According to The Weekly Standard:
At a fundraiser last night in San Francisco, President Barack Obama said that the Newtown killer gunned down 20 children using a "fully automatic weapon." From the official transcript, provided by the White House:
Now, over the next couple of months, we’ve got a couple of issues: gun control. (Applause.) I just came from Denver, where the issue of gun violence is something that has haunted families for way too long, and it is possible for us to create common-sense gun safety measures that respect the traditions of gun ownership in this country and hunters and sportsmen, but also make sure that we don’t have another 20 children in a classroom gunned down by a semiautomatic weapon -- by a fully automatic weapon in that case, sadly.
According to the prosecutor, Stephen J. Sedensky III, the killer, Adam Lanza, "killed all 26 victims inside Sandy Hook Elementary School with a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle before taking his own life with a Glock 10 mm handgun.
He says Lanza had another loaded handgun with him inside the school as well as three, 30-round magazines for the Bushmaster," ABC previously reported.
Each of the guns used is a semi-automatic weapon, and not one is an automatic weapon.'
Once again, I have to ask:
Who wants to ratify my proposed 28th Amendment, also to be known as "The ‘So Stupid It Makes My Hair Hurt’ Amendment"?
No member of the Federal government may opine or draft legislation on a subject on which s/he cannot pass a basic competency test on the fundamentals of the issues involved provided by the Congressional Research Service, Government Accountability Office and independent organisations. To the extent that this amendment conflicts with the First Amendment, this article shall control.
Did you know that collapsible stocks make guns “fully-automatic”? According to DiFi, they do…
“These are weapons that are made to kill large numbers of people in close combat, and what we have found that now with the AR 15, they have a slide stock which you put in. It’s legal, and it makes the gun act fully automatic.”
- Senator Dianne Feinstein, Face the Nation, 27 January 2013
A 6th grader knows better.
“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.”
- Representative Diana DeGette (D-CO), lead sponsor of legislation banning high-capacity magazines
The stupid is strong with this one.
“The congresswoman has been working on a high-capacity assault magazine ban for years and has been deeply involved in the issue; she simply misspoke in referring to ‘magazines’ when she should have referred to ‘clips,’ which cannot be reused because they don’t have a feeding mechanism.”
- Congresswoman DeGette’s spokeswoman, Juliet Johnson, who wanted to make sure that, if you missed the stupidity of her boss the first time, you wouldn’t a second and would get the added ‘feature’ of knowing that her office 'spreads the stupid around' for the 'purposes of fairness'
Er, yes, they can.
These people are just too stupid to be writing laws telling the rest of us what we can do. Go ‘tip-over and capsize’ Guam, idjits.
