Congresswoman Diana DeGette draw criticism for high-capacity magazine mix-up

Gun control advocate and Democratic Congresswoman Diana DeGette is being ridiculed for saying this about high-capacity magazines:

"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," DeGette said to The Denver Post.

Only problem: magazines can be reloaded.

The congresswoman's office then released a statement saying DeGette:

"Simply misspoke in referring to 'magazines' when she should have referred to 'clips,' which cannot be reused because they don't have a feeding mechanism."

But, actually clips in most guns can be reused as well.
The NRA jumped on DeGette, saying: "Two words – pretty stupid."

How much do DeGette's remarks hurt the gun control cause?

U.S. law enforcement officials under attack

The execution style killing of a West Virginia sheriff on Wednesday is just the latest in a series of violent attacks against law men across the country.

In the past two months alone, we have seen two prosecutors gunned down in Texas, a prison chief murdered in Colorado, and now a West Virginia sheriff has been killed as he sat in his SUV.

What's driving this unusual spike in murder of law enforcement?
