Another Democrat Anti-Gun Leader Opens Mouth and Inserts Foot

 

About the author: Barry jokingly refers to himself as being a minority, being that he's a Brooklyn-born, Jewish, conservative Republican, Marine Corps veteran. He is also a very staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment who believes that we cannot afford to give a single inch to the anti-gun crowd, because whatever we ... [read 's FULL BIO]

I truly believe that while we may lose a battle here and there regarding our 2nd Amendment rights (some states simply have too much power on the left – for now), we’ll win the war in the end. Why is that? Because we know the facts, and we use them in our debates.

We don’t stoop to fear mongering or conjecture, we provide hard data. We take the time to LEARN about our rights as Americans, and we defend them. We don’t bow down to left wing group-think nonsense, such as the false theory that “more guns = more crime”. We fire back with FBI data proving that as gun ownership has risen in this country, the number gun related crimes have steadily DROPPED year after year.

And then…. there’s this…. an even more incredible display of gun ignorance than Joe Biden’s last fiasco…
This one, compliments of Democrat Representative Diana DeGette

DeGette managed to get elected by some the not so bright people of Colorado. She’s the Chief Deputy Whip for the democrats in Congress, a co-sponsor in the House for the ban on high capacity “magazine clips“. (her definition)
Then, Tuesday at a Denver Post forum on the gun control debate, the senior congresswoman from Denver appeared to not understand how guns work.

Asked how a ban on magazines holding more than 15 rounds would be effective in reducing gun violence, DeGette said:

“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.”

What she didn’t appear to understand is that a magazine can be reloaded with more bullets. Only early on were magazines for AR-15s designed to be disposable, but the military changed that and now magazines are used several times. In handguns, a magazine is designed to be reused hundreds of times.

After her remarks, the audience in the forum at The Denver Post building chuckled.

She’s supposed to actually know what she’s talking about on the gun debate as she travels from House member to House member trying to drum up anti 2nd Amendment support. Just watch the clip, then spread it around and make her famous for these utterly ignorant comments.

Folks… This is how we win – we use their own words against them.
Watch the video…

  • She is an ignoramus. she is heartless. she is a Democrat. Sorry for the redundancy.

    • well it’s not really rude when you are so right……

  • She is a democrat, right? Then we can’t expect her to actually understand what she is talking about. Same as Pelosi, Feinstein, Joe Biden and Obama……Democrats seem to have lost any common sense and many brain cells too.

    • Oh my god, and these are the bozos that are making the rules for what we can do and not do, Please people tell me I am dreaming,

    • Rattlerjake

      This is not different than all of the liberal teachers and professors in this country. None of them have any understanding of how anything actually works in the private sector, they only know what they were taught in school to get their degree. Conservatives, on the other hand, usually do mountains of research so that they can understand how their subject pertains to the real world. Much like a school trained auto mechanic who has never repaired a car, has never encountered problems not in the book or learned small ‘indian tricks’ that working mechanics know, and is teaching auto mechanics.

  • I can Guarantee she knew NOTHING about the time back in the early 60’s that M16’s magazines were throw away’s.. she just another IGNORANT liberal moron who was trying to impress people with her knowledge.. which was, well.. LACKING Severely.

    • even back in the 60’s the troops still reloaded the mags when they had to and had the time, they really normally did not have to because they had so many. In a battle the last thing you want to do is have to reload a mag, I have a mag from the 60’s I got news for you there better made than the ones we buy today.

    • Conservativesniper

      Actually, her knowledge of probably everything of importance is non existent.

  • What a total and undeniable, completely arrogant and patronizing, DOOFUS.

  • Since when have they ever “confused the issues with facts”? I only wish their supporters realized that they will abandon them as soon as they are no longer needed… She wasn’t misspeaking when she told that audience member he would probably be dead by then anyway. Obamacare isn’t looking too friendly for the elderly.

    • Whackajig

      That is not quite true, Tom. Many liberweenies continue to vote democrapic even after they are dead.

      • billygeturgun

        Yep, their philosophy is vote early, and vote often! Especially when ACORN is paying you to do so.

  • She is about elitist control, and making sure the government can dictate anything they feel is right. She is a mini Bloomberg.

    • It’s almost over

      You mean Bloomtard!

    • I take exception to your comment regarding this congress bitch, there is nothing mini about her ugly fat ass.

  • Dumb as a rock. This is who you lefties have representing your view? She’s about as smart as the VP

  • I bet she got this idea from watching movies and TV. Every time a mag runs out in a movie, the gunman drops it and loads a new one.

  • Considering that she is talking to Other Dumb asses, who won’t know the difference, anyways… This is one very dangerous woman !!!
    Not only should Illiterates be forbidden from Voting, but Morons should expressly be Prohibited from Running for Office !!!

  • haroldson

    Is she related to joe biden ?

  • Chief47

    What an ignorant witch! Wants to ban something that she doesn’t even know anything about. Typical of the liberal mentality. Hate to see where this woman was educated. They may be hiding out to avoid calling her an alumnus.

    Revolution is the ONLY way to Restore our Constitution. Anything less is a friggen joke. Iceland did it without one single shot being fired (NOT reported by our corp. owned Media)_and we can do it too, that is if people like Jan, the Judge, etc; quit using the down fall of our country to line their pockets. just saying out loud like I see it.

    • billygeturgun

      I think you are on the mark MH!

  • ReaperHD

    The #1 threat to the Constitution and the American People is the Anti-American Commie Muslim Terrorist in the WH, and moorroons like this in his army to enslave us.

  • The answer to the control of guns. The guns are not the problem. The problem are the people that uses the gun to do bodily harm to others. The problem is criminals that use the gun to prey on their chosen victims; that are usually unarmed.

    THE PENALTY for using the gun against another person NEEDS TO BE MADE SO SEVERE, until a gun will be the last thing a person will want to use against another person. Lost of freedom and/or life is not something that anyone would want; even criminals. THE PENALTY should BE MANDATORY to have THE DESIRED IMPACT FOR ANY ILLEGAL USE OF FIREARMS.

    Our police have rules of when and when not to use their firearms. Law abiding citizens that possess firearms are responsible gun owners and using their guns against another person other than in self defense is not something that usually happen. Criminals don’t have rules for using their guns. I feel it is time to take these criminals off the street and away from our society or make them think of other ways to attempt to take someones property or life. Give victims a chance to fight back; if they so desire.

    My suggestion has nothing to do with what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School. A person that goes to that extreme is ready and don’t mind dying. OUR STREETS are becoming UNSAFE; because of the criminals that prey on others to take their property and in the process will kill (Usually with a HAND gun) if that is what they feel should be done to accomplish their goals.

    I suggest:
    A person using a gun ILLEGALLY AND NOT in self defense that INJUREs another person should draw a MANDATORY LIFE sentence in prison.

    A person using a gun ILLEGALLY AND not in self defense that kill another person should draw a MANDATORY LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE sentence.

    A person using a gun ILLEGALLY AND NOT in self defense that kill two or more people, shall be put to death.

    There should be much STIFFER PENALTIES for people using guns in the commission of any crime; even when no one is injured or killed.

    IT’S THE PENALTY FOR ILLEGALLY USING A FIREARM THAT NEED TO BE ADDRESSED. IT’S THE PENALTY! IT’S THE PENALTY! NOT THE GUN!

    Thanks for your time.

    • Thank you, this is gun control that would work and would not infringe on rights. Thank you for vocalizing ti so well. Also thank you for your service.

    • billygeturgun

      First let me say thank you for your service sir. Second, being in law enforcement I can assure you the penalties are already there but it takes a judge with some backbone and not an activist agenda to see that those penalties are fully carried out. We already have penalties up to and including death but too few of those who deserve this sentence ever get it and those that do sit on death row for way too many years while they get appeal after appeal, often times by liberal fame seeking attorneys who file appeals for people who don’t want them. We simply need to ensure that our judicial system is functioning properly and this would be the deterrent needed but unfortunately, we don’t have that. Too many plea bargains and way too many damn lawyers!

      • Thanks Billygeturgun; They need to Put some teeth in the penalties and make them mandatory. No plea bargaining for illegal gun crimes.

  • I say lets give Miss Degenerate 4 thumbs up for her ignorance and arrogance, and for all the thumbs to go right up her ugly fat pompous ass.

  • ken

    What is a magazine clip? That is a new one on me. Did manufacturers some how find a way to combine the two and make it work. I like how she states that once all the bullets are gone then so are the magazines,

  • OH..MY …GOLLY GOOD GOSH…There are stupid people among us….and they are in charge…

  • All politicians should have to pass an I.Q. test before being elected to public office.

    • Whackajig

      I’d trade high IQ for a few of them who had common sense.

      • billygeturgun

        No doubt.

  • Have disliked her for years, the only ones keeping her is office are the homosexual group, a real nut job and doesn’t know her where the sun don’t shine from a hole in the ground.

  • LittleMoose

    It would be nice if the people writing the laws knew something about the subject. It’s bad enough that we have low information voters but low information legislators is over the edge.

  • charles17121

    Speaking of throwing away something , Diana Deggette and the rest of the liberal idiots in congress need to be given their walking papers . If she the best they can come with it’s no wonder we have a fraud sitting in the White House .

  • charles17121

    You would have thought she would have done some research before sitting down to debate wouldn’t you but then again she a liberal who are suppose to so much smarter then we conservatives . She must be related to foot in mouth disease Joe Biden .

  • Where has her head been? Did she just get out of her shoe box? If she didn’t understand how a handgun or rifle works she should have asked. Her interns should all be fired and find some homeless people to help her out.

  • MadPunter1963

    Of course, then her mouthpiece said that she misspoke and really meant “clips — because clips aren’t reusable, right?” Somebody needs to tell her that doubling down on stupid is just doubly stupid.

    • billygeturgun

      LOL.

  • Steve j

    Be thankful that its this obvious nitwit leading the charge.
    My god, have you seen some of the things this genius has stated in public?
    The kind of things you dread hearing about on the day of the worst hangover of your life!

  • Bob

    “We just have to vote for it first and then we’ll see what’s in it!” Dumbocrats

  • Mario

    Can she even spell her name? What state and country does she represent.

    • liliq

      United States of Mexico, she was sent by Barack Obama to enlighten the masses

  • Anonymous Patriot

    Liberals take pride in their ignorance of topics they don’t like, or can’t understand. Being ignorant of things they are against is like a badge of honor in the democrat/liberal/socialist camp. They think even KNOWING how a gun works is offensive.

    They are truly morons.

    • Whackajig

      Do you recall the black legislator who was afraid the the island of Guam would tip over if a contingent of 20,000 marines were based on one end?

      • LOL! Yes. He was a joke for a long time; and some people still view him as being a joke.

  • Whackajig

    The liberal leaders are incredibly stupid. Their followers even more stupid.

  • “you might be dead anyway” ranks with Hillary’s comment about Benghazi and “what difference does it make”. America’s brightest minds. Yeah, we’re doing just fine America, just fine. Oh, Hillary in 2016. GET ON THE STOP HILLARY EXPRESS!!! SFC Harris, bless your heart but they don’t listen, they don’t get it, they don’t care, they’re hand jobs. Representative DeGette, here in what I now call my home state is a schmuck. As is her governor. Sheriff Maketa for Governor!

  • These are the people in charge of our country!! GOD HELP US!!!!!

  • First, we have to stop calling these lilliputians Democrats, they are COMMUNISTS! She, like Hillory and most of the… hmm, supposedly women, are ole, ugly, commie dykes that are brainless bitch-witches!

  • Barry Kaplan

    And the biggest problem with her nonsense is that the vast majority of those who voted for her will NEVER hear about what she said – even though it was all over the news… You can’t fix stupid, and you surely can’t fix willfully ignorant.

  • billygeturgun

    ” magazines are used several times” – REALLY? They want to bash this liberal idiot about her “knowledge or lack thereof” but since when did magazines become expendable after being used several times? I have used the magazines in my Glock for years without a single issue and my AR mags have been just as durable. I can’t tell you how many times I have reloaded and emptied all of my magazines and excepting for a problem with the feed ramp in one Ruger pistol, I have NEVER had a problem with any of my magazines that have been used way more than “several times” so I think this article is a little hypocritical. Yes, this woman is a complete idiot but remember when you live in glass houses, don’t throw stones!

  • John Stanley

    The best part of this is the snotty, above-the-rest-of-you, “I’ve got this all figured-out, so you mere peasants need to try to get up-to-speed on this latest Liberal innovation,” attitude she adopts while telling the citizens of Colorado how it’s going to be. The thing that you have to wonder about, and I’ve been saying this, for decades, is, if she’s that ill-informed or delusional about THIS subject, just what other sorts of areas of “expertise” is she drawing upon to come up with OTHER “wise policies?” I wish that this clip hadn’t been ended so soon, because you can hear people in the audience belatedly registering just how stupid her statement was, and the begin laughing out loud at her, and more howls of derisive laughter are needed. The same thing happened at a town hall meeting with a Liberal legislator in Western New York, when he told those gathered what they were going to have to do. They simply laughed at him, loud and hard, and it wasn’t contrived; it was in honest, involuntary response to someone who had bitten off way more than they could chew, like a tubby Cub Scout talking smack to a roomful of exasperated MMA fighters. I’ve been in both rural and in urban settings in Colorado. I recall Columbine. I recall Aurora. I also recall one woman with a concealed carry permit STOPPING a deranged shooter in that mega church in Colorado Springs back in December of ’07. What Jeanne Assam did with her Model 92F WORKED. This legislative nonsense DOESN’T, and never has. Imagine how the Media would’ve howled with laughter, had a Conservative politician said anything this foolish.
