Oh look, more stupid people

A congresswoman in Colorado has made a complete ass of herself by sponsoring a bill to ban a gun part, despite not even knowing what it is or how it's used:

“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,” 

A few questions - how does someone this stupid get elected (ok, that one's pretty rhetorical), why, if anti-gun activists want to be taken seriously, do they allow the biggest idiots to sponsor their bills instead of trying to work with people who have actually been in the same room as a gun before?  Or is the real issue that the average anti-gun activist is as stupid as this woman?

  • I don't get why anti-gun people let idiots like her talk. I know not all of them are complete morons but they don't seem to have a problem with their representatives looking like one.

  • She is usually more with it than that. Evidently she didn't take the time to read up on what her staffers researched.
    She was my rep for a while, until we moved out of the city.

  • i hate the idiots who are anti-gun and have no clue about anything that has to deal with guns as much as i hate the idiots who are so pro-gun they are trying to make silencers mandatory so gun owners wont hurt their hearing or the guys that got upset that ppl willingly gave their unwanted guns to the police to burn. but then those last 2 examples arent elected members of the govt.

    its getting to the point where nothing a politician says is really all that shocking anymore...its more shocking when one says something smart & well thought out.
