I disagree with her but she is not idiotic. Part of her message states
The legislation that I will be introducing will prohibit the transfer, importation, or possession of high capacity
magazines manufactured after the bill is enacted. Many of these devices exist currently and it would be
impractical and unwise to attempt to ban their possession – criminalizing individuals who purchased the device
legally. Instead, the bill will prohibit the transfer of those devices currently in existence. This allows
individuals who currently own the devices to legally retain possession but works to prevent the spread of the
devices by making it illegal to transfer them to another individual.
That's very smart on her part. She is not going all out and trying to ban guns, just slowly swinging the pendulum in the direction she wants. It greatly improves her chances of success. Not many will put up a big fight over what will seem to most Americans as at most a minor inconvenience for target shooters.
