Debbie Wasserman Schultz wants to ban gun accessory that doesn’t exist

While appearing on CNN Thursday, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., said she wants to ban a gun accessory that doesn’t exist, the Daily Caller reported.

She started by saying that “military-style weapons” — an apparent reference to the AR-15 — should only be available to the military and not civilians, and then pivoted to talk about magazines, Amber Athey said.

Congress, she said, should be “making sure that we don’t have high-capacity, rapid-fire magazines that allow mass killing and whose primary purpose is to achieve that.”

“That’s gonna stop this problem,” she claimed.

Of course, there’s no such thing as a “rapid-fire magazine,” but facts don’t seem to matter to the anti-gun left.

Twitter mercilessly mocked Wasserman Schultz for her crazy claim.

Good question.  As we reported earlier, a retired general actually referred to something called “full semi-automatic” rate of fire…

No, they don’t know anything about these weapons, but they sure do want to ban them…

Good point.

Several Twitter users wanted to know if CNN corrected her:

Twitchy noted:

It’d be one thing if this were just Debbie Wasserman Schultz babbling incoherently to herself. But CNN’s giving her a platform to spread her B.S. And there are people out there who will actually believe it.

Sad, but true.

Indeed…  But this is what we have making laws today.
