Diana DeGette Doesn’t Have a Clue [Updated]

Look out Joe Biden, you’ve got competition for Idiot of the Year. Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colorado) spoke at a public forum on national gun control legislation hosted by the Denver Post yesterday, and what she said proves how ridiculous and out of hand things have truly gotten in this country.

Here’s what she said, and I’ll tell you that listening to her drivel several times in order to transcribe it for you guys made my brain start to bleed, so you’re welcome.

I’m the prime House co-sponsor on the ban of the high capacity magazines…what’s the efficacy of banning these magazine clips. I will tell you, these a these this is, these are um, ammunition. They’re bullets. So, the people who have those now, they’re going to shoot them. And so if you ban, 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 anymore available.

If your reaction is “there’s no way the House co-sponsor on the ban of high capacity magazines doesn’t even know what they are,” then well, you better suffer through it and watch for yourself:

Notice the laughter from the crowd of old folks in the room when Rep. DeGette got done proving how unbelievably stupid she is. Here’s a clue Rep. DeGette: learn the difference between a magazine (what you’re trying to ban) and a clip, both of which can be reloaded with those ammunition bullet thingies. Unbelievable.

What infuriates me the most is that this goes way beyond stupid. She’s the CO-SPONSOR of the legislation to ban standard capacity magazines, and she doesn’t even know what they are! To be willfully ignorant like this is malicious, and just proves that banning standard capacity magazines has nothing to do with saving the children.

You Democrats must be so proud.

    Then her office released a statement saying she simply misspoke, as she was actually talking about “clips” and clips cannot be reused….

    You would think if you were going to make up a BS excuse, you would at least TRY to come up with something better than that.

      Exactly. Last I checked, they are trying to ban AR-15’s, AK variants, semiauto handguns, etc…not the M1 Garand. She’s a fool.

      Clips can also be reused…so they got that wrong too. hahahaha

        Exactly what I was thinking.

    Did you hear that sizzle?
    That was the sound of her political career going up in flames!!

      The problem is that there was enough libtard voters to put this Mrs Dingdong Degette in her position so there will that many if not more to keep her in her position
      The reality is we have been out-bred, we are outnumbered and most of the masses have been brainwashed since kindergarten that guns are icky and only made to kill people
      As long as the powers that be give the “Free Shit Army” their perks then these powers that be will always have support and votes
      Bread and circuses is all this bullshit is, Now you have Barry Oblumpkin flying into Colorado to anoint the masses with his praise and grace

    Ole Mrs Degette is possibly THE dumbest human being i have EVER seen or heard speak
    Whomever voted for this woman needs barred from any further elections in the entire USA
    Colorado is gone, these laws will never be repealed and more and more libtards are moving in for the legal weed every single hour of the day

    efficacy – (n) The ability to produce a desired or intended result.

    Maybe she’s looking to get out of politics? At least when I speak I use small words so the Left can understand me.

    It is a very cut up film so I can’t tell from the quality of it what was really being said. I find it difficult that a representative could be that ignorant about guns being from the great state of Colorado. I have seen a lot of stupidity come to light lately and would not put it past her!

    • Hillbilly Bob April 4, 2013 at 10:39 am #

      There is a link of the full hour and a half video in the comments section of this short video above, i watched an hour of that full video and after hearing those politicians speak I have no doubt that if these imps aren’t voted out then Colorado is doomed with the rest of the U.S. to follow
      Degette’s office acknowledged she screwed up but said she was talking about actual “clips”
      Degette was asked what this mag ban would do in the future, she stated that once the bullets were shot out of the magazine then the mag would be empty and thrown away since it contained no more bullets
      This dunce thinks mags come preloaded and once empty they can’t be reloaded, she was corrected later but I don’t think she believed it as she was to busy giving the Sheriff weird looks like he was lying
      She is nothing but a mouthpiece for higher ups

      Others versions aren’t hard to find – trust me, I’m not making it up. She’s really that stupid.

    Someone needs to draw a political cartoon of a “magazine clip”. A clip for magazines.
