You Must Go To Real Clear Politics…


…because this must be seen to be believed. The sponsor of the gun control/ban in Colorado has no idea how guns work:

CO State Rep. Diana DeGette (D) “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.”

She is clueless that a magazine can actually be reloaded. It is like the old story of having the 5 blind men describe an elephant.

And so these men of Hindustan
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right
And all were in the wrong.

It is way, way much dumber and clueless in the video than it is in the text form. You have to go look – I can’t pull the video over or I would – this needs wide distribution.

These are the fools who claim to be able to tell us how to live.

  1. She may be right about the bullets being gone- we haven’t been able to find ammo for awhile now… The twit. Do these people NEVER do any research before spouting off?

    • Depending on what kind it is, you can find it on the internet. 9mm, .45, .380. is available. .223 is still hard to find. Hmm…wonder why? \sarc off

      • Dr K,

        From my post on Internet Control Below… can see I have serious “doubts” ……………But I am remembering Liz Cheney’s recent WSJ article …. wherein she says ..”Stand and Fight “…..and Jenny Beth Martin’s Speech at CPAC ( 11 minutes)…..she says we Stand and Fight……
        I put up part of a letter by Dr Edward Harshman in a post below where he says….”..When incidents are mentioned, we should try to approach them as problems to be solved, retaining a suitably combative attitude, so that we do not destroy ourselves with submissiveness and vicarious grief. Inferring that resistance is hopeless extirpates nascent resistance, which might otherwise grow strong enough to stop the oppression..”

        We affect others around us …. it is bad out there, but we should be mindful of how we come across, Especially to those you meet who are allies or potential allies.

  2. You all are aware right, that they are trying to make ALL Transactions over the internet of Ammo and Guns illegal ??

    Then with the DHS Buying all the ammo from the source, and the Manufacturers dancing to the Tune of the DHS and NOT allocating Some of their stock to the Local GunShops…..they will have effectivly Banned Guns, encated the UN Gun regulations and done away with the 2nd Amendment…..with the stroke of Pens and the appeal to everyone…”following the Law “.

    • Don,

      There’s only one problem in their thinking: the Constitution does NOT allow the govt. to “treaty away” our rights. They can’t even do that by Amendment — but then, it requires a truly educated populace to understand this, and they handled that part long ago.

      OK, on second thought, never mind, drk is right, we’re toast. 😦

      • Yes it’s an Education issue …. many mistakenly believe the US (and all countrys) Have to abide by UN -Treaies above their own Contry’s Laws.

        That Treaties between countrys are THE supreme law……………….THIS is an issue that can be Teewted as NOT being true… is simple, for the attention challanged.

        • Don,

          While you and I may understand this issue, those who do not understand the interdependency between the Declaration and the Constitution will never see or understand it — including those who call themselves conservatives, yet fail to see that the Declaration is superior to the constitution as it is the spirit whereas the constitution is merely the letter of our laws.

          • I would refer you to the Dr Harshman quote above …. if simple quotes and facts Like you just articulated ) are Tweeted around etc … then THAT becomes part of the Zeitgeist … part of the Current Dialogue.

            It is exactly what the Left and Leftist Press has done and does now ….. Repeat Repeat Repeat !

            We need to do the same .

  3. She’s not only stupid, but insufferably rude. A senior citizen was testifying that he wanted to keep his gun because he sometimes feels afraid and Rep DeGette told him not to worry because if he’s attacked he’ll probably end up dead anyway. If she spoke to any of my elderly relatives like that I’d probably be in jail and she’d in the hospital.

    • Where I live there are 4 Gunshops in a town of less than 100K…..and multiple shops in the surrounding towns, within a 40 min drive. NONE I mean None of them have had any 9 mm since Christmas …… sometimes if you know when the shipments are coming and you wait before the store opens you can get a box.

  4. This conversation at work Monday – – – –

    Young officer walks up to group of older officers (we all own AR15s) “I just bought 1000 rounds of .223 for $3??.00.”

    Me – “Where did you get ’em?”

    Young officer – “Ordered them from Cabelas.”

    Me – “When are they going to ship them, or did you get put on a waiting list?”

    Young officer (sheepishly) – “I don’t know. I was put on a waiting list.”

    Me and another older officer – “Oh.”
