BREAKING Colorado Approves “High Cap” Mag Ban Bill

Screen-Shot-2013-02-16-at-3.26.01-AM

“After an epic debate, Colorado Democrats advanced stricter gun-control measures Friday, ensuring that the state will be held up as an example in a national fight over tougher firearm laws,” denverpost.com reports. Late last night, the Colorado House passed HB 1224 (limiting magazine capacity to 15 rounds) and three other bills (after the jump) by voice vote. After a roll call on Monday, the package will sail through the Democratically-controlled Senate and land on Governor Hicklooper’s desk for signature. The bills passed with Tailgunner Joe’s help. “Vice President Joe Biden [on vacation in the Rock Mountain State] called four House Democrats to get their take on the debate and to note Colorado’s importance in a national discussion on gun control.” Magazine manufacturer Magpul is now certain to up-stakes and take 700 jobs with them. Also passed . . .

House Bill 1226
Sponsor:Rep. Claire Levy, D-Boulder
What it would do:Outlaw concealed-weapon permit holders to pack heat in college campus buildings
Status:Received initial approval

Mistake in gun bill could defeat the effort

  • polmutant

    shame on Colorado and it’s constituants. may they suffer for their irresponsible behavior.

    • ebowers3

      The entire country is suffering because of the non-thinking illiterates that voted for Obama. Elections have consequences. American violence is brought about by Liberals who have no morality and are in the process of destorying the core values that made this country great.

      • polmutant

        welcome to USSA. land of depraved home of the enslaved.

        • fearlesskris

          Very depraved – not one care here about the slaughter of innocents by gun death. And judging by the people who post here? They are most certainly enslaved to the gun industry who are raping the country to the tune of an obscene amount of money…you folks are so deep in the pockets of the manufacturers and NRA you can’t even see daylight any longer. But don’t be afraid – the majority of the country hasn’t forgotten about you and we are coming to your rescue. Quit being so frightened and paranoid.

    Hey…MAGPUL….Plenty of unemployed skilled workers up here in Maine!!!!

    • OldDocBen

      Yeah, but not exactly a gun friendly state. Sorry, Maine but there are too many American states that offer more freedom; and tax breaks to boot!

  • foxxybey

    Colorado has been taken over by the nazi left, so no shock there and of course another gun free zone for those who have concealled carry? They now become the targets of the evil people who steal guns and kill people, moving to Texas, after 70 years this state now sucks.

    • James Maxwell

      As anyone who is from Colorado, their state has been invaded by such loones as John Denver
      and other Caliphone liberals wackos.

      • foxxybey

        This poor state hasn’t had a good representative in state or national, a bunch of left wing nut jobs who are destroying Colorado. They want controlled burns and each year they have a wild fire that have caused homes to be lost and in some cases life, instead of selling a lic for people to cut down these beedle infested tree’s for fire wood, creating jobs and more tax payers, that makes to much sense so they would rather spend money to get their way and spend our money and cause whole scale fires in our state. A sad, nazi government in and out of state.

        • John The Baptist

          foxxybey, if and only if ,the most of the coloradoians want to have carry, then carry. And if the officials won’t give you an OK to cut down the infested trees then cut them down and send them to them,c.o.d.

          • foxxybey

            John The Baptist, like your name, well choosen. I will carry and don’t care about any unlawful law they pass. Your tree thing is a good idea also but, I’ll just let the burn every down and laugh about how stupid they are, they probably wouldn’t pay the cod but would raise taxes to pay for it all. LOL, God Bless Friend:

  • Watchdogman

    Magpul Idaho is gun mfg/accessories friendly with proper laws in place. So come here and find a warm welcome. the hunting and fishing and sight-seeing are simply great

  • Doc

    Hey Magpul! Come on down to Texas. Where you will be appreciated and welcome.

  • gas pump junkie

    Colorado going the way of California………..run by liberals and running off businesses and the jobs with them………..out of state hunters will boycot in favor of other western states

  • mrsgunnut10

    I would never have thought that A Gun Packing State like Colorado would go under and kiss Obamass’s Butt or even let O’Biden get an Anti-Gun word in between rounds. Sorry Colorado populace, I thought you were smarter than this.

    • fearlesskris

      Perhaps they were – until their children were slaughtered when some guy walking into a family movie opened fire. You really mean to tell me that this bill – which prohibits concealed carry on A COLLEGE CAMPUS – will bring your world crashing to a halt? Did you even read the bill? Or just the headline? I don’t know about you Mrs., but I for one am tired of seeing our children massacred. You are entitled to your own opinion on that one, but it’s you and your kind who are doing the slaughtering – white gun owners and their kids. None of them is a criminal – at least not until they step up and pull the trigger. And then it’s too late. Tell it to the Aurora families – tell it to the parents in Newton. I dare you.

      • mtmountainman

        You want to stop the slaughter–then stop Liberals. The Liberal agenda pushes no ethics, no morality, no integrity, no personal responsibility for anything. These things are at the root of the problem. You also need to know that all the recent shooters – going clear back to Columbine were Liberals, registered Democrats or from Democratic families. Point made.

      • DWeb

        And you really believe this sort of legislation will stop the lunatics from killing helpless people. Not for a nano-second. This kind of crap will only make massacres more often with higher body counts. By the way, idiot. Look into deaths by people using guns. Notice that most gun deaths are gang related and by blacks–typically on blacks. Chicago, Atlanta, Durham NC, LA, NY, you name the city, you the brain God gave you and do the research so you don’t make a fool of yourself again. This bill is the exact opposite if what should happen. Guns should be allowed everywhere that law abiding people can be. Virginia began allowing guns where alcohol is served over two years ago. Anti gun righters said there would be more shootings in bars and where alcohol is served, but low and behold, bar/restaurant/alcohol related shooting went DOWN. Go figure. Give law abiding responsible gun owners the right to carry and crime goes down. No frontier, OK Corral type shootouts.

        The only ones massacring people are NUTS. Crazy people. Mostly liberals too. You want to stop that…be locked and loaded yourself.

        • Chained

          Yeah the massacres from Columbine on up all have been perpetrated by people brought up in a liberal democrap home and most of those have had a mental disease being treated with some kind of psychotropic drug with side effects causing severe depression and rage. Children are being put in front of a TV or violent video game to be babysat and get ADD then when they can’t cope with everyday life at school are given Ritalin, Zanax, Praxil or some other mind numbing drug and wham a violent psychopath is born.

        • gail2012

          Well said. Give a gun to all law abiding citizens and the will be no more crime. Switzerland everyone carries a gun. It’s the law. They have no crime NONE! If Columbine or Sandyhook if the teachers were armed this would not have happened.The teachers should wear shoulder holsters. We trust teachers with our children 8 hrs a day 5 days a week. We can! T trust them armed.

      • James Maxwell

        This has to be a mindless troll from someother place than colorado. Guns don’t kill
        people, only criminal and the deranged do that or commit such a criminal act. If
        peope had been armed at the theater there would not have been nearely as many
        shot. Someone would have taken out the miscreant quickly and effective saving lives.
        But you cannot expect some coward who is afraid of their own shadow to comprehend
        this fact. If teachers had been armed in Newton or in the theater in Auroro, or at Ft
        Sam or many other place there would have been less criminal activity. When
        criminals or crazies attack they pick the most defensless rather than put themselves
        in harms way. When they are confronted by an armed response or know they
        will meet armed resistance they find a more friendly enviroment to commit their
        crimes.

      • steve

        SORRY TO BE THE ONE TO TELL YOU FEARLESS BUT IF YOU GO BACK AND LOOK AT ALL OF THE MASS SHOOTINGS THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE THEIR PARENTS ARE ALL DEMOCRATS(PROGRESSIVES)AND THE PARENTS ARE THE ONES WHO OWNED THE GUNS THAT WHERE NOT SECURED AWAY FROM KNOWN MENTALLY ILL CHILDREN IN THEIR HOMES THAT STOLE THE WEAPONS BECAUSE INCOMPETENT PARENTS LEFT THEM AVAILABLE TO THOSEMENTALLY ILL CHILDREN WHO COMMITTED THESE HAINESS CRIMES BECAUSE THEIR PARENTS DIDNT LOVE THEM ENOUGH TO BUY GUN SAFES LIKE CONSERVATIVE PARENTS DO AND KEEP THEIR GUNS LOCKED UP SO MENTALLY ILL PROGRESSIVES CAN NOT GET THEM AND KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE!DEMOCRTAS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERY MURDER INCLUIDING DORNER IN LA GUESS WHAT BAN DEMOCRATS FROM OWNING GUNS AND THERE WILL NOT BE ANY MORE KILLINGS!

        • fearlesskris

          Wow, turn it DOWN steve! I am enjoying the paranoid conspiracy theory rants going on here, glad to give you all something to get excited about. Have a feeling thoughtful people don’t wander in here very often. Democrats and progressives, well, we won’t apologize for kicking your butts in the elections. You have been played and lied to by the NRA and the gun manufacturers. It is all about your money – nothing else. There’s no government plot, there is no reason to buy tens of thousands of dollars worth of weaponry for your own personal arsenal. You are just filling the pockets of the already obscenely wealthy and panting at their side like lap dogs. And you know one fact – everyone knows this: In homes with guns the likelihood that you will die by your own gun, either suicide or homicide, is significantly greater than in non gun homes. 680 “accidental” gun deaths per year (over half under the age of 25). 46 gun suicides per day – PER DAY. 33 per day were killed in a gun homicide – and it breaks down into these age groups: of the 33, one is a child under 14, 5 were teenagers (15 – 19 y.o.), 7 were young adults (20-24). This in households with guns, either locked in safes or not. It’s so bad that it is considered a health risk in children and the American Pediatric Society recommends REMOVING guns – not locking them up – removing them from the household. If you care about lives, if you care about the youth in our country, you’ll take a strong stand against gun ownership in private households. But you don’t care.

          • Berzrkr50

            Now share with us the number of alcohol and/or automobile related deaths. If you look at those numbers your jaw will drop. So what should we do? Outlaw cars/alcohol? Your argument doesn’t hold water…

          • fearlesskris

            Oh my, we’re back to the “cars” or “phones” or “alcohol” related deaths. Cars are purposed with transportation – people and things from one place to another. No, we should not outlaw cars. There’s a reason we call them accidents. It is illegal to drink and drive and there are strict legal remedies for those who do so. As a matter of fact, as time goes on, we make those laws stricter, often in the face of opposition. This is a non-argument because they are not equal – not even near equal – in their purpose. Guns and ammo have one purpose. That is to kill. They have no other use, that is what they are made for and why they exist – to kill. Do we need to go further? Knives are purposed with butchering meat, chopping up a nice meal, spreading butter. No we shouldn’t ban knives. Baseball bats are purposed with hitting a ball and making a sound that people look forward to every spring. No, we should not ban baseball bats. Guns kill. We should restrict access to those who’s job it is to protect us – police (state, local), military (air force, marines, navy, army, special forces, coast guard, national guard), Secret Service, FBI, CIA, trained security for public places…that’s quite a long and diverse list of people and unlike many of you, I don’t believe they are all in “cahoots” with each other to harm you in some way. See a doctor, quit being so afraid and paranoid. There’s help for this.

          • John The Baptist

            Hay, fearlesskris. It sounds like you are one of those commies, are you? If you would like to know what I think ( DON’T SAY ANYTHING) I’m goimg to tell u anyways. If you were to heart any of my family, Iwould hunt you down, string you up and peel the hid off of you and let you hang there for the animals to feast on.

          • fearlesskris

            Hahaha, John “the Baptist” (yes, definitely, reference Christianity with this post in particular – but know this: God loves those who can spell for themselves), well you can whack off to whatever dream you like but truth is you are a coward and a troll. I “heart” most families…love them. Love them and care about them. So when a whole bunch of them get hurt by guys with legal guns who massacre adults and children alike, well, I’d love to own a flamethrower and get rid of all the guns! However, since I don’t get to have my way above and beyond the rights of others, I don’t get to have my very own flamethrower. Maybe someday I’ll get to have my own, if the frightened, paranoid, puppets of the gun manufacturers have their way with you. And they are. Having their way with you. They bent you right over and told you to drop trouser – and you did it without even a word of protest. And sure, I’ll be a commie or whatever – for talking about the real purpose of cars? Sure, why not, it’s as good as any other reason. At least I’m not bent over getting boo-fooed by gun manufacturers….and their version of the reach around is to dig around deep in your pockets while they got ya bent.

          • Keenan Lee

            Aren’t your statistics one-sided? Where are the stats on the murders with other devices such as knives, baseball bats, screwdrivers, ropes, and other objects? Where are the stats on how many people die in automobile accidents, DUI’s, suicides by automobile, suicides or OD from drugs? A gun is a tool. If someone wants to commit suicide they will get it done by any means whether it be gun, vehicle, drugs, building jump, or electrocution. My point is that don’t eliminate a tool that is helpful to others because some people misuse it. If that were the case, automobiles would be the first to go. Count how many people die in auto tragedies per year. Doesn’t matter the reason. The numbers outweigh gun tragedies by a far margin. Do the math. I’d like to see another post by you when you get them.

          • fearlesskris

            This isn’t a discussion about playing baseball or chopping food; carpentry or knot tying – it’s a discussion about guns. All those other objects have a legitimate purpose in our lives. I don’t understand why people talk about baseball bats when 1) I can possibly (not likely but possibly) outrun someone with a baseball bat; 2) being hit with a baseball bat does not automatically mean death the way being shot in the head or chest does; and 3) I have always enjoyed playing baseball and baseball bats have the purpose of hitting a ball for our fun and exercise. Guns have no other purpose but to kill. And there is no “side” to the statistic that having a gun in your household significantly increases the likelihood of your own death by gunshot – suicide, accident, or homicide. Sadly, it is what it is.

      • Chained

        You’re an unbelievably ignorant libtard. Kids aren’t getting massacred by high capacity magazines. It’s people with mental disease doing the killing and no amount of legislation will stop that. Guns don’t kill, people do. Adding more asinine gun laws only hinder law abiding citizens ability to protect themselves while allowing criminals to freely run amok and do as they have always done, disobey laws. Quit listening to the effin biased and controlled lying media. They have no clue and are part of the problem.

        • gail2012

          Yes people kill people not mindless guns. Also, I do believe that These mass shooters are liberals from lib wacko parents.

      • gail2012

        First of all the only things that’s going to stop that bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun. Plain and simple. I don’t own a gun but I do realize if a criminal or mentality ill person starts shooting up anything then you need another shooter to stop them. Colorado had the Bateman shooter. Now if you don’t think something odd about the sophiscation of that shooting for schizophrenic nut case. Most schizophrenics are so sick without their medication they can barely Function let alone build a bomb and buy guns on line. i’m just saying! W e hsve kaws already on the books they have To be used.

      • gwinf

        And you are foolish enough to believe that banning weapons or magazines is going to solve that problem? The devil certainly loves fools, for they do his work for him.

        • gwinf

          You want to fix the problem? Ban liberalism. ALL of the perps involved in ALL the attacks you and others like you use to point your fingers at us gun owners were either radical liberal progressives or the children of progressive liberals.

      • Joshua Barker

        Funny how the anti-gun whack jobs like you demand more of what allows these massacres to happen. Adam Lanza broke over 40 laws in his rampage (several of which prohibited him from owning and touching those guns in the first place) – and you really think punishing the law-abiding folks would’ve stopped it? Even if it were legal for Adam Lanza to own those hunting rifles, all guns were already banned on the school campus yet he clearly paid no mind to that law. Isn’t it ironic that in 200+ years prior to the gun-free school zone act, there were only 7 school gun murders? We’ve had over 70 since the gun-free school zone act was passed — AND YOU SAY WE’RE DOING THE SLAUGHTERING? You’re absolutely off your rocker and completely insane. You aren’t just part of the problem — you ARE the problem.

      • dankster

        i don’t suppose you’ll ever get around to blaming the criminal who is responsible for the crime but could you tell me why you believe students shouldn’t have the right to defend them selves just because they happen to be on campus?

      • NukeWaste

        Do you have any idea what you are spewing about? White kids kill many fewer than blacks. I know. Where I live gang related killings aren’t even reported. And that is black- on- black crime. Limiting mag rounds won’t help. You can’t get the guns away from criminals. I carried when I was in college. The 2 fools who complained were told by campus police to hide behind me if somebody starts shooting. “Nuff said!

      • tommie3761

        fearlesskris, YOU are a complete ASS! Move to a communist country. I’m sure you’ll be pleased to know that only the government in those countries slaughter people with guns. You will fit right in!
        In both of the incidences that you cite, mentally disturbed individuals commited those murders. No concealed handgun license required! Had a teacher been allowed to carry a concealed handgun, perhaps fewer families would be mouning their lost children.

      • Majorwrecks

        There is only one word for you Fearlesskriss “Hoplophobia” Because I own a firearm or firearms doe’s not make me a criminal I don’t wish to slaughter anyone but I will defend myself and my family. what part of infringe is not understood here? Maybe you should move to Chicago where the gun laws are plenty and do absolutely nothing to save lives.

      • reggiec

        Instead of banning guns or clips of any size; ban the behavior modifying drugs almost every mass shooter was taking. Even the warning labels state that these drugs can cause breaks from relaity, suicidal thoughts, aggression, fantasies and other adverse reactions. How about a comprehensive report listing the drugs every mass shooter was taking or had recently stopped taking prior to or at the time they started shooting innocent people.
        Of course big pharm would scream bloody murder and lobby to stop any investigation of this kind.

      • barbiecakes

        I saw a man interviewed who was at the massacre and he said he left his handgun at home because it was a gun free zone. I guess the Obama campaign worker, occupy San Diego attendee James Holmes didn’t get the memo. The problem with gun free zones is that only law-abiding citizens pay attention.

      • conservative

        “but it’s you and your kind who are doing the slaughtering” I don’t think so! Sorry to inform you but 99% of these mass killing were done by liberals.

        • fearlesskris

          Hahaha, you must be living in Colorado and enjoying your new freedom to get Rocky Mountain High (sure, I’m a little jealous truth be told)! Wow, 99 percent, eh? Did you go to the Mitt Romney school of statistics? That really made my morning chuckle though, thanks Conservative!

      • gas pump junkie

        We need to deal with the people who have mental issues and keep them away from guns and putting them in an institution for the help they needs keeps them away from guns. Most of the rest of gun violence is gang bangers and repeat offenders. Lock’em up and throw away the key when they use a gun. Don’t punish the honest law abiding citizen by taking away his rights. You are still going to have your mentaly disturbed people troubling you while you still try and do away with guns. Poor misguided fools.

        • fearlesskris

          I agree with paying attention to and dealing with mental health issues. It’s too bad that the funds needed for quality mental health care and the homes and institutions that provide care had their funding gutted (and let’s see, who gutted funding for health care in the first place?). And there’s a lot of talk about the mentally ill, but who is going to make the determination of danger? We are already required to report clients who are a danger to themselves or to others (i.e. they have made a real threat in a session or phone call). Sometimes it seems you want to have a witch hunt for lonely teen boys who may seem weird to others. Not going to help at all – disenfranchise those who are already suffering from being pushed aside. And all of you are law abiding gun owners – right up until the minute you pull the trigger and start slaughtering. Gang bangers aren’t doing these massacres (not that I support criminal behavior in any fashion), repeat offenders? You mean they didn’t TAKE THE GUN away the first time??? Soldiers and veterans committing suicide, kids gunning down other kids, domestic violence – geez a woman is so much more at risk if there is a gun in the home, athletes shooting themselves and others…and of course there’s the militia doing their little training scenarios for the end of the world or a government takeover. Grown up games with live ammo, yeah, just what we need.

          • John The Baptist

        So if this was done by a car and killed 50 or more on the play ground it would be OK or would you ban all the cars?

        • fearlesskris

          Oh my god, how many times do we have to talk about cars and their purpose and guns and their purpose? Cars – their purpose is to transport people and things from one place to another. Yes, there are accidents. I have accidents like tripping when I walk – I don’t use a wheelchair to avoid my very occasional walking accidents. I would NOT be okay with the slaughter of 50 or more on a playground – why would you suggest such an incredibly imbecilic idea? Oh yeah… Now, the purpose of a gun – it has one purpose and one purpose only – to kill. The gun serves no other function. And you know what? Not one of you has the right to take another’s life (unless you are on active duty with our military or serve in one of the many different police/security forces). We as a country don’t dole out capital punishment for non-capital crimes, no matter what your wet dream is. Now, do you want to talk about baseball bats and their purpose? Do you want to talk about knives and their purpose? Maybe cell phones… You need to come up with some new and far better arguments for your Yosemite Sam lives people – these are getting old and tired. Well, plus the arguments are nonsensical and stupid.

      • dankster

        what makes you think a college campus is safer without concealed carry? if you haven’t noticed, schools. with their [no gun] zones have become targets for these wacko’s. taking arms from legal cc is not going to do anything but open the door wider for these lunatics.

    Absolutely no one in CO should be surprised. These are the liberal big government politicians THEY put in office. They have no one to blame but their fat, lazy, shiftless and indifferent selves. Indiana is VERY pro-gun (I hold a LIFETIME concealed carry permit!) so come east Magpul; I need a at least 50 more mags myself. I might even come out of retirement to work for them, or Barrett, or Olympic Arms, or LaRue, or Cheaper Than Dirt since they have all refused to sell guns and ammo to states offensive to the Second Amendment.

  • Jim

    If Colorado voters are willing to be led to the proverbial slaughter, they certainly have the right to do so. Problem is, Constitutionally speaking….they DON’T have the option of violating anyone’s rights under the 2nd Ammendment. It would sure be swell if ALL LEGISLATORS had to pass a test on the Constitution and The Bill of Rights in order to be sworn into office, wouldn’t it? Perhaps then we would all have the privelege of seeing the Constitution once again properly observed & obeyed,….EVEN BY THOSE SENT TO CONGRESS TO REPRESENT THE PEOPLE!!

  • gail2012

    They good people of Colorado who have common sense among these democrat Nazis will take this to court and hopefully these leftwing radicals will be arrested for treason. They have no right to infringe or alter or change the 2nd Amendment. NONE! We are not only protected by the 2nd Amendment but also by The Bill of Rights. So they can hide in the middle of the night and pass whatever bill they want. IT’S NOT LEGAL! Personally the state of Colorado should arrest these leftist communist wackos immediaty.

    • Black Rain

      I can tell you the court will uphold the decision. If they want to make such laws, it’s Co citizens fault for putting such idiots in congress and senate.

  • fearlesskris

    So…this bill bans concealed carry ONLY in college campus buildings. Wow. We can’t take that now can we. Because “packing heat” in schools has always left joy in people’s hearts – oh actually wait. It often ends up with dead children and parents planning funerals. You are seriously telling me that you can’t visit a school campus without a concealed weapon? You are that afraid of and paranoid about the world? That’s possibly the most cowardly thing I’ve ever heard. I’m sad for you posting here, it’s heartbreaking that you are so frightened.

      You’re forgetting one thing – none of the mass murder-suicides were committed by someone who went through the trouble of an FBI background check to get a concealed carry permit. ALL of the mass murder-suicides have been committed by individuals where it was already illegal for them to possess the weapons… oh and both the Aurora and CT shootings were GUN FREE ZONES… worked out well, didn’t it? Yet you want MORE gun-free zones where all of the mass murder-suicides happen… Either you’re insanely retarded or you’re more evil than the mass murderers are by advocating for more mass murder….

      Do you have fire insurance? Then you are paranoid. Do you have collision insurance? Then you are paranoid. Do you own a fire extinguisher? Then you are paranoid.

      Name one — just one — instance where a lawful concealed carry licensee has gone into a school and it “end(ed) up with dead children and parents planning funerals.” Just ONE.

      You are a glittering jewel of colossal ignorance.

      Are you aware that three school shootings were stopped by common citizens with their privately owned firearms? Of course you don’t. Look up Pearl Mississippi High School, Appalachian School of Law, and Edinboro, Pennsylvania High School.

      The problem is not too many firearms in a school. The problems start when there is only ONE firearm in the school.

      Sigh. Why do I even spend the time?

    Looks like Colorado has lost its freedom and been invaded by the Cali looney liberals. Wonder how
    they will enforce that law based upon the freedom that the resident of Colorado have enjoyed for
    year and the freedom loving citizen of that state. I know some residents up there and they will never
    give up their right to protect themselve and thier family to some mindless beauractats. But this
    is what happens when you elect the socialist democrat liberals to office and surrender your
    freedoms to the government beauractats.

  • http://twitter.com/wvfanclaycounty James Hughes

    Colo. Legislators have committed Treason and are Tyrannical, and are not above the Constitution and Bill of Rights, The citizens of Colorado should take up Arms against the Govt. If you are a true Patriots let the Revolution Begin. Dont be a Slave to Tyrannical Governments. Set the stage for the whole world to see that we are a Free Nation of We The People. and Under God.

    I will no longer consider Colorado as a vacation spot. I hope all tourists will boycott this State. What a stupid decision. Two magazines with 15 rounds each can be changed out in less than one second. These politicians have no common sense. If the people of Colorado want to maintain their freedoms and protect their 2nd amendment rights, they better get rid of these so called progressive Liberals.What next?

    Evil kills; criminals kill; gun-free zones facilitate killing – but hardware (guns and Magazines) doesn’t kill,; background checks don’t impact law-abiding citizens; and gun-free zones don’t protect citizens.

    OFF TOPIC: Just an FYI, have had excellent luck at getting Mini 14 mags at sportsmansguide..com had on back order and confirmed I would wait, got them in 3 weeks.

    I don’t buy a lot there because I think the pricing is a bit high and they do not label the stuff made in China, but for this purpose I give them 2 thumbs up

    The have tons of mags for all calibers.

    Find the mag you need, buy, then confirm you’ll wait if out of stock. Worked good for us.

    The reason that high cap mags are needed. (i cut and pasted this and the posting program screwed it up)

    From “Understanding
    Firearm Ballistics” by Robert A. Riker

    DRUG-CRAZED CRIMINALS

    Before we delve deeper into the ballistics of self-defense, we need

    to discuss a
    problem that has always existed to a small extent, but
    in the drug

    culture of
    today, it is all too common. That is the problem of trying to stop or

    kill a person
    who is high on drugs.

    Many of us
    reading this book have
    minds that think in scientific

    terms. In other
    words, we believe that in nature there are certain actions that

    are followed by
    certain reactions. We believe in proven facts and theories

    that sound
    logical and sensible. The sections on gyroscopic action and

    Newton’s laws are easy because they make sense. This next little section

    defies comprehension, yet it is true.

    We will begin
    with an incident that took place in Indiana The scene

    opens in a restaurant that is busy with the dinner crowd. A robber with a

    pistol
    approaches the cashier and demands all the money in the cash register.

    Saying the
    crook is high on drugs is like saying the Pope is religious.

    Apparently he
    was in another world. What
    he would do with his handgun or

    how many people he would kill was unknown and unpredictable. What

    happened next
    was also unpredictable.

    The restaurant
    owner was armed with a firearm that, from a

    standpoint of
    terminal ballistics, would be considered excellent He had a

    short barreled .357 magnum revolver
    loaded with 125 grain jacketed hollow

    point (JHP) bullets.
    (A chart printed a few pages later will show an RII of

    44.4 and a
    ranking of no. 4. While some people will disagree with this

    ranking and
    some later test results come out slightly different, it is still an

    excellent
    self-defense load.)

    A normal person
    would not be able to withstand many hits from

    such a weapon, but drugs change a body until the reaction is
    abnormal.

    When the crook
    was ordered to drop his weapon he continued to

    threaten the
    life of everyone around him. He then absorbed 18 hits,
    mostly in

    the chest, before he dropped his gun and went
    down. And no, that is not a

    typo or a mistake. It was reported that the restaurant owner reloaded his six

    shot revolver
    twice. The criminal was so high with drugs that his body did

    not respond to
    anything, either internal or external

    More details of
    the above story would not prove helpful. But there

    is no reason to
    believe it is anything other than the truth. Especially
    in light

    of the
    following story. It is also very shocking and a real eye-opener. Actual

    names, dates
    and the location will be given so that if the reader finds it also

    hard to
    believe, as many will, it can be checked for truthfulness.

    This occurrence
    took place in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on August 1,

    1977. The facts are well known and well
    documented A videotape made by

    Officer Steve
    Chaney, a survivor of the incident, is used in police training

    classes. It
    also has been written up many times in various publications. The

    account can be
    told as a long and interesting story, but we will keep to the

    points that
    have a relationship to terminal ballistics.

    Rookie Officer
    Linda Lawrence accompanied Field Training

    Officer Steve Chaney when they responded to a burglary call at an
    apartment

    in the
    Broadmoor Plantation. They were confronted in a bedroom by John

    James Mullery,
    a 6 foot, 200 pound,
    42 year old Caucasian with a long

    criminal record
    that included kidnapping and assault. He was also,
    at the

    time, high from
    cocaine and PCP. At the beginning of a brief struggle,

    Mullery made a
    grab for the Officer’s 4″
    barreled S & W model 64 which

    was loaded with
    125 grain .38 Special
    + P ammunition. While this is not the

    most powerful
    cartridge around, it is a good
    defensive round and generally

    performs well.

    A fight for the
    Officer’S gun ensued, and Officer Chaney realized

    that Mullery was going to win. He told Linda Lawrence to shoot Mullery.

    She was armed with an identical
    weapon, which she promptly used. The

    bullet hit
    Mullery near the wrist and did tremendous damage as the hollow

    point expanded.
    After he was hit, Mullery fired 2
    shots into the wall. Officer

    Chaney managed
    to again get control of his gun
    and fired 2 shots directly

    into Mullery’s
    chest with no noticeable effect

    Mullery then turned his fury on Linda Lawrence and grabbed her

    service
    revolver and shot her once in the middle of her chest. She collapsed

    immediately. At
    this point, the struggle between the two men
    continued for

    the two
    weapons. The fight was both long and hard. At one point, Officer

    Chaney fired a
    shot into the left side of Mullery’s abdomen from zero range.

    There was no
    effect and the fight continued. (At this point, if you have been

    counting.
    Mullery had been hit 4 times with 3 in vital areas.)

    The fight for
    life went on. Chaney had fired a number of rounds

    into the floor
    during the struggle to prevent Mullery from firing them into

    him. Now he was holding an empty gun. As Mullery stabbed him and beat

    him in the
    back, Officer Chaney used a Dade speedloader to reload 6 fresh

    cartridges into
    the S & W. He then shot Mullery again, this time in the upper

    middle part of his abdomen. After a few more seconds, he shot him again in

    the top of his
    head. Mullery finally went down.

    Over? It should
    have been over a long time earlier, but as Officer

    Chaney backed
    away and sought support for his tired and wounded body,

    Mullery revived
    and stood up. At this point he had been shot many times and

    lost so much
    blood that he looked like a bad scene in the scariest of horror

    films. And yet
    he was not only alive, but also ready to continue the fight to

    kill Officer
    Chaney.

    Four more .38 + P
    hollow-points hit Mullery, two in the chest with

    no noticeable
    effect. Another in the abdomen also had no
    effect. The last

    cartridge in
    the officer’s gun put a bullet into Mullery’s pelvis and broke his

    hip. This
    removed a main part of his skeletal support and he went down

    again. He was
    still not dead, just down. Mullery tried to crawl but
    slowly

    died as the
    last of his blood drained from his body.

    Rookie Officer
    Linda Lawrence had died almost instantly from a

    bullet to the
    heart. She was the first female officer in
    Louisiana to be killed

    enabled him to continue with wounds that would have eventually

    killed him even

    no. 7 and no. 8

    I suppose it’s because everybody knows that Commiefornia is crazy, even by your average lunatic standards, but why is it I hear virtually nothing where Commiefornia’s gun rights are concerned. The laundry list of rights to be taken from us boggles the mind! And if this continues all we’ll be left with is rubber-band guns… MAYBE. If you live in this state it’s imperative that you start writing to your reps in Sacramento and let them know how you feel about about their gun grabbing proposals. If you choose to sit and do nothing then prepare to turn them in. Or find a good state to move to (Wyoming or Arizona). Your choice…

    These laws are stupid. The laws they are making are illegal in the first place. Why should any of us take them seriously. They are obstructing justice just by violating there oaths to uphold the constitution. Then coming up with ridiculous punishments if you don’t comply. Especially when no one has violated any law except them. Obama doesn’t care about the kids in Connecticut, he is looking to overthrow the United States of America. That being said by me, can easily be said by Legislators to Obama’s face.

    Constitutional attorney Stewart Rhodes will explain The Second Amendment for you.

    …”The whole point of the Second Amendment is to preserve the military capacity of the American people – to preserve the ability of the people, who are the militia, to provide for their own security as individuals, as neighborhoods, towns, counties, and states, during any emergency, man-made or natural; to preserve the military capacity of the American people to resist tyranny and violations of their rights by oath breakers within government; and to preserve the military capacity of the people to defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, including those oath breaking domestic enemies within government. It is not about hunting, and at its core, the Second Amendment is not really even about self-defense against private criminals. It is about self-defense against public criminals – against tyrants, usurpers, and foreign invaders.

    . Thus, any attempt to ban their possession, sale, purchase, or transfer, is an attempt by Tyrants to disarm the American people.” MOLON LABE
