So Much Misinformation So Little Time To Straighten It Out

Our friend in the ether Bob Belvedere caught this at Drudge:

The Smartest Man In The World™* and America’s Number One Skeet Shooter™* has revealed himself to be a total f-ing idiot once again…

From The Weekly Standard, Daniel Halper reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to the Drudge Report][emphasis mine]:

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.

Sadly, Americans can’t own fully automatic weapons unless they have a lot of money, the blessing of their local law enforcement chief and pay an exorbitant tax to the ATF. Oh, and some states won’t allow possession even with the proper paperwork and tax stamp. It’s been that way since the National Firearms Act of 1934.

Then from Nicki F., we have this sorry excuse of a Congressional Representative from Colorado who makes this ridiculous statement;

Congressleech Diana DeGette – one of the most obnoxiously mouthy dimwits in Congress – from… Colorado (Don’t act so flabbergasted. Between Salazar, Hudak and this daft bint, their collective IQ can be measured in micrograms. 12 of them.) – has opened her mouth about gun control and limits on magazine capacity, and out came…

Asked how a ban on magazines holding more than 15 rounds would be effective in reducing gun violence, DeGette said:

“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.”

Ummmm… wut?

This is a woman pushing federal legislation that will affect the rest of America, and she isn’t aware that magazines can be RELOADED????

Of course, this is the same person who had this to say to one of her constituents at a townhall meeting and it’s on video;

Degette’s response in case you missed it…” Good thing you live in Denver. DPD would be there in minutes.” Then she smiles snarkily and says…” You’d probably be dead anyway.” Don’t you just wish you could reach through the computer screen and slap the crap out of that person regardless of their gender? Stupid people like that don’t deserve to breathe.

Nice, compassionate representation y’all have there in Denver.

Then we have this from The Daley Gator;

A US Navy veteran had his guns confiscated by police following a forced “psychiatric evaluation” in another example of how the Veterans Administration is accelerating a purge of armed ex-servicemembers in accordance with a federal government demonization campaign that has labeled vets domestic terrorists.

Just what we need…This administration is making our Veterans out to be crazy people who need to be disarmed. Civilians are next after Obama Care gets in full swing. If you’ve EVER been prescribed medicine for anxiety or mild depression, the government will be able to use that information to come into your house and confiscate all your guns, for your own good, of course.
