We've all been subjected to a good a deal of deep, dynamic, unalloyed ignorance in the current debate.
We're used to it, of course. Every Second Amendment rights defender is continually explaining facts at a kindergarten level. "And the bullet goes round and round and it comes out here..."
Anyone who hasn't isn't in the game.
Occasionally, however, despair is understandable. Somewhere in Colorado, adult Americans elected Diana to public office.
Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO): "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."
Setting aside the basic illiteracy of "...these are ammunition," has this woman actually sat through the lengthy debate in America's highest councils and come away assured that firearms magazines are as reusable as Charmin?
When dumb goes that deep, I doubt the synapses can be repaired. Stitch her lips shut. Roll her west from Wolf Creek Pass. Just to see if she makes it all the way to Pagosa Springs.
