    Before you read this its meant as sarcasm mixed with "you did what".

    The ATF form 4473 specifically says that if your a pot user you are disqualified from owning a firearm or at least purchasing one. Therefore as its now legal to smoke pot in CO it either makes the 4473 and federal law at odds with state law or it means CO's state legislature have screwed up due to smoking said weed

    Wrote to our representatives

    I have now written to all my state representatives and the governor several times via old style snail mail. Are they actually listening to anyone?

    On the local level, state politicos are getting promised significant monies from national level players to be anti.

    Doubtful it made a difference; this is as generic as it gets (made me grind my teeth for a minute):

    I'd like to see Colorado's voters get it put on a ballot and shoot it down that way. It would be a long and hard fight, but THAT would have a profound effect on the rest of the country in a DIFFERENT way.

    So if you're OK mentally, you still shouldn't have "high" capacity magzines?

    Dumb. Vindicitive. Vengeful. Yes, they're punishing the innocent and those likely to stay innocent.

    I have never had the courtesy of a reply to any thing I have written to the governor, and very seldom from any of my representatives.

    Hickenlooper could care less about our letters OR these polls. "by the people for the people"? yea right.

    You know, there's another post on this forum talking about "single issue voters" and moves like this are going to FORCE that.. unfortunately, the candidates who support 2A rights *might* also bring with them a laundry list of bad policies should they be elected and that will be the fault of the gun grabbing Liberals.

    I have sent many emails over the last month to the Colorado Congress members and the Governor. I sent 3 different emails today to the Governor. Not sure it will do any good because the democrats across the nation are supporting these bills. But I tried, it is unfortunate the Colorado Congress is not supporting the people in Colorado.

    My final letter to Hick:

    I've tried the polite and reasonable appeals using logic and common sense. No more. Now I'll just remind the governor that East coast liberal money won't save him in the 2014 election if he signs these bills. Coloradoans are PISSED OFF. There is a very good chance these laws will be nullified in a number of ways after the fact, so the governor would do well to save face and veto. Signing these bills is political suicide in this state. Know that.

    Good!! But remember it will take a lot of work to make that happen. When the 2014 mid-term elections arrive there will have to be an unusually heavy vote in rural areas that support pro-gun rights candidates.

    He probably knows that. You just have to ask yourself what he was promised on a national level.

    Wake up, Coloradoans!

    Well, he will sign them in the morning. :cuss: Hope my neighbors get their state back. Legalizing pot by popular vote and passing more gun laws makes us nervous here in Nebraska. I hope there are enough conservatives in Colorado to get the gun grabbers and pot heads out of their government. :banghead:

    I just wrote a short note to Hick.

    Basically it was short and not-so-sweet.

    I wrote: "Shame on you sir. Shame."

    If the letter from Magpul's lawyer didn't sway him, then probably nothing will. (Although I doubt he read that letter - or any of the others).

    Anyone know if Hick still owns any businesses, or has any he still has controlling interest in?

    I remember some discussion earlier about recall initiatives involving state reps related to the CO gun control stuff. Is there a mechanism to call a recall vote on the governor as well?
