“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.”Diana DeGette, D--(CO)
As lead sponsor in House on gun legislation, Rep. Diana DeGette appears to not understand how they work
And that, folks, is what happens when stupid voters elect stupid representatives to Congress. Those representatives craft and fight for laws that are stupid because they have no clue about the subject matter or real effects of what they are trying to do.
In this case, Rep. DeGette confuses hi-capacity magazines with the ammunition itself and claims that if we just ban new magazines, the old ones will disappear once they are used. And Denver voters have elected or re-elected this rocket scientist 4 times. Makes you really wonder about the brain trust in that city, doesn't it? But then we always see this sort of thing happen when an area's population gets to be so dependent on government benefits that all they care about is the "D" in front of the candidates' names come election day.
Excuse me now while I go weep for my country just a little.
