California’s Dumbest Senate Democrat Warns ‘Ghost Guns’ Will Shoot All Their Calibers At You

Using the same amount of research that Kevin de Leon put into his presentation warning of the terrible menace of 3D printed ghost guns, I have determined that he is a 9th century explorer who has represented his constituents in the Valle de Los Necios in the National Assembly of People’s Power of Southnortheastern California.

Anti-gun California State Sen. Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles) is being mocked by gun rights advocates after he made a number of inaccurate statements while promoting a bill that would require individuals who manufacturer homemade firearms to undergo background checks.

“This is a ghost gun,” de Leon begins, holding an unloaded rifle in his hands. “This right here has the ability with a .30-caliber clip to disperse with 30 bullets within half a second. Thirty magazine clip in half a second.”

Also it can fry a dozen eggs in under four hours and can hit a fly on the moon in less than four hundred years.

But one important question, will these 3D ghost guns be printed on computers with 100 gigabyte CPUs capable of uploading 400 kilowatts a second?

600x4443

Firstly, there is no such thing as a “30-caliber clip” in the context of which he is speaking. He clearly is referring to a 30-round magazine. An ammunition magazine is different than a “clip,” but the two are often confused by those not familiar with guns. And though it’s obvious, there is also no such thing as a “30 magazine clip.”

Secondly, caliber refers the measurement of the width of a bullet or internal diameter of a gun barrel, not magazine capacity.

Kevin de Leon, a former English as a Second Language teacher and NEA crony, couldn’t be expected to know any of this. He’s only been pushing gun control for the last six years.

How was he supposed to find the time to learn what a caliber is in only six years?

But it’s not like he’s considered the bright future of California Senate Democrats…

California Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg said Tuesday that “it is clear” Sen. Kevin de León will be the next leader of the state Senate.

“I think he will be a great leader. He’s adept at both the policy and the political side,” Steinberg said as he and de León emerged from an afternoon meeting of Senate Democrats, in which the majority party discussed future leadership of the house but did not take a formal vote.

California meet your new English as a Second Language and knowledge as a third priority leader.  He may be really dumb, but at least he’s honest

State Sen. Kevin de Leon defended himself Tuesday against allegations he helped transfer $25,000 to a nonprofit controlled by Sen. Ron Calderon’s brother, Thomas.

De Leon’s name appears in recently released federal documents detailing an FBI investigation of Ron Calderon, who allegedly received bribes from an undercover agent.

While the FBI probe centers on Calderon, the Los Angeles senator is referenced 17 times in the 124-page FBI document. At one point, the documents state de Leon helped transfer $25,000 from a Latino political group in the state Legislature to a nonprofit.

At one point, the affidavit states de Leon helped broker a deal for leadership of the Latino Legislative Caucus, a 25-member group of lawmakers that includes the senator.

Okay so Kevin de Leon is a dishonest idiot who will lead the California State Senate in its war against the calibers of 3D ghost guns.

California now has Mexico’s political structure, but doesn’t have as much oil. I suspect that’s going to be a problem.

  • Flicker

    Clearly a man of high caliber, I mean high capacity. Thirty errors dispersed in under half a second. By the way, 3D bullets should be outlawed too; what does a hunter need with that extra dimension. And printed bullets don’t show up on airport scanners!

    • burtfisher

      No, he is a dum-dum bullet, or maybe just firing blanks. A real bullshooter.

  • Tim N

    Look up the 22nd California Senate district he represents: Downtown LA, East Hollywood….They’re not the best and brightest.
    Unfortunately from what I’ve seen over the years this is hardly a unique California problem. We have our share of loonies to be sure, but electing morons, crooks and dingbats of one form or another, at all levels of government, seems to be a nationwide phenomenon.

    • NAHALKIDES

      It’s a “nationwide” phenomenon in a way, but what do these dysfunctional districts have in common? The people in them are typically minority-majority, poorly educated, uninformed, live in or near government housing projects, receive hefty welfare benefits, and are utterly incompetent as citizens – in other words, they are the base of the Democratic Party.

    • mikeh420

      His “constituents” consist if mostly Mexican gangsters and their supporters. DeLeon wants to prevent innocent citizens from defending themselves against his Homies.

      Muera La Raza.

      • Skepticles

        MuerTa DE la Raza?

  • Bill C.

    I cannot wait to get outta here.

  • darnellecheri

    I like the Ghost Gun in the top picture – “Accurate target shooting without missiles.” That is super hot. As far as de Leon, nothing new here.

  • turk182

    FYI,”caliber” also refers to how many bore diameters in length of a cannon barrel.

    in small arms one caliber is one inch,so a “30 caliber” gun would be bigger than the gun from an Iowa class battleship,almost 2x as big.
    also,firing 30 rounds in HALF A SEC? not gonna happen. NOBODY can pull the trigger 30 times in half a second. Not even a Terminator.

    • DB1954

      FYI, I think the idiot means that the “ghost gun” will be able to fire on fully auto capacity–30 rounds a half second. That aint gonna happen either. Moreover, if you tried to cook straight through 30 rounds with an M16 or any other weapon, you’d find your barrel melting. His claims are absurd on that basis alone.

      • SB11banger

        cook through 30 rounds on an m16, melting eh? youre an idiot. i shot 50-100 rounds full auto in afghanistan and my barrell did not melt…nor did any other large caliber crew served automatic weapon…

        • SB11banger

          see my picture….750-900 rounds per minute of 7.62 rounds…you change the barrels out when they get to bright red and hot bruh.

        • Ktactical

          In the end making a fully auto gun is already illegal. This idiot wants to ban home made legal* semiautomatics, but he holds up that fully auto rifle which is totally not legal for anyone to make especially in California and it’s an sbr (short barreled rifle). That’s like triple illegal. no one can own that(which is why the DOJ confiscated it), but what he wants people to think is that what he’s trying to outlaw is that…

        • Veracious_one

          In Vietnam I ripped through magazines of ammo with no barrel melting….

      • Veracious_one

        The M134 Minigun is a 7.62×51 mm NATO, six-barreled machine gun with a high rate of fire (2,000 to 6,000 rounds per minute).

        • RWFG

          Empty, a M134 weighs 60lbs, with ammo and kit, you’re talking at least 80 to 100lbs …meaning, most liberals couldn’t pick it up.

          • Paul

            LMAO! I love the reply, RWFG! So true!!!

          • SB11banger

            ammo and kit? that thing mounts to a turret…no one could walk with that thing.. unless your talking about the xm214, that jesse ventura’s DBAG’azz was using in the movie predator.

        • Drakken

          It is a wonderful weapon for muslim crowd control. Or so I have heard. ;)

      • RWFG

        He got a modified AR15 confused with a popular children’s toy because these idiot politicians haven’t a clue what they are doing. .

    • mikeh420

      So clueless, almost as much as DeLeon himself.

      FYI: A “caliber” is 1/100 of an inch, so a 30 caliber gun has a barrel that is 30/100 or 3/10 of an inch inside diameter.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caliber

      • Veracious_one

        some people may have confused mm with caliber…a 30mm is a far different animal than a 30 cal…..

    • Brian Kelsey

      It’s not 30 caliber. It’s .30 caliber. That decimal point make all the difference in the world.

  • turk182

    3-D printing of guns is a joke,none of them can stand up for more than a few shots before they blow apart in your hand,their barrels are NOT rifled,so they’re only good for short range.

    • Veracious_one

      a suicidal assassin may only need a couple of well placed shots to take out the selected target….

      • mickey_meador

        Your ‘suicidal assassin’ need not bother with a 3-D printed or ‘ghost gun’ or any other ‘x-ray invisible’ gun. Anyone trained in the black arts knows ANYTHING can be a lethal weapon. There iare no way Big Brother nannies can protect anyone and our Constitutional judges have ruled so. Actually the best citizen (or property of the state as IRS views us) protection would be to drum all these charlatans from public office. Everyone left to their own self defense would restore the nation to what our founding fathers envisioned.

      • RWFG

        You watch too much tv.

    • disqus_iulM4CIA78

      I printed a ar-15 lower that lasted well over 800 rounds… :)

  • UCSPanther

    I love how these idiots come up with absurd claims about the capabilities of firearms and then wonder why people view them as paranoid idiots.

    When the California legislature was banning 50 BMG rifles, the rhetoric they were throwing around made unsure whether they were talking about a rifle, or the railgun from the Quake series…

  • DB1954

    30 rounds in half a second huh? That’s the upfront lie which made further consideration of this man’s claims unnecessary. That’s absurd.

  • Chris Tedone

    All the scary ‘Ghost products’ need to be brought out into the open. The other day, I was tricked into buying a crayon picture of a chicken. a 4 year old sold it to me, said it was a ‘ghost’ chicken. I thought it would be a hearty meal for my family, but as soon as I put it on the grill, it started on fire. Could have burned my whole family’s faces off! After this plastic ‘ghost gun 30 caliber receiver’, what will they think of next? Automatic soap bars? (capable of 7 trillion bubbles per second) Widdled oak wood bazookas?

  • Softly Bob

    I’m a Brit and don’t know one end of a gun from another, but even I know the difference between calibre, and clip (I will even spell calibre the British way, just to show you).
    If you’re going to have a strong opinion on something, at least try and show that you know what you’re talking about.
    Another thing, you’re not supposed to point a gun at anyone, loaded or unloaded, unless you intend to use it. The way he waved that thing around shows that he’s not grown-up enough to be even holding it.

    • Skepticles

      At least he had the Tampon safety string in use!

  • Craige Lowry

    When these idiots find a way to take away all of the guns from all the criminals then they can have mine…

    • tionico

      and we must include all the trough-slopping criminals who have been issued government costumes, laminated or tin badges, and/or spend time hobnobbing about that Marble Zoo in Sacramento and other government strongholds.

      Statistially we are more likely to be wrongly killed by LEO and other government operatives than in a car wreck, hijacked airplane crash, or by a real criminal (except possibly in Chicago, LA, New York, Newark, DC, you know, those places where the hooh hahs in charge have disarmed the general public and won’t go there themselves…….

  • RWFG

    Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, Moore, Feinstein, and Morgan are just as stupid & out-of-touch when it comes to firearms.

    • http://www.pixelgeddon.com/ Shane Stevens

      I don’t think they’re stupid, not most of them anyway. They’re calculating fascist scumbags is what they are, determined to strip every last American of their firearms so they can do the goosestep-twostep across Amerika without resistance.

  • Bee Mw

    Hey! It’s California. You would expect any less???

  • Marlin B. Newburn

    This clown is a shoo-in for a lifetime in public office in California. He’s the prototype, and loved by all residents in his district.

  • SB11banger

    anyone notice the rug hes got on his head?

  • http://caseybrownmyers.blogspot.com/ CB Myers

    What an idiot. So many of the people that are
    against guns have no clue about the subject, but yet they are given
    credibility by the mainstream media. Most people would be embarrassed
    after saying something like this…but I doubt this guy is smart enough
    to realize he should be embarrassed.

    • RWFG

      Well liberals are generally misinformed, but usually they are just stupid, and lazy; not bothering to see the big picture, or know the facts.

      I fired an employee for being liberal (stupid) – It felt great to throw a liberal out on his rear-end. He lost his house, car, and his girl left him.

      Obama’s economic policies worked for him!

      • Kevin Gatton

        A True American Hero lol

      • Dregs Lewis

        You are a complete douchebag.

    • http://www.pixelgeddon.com/ Shane Stevens

      Another way of looking at it is that they intentionally spread disinformation to fearmonger the public into doing what they want. They aren’t targeting intelligent people, afterall; they are targeting the lowest common denominator in society, people who spend most of their time in front of the television being programmed.

    • tionico

      sort of like that female piece of work that nattered on about “the shoulder thing that goes up”, and how that thing” made the rifle fire more bullets faster, thus being more dangerous. And therefor needing to be banned……

  • GaJoe1950

    All your calibers are belong to us.

  • Hard Little Machine

    3600 rounds per minute is absurd. That’s the rate of a 6 barrel minigun.

  • David Wallace

    All your caliber are belong to us!

  • Engineered Reality

    Someone neuter this guy….

  • R.Young

    A very learnerd man with all of the correct information about a specific weapon who all Loyal Subjects of the current Regime should give their utmost attention to what he says just like they do to Senator Fienstein, L O L !

  • Evilbob

    The united states military HAS attacked its own people. It happened in Louisiana after the levis broke. In Violation of US law, active duty military were deployed to patrol the streets. And they were confiscating fire arms from law abiding citizens, using legal registration lists possessed by the government. I Know it happened. I saw it happen because I was there. So dont think for a second that the us government wont fracture your constitutional rights for the sake of “Law and order” when ever they desire to. they have done it before, they will do it again. they own you.
