I am not being facetiousness or even halfway snarky.
Check the video and the transcript. Notice that this is not an off-the-cuff remark but a prepared written statement.
“The time has come, America, to step up and ban these weapons. The other very important part of this bill is to ban large capacity ammunition feeding devices, those that hold more than 10 rounds. We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds. And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines. Limiting magazine capacity is critical because it is when a criminal, a drug dealer, a deranged individual has to pause to change magazines and reload that the police or brave bystanders have the opportunity to take that individual down.”
And then we have her comments about PTSD (starting at 2:36):
“The problem with expanding this is that, you know, with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it’s not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this.”
I am sorry, but this is not a person in proper control of her faculties. It may be a temporary thing brought by the stress of finding her Gun Control bills crash and burn when she probably thought they could not be but approved instantly after Sandy Hook. She has been at this basically since she was elected to the Senate in 1992 and to see that the legislation that defined you is rendered irrelevant has to take a toll.
I am not going o be a hypocrite and shed crocodile tears for her but there is sadness to see somebody possibly starting to dip her toes into maelstrom of madness.
