    THIS is why Colorado is in the shape that it's in. You want to vote for dope and gay marriage? Then you better be ready to turn in your guns as well.

    For those of you scratching your heads as to why the Dems you voted for are now trying to take your guns, you really ought to look at the Dems party platform and your question will be answered. What? Did you really think all they wanted to do was leagalize weed, gay marriage, and easy abortions? You didn't think they were going to go after our guns again?:rolleyes:

    You would prefer more politicians with an unabashed contempt for your firearms, than some Republican with questionable judgement in how they are trying to fire up their base?:uhoh:

    I've seen some real gaffes made by the other side as well. That doesn't stop their re-election year after year. The people support them. That's it. Ultimately, whatever their elected Rep does in their name, is on the people who elected them. If the people are really that much in disagreement with their Rep now, than they ought to call for a recall election. I've seen some news on this possibly happening, but we'll know if this ever really gains any steam. Chances are it won't because the majority of the voters are too apathetic to care about this.:banghead:

    Nonsense. Freedom and liberty do not have a side, though it seems most often those on the right seem confused about that.

    Yup the ones on the left are never confused about it.

    Right now the ones on the left are trying to take away both. If you look at the list of Senators who are against the Feinstein gun grab, they almost all have an (R) by their name. Coincidence???:scrutiny:

    This isn't a bash on partys. This is just a numerical fact. More (D)'s are on the opposite side of the aisle on this one guys. If the Repubs were the ones pushing this, I'd be against them just as vehemently against them. Right now though, they seem to be the only standing up for all of our rights. (admittedly there are a few Dems in rural states that fear for their re-election prospects so they won't support this either)

    I have never voted for a democrat in my life, never will. Be careful who you accuse of what.

    On dope and gay marriage stuff? I abstained from voting on those issues, because I don't feel strongly one way or the other. Remember, you don't have to check a box next to every ballot issue or candidate. If you're ambivalent or ill-informed on an issue, just move on.

    I am pro life, but don't support overreaching personhood amendments.

    I am for limited government, but have no problem voting in favor of transparent local tax measures to better fund fire, EMS and LE. A the same time, if I have to "vote for it to see what's in it", I will always vote against it.

    I'll say this, and some will care and some won't. If we let the other side package the narrative so successfully that they can bundle opposition to gun ownership with marijuana decriminalization and gay marriage, we're going to first be marginalized and eventually defeated. Opinions on both those issues track with age, among other things, and I don't see much to suggest that trending among current 20-somethings won't shift further another generation on.

    Whatever one's opinions on gay marriage, marijuana prohibition, and other moral issues, should have nothing to do with the 2nd Amendment -- or, really, they should all be bundled into a nice big category of "things government can mind its own business about."
