    Colorado Gov Vetos NICS bypass

    The Governor has vetoed the bill that would allow CCW holders to bypass the NICS check for purchases. The bill managed to get through a Democratic-controlled state legislature, but was killed by the anti-gun governor.

    Fellow CO citizens, please vote on the poll linked below in the Denver Post. Let the Gov know that he's underestimated the pro-2A population. At the moment, the anti-gun crowd is ahead by 2 percentage points (50 agree with Gov, 48 disagree).

    OK, to play the devil's advocate, what is wrong with them running the check when a permit holder purchases a gun? As a legitimate permit holder you are going to pass, the check is instant (?) and it is a relatively unobtrusive way to keep guns from people that may be lying and trying to get around purchase laws. Like any other ID card a permit card can be forged.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    I'm just trying to figure out why the Navy Investigators have to get involved.
