Anti-Gun Democrat Can't Tell a Bullet from a Magazine
 
Quote:

One has to wonder about the American public in general, because the only way people get elected is by getting other people to vote for them.... and we have some pretty questionable people currently serving in public office. Take the leading anti-gun Democrat in Colorado who recently revealed through her comments that she didn't even know the difference between a bullet and a magazine.

It is the goal of the Democrats to get rid of so-called "high capacity" magazines. What constitutes "high capacity?" Of course, it's just an arbitrary number determined by the Democrats. In other words, they are telling us that no "common sense" American should have a magazine that holds more than ten rounds. Our course, criminals don't necessarily fall into the "common sense" category, but Democrats don't seem to understand that concept.

In any case, Democrat Rep. Diana DeGette from Colorado has been leading the effort to ban high capacity magazines. But as reported by the Denver Post, at a public forum hosted by the newspaper, DeGette revealed her complete lack of knowledge on the issue:


DeGette: “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.”

This is the mentality of the anti-gun crowd. They have no idea of what they are talking about, but they are going to tell gun owners what is good for them.

It's not the job of those of us who promote reasonable gun control efforts like background checks to know gun terminology inside out.

It's the job of gun owners to convince the rest of us they aren't hotheads looking to even up a score by using their pistolas every chance they get.

Another dingbat statement! And gun owners are expected to hang their lower jaws in awe of such brilliance.

If you don't even know the difference between a bullet and a clip, you need to keep your mouth shut. You aren't qualified to offer an opinion. It's like the gun control people who don't know the difference between automatic and semi-automatic. They have no business offering an opinion about something they know nothing about. It's like a waitress telling a brain surgeon how to operate on a patient.

Just like Cuomo and the Dems ramming through a law that limits magazines to 7 rounds. There is no manufacturer who makes a 7 round. Now they say well you can use a 10 round but only load 7. Almost all gun owners see the sheer stupidity of those who want to pass a feel good law quick so they can say we care. Folks who have never handled a weapon are not qualified to legislate mine.:mad

Actually it is.

If you want to make an argument, then you have to have some knowledge of the subject, especially considered this is a member of Congress and we're discussing what may or may not become law in the future. On paper, the statements confusing bullets and magazines look like a really poor op-ed piece, and we should expect better than that from every side in this and any debate.

Actually, this was a copy of her actual recorded statements. I have watched the video on news sites and was awestruck at the lack of knowledge this woman had.

Oh I know that, but just reading it reminded me of something you see in a bad op-ed or a Yahoo comment.

When you are taking peoples 2A rights away you better be a f*cking expert not only in terminology but in the operation and maintenance of those weapons.

The job of the gun owner is to point his weapon at you trying to take that right away. YOUR job is to convince us we don't need that right.

People who advocate for car safety might not know what an alternator does or where the spark plugs are. Does that mean they shouldn't advocate for car safety?
