Diana DeGette’s office errs on ammo clips to defend magazine comment

Democratic Rep. Diana DeGette drew national criticism Wednesday for remarks made at a public forum in which she said banning high-capacity in ammunition magazines would be effective in reducing gun violence because “the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.”

DeGette spokeswoman Juliet Johnson on Wednesday said the senior congresswoman from Denver “misspoke” and then issued another erroneous statement about guns.

On this day in 1961 – Nov. 29 – Enos, a chimpanzee, was launched into space aboard the Project Mercury: Mercury-Atlas 5 Mission.

The name given to “Enos,” the chimp selected to fly the MA-5 mission, in Hebrew means “man”. Enos’s backups were (in order possible call-up) Duane, Jim, Rocky and Ham (the MR-2 veteran). Enos was from Cameroon, Africa, (originally called Chimp # 81), and was purchased by the USAF on April 3, 1960. His flight was preceded by both fellow chimp Ham and astronaut Alan Shepard who had been launched into space but had not orbited the earth.

Was it a missile? The Army doesn’t think so. Was it a spacecraft? North American Aerospace Defense Command didn’t see one. Was it a plane crash? Colorado State Patrol can’t find debris. What was the source of the mysterious contrail reported over central Colorado early Thursday?
The video frame grab above, provided by ABC15 in Phoenix, shows the contrail of a Juno ballistic missile fired from Fort Wingate near Gallup, N.M., in early morning sunlight high above New Mexico.
