Hunters begin boycott of Colorado over new gun laws

All across the country, hunters have joined in a call to boycott Colorado over that state’s recent laws to curb gun freedoms.

Michael Bane, with the Outdoor Channel, says he’s not filming the show’s four productions in the state any longer, CBS says. And hunters have started canceling their trips to the state, the Colorado Springs Gazette reports.

“There’s a united front of sportsmen that are tired of having their freedoms and liberties and fundamental rights taken away from them,” said Northwest Colorado hunting guide Chris Jurney in the CBS report. “That kind of unity among sportsmen is going to be big, and unfortunately for those of us who live here, we’re going to suffer the consequences of this misguided legislation.”

      They are democrats they only care about their agenda no matter how many people it hurts. Agenda over everything is their mantra.

    Even I will stop passing through CO on roadtrips back home. I’ll either swing south on I-40 or bypass further north. I’ll miss going through the Rockies on I-70, but I’ll not tolerate giving any business or money to such a misguided group of fools.

    “The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference–they deserve a place of honor with all that is good. George Washington

    Americans have the right and advantage of being armed–unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. James Madison

    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny in government. Thomas Jefferson

    Those that hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not. Patrick Henry

    The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed. Alexander Hamilton.

    The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the government-lest it come to dominate our lives and interests. Patrick Henry

    Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. Benjamin Franklin

    The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the U.S. from keeping their own arms. Samuel Adams

    Yeah, so why aren’t any of you boycotting NY, NJ, MD, CT, MA, and CA? Because we are now a selfish nation of fat, lazy and entitled pigs unwilling to sacrifice a doughnut much less something they want from one of these communist states. Grow a pair! Speak out. Stop into places with “No Guns” signs and tell the owners why you won’t do business with them; even if it is your favorite doughnut shop. Write companies in these states and tell them why you don’t order from them. I do. Every day I write at least one real letter. They ignore emails but they sit up when you TAKE THE TIME to actually write them. Or you could just order in, flop down on your oversized couch and watch a reality show. Which one you choose to do will tell you if you are American or a serf.

        The UN on US soil is an intrusion and they should be considered enemy of the USA! Do you want the brown shirts in your house or on your land? Remember, use hollow point bullets like they are carrying.

      I bought my LAST Kimber over seven years ago. I’ve now dropped New York like the piece of filthy volcanic slag that it is.

    • gregsmom

      I was recently in CA primarily to visit my 90-year-old aunt and a few other relatives. Within two days, I felt as if I were in enemy territory. Couldn’t wait to get out. I was born there but can’t stand to be there anymore. Thank God for Wyoming where I spent 20 years and learned how to be a self-reliant person. I agree that we’re so lazy and have such an atitude of entitlement that I don’t know if there will be enough of us brave enough to do anything when the time comes. But I know that I am, and I know some others who are, but most people I know are spoiled little brats who can’t live without all their yuppie clothes, cars and electronic paraphenalia. You are right on, OldDoc.

    leave now. move to states that support the second amendment. defeat the state legislators and get sanity back. dont return until.

  • Rocks101

    What everyone should do is not go to Chicago, or spend any vacation money there. Chicago has gone too far restricting gun owner’s, now they will not put any money into gun makers stocks. Let everyone you know not to spend a penny in Chicago, I go to Indiana to buy gas, cig’s, ammo, and what ever else just so the tax is not going into Chicago.

    good for them, hope they vote all the fools out of office. and repeal the law. and hoe theyoss a lot of mney for comp. closing.

  • colorado cowgirl

    honestly, i think this is a huge mistake.

    yalls are gonna boycott an entire state for the actions of a few?

    really?

    what about the long term effects of such a boycott?
    has anyone thought of that?

    what about the outfitters? they have no problems with guns, yet your punishing them and their families.

    what about the local shops who store your guns and sell you ammo? they have no agreement witht he lawmakers, yet they are being punished.

    what about the stores who sell you your hunting licenses?

    what about the mom and pop diner where you buy your coffee from before heading out?

    what about their families?

    what about their kids?

    you want to teach the lawmakers a lesson, then how about all the hunters start writing Hickenlooper and tell him where you stand and what you want?

    i have, multiple times.

    maybe if everyone floods the office with mail and emaills maybe they will get the idea.
    dont punish families for someone elses actions.

    • FAAQ2

      Doing anything you have mentioned will do no good whatsoever – but a boycott of Colorado will.. Yeah cowgirl your letters have really changed things haven’t they ? Colorado will be punished like they haven’t seen.. And it is what they deserve..

    • gregsmom

      Your lawmakers won’t pay attention to letters from people out-of-state. You’re dreaming if you really think that will make any difference. But a boycott that hurts the state in the pocketbook they will notice. And why didn’t true Coloradans do something before it got this out-of-control. Move to a state that supports the Constitution, take action within your state with other like-minded people or deal with the consequences. That’s the adult position in this.

    • https://www.facebook.com/app_scoped_user_id/761645580/ B Alan Eisen

      WRONG ANSWER!! They did nothing to stop the problem. So they are part of the problem. Boycott the entire state. They ARE all guilty.

    • john Goult

      I would think that the Business in Colo with the LOST of there income from the Change in “law’s”, The People that THEY VOTED FOR will be looking for new JOB’S! Run the Communist out of the STATE of Colo!

    • Ed

      Coloradans must accept responsibility for allowing THEIR EMPLOYEES to stray off the reservation. I was raised there, and it makes me sad, but it is what it is. Utah may be next: our state house and senate recently passed a “semi” Constitutional Carry bill by large margins, and Gov. Herbert just vetoed it. Time for him to go… Now I need to call Coors and inform them why I’m no longer buying their beer. Geez… talk about unintended consequences…

  • KDS

    Boycott all products related to Colorado! Do business with Pro Colorado gun people only!

  • JIM

    NO MORE SLIPERY SLOPES ON SNOW FOR MY FAMILY !!!,HUNTING OR VACATING IN COLORADO !!! THERE ARE OTHER STATES THAT APPRECIATE AND LIVE BY OUR CONSTITUTION AND THE ADMENDMENTS THERE OF !!!! LEAVE COLORADO NOW AND DON’T LOOK BACK !!!

  • Stephen N Russell

    Once CO loses hunter income, they’ll make changes or go Chap 11.

  • Dino61

    We must all stand tall for this Nation and the Bill of Rights and the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence…..FOR these Public Servants gone ROGUE are all DEFACTO and have no power or authority to do anything they are doing and all they are doing is fillded with Criminal FRAUD DECEIPT SEDITION and TREASON….

    Why do you and all of the other many organizations continue to supporting a Defacto Pretender USURPER government
    acting as though our Criminal Public Servants gone Rougue have any power
    or authoritry when in fact they no longer have any power or authority
    to do squat!! Everything they are doing is NULL AND VOID and they do NOT
    have any Legal Constitutional power or force to enforce anything. They
    are all operating OUTSIDE the Constitution!!

    Obama is a proven
    known FRAUD USURPER and as such he and his signature bares absolutely no

    power or authority whatsoever! and they want to imprison people like me

    for standing up for our Nation our Constitution and everything she
    stands for…. limiting our ability to communicate organize against
    their Seditious Treason against this Nation and our people. Well, what
    about them….what about arresting them for their
    Extreme abuse and dishonor to the Sworn Oaths they took to protect and
    defend? what about all the Crimes they have committed the Stealing and
    Embezzlement of Trillions of Dollars their violations of the Logan Act
    meeting in secret behind the backs of the American people meeting in
    secret with Foreign governments and eneymy agents providing aid and
    comfort to them planning

    for the deliberate destruction of America the Disarming of America
    (which will never happen and there will be a severe price to pay for
    attempting it). Using our own tax dollars against us deliberately
    participating in Mass Genocide against the American people and now they
    are open about their criminal agenda and now
    want to tag us and track us like livestock (not happening) they will
    hang first! Using our moneys against us building underground dumb bases
    and Nazi
    Hitler FEMA PRISON Camps behind our backs poisoning our Air and soil
    with CHEMTRAILS, working with Monsanto and Bill gates to poison our Food
    water and vaccines……and you wonder where our money is going?????
    They stop allowing children from visiting the White House, the PEOPLES
    HOUSE cause there is no money!? yet they can easily find 250 million to
    support the Muslim Brotherhood?? (because they are to busy stealing it
    and using it to destroy America and the American people because it is
    the only way they will be able to bring about their perverted criminal
    Nazi 4th Reich NWO) This Government and its criminal associates are all
    guilty of Treason
    and Mis Prison of Treason as well as a host of other crimes…….HELL
    NO! Over our dead bodies and theirs HELL NO its not happening!

    They
    are all biting off far more than they can chew and they are going to
    all end up at the end of a rope where they belong! The 2nd Revolution is
    close at hand and it won’t even be anything like the a Cival war
    becasue its going to be all 50 States and our armed forces against them!

    As
    long as this NWO Puppet FRAUD USURPER is in the office of President the
    Constitution is clear: As long as there is a FRAUD USURPING the office
    of President Congress and the Senate can make and pass NO LAWS!!!!

    No laws of Congress are valid

    “Congress can pass no law while a usurper pretends to occupy “the
    Office of President.” The Constitution provides that “[e]very Bill which
    shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall,
    before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United
    States” (Article I, Section 7, Clause 2). Not to a usurper posturing as
    “the President of the United States,” but to the true and rightful
    President. If no such true and rightful President occupies the White
    House, no “Bill” will or can, “before it become a Law, be presented to
    [him].” If no “Bill” is so presented, no “Bill” will or can become a
    “Law.” And any purported “Law” that the usurper “approve[s]” and
    “sign[s],” or that Congress passes over the usurper’s “Objections,” will
    be a nullity. Thus, if Obama deceitfully “enters office” as an usurper,
    Congress will be rendered effectively impotent for as long as it
    acquiesces in his pretenses as “President.””

    And

    He Could not be Removed Except by Force

    If Obama does become an usurper posturing as “the President,”
    Congress cannot even impeach him because, not being the actual
    President, he cannot be “removed from Office on Impeachment for, and
    Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors”
    (see Article II, Section 4). In that case, some other public officials
    would have to arrest him—with physical force, if he would not go along
    quietly—in order to prevent him from continuing his imposture.
    Obviously, this could possibly lead to armed conflicts within the
    General Government itself, or among the States and the people.

    Bear in mind that as an imposter Commander–in-Chief of the Armed Forces, “he will be entitled to no obedience whatsoever from anyone in those forces.
    Indeed, for officers or men to follow any of his purported “orders”
    will constitute a serious breach of military discipline—and in extreme
    circumstances perhaps even “war crimes.” In addition, no one in any
    civilian agency in the Executive Branch of the General Government will
    be required to put into effect any of Obama’s purported “proclamations,”
    “executive orders,” or “directives” (Viera, J.).

    • Sam W

      Yeah, resistance.

  • KDS

    I’m definitely sorry for the lawful gun owners who have to suffer the economic hardship! Hard as it may be, but in the name of Freedom from Obama I know you will join in and also do your part. None of us know where this psycohaulic intends to take us. It’s like being in a car with a convicted sex offender.

  • john Goult

    Moved out of Colo 6 year’s ago. Saw this coming!

  • Colorado Outfitter

    Posted in response to a “friend’s” view that he should boycott Colorado Hunting…No Jack, you are wrong…The current legislation doesn’t care about hunting income. They got elected on the heals of a totally botched campaign by the GOP and the wave of Obama’s machine at our colleges, topped off by the idiots who put amendment #64 on the ballot…”A Perfect Storm” to say the least. But trust me, this is not reflective of the core values of Colorado, at least not those of us living outside of the People’s Republic of Boulder. The only thing this boycott will do is force outfitters like us to lay off guides, cooks and wranglers who support the 2nd amendment more than anyone on this social network. These are hard working, caring people who love our state and our conservative values. Actions like this will force them out of Colorado. Then yes, the liberals will have won another state. I say, do the opposite…Buy a new gun, take a youth hunting, bring them to our great state, show them how the Real-Deal Colorado people live and work, and convince them to move to our great state. We need more constitutional, outdoor loving conservatives to counter the influx of the idiots who relocated here because certain other states west of us are going bankrupt. We welcome all but please leave your left-coast politics behind. 2014 that’s our best hope and I have tremendous faith in the people of Colorado that want our state back! By the way…we are having one of our best booking years on record, and are already 50% booked full for 2014. We thank God and our fantastic repeat customers everyday for this blessing and we will do our VERY BEST to provide high quality service and a great hunting experience. If you think we are not conservatives who despise what happened in Denver…We’ll talk to mamma-Teresa when she serves desert. People do care Jack, and they want to support our business and our conservative values. Let’s win at the election booth, not put the lives of good people at risk.
