California congresswoman: “Multi-automatic round weapons are easily available,” you know

posted at 6:41 pm on December 4, 2015 by Matt Vespa

Via the Daily Caller comes a new word from gun control liberals that should be added to their growing dictionary of terms that do not exist. Yesterday, California Democratic Rep. Loretta Sanchez warned about something called “multi-automatic weapons” flowing into the state:

 

Appearing on MSNBC Live with Tamron Hall on Thursday, Sanchez made up a term to describe a gun while blasting congressional inaction.

“The reality is that Congress has been trying to get up some of these issues [relating to mental health] for the last five years, and we haven’t been able to,” she said

We let the assault weapons ban, which was led by our senator Dianne Feinstein, we let that lapse. So you know, multiautomatic round weapons are easily available, even though not in California, but they can cross the state line, as you know,” Sanchez insisted.

Sanchez was a professional at naming everything on the gun control wish list–like waiting periods and closing the (phantom) gun show loophole­. Regardless, this isn’t the first time a liberal just made up words when talking about gun control. In January of 2014, California State Sen. Kevin de Leon infamously warned the public about ghost guns that “has the ability with a .30 caliber clip to disperse with 30 bullets within a half a second. Thirty magazine clip in half a second.” Yes, mockery ensued. Last August, CNN’s Don Lemon didn’t know the difference between semi-automatic and automatic.


 

If liberals want to brush up on their firearm lexicon, the National Rifle Association is just one phone call away.

Listen, morons, stop poking fun at Rep. Sanchez. You know full well that a multi-automatic round weapon is any derringer with a high magazine clip and shoulder thing that goes up. The black ones are orders of magnitude more lethal. Write to Ms. Sanchez and encourage her to author a bill that allows civilians to only possess mini-guns.

You mean M134s? … SOLD! … where do I get one?

I listened to Mark Levin struggle with understanding ‘semi-automatic’ this week on his radio show.
Do it’s not just Cali Dems who don’t have the expertise and terminology the gun fans demand for a conversation to take place.
Maybe only auto mechanics should get to discuss highway speed limits.

Also, where do I get me one of these “multi-automatic round weapons” she’s talkin’ about?
.
And why do I hafta’ hear about these new, fantastic weapons (which I hear-tell are “easily available”) from her, of all people?

Nooo . . . maybe ‘anti-private-ownership of firearms’ liberals should know more about a firearm, than “it can hurt (kill) someone !”

There isn’t anything to understand.

Semi-auto: One pull fires one round.

Full-auto: One pull fires all rounds.

It’s simply ridiculous that people who are so rabid to ban guns won’t take five minutes to learn basic definitions.

“We must ban multi-automatic clip guns with 30 magazines that shoot semi-automatic”!!!!

– any democrat

verbaluce – Right, because someone might have one of those eight-wheeled multi-automatic thirty speed stick shift jobs that does three zillion miles an hour.

The multi-automatic round Sanchez carries needs new C batteries.

My point is that Mark Levin would never get any of this snark for not passing some gun quiz. And being clear on the difference between semi and auto would not even come close to saving anyone from the eye-rolls of the gun fanboys crowd.
This thread is destined for some bonafides proving.
(See listens2glen’s “M134…hey I know machine gun models!” for a taste.)
Yawn.

Is this the part where you or someone argues that a few M134s mounted on the SUV in the Cali shooting wouldn’t have made a difference.
Because we usually end up with the “a shotgun would kill more people in this situation thanan AR-15…really!”

I listened to one sycophant try ever so gently and deferentially to explain bolt action.
So no…he wouldn’t get ‘roasted’.
Let’s not forget, it’s not guns…it’s politics.
It’s not terrorism concerns and it’s not the safety of citizens…it’s Obama.
It’s not mental health issues…it’s Liberalism.

Without a transcript, I’ll go with you haven’t a clue what the difference is and completely misunderstood the conversation.

Not sure how you get a transcript –
but here’s someone commenting on it in freerepublic

Holy cow Mark is clueless about guns. Caller explains the difference between semi-automatic and fully auto and Mark argues that one bullet per trigger pull is not semi. Caller starts to explain bolt-action versus semi-auto and Mark hangs up on him and says a Colt .45 is not semi-automatic. Good grief.

If Levin was talking about the Colt .45 revolver then he’s correct. It’s not semi-auto.

Based on the Democrat *spit* talking points, I guess that you can just drive on down to your local gun show. Or order one right off the internet.

While you’re at it, L2G, you might want to pick up a couple hundred thousand rounds of 7.62x51mm NATO.

justltl on December 5, 2015 at 10:15 AM

I’m totally with you guys on how uniformed these people are. It makes you shake your head at the ignorance.

This is also exactly the same reaction I have when everyone starts piling on the global warning denial :)

verbaluce on December 5, 2015 at 9:36 AM

One round per trigger pull can be from a semi-auto. It can also be from a double-action revolver.

A Colt .45 is single-action revolver, think cowboys & injuns. A 1911 is semi-auto .45 ACP.

I am going to go yell at clouds now.

You forgot a word:

Multi automatic round weapons.

Deadlier than multi automatic square weapons, much deadlier.

Not to mention the “multi automatic triangular weapons” or the “multi automatic out-of-round weapons” or the “multi automatic lopsided weapons”. Woah and don’t forget teh “multi automatic pentagonal weapons”. Yipes, they are real killers

soghornetgunner on December 5, 2015 at 11:49 AM

Yes, she’s a moron. But I was on live TV once, and it’s easy to say something ridiculous that’s not exactly what’s intended. We know what she meant, even if what she meant was, in fact, incorrect.

segesta on December 5, 2015 at 12:19 PM

I bought one of those from a dealer of airborne space lasers at a gunshow. I asked to see the gunshow loophole and they said it was between the refreshments and the restrooms. Once you get through the loophole it was pretty plain sailing – he asked me for my license, so we had a good laugh about that! I couldn’t be more pleased with my multi triple preloading rocket launcher drone, which I only use with a license in the official duck hunting season, of course.

I don’t think Sanchez was talking about me, just irresponsible people who don’t pay taxes./

You just can’t help yourself can you?

The need to hypocritically point out what you believe to be comparative so as to invent a level playing field just burns within you.

Mark Levin is a talk show host. He was talking, maybe about gun control, maybe about idiot leftists, I don’t know. But he was NOT proposing any sort of legislation that he has any power or authority to push through.

Ms. Sanchez was pretending to be expert on gun control issues in order to push for legislation that she has the power and authority to push through with, whether or not successfully.

Do you really not see a difference?

Never mind all that nonsense. When are we going to do something about controlling phased plasma rifles in the 40-watt range? The Terminators will be here and we’re just sitting ducks!
