . 59,208 violence related non-fatal violence firearm injury of the 70-80 million firearm owners is 0.07% - 0.08%. 100% -.08% = 99.92% These percentages are quite liberal instead of conservative. So the odds of you being harmed by the unintended consiquences of our gun ownership is extremely low.

Gun control offers no cure-all in America - NBC Politics
The Congressional Research Service in 2009 estimated there were 310 million firearms in the United States, not including weapons owned by the military.

Every sane person is an advocate for safety in all things. Fools who profess to know the ins and outs of something alien to them look like, well, fools and idiots regardless. It is better for them to keep their pie holes shut.

I would ask those clueless ones how a telescoping stock makes a rifle more lethal than a regular solid one. I defy any of them to demonstrate how that thing is dangerous.

As an added note, I do not advocate banning any type of firearm, and I do not advocate banning any accessories. You anti-gun weenies, blow it out your asses and mind your own damned business when you deal with law-abiding pro-firearms people. Go pick on the bad guys, meddling piss ants.

The excuse by the idiots spokesperson was classic, "She misspoke." But even the correction by the spokesperson was in error.

Quote:
DeGette spokeswoman Juliet Johnson on Wednesday said the senior congresswoman from Denver "misspoke" and then issued another erroneous statement about guns.

"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.

Actually, clips in most guns can be reused as well.
The woman is a blithering idiot and I hope the people who voted for this dillweed are proud of her.

It's like a waitress telling a brain surgeon how to operate on a patient.
Background checks. Period. All gun owners should have them. No more loopholes.

If they are trying to reglate the size of your alternator or how many sparkplugs you can own, then yes, they need to know what they are talking about.

Why do you keep saying this? Are you not interested in lowering violent crime rates? Why waste time on pointless laws?

Actually, background checks work. They keep most guns out of the hands of felons.

Felons flock to gun shows to buy guns because they're lax about requiring background checks.

Panty checks. All women should have them. No holes in them. You see how stupid you sound? I've heard parrots say more intelligent babble than that crap.
