Congresswoman DeGette’s Disarmament Strategy

5228203973_5fed546aa7_zDegetteRep. Diana DeGette sees the recent shootings near Downtown Denver as an opportunity to push her disarmament agenda rather than the tragedy it truly was. Once again she demonstrates her blissful ignorance about firearms.  She uses menacing terms like “military style assault weapons” and “high-capacity” magazines.  Let me set the record straight.  The right to own “military style assault weapons” is already severely infringed (what part of “shall not be infringed” do you not understand Diana?). The purchase of a real “military style assault weapon” requires an extensive background  investigation and paying an exorbitant tax. She’s referring to firearms like the AR15 which is a civilian firearm. The Americanized AK47 is not a “military style assault weapon” either. A real AK47 is an automatic weapon. The Americanized AK47 is not. Furthermore, Diana, a 30 round magazine is a standard capacity magazine. It’s not a “high capacity” magazine.

By using the term “gun safety”, she’s depending  on an uniformed population that’ll permit her to sneak in her disarmament agenda.  I for one know she’s using the frog in the pot of water approach.  Throw a frog in a boiling pot of water and he’ll jump right out. Put him in cool water and turn the heat up slowly and he’s cooked (disarmed) before he realizes it.  I don’t know about the rest of the frogs, but the water is already much too hot for me.

Finally, she staged a sit-in on the House floor to push her agenda to disarm Americans without due process. Depriving people on the “no-fly” list their right to keep and bear arms may sound like a good idea on the surface. Except there is no due process. The government can put anyone on the no-fly list for any reason. Want to disarm a law abiding dissident?  Put him on the no-fly list. Poof! Rights gone.

    I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It is pretty worth enough
    for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the internet will be a
    lot more useful than ever before.
