Idiocies in the Gun Control Debate

Our government says it absolutely cannot keep track of its own borders or the 12 million people who live here illegally, but, it absolutely can keep track of the purchases, transfers, and components of hundreds of millions of guns and gun owners. It’s hell bound determined to try.

It would be prudent to distrust the priorities and intentions of such a government and astute to pay attention to its inevitable idiocies.

Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette, the lead sponsor of one of the president’s lynchpin bills—to ban high capacity magazines–embarrassed herself not once or twice, but thrice last week, and not just herself, but the president and his agenda. DeGette’s missteps reflect the clumsy grasping of gun controllers nationally and, also reflect the willful abuses played out in a battle test ground in her home state of Colorado.

In the tumult of debate over state and federal gun measures, the Denver Post sponsored a forum on gun control last week where DeGette explained the genius behind banning high capacity magazines: “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.”

    First of all I think that every one should be given gun training unless for mental defect(liberals) Secondly I think this women should be given a loaded gun safety off and tell her its sex toy.

    If she is the lead law maker on gun control, make you wonder where she is getting her information. Must have been after that weed bowl she was puffing on. I thought Barry was a idiot but, this lady takes the cake.
    If I were there to ask this congresswomen a question, I would ask, “How did that firearm get to the theatre? How did all the bullets get into that magazine? What type of firearm was it that could fire without someone pulling the trigger?”

    When your entire life is about politics and getting reelected you generally know very little else about the world you live in; as exampled by this representative. It is a moot point since her intent is to curry favor from Obama in order it get reelected. It is moot, also because she does not believe in gun control but people control. In order to control, direct, and dictate a populace you must ensure they cannot fight back; thus disarmament. If ANYONE disagrees then they have either never studied history or are members of the same Marxist/socialist/communist parties DeGette and Obama have sworn allegence to. Wake up America; you are about to be sheeple.

    obama told her all about them as he is so well informed on everything in all 57 states. Well these law makers can brain wash only the brain dead and there are millions out there too. our government is made up of the most vicious scum in this country who want to control every aspect of our lives.

    Our Military is the only thing that has stood the test of time and our government has been destroying it too. They can keep a record on us gun owners who number in the millions, yet all the illegals can hide in plain sight. They want to disarm us as if we’re the problem which is the furtherst thing from the truth, they are the problem that needs a make over real soon.

    Our borders are open 24/7 365 and anybody can just come in and make themselves to home, that includes murderers, rapest, terrorist, disease carriers, and drugs too and our government cannot close it as it does not want too, evil protects evil.

    *sigh* No one has ever claimed Liberals were intelligent.

    Still it makes one wonder why they think they have the right to regulate something, when they haven’t the slightest idea of what they are talking about.

      You might be surprised, she was probably just slipping up and releasing information on the Obama Administration’s plans to remove all ammunition from commerce.

    She was just lapsing into the plan of the Obamanation/Feinstein/Biden et al to remove all ammunition from commerce, so that once the remaining ammunition is expended, there will be no more.

    So, with fewer hi-capacity magazines available, mass killers will just become more proficient at changing out empty smaller ones for full ones. During the war, soldiers taped several magazines end-to-end, and were VERY adept at emptying one clip, flipping it to the other end, and re-inserting it into their magazine-fed guns. Two things were accomplished……..the rate of fire, stopping for a few seconds to change magazines, allowed some cooling of the barrel, and the shooters became proficient at the changeover! Several pairs of clips were taped together at one time and set aside.

    So, restricting the size of magazines is essentially futile! Instead of firing 30 rounds in a minute, say, they can only fire 28 in a minute, fifteen seconds~! Really reducing the firing rate and capacity, aren’t we!
