    I'm in. I sent one, and mentioned that I used to work as a cop in CO, and mentioned that similar guns have been in civilian hands for over 60 years (prior and after WWII) by fathers and grandfathers, and the problem is not with the guns.

    Sent to the Governor yesterday

    Governor, you sounded pretty nervous on the radio this morning. You know the legislation clearing both Houses and headed your way don't make a constructive difference in preventing or mitigating violence to a statistically significant degree. All this has to be about campaign money and political power. I pray it isn't about confiscation - as is clearly the focus of other prominent Democrats across the country. If you sign any new gun control legislation into law then I'll have to believe you're not acting in response to Colorado's majority opinion and beliefs, you'll be acting for power and money. Funny, that - a Party that doesn't pass a Federal Budget, is regularly documented as being the least transparent in modern times (if not in our entire history), plays frightening brinkmanship games with 5 carriers in port at once and releases thousands of illegal immigrants - you even consider following the Party line on gun control? I persist in my belief you are intelligent and honorable as you sit as Governor. I wish you well and hope you will not change the face of our State to try and mirror New York and California.

    The part G.H. doesn't get is that even if the "the majority wants it!" mantra is accurate, responsible leaders do not let the 51% oppress the 49%, 70/30, etc. Of course, that doesn't threaten re-election which is all they seem to care about, too.

    thank you everyone who is writing.

    I know it may seem like a futile effort at times, but I thank you for the attempt nonetheless.

    79.88% OPPOSE this ban and would vote to overturn it. Everyone on this board should chime in, and then some.. set that poll on fire!

    I just voted, and our side is now over 80%...

    However the poll questions are badly written, in that you vote "for" to oppose the bill and the magazine ban. Somebody at the Post messed up badly. :evil:

    To all of you who've taken a few minutes to go to the website and contact Hickenlooper to voice your opposition to these bills, you have my gratitude.

    To those of you who are naysaying the work and time it takes to fill out an online form, please just go away. We need to pursue every avenue available to make our voices heard, and shooting down other people's actions without offering a positive solution of your own is of absolutely no help to anyone whatsoever.

    No vacation travel to CO if he signs it to hike, ski, or ride.

    No business travel to CO if it can be carried out by telecon.

    Second message sent, addressing the unintended consequences of "readily convertible" wording. I also placed a short phone call to the governor's office today. I'm not a political activist, but this is important; everyone should be doing at least one of these things. The link has been posted numerous times, but I haven't seen the phone number:

    303-866-2471

    80%+ on such an emotional issue is seriously impressive for a DP poll.... this is not a self-selecting pro-2A, republican, etc. website, this is our liberal-print-monopoly (RIP RMN).

    Done. I don't what difference it will make, but it can't be worse than doing nothing.
