There is a poll running on the Denver post about the magazine bill and a ballot measure to repeal it.

Read it carefully. It's easy to vote backwards if you are "For" the ballot initiative to repeal the magazine limit.

www.denverpost.com/index.html?_requestid=3166557

It is currently running 78% for repeal, 21% against repeal.

Enjoy!

if you are a resident (or not) - please WRITE Hickenlooper. http://www.colorado.gov/govhdir/requests/opinion-leg.html

you can indicate if you are a resident of Colorado or not on the form.

tell him you oppose HB-1224 and the other unconstitutional laws . please keep it respectful and plainly worded. Things like constitutional rights, jobs, tourism from sportsmen, relocation concerns about moving to colorado. ..etc all make for decent input.


article II section 13 of the Colorado Constitution is:

"The right of no person to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person and property, or in aid of the civil power when thereto legally summoned, shall be called in question; but nothing herein contained shall be construed to justify the practice of carrying concealed weapons."

then go crush the poll. we dropped 2% in the last 20 mins.

Yep sent my .02 cents in. Do you think these type polls done any good? The punks that right these laws just get their names and faces on the news. Politicians don't give a <removed> about whats right or wrong just trying to look helpful & caring.

I assume Hickenlooper told all on his staff to spend the day voting on this poll, emptying their browser cache, and voting again and again and again.

If you use Google Chrome the incognito more will allow you to vote more than once.

Either that, or an anti-gun website has also caught on to this poll. It's definitely worth noting how quickly there's been a swing in the results. Maybe someone can take Justin's advice and fire back in the interest of fairness?

Okay, someone is definitely screwing with the results on the anti-gun side. I went to the website and refreshed it a couple of times over the course of ten seconds, and literally watched the anti-gun answer grow with each mouse click. The poll wasn't moving anything like that last night. Someone is sitting at their computer, trying to make it look like the anti-gun side has more support than ours.

Something is sort of funny with this poll....... I refreshed the page 6 times within about 30-40 seconds, and every time I refreshed the page, the "yes" statistic dropped by .01%

That translates to over 1.5 votes/second for the "no" voters.

That rate translates to over 5400 votes/hour. They dont even have 6200 votes yet. Unless there was some kind of surge in voting during the 30 seconds in which I was refreshing the page, someone is manipulating the poll. In other words, this poll IS BEING MANIPULATED.:cuss:

try finding it from:

http://www.denverpost.com/opinionpolls


we are down to 60%

That link works, and we're over 70% with 92k votes.

Here are the current results for the issues they're polling:

Mag ban:

Assuming state House Bill 1224, which limits gun magazines to 15 rounds, will become law, how would you vote on a 2014 ballot measure to overturn it?
Total Votes = 92229
For. I oppose the limit and would vote to overturn the bill.
64778 Votes, or 70.23 %
Against. I support the limit and would vote to uphold the bill.
27229 Votes, or 29.52 %
Unsure. I haven't decided yet.
222 Votes, or 0.240 %

Overall legislative activity:

During Colorado's current legislative session, the majority Democrats have passed several gun-control bills, civil unions, in-state tuition for illegal immigrant children, and are poised to take on the death penalty and a major tax hike for education. Are they overreaching?
Total Votes = 26438
Yes. They are ignoring a large segment of the electorate.
23605 Votes, or 89.28 %
No. This is the will of the voters who elected them to office.
2455 Votes, or 9.285 %
Unsure. I'm waiting to see what actually becomes law.
378 Votes, or 1.429 %

Gay marriage:

Colorado will soon become one of 18 states that offer recognition of same-sex couples, either through or civil unions or gay marriage. Which, if either, do you support?
Total Votes = 28832
Civil unions
3774 Votes, or 13.08 %
Gay marriage
1272 Votes, or 4.411 %
Both
4370 Votes, or 15.15 %
Neither
19416 Votes, or 67.34 %

Bloomberg's soda ban:

Should New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg appeal a judge's decision to strike down a citywide ban on big sugary drinks?
Total Votes = 16376
Yes. The ban is an important public health effort.
626 Votes, or 3.822 %
No. The ban doesn't make any sense.
15555 Votes, or 94.98 %
Unsure. I can see both sides.
195 Votes, or 1.190 %

Y'all are still steady at over 70%. Point this out to your politically hesitant governor ... that's more than 2:1 against. A statewide vote could overturn the law; a statewide vote could also unseat him.

Nice.

Overturning the mag ban:
For 70.41%
Against 29.34%

Legislature ignoring the people:
Yes 91.01%
No 7.783%
