This time brought to you by Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo:
“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,” she said.
She went on to say that “the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will be shot and there won’t be any more available.”
The comment drew laughter from those in attendance.
DeGette also had this to say to a constituent:
The audio was not very clear, but the man can be heard talking about being at a disadvantage when facing an armed criminal.
“The good news for you, you live in Denver. The Denver PD would be there within minutes,” she said to laughter.
“You’d probably be dead anyway,” she added, smirking.
