Bless her heart.
You never, ever, want to be a Colorado Democratic politician and have the Denver Post write this about you:
As lead sponsor in House on gun legislation, Rep. Diana DeGette appears to not understand how they work
…Asked how a ban on magazines holding more than 15 rounds would be effective in reducing gun violence, [Rep Diana] DeGette [D] said:
“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.”
What she didn’t appear to understand is that a magazine can be reloaded with more bullets.
Well, to be fair: I have in the past had the devil of the time myself with a situation where I was using up magazines, and then not being able to reload them. Then again, that was while I was playing DOOM II.
[FURTHER UPDATE] Annnnnd here’s the video.
