What We Have Here... a failure to understand anything.  The woman in the video below is a member of the United States Congress, and she is proud to sponsor legislation that makes her feel good, even if she doesn't understand it.

A member of the audience asked what good a ban on high-capacity magazines would be when there are already millions of such magazines in circulation, and they would not be made illegal by the law.

I'll bet you could have asked her what to do for existing magazine subscriptions...and she would say that they'll just expire, and not be renewed.

Later (I can't find the video) a homeowner from Denver asked a question regarding what to do if he was being attacked in his home, and he had to defend himself, why there would be a law that would require him to have a magazine with limited capacity.  Her answer was that Denver PD would respond...but that he would "probably be dead anyway."

A spokeswoman for the Representative stated that she mis-spoke, that she was referring to "clips." apparently the spokeswoman doesn't understand it either.

We have to ban single-use disposable magazines! For the children!

It's difficult to fathom how grown adults can be so stupid and can behave so irresponsibly. Yes I know that it's Congress. It's a new low even for Congress. Brought to you by the same group of legislators who were concerned that the Island of Guam would capsize.
