Good grief.

This is a quote from what passes for leadership in Colorado.

CO State Rep. Diana DeGette (D) "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." (April 2, 2013, Denver Post forum)

:o What must it be like to have such a low understanding of what occurs on our planet?

She said 2 very stupid things in the same meeting, both of which should disqualify her from office or prime candidate for tar and feathering. The other was;

“My question is: What about me?†the Denver citizen asked Rep. DeGette, arguing against limiting magazine capacity. “There may not be one bad guy that comes into my house… I have to change magazines? I am a serious disadvantage.â€

“What about me?†he repeated.

After arrogantly smirking at his question, DeGette replied: “The good news for you, you live in Denver. The [Denver Police Department] would be there within minutes.â€

“You’d probably be dead anyway if they had that kind of firepower,†she added.

Why would America put up with a elected official this f#&*ing dumb!

Mr. Rolland Harrison

Dear Mr. Harrison:

Thank you for taking the time to write to me. I really wish I could personally respond to everyone, but we are receiving literally thousands of emails and phone calls from folks like you. They are running 25 to 1 in support of my efforts to preserve and restore the original intent of the Second Amendment. If you want instant inside updates from the Capitol you may sign up at https://stockman.house.gov/contact/newsletter.

The fact is gun bans and anti-gun laws have always lead to one thing – more gun violence.

We owe it to innocent people to make this country as safe as possible. Sadly, in President Obama’s announcement every tragedy he mentioned was either in a state that aggressively restricts the right to keep and bear arms or was in a location that banned guns completely.

The White House announced they will use Executive Orders to infringe upon the God-given right to keep and bear arms protected by the Second Amendment from government intrusion.

Among the Executive Orders issued are tracking of your firearms, which creates a de facto national gun registry, and a White House demand for laws regulating the private transfer of firearms.

In other words, if you give your son his first hunting rifle, you may face a prison sentence if you fail to get approval from the government.

Those proposals, along with others floated by the White House as presidential decrees, are cutting attacks on your right as a peaceable person to keep and bear arms for your defense. The ability to defend one from aggressors is a basic human right.

My staff is reviewing the Executive Orders. Should President Obama issue Orders infringing upon your basic human right, I am prepared to fight back with peaceable legislative force.

>> I will lead the fight to defeat the President’s dangerous legislative proposals.

>> I will seek legislation overturning the Orders.

>> I will seek legislation barring funds to enforce the Orders.

>> I will seek legislation to cut White House funding should the President issue and enforce such Orders.

>> I will support legal efforts to overturn the Orders in court.

I ask you to contact your representatives in the House and Senate at House.gov and Senate.gov and politely urge them to support efforts to overturn or defund any proposed executive actions and to defeat the President’s dangerous legislative proposals.

Now, I would hope those measures are enough to either deter President Obama or thwart his efforts.

However, if they do not or are unsuccessful I will consider speaking with my colleagues and filing articles of impeachment.

Impeachment is not something to be taken lightly. It is a grave and serious undertaking that should only be initiated in a sober and serious manner. It should be reserved only for most egregious of trespasses by the President.

I would consider using Executive Orders to engage in attacks on a constitutionally-protected right and violating his sworn oath of office to be such a trespass. The President cannot issue executive orders depriving the people of full access to an enumerated constitutional right.

I do not think it will come to that. The President is not an absolute ruler, and his actions and orders can be checked and balanced by the Congress and the courts – if the Congress is willing.

That is why I ask you to please contact your elected representatives at House.gov and Senate.gov and politely urge them to support legislative efforts to overturn and defund the president’s Orders, and to defeat his legislative proposals.

The right to keep and bear arms is a basic human right that has kept us free for over two centuries. With a vigilant citizenry eager to contact their elected officials and make their voice heard, it will continue to be that way.

In the meantime, I encourage you to sign up for my free newsletter. It will give you instant inside updates from the Capitol. You may sign up at https://stockman.house.gov/contact/newsletter.



Your Member of Congress

In another Diana-iszum it was stated on one of our local radio talk shows that on Face the Nation, she stated that when a adjustable stock is collapsed, the weapon becomes full auto!  But I think the caller was mistaken and that Dianne-izum belongs to Fienstien!

guess my S&W is defective...
