Dem Sponsor Of Gun Bill Thinks Magazines Can't Be Reloaded

DENVER POST: WASHINGTON — Democratic Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) has been the lead sponsor on a federal ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines in two Congresses, saying it’s one of her top priorities. But Tuesday at a Denver Post forum on the gun control debate, the senior congresswoman from Denver appeared to not understand how guns work. Asked how a ban on magazines holding more than 15 rounds would be effective in reducing gun violence, DeGette said:

What she didn’t appear to understand is that a magazine can be reloaded with more bullets. According to the Shooter’s Log, only early on were magazines for AR-15s designed to be disposable, but the military changed that and now magazines are used several times. In handguns, a magazine is designed to be reused hundreds of times.

After her remarks, the audience in the forum at The Denver Post building chuckled.
