    Looks like gun control is proving costly to Colorado.
    As it should.

    Maybe we can offset some of the loss with weed. That's legal here.

    Who needs guns . . . they've got weed now. It makes them happy.

    Glad to see this happing. Maybe if North Colorado manages to split off they can pick up some jobs. Not really expecting this but one can always hope.

    Colorado is a sad example of an alarming trend occurring all across America (guns and in general.) Unlike many states, however, there's still time to salvage CO if the GOP can ever muster the backbone and the courage to do so. It's not yet time to write Colorado off.

    Maybe, but I wrote Denver and Boulder off a long time ago...

    I like the Ozarks but I'm hoping we can set this state on a path of righteousness in future elections. Anyway I live close enough to the Utah state line that I could relocate there without even changing doctors.

    The problem is the anti-gun politicians don't care about firearm companies. Losing tax revenue from them doesn't bother them one bit.

    Make no mistake--tens of millions of dollars are what is at stake. Just weeks ago, FGI announced a $32 million expansion in Arkansas. Who knows how many jobs that will create within the state?

    FGI has 20 properties across 12 different states, and they will focus on states that are friendly to them and their products, as any reputable business would do.
    Hitting them where it hurts. Well done. To those forum members in CO, I really hope it isn't too late for you guys and gals to turn things around.

    I plan on getting involved with helping American candidates here get elected. The Proglodytes must be defeated. I have no money, but I do have some extra time. Unemployment will do that for a fella.

    Best of luck, Poorly. I too only really have time to offer. I've written before and will continue to do so. They don't have to know that I really don't vacation there every year..
