Posting in support of our fellow Coloradoans, hope there is a good turnout to support this. And I pray that I never have to ask for your help here in Idaho.

That's great guys I hope you get it. Remember though, "universal background checks" are far more damaging to our Rights and the Rights of future generations than magazine limits.
If you get this overturned which would be fantastic, don't give up on the second part of kicking out UBC.

Hope you guys get it as well. It sucks that one group of lousy political hacks drove a fantastic company out of your state. The whole magazine capacity argument is such a joke anyhow. Half the pathetic politicians don't even have a clue about the normal capacities of firearms are.

It all sounds good but assuming it gets through the legislature its just going to end up on the same governor's desk that signed the original.

The difference being three senators have lost their jobs/resigned, multiple counties had voted to secede from Colorado and an election is looming where funds had been exhausted in this fight that they DID NOT anticipate, with the kind of backlash that was received. I hope that a lot of the dems see the writing on the wall...

Well I'd say if they put it on the governors desk and he vetoed it, it was hurt him badly in the polls and Tom Tancredo would likely walk away with the election. Colorado has to get their men to the polls.

If it means anything at all, after Colorado passed that last anti gun bill, I scratched it off my potential place to move to. I have become so totally sickened with Calif that the wife and I are finally leaving this state of liberal fools. We are now on the move and bypassing Colo.

^^^ at the risk of derailing this thread and getting it locked, I'll opine that if the above is true, then the most effective course of action is to find ways to convince more women that the RKBA is a good thing.

Democrats reject a Republican attempt to repeal restrictions on the size of ammunition magazines in Colorado.

Dozens testified for and against the proposal Monday before a House committee rejected the bill on a 7-4 party-line vote.


Let the bullets fly in November !!!!!!

Did you really expect a repeal bill to pass? These are the same people that voted for the magazine restrictions in the first place.

It is sickening. The politicians there are serving their own agendas and not the constitution, which they've all sworn to uphold. I hope they end up out on their backsides come reelection time.

I doubt you will see much of a change come November. One of the factors that allowed the recall to be successful was a last minute change from mail-in ballots to requiring people to vote in person. In a normal election 70% of Coloradans vote by mail. It takes a real commitment to an issue to take time off work and go to the polls and vote and that naturally favors that side that is fired up and mad enough to do a recall. That advantage goes away in a regular election.

All you need to do is look at California's latest victory for concealed carry permits, Chicago's CCW & gun shops ruled OK, New Hampshire's defeat of a UBC and you'll see that change is happening. The storm that we have created as Americans is fierce. Keep calm and carry on, keep everyone (especially at THR) up to date of what's going on. If you need financial support let us know and let us know how to contribute.

We thought California was lost, we thought Chicago was lost, we underestimated. Now is the time, let's kick butt, the rest of the country is with you and watching. Let us know how to help.

Are you saying everyone that votes by mail in CO votes blue? Granted we do get a lot of the "meh" votes by mail, but we're not sure how the outcome would have been if mail-in ballots were used. Don't let the libs fool you into thinking that it WOULD have been different - it MIGHT have been different.

I'm not saying that at all. What I'm saying is that a special election like a recall is not a normal election. Special elections are all about which side can turn out their base on a single issue. It turned out that there are more people passionate about gun rights than gun control. However, there are a whole lot more "meh" people in the middle that aren't going to bother going to vote in person for something they are not passionate about.
