Update: Jackass Joe voted Monday to postpone indefinitely the bill to repeal the ban on standard-size firearm magazines. That’s super-insider Colorado lingo for: Salazar popped a round into the bill.
We have popcorn, nachos, and hot wings at the ready today for our favorite spectator sport, watching Rep. Joe Salazar (D-Rape Whistle) make a jackass of himself.
Today’s binge viewing is the House State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee hearing at 1:30 p.m. on a bill to repeal the ban on selling firearm magazines.
Salazar is vice chairman of the committee so he will be up front and center leading the effort to defeat the repeal with his lame-brained style we have grown accustomed to mocking.
It will be tough for Salazar to beat the world record – which he set — for most asinine comment ever made in regards to guns.
Tell us again, Joe, why is it exactly that women should not carry guns to protect themselves from being sexually assaulted?
“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles,” Salazar said two yeas ago. “Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop a round at somebody.”
There it is ladies and gentlemen! Idiotic gold! It was that gafftastic reasoning that killed this particular gun control effort regarding concealed carry.
We tried to do some research to get the statistics on how many rapes have occurred near call boxes, or were prevented using a whistle, or happened in a safe zone where law-abiding rapists fear to tread, but Google kept referring us to Salazar’s whack comments that made him the national poster boy for absurdity.
During today’s debate, Rep. Steven Humphrey, R-Severance will introduce his bill to repeal the ban on standard-capacity magazines for firearms. According to the Colorado Legislative Council, there has been only one conviction since the useless law took effect last year.
We expect Salazar’s war on women will continue and that he will vote against the repeal, citing his dim-witted belief that females would “pop out that gun and you pop … pop a round at somebody” just because they “feel” like they might be raped.
Or perhaps he will suggest a new method of self-defense to offset that pesky 2nd Amendment like, don’t leave the house without your husband’s permission, or, don’t walk down the street without a male member of the family to accompany you, and for goodness sakes, wear a burka.
