    That Senator's opponent stood in my living room last fall and asked me to help him, he is a great guy, regretfully I told him I was happy to vote for him but I was too busy with work to get out and help him...he lost to that liberal windbag by 109 votes...

    Never again.

    The 2014 election cycle starts now.

    What freedom to smoke pot but no freedom to carry a gun or to own what gun you choose?

    Possible win in Colorado...

    Rollie Heath, the state senator from the Peoples Republic of Boulder may pull his bill banning CCW on college campus. The Denver Post is reporting that he does not want it to go to a floor debate because he does not have the votes to get it passed. The Dems have a 20-15 advantage in the Senate of Colorado, but need 18 votes to get anything passed. 2 rural Dems and at least one other have come out against this bill, that coupled with some less than polite treatment of a rape victim by a Senator (female senator no less!) during a hearing seems to have turned the tide on this one. Keep banging away at them boys and girls, this aint over yet.

    It's not that he thinks it's a wrong headed bill; it's that he does not want the press having to say that the pro-gun side won a vote.

    The mag limit ban is still in play....but... 2 Dems -Jahn and Tochtrop will vote against it. This gives the Dems 18 votes. 3 Dems-Giron of Pueblo, Jones of Louisville and Newell of Littleton are undecided. If any one of those 3 vote against it, it dies. Pueblo is a pretty reddish purple district, so there is a good chance this goes the way of the dodo. Maybe magpul can stay! Keep pounding your state senators boys and girls, lets stop the madness.

    Several of us have a Town Hall meeting with Sen Newell in the AM. She sounds a little wavey on the subject.

    Sounds like a lot of pro-firearm tourists need to write letters to these three Senators and let them know that if their vote were to be the one that led to this being passed, said tourist will never spend a dime in their state. People get hung up on the fact that yes, they listen to their constituents, but at the same time, tourism is a big money maker, and funds a lot of taxes that the locals don't pay (hotel tax, rental car taxes, etc).

    We're Watching In Other States, Too

    What can people from other states do to help out? Alot of people think CO is run by lefties, and it won't happen other places. I don't like the thought of a snowball rolling downhill, out of control.

    That's a good idea, but I'd focus more on their districts (assuming they have any tourist industry in their districts).

    We win one!

    Colorado Senate President John Morse killed his own bill last night. Senate bill 196 would have held firearm sellers liable for the behaviors of the downstream buyer. He blasted the usual suspects (THE GUN LOBBY) for his bill being a non starter once it got to the Senate floor. Keep it up boys and girls, the pressure is starting to take effect, lets keep derailing the other feel good do nothing bills being debated. I doubt we will win on every one, but it's a good start! Banning CCW on campus is in trouble, and the blowback from the magazine ban issue is also having a positive effect. Emails. Letters. Rallies. Personal visits. Keep the pressure on!

    While I think 1229 is potentially the most harmful bill in the long run, 1224 is the one that has to be squashed at all costs. I'm afraid that if 1224 passes it will drive too many pro-liberty people and businesses from Colorado and negatively impact future elections.

    Yet Another Win!

    State Senator Rollie Heath from the Peoples Republic of Boulder killed his bill banning CCW on college campus. Geez- the Denver Post is just chock full of good news this morning. Every co-ed in Colorado should be doing a victory dance. KEEP THE PRESSURE ON! It's having an effect.

    Well that’s some good news. I just drove over to the town hall meeting only to find out it had been canceled. I left feeling discouraged that we weren’t having any effect whatsoever.

    This stuff works after all.

    I got exact, word for word duplicate responses from two of my Democrat representatives (both women). They are not even reading our correspondence.

    I didn't move to California, California moved to me. It's like a termite infestation.

    No dems voted against anything. Party lines on all of them.

    The committee votes to get the bills to the floor of the Senate were all on party lines. Once the rest of the votes were counted informally and the results were assured, two very bad bills went away. Make no mistake, pressure counts. Dems will vote against these bills if what they are hearing from their districts is overwhelmingly against. It takes 18 Senate votes to get a measure passed, two Dems are against most of the proposals, several from redder districts are leaning towards keeping their seats even if it means not toeing the party line. Pressure works and pressure counts, keep pouring it on.

    Influence Colorado!

    At the urging of a friend who lives there, I've emailed my thoughts on the gun debate to each of Colorado's state legislators. While I'm not a resident of Colorado, my family and I often vacationed there before all the anti-gun foolishness erupted. I wanted to pass along to the legislators that something akin to hell freezing over or the complete cessation of attacks on our 2nd Amendment rights would occur before we ever set foot on Colorado soil again.

    I have compiled the email addresses of all listed legislators if you'd like to do the same. Merely copy and paste the following into the address field of your email, compose a short message (perhaps detailing your refusal to visit the state or knowingly purchase goods and/or services originating from there), then send it along so that your feelings will be made known:
