Gun grabbing train - Next stop Colorado


Recommended Posts

Looks like the Colorado mag- ban has already passed the legislation. :fool::bad:

It has passed the House of Representatives 34:31 and now seems to be heading to the Senate,

where the Dems hold a 20:15 majority. On top, the Governor has signalled his willingness to

support this fecal matter.

[At least this will hopefully have enough negative backfire :aug: for the Colorado Dems. on the next state elections in 2014.

The 2014 elections will hopefully make a lot of people loosing their seats, not only in CO.

There is a bunch of other States, i.e. NH, and the wave should punch through to the U.S.

House and Senate as well. If the GOP is able to gain the Senate majority, Obama will

turn into a lame duck for the rest of his term. Unfortunately, too much damage will have

happened to the country until then.

Hope they'll get their bill!!!

But one has to remember CO is getting more and more liberal. Proof? They legalized weed among with Washington I think on Barry's reelection day.

Not telling this to get a discussion started about weed, just telling my impression from what I say studying over there 2 years ago.

Best regards

Split from the "Chicago" thread. Read, as is this was the opening post in this thread.

In other news, Colorado gun owners are facing a big one, too.


Today's vote was 34:31 in favor of the restrictions, so this might well head to the Governor's desk for signature.

Wonder, whether Magpul will come through on their threat to leave the state. Texas, Wyoming and New Hampshire

would surely appreciate their tax $$, whereas Cheyenne, WY is just 90 miles from Magpul's current location.

AFAIK, WY would be just a short ways up the interstate for magpul and i could absolutely see them going there. It sounds like a feasible locale to move to. Watch out guys, Texas will be next to be overcome with the Libtardness!! I ain´t joking. It´s a real threat.

Colorado Senate passes bill on limitation of magazines


The bill passed on a 18-17 vote, with Democratic Sens. Cheri Jahn of Wheat Ridge and Lois Tochtrop of Thornton voting against it. Two Republican lawmakers on Monday said they will disobey the measure if it becomes law.

Good read from the Outdoor Channel pulling out of CO:

Good read from the Outdoor Channel pulling out of CO:


Fortunately, average US- employees are more mobile and flexible than here in Europe.

If a vital industrial sector like the hunting industry would move out of CO,

this state would sooner or later experience their own little Detriot- effect. :teufel_17:

Magpul is getting serious.

From their Facebook page:

Apparently Gov Hickenlooper has announced that he will sign HB 1224 on Wednesday. We were asked for our reaction, and here is what we said:

We have said all along that based on the legal problems and uncertainties in the bill, as well as general principle, we will have no choice but to leave if the Governor signs this into law. We will start our transition out of the state almost immediately, and we will prioritize moving magazine manufacturing operations first. We expect the first PMAGs to be made outside CO within 30 days of the signing, with the rest to follow in phases. We will likely become a multi-state operation as a result of this move, and not all locations have been selected. We have made some initial contacts and evaluated a list of new potential locations for additional manufacturing and the new company headquarters, and we will begin talks with various state representatives in earnest if the Governor indeed signs this legislation. Although we are agile for a company of our size, it is still a significant footprint, and we will perform this move in a manner that is best for the company and our employees.

It is disappointing to us that money and a social agenda from outside the state have apparently penetrated the American West to control our legislature and Governor, but we feel confident that Colorado residents can still take the state back through recalls, ballot initiatives, and the 2014 election to undo these wrongs against responsible Citizens.

Let's see if they follow through. There are surely States who'd appreciate a $80M business.

ETA: 3/15 Letter from Magpul's attorneys to Gov. Hickenlooper

Colorado Sheriffs refuse to enforce new gun laws


Weld County Sheriff John Cooke won’t enforce new state gun measures expected to be signed into law by Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, arguing the proposed firearms restrictions give a "false sense of security."

Lawmakers in Colorado on Friday approved a landmark expansion of background checks on firearm purchases. Earlier in the week, Colorado lawmakers approved a 15-round limit on ammunition magazines.

The sheriff told the news outlet that he and other county sheriffs "won’t bother enforcing" the laws because it won't be possible to keep track of how gun owners are complying with the new requirements.

Cooke is joined in his opposition to the proposals by El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa, who told an angry packed crowd at a meeting on Thursday in Colorado Springs he would stand firm against the bills.
