    If not for Denver, Colorado would be one of the safest, sanest places in the nation. It's still a great state, mind, but Denver is definitely determined to be the Los Angeles of the Rocky Mountains.

    I'm getting the jitters cuz I'm worried that places will start posting "no guns" signs. I fully support the right of private property owners to do so, but I hope our side is ready with the same sort of boycott campaign that has worked well in other states after they went shall issue. I for one will not hesitate to let businesses know why they are losing me as a customer, and that I've been CCW peacefully for several years in their establishment. But I hope RMGO does something that will make it easier for the more timid to complain, and that will allow us to present a united front.

    Hello, Dan Morris!

    I'll take your word for it. I go to Denver when it's unavoidable, but doubt I'd feel safe even with a .357 magnum close to hand. It seems to be a city in dire need of adult supervision.

    Gives rise to "jitters?" Is that anything like "shingles" or "scurvy?"

    I love this: "Several other states, including Kansas and Wisconsin, did not even try because of threatened vetoes."

    We haven't even started yet here in WI because we're waiting for a state supreme court decision that will likely shoot down some or all of the existing prohibition on concealed carry.

    Other than getting a few facts wrong, the writer did get some things right. For example, he spelled "Wisconsin" correctly. :barf:

    Man this is a HOOT!

    I wonder if Mr. Frangos' "no fighting" signs have worked at his establishment. Isn't fighting already against the law?

    I think carrying concealed weapons in a bar was also illegal before the new concealed carry laws were passed. AND concealed carry in bars is also illegal under the NEW concealed carry laws. So why does Mr. Frangos think the new laws are going to increase illegal carry in his bar?!!!!

    :confused:

    Under prior and/or present law, CCW with a permit in a bar is legal in Colorado. It's only illegal to be in possession of a weapon while "under the influence."

    And "under the influence" is determined by what criteria???

    Better be the designated driver if you have to shoot somebody in self defence!

    Two or three drinks in em' and they "become irrational" huh?

    Is that all it takes to get drunk nowadays?

    I'm on my 6th beer in the past two hours and I feel just fine!

    Just as much good as the "No serving the visibly intoxicated" signs.
    Denver is great to visit.... if you're armed. Ever been to LODO after a Rockies game? I go up several times a year.... Stayed in a hotel up there... needed to get cream for the AM coffee (the girl, you know) went to the closest place.. what a hole! Now, don't take offense or anything, but it was FULL of WM's, DD's and HB'ers, as well as a few bangers, loiterers filling the parking lot. Buying beer and lotto tickets.
    Arm thyself!

    . . . . and the blood will be just floooooooowing in the streets. :uhoh: And I love it every time some newspaper quotes the Brady Bunch, as if they are this impartial group that has no agenda whatsoever.

    I agree with what has been said on these boards in the past. If a business posts a 'no firearms' sign, they quickly and easily show me who should be boycotted.

    Too bad there is not a "No Blathering Idiots" law. Would take acre of about half of congress, 75% of the media, and average 90+% for **********, ILL, MD, & NJ...:evil:

    "The sky is falling! The sky is falling!", said Chicken Little to no one in particular.

    The mommies and scaredy cats of the world are worried. Blood in the streets?

    Hardly.

    Prudent people concerned with their own well being? Take a class, go thru the process, get a license (pay another tax) to exercise your right to keep the king of england outta your face?

    As in all things, Time will tell.

    Adios

    Has anyone ever written to these idiots 3 or 4 years AFTER the fact, and asked them what was wrong when the peons DIDN'T start having shootouts over traffic accidents? This "bloodbath" scenario is repeated in every state that passed CCW laws, and I haven't heard of a single "bloodbath" yet; wouldn't they like a chance to explain why they were wrong about their previous predictions?
