    So instead of thinking magazines are one-time use items, she thinks clips are one-time use items.

    Astounding lack of comprehension.

    This was NOT a simple mistake. Nobody mistakes the box for the cereal or the can for the beverage, or the tank for the gasoline.

    The CYA followup by her handlers shows that nobody in her office knows anything at all about guns.

    It's the blind leading the blind.... dumb and dumber.

    No one in Congress really writes the bills they introduce and sponsor. Bills are written by lobbyists and then they get members of Congress to introduce them.
    On your second point, that is exactly why Congress has this resource called The Library of Congress, purchased from Thomas Jefferson, so that they can learn what they are talking about. Sadly, people no longer want to learn and Congress deals with far too many issues for each member to independently research the topic.

    Specifically, I think she represents the row of pot dispensaries that runs along Federal Blvd.

    On the chance all these laws don’t get overturned maybe we can get them clarified to apply only to the single use clips as she obviously intended.

    My Mauser C96 has a fixed non-detachable magazine that is loaded from ten shot stripper clips. I bought about eight clips about 11 years ago, empty, and have been reloading them ever since, several years shooting target matches, 20 shots for score, seven month seasons. You cannot reload clips? Wow. I feel out of touch with politicians. Can I plead ignorance? It works for them apparently.

    Has anyone ever made a clip that holds more than ten rounds anyway? So what if she meant to refer to clips specifically, they're not even relevant to the proposed legislation. Correct me if I'm wrong. The most I've ever seen are the ten-round stripper clips of 5.56 that come with military ammo.

    With this level of "knowledge" among the antigun congresscritters, why can't we introduce a bill to repeal 18 U.S.C. section 922(o) on the ground of encouraging more registrations of machine guns? (Since they like the idea of "registration" so much....)

    Wow I must have gotten really lucky, I've used my magazines hundreds of times, I had no idea they were single use.

    Damn. I didn't buy enough en bloc clips if I can't reuse them.

    Even if I didn't care about guns, these are the people running this asylum....I mean country. Is it really any wonder why this country is turning to chit.

    I want to laugh, I want to cry, I want to scream, and I want to shake some sense into people.

    They aren't immediately corrected by the media because they tend to be ignorant leftists as well - the ignorant interviewing the deliberately ignorant.

    Do you allow the people that elect these politicians to remain comfortable in their choices? Or do you do what you can to make sure they are uncomfortable?

    I think these things actually point to a scarier thing that is glossed over by the entertainment of the ignorance displayed.


    If they are introducing legislation that is certainly clearer in banning specific things than they even know how to describe items themselves, who is really controlling them?

    On whose behalf are they introducing legislation and being told how to vote?
    They are clearly not drafting or coming up with this stuff themselves.


    That shows a more fundemental problem with how things are often done in government.
    (Though sometimes it may also be to our benefit when some are told to vote a certain positive way for gun laws they likewise are ignorant about.)
    People introducing and voting on things they don't even understand.
    And many times on things they don't even read because it is some long piece of legislation with hundreds of pages they just trust some aide or other person to have thumbed through. Some other person often including the sponsor of the legislation which the other representative voting presumes to agree with, which in this case even the sponsor is clueless.

    You vote for this, and I will vote for that. You introduce this, he will introduce that, and I will owe you this favor, and can do something for you later. Combined with pressure from and adherance to various lobbying groups and campaign donors. Half of these officials don't even know what they are actually doing beyond the summary they get beforehand on what the legislation is. A summary which in this case included trying to explain that she was banning something firearms use to shoot and which she clearly didn't grasp, yet was still the sponsor of the legislation she didn't even understand the meaning of. The official creator of the law doesn't even understand what the law bans.

    I get the gun issue, but the bigger issue is the lack of comprehension on all matters. These same people vote on tariffs, energy, budgets, etc. It's hard to imagine. You are SPONSERING THE BILL!! You dimwit. How can you sponsor a bill that you know absolutely nothing about.

    Where can I get one of these "Assault Magazines"?

    Silly me, I though you needed a gun to shoot bullets. An assault magazine would be a whole lot more convenient to carry around, and cheaper to buy, too.

    The saddest part is that here lack of intelligence probably doesn't stop with gun related stuff.

    Play this crap over and over and post it to every social media source. Embarrass the hell out of this person for trouncing our constitutional rights.
