CO Democrat Says Once Fired, Hi-Cap Mags Can't Be Used Again

Democratic U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette is a leading sponsor of federal bans on high-capacity ammunition magazines in the 112th and 113th Congresses. During a gun control debate Tuesday sponsored by the Denver Post, DeGette was asked how banning high capacity magazines - those holding 15 or more rounds - would reduce gun violence, the Honorable Congresswoman from Denver explained,
“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.”

The audience was all atwitter with giggles. State Sen. Kevin Lundberg (R-CO) even sent a Tweet to DeGette, “Just so you know, magazines are reloadable.” National Rifle Association spokesman Andrew Arulanandam told the Post, "Two words - pretty stupid," and that the member needed help.

The Colorado GOP spokesman Owen Loftus responded on Wednesday,
“It’s extremely alarming that Rep. DeGette is running federal legislation to ban magazine clips, when she doesn’t even know what a magazine clip is. Rep. DeGette’s comments show that Democrats are more concerned with appeasing their radical base, than standing up for responsible, law abiding citizens.”
At the end there, I thought she going to complain about those blow-in advertising cards that always fall out of magazines when you pick them up. Of course, the recording was cut off, so she might have - I don't know. This just points up the problem with voting while Democrat.

It is almost impossible to comment on such colossal stupidity. Don
