The Death of My Friend, Colorado
Wednesday morning, Governor Hickelooper is likely to sign a series of draconian bills that attack on your Second Amendment rights. These bills represent a large part of the wish list of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who, along with the Obama Administration, worked tirelessly to push through the Colorado legislature.
When: 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, March 20, 2013
Where: West Foyer, State Capitol
Who: Governor Hickenlooper (D); Senators Mary Hodge (D-25), Rollie Heath (D-18) and Morgan Carroll (D-29); and Representatives Rhonda Fields (D-42), Beth McCann (D-08) and Lois Court (D-06).
RIP, Colorado. We all endeavored to save you, and worked feverishly to keep the jackals at bay, but alas, the lure of dirty money and promises of the DNC in the future allowed your leaders to sell you out.
2014 can't come early enough, sadly.
To all of you that answered my pleas, and wrote, called, e-mailed, cussed, discussed and otherwise helped:

Time to leave Colorado to themselves. I wish them luck. It's never good when a whole state falls.

I did all I could as a fellow gun owner and patriot. I am sorry now I have to find another location for my future hunts. I called Palmer Outfitters in Southeast CO and told him why I am now using another outfitter. I will continue to support you guys in anyways and keep us up to date.

Sorry about this, Rock. I hope this can be undone.
I wonder what is happening to our country. We look for phantoms to blame for our ills and to take responsibility for the acts of evil men and women. Every day we grow more dependent on the government and cede to them our rights. We look to others to protect us. We look to others to help us.
I fear that soon what we understand to be true freedom will be so far removed from those having never experienced it that they will never know what they have lost.

A truly sad, sad state of Affairs. I hope that the rest of the voters in Colorado outside of the Denver metro area remember this come 2014, and esp. remember "Mr. Rape whistle"..........

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

- I hope people don't leave. I hope they stay and vote in the next election to make their voice heard. Leaving helps only you, it doesn't help the fight to protect the 2nd Amendment. It seems like a lot of Progressives seem to ruin their state and then move to the next nicest state.

Rock now is not time to sound the death knell. You have an entire state worth of Sheriffs depts and deputies standing up and upholding the constitution as they swore to. In open defiance to tyrants in your state. Now isnt the time to leave in mass or give up and leave these patriots to face the music alone.
If your LE is willing to refuse to enforce this illegal grab then embrace that, stand with it. If LE wont enforce and public wont comply. what will the little imps do??? Other than shriek and kick and scream and then back down.
God Bless. Give em hell brother.

I have to admit I have the same fear. I hope and pray we are mistaken. Only time will tell.

We only lose when we don't hold dear the freedom that we have.

My motorcycle trip this summer had Colorado as a destination. We'll see how our plans turn out, we don't want to hurt the business owners but....
To the people of Colorado...The elected officials who supported this nonsense need to go.

It's sad to see my home state taking such measures in the wrong direction. From here on out when asked where was I born it'll be, "the old Denver Colorado".

The downhill slide seemed to start when they legalized pot. I guess the wrong people have been smoking it.
I'm pessimistic that the country, as a whole, won't be able to recover from all this "progressive" BS. As long as they keep promising free stuff, there will be suckers to take the bait and vote them into office. I'd say were already at that point. This stuff is spreading state to state and I don't see how we can stop it. I don't think we're at the end of the world yet, but we can see it from here.
