The Progressive Left and Democrats are being led by morons. There is really no other way to sum this up without loosing the fidelity of the concept. Are you offended by the statement – I DON’T CARE! You want proof – here is a case in point:
Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) is the chief co-sponsor of the High Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device Act, which would ban the sale or transfer of magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds. Upon reintroducing the bill in January, she said that banning what she calls “assault magazines” would “go a long way toward making our country safe.” When asked for proof that such a bill would indeed make the country safer and stop future mass acts, Rep. DeGette explained :
What’s the efficacy of banning these magazine clips? I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now, they’re going to shoot them. And 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.
Let that statement sink in a moment or two… This moron (look up the definition if you think this does not apply in this case) thinks that a ban on MAGAZINES will result in less of them being available because the are being USED UP after they are SHOT. If she is in charge of making policy then we are doomed to fail as a republic.
This battle is going to be harder to win than we originally thought. Originally, we believed that gun control was a fight between those that believed in the second amendment and those that did not. In essence, a good vs bad showdown between two fundamentally different philosophical, but nevertheless intellectual, points of view. But that is not the case. We now have to fight the Morons leading the Hoard of Moron. How do you do that with words and concepts that have no meaning to these people?
