    The federal background check does not equal registration, except that there might be (depending on whether the government obeys the law, which is like being asked to believe the devil is a choirboy) registration of gun owners. But the Maryland "background check" provides the state with gun information and is absolutely registration, even though the state has lied about it on numerous occasions.

    The federal background check requires dealers to keep a copy of the 4473, record the sale in their bound book and turn those records over to the ATF when they go out of business. It is decentralized registration; but it is certainly registration.

    Well, after recovering from anesthesia, I awoke to find that all 4 bills passed the Colorado House. CCW on campus, banned, UBC, magazine limits, and fees for UBC passed and are all going to the Senate. What a sad day for Colorado.

    This really shows their true evil intent. Trained, licensed citizens on campus can (and have) prevented mass shootings, not to mention other violent crimes. These politicians want to ban legal campus carry. Therefore my only logical conclusion is they wish to increase violent crime on campus and to increase the probability of a successful mass shooting, most like as a way to further their anti-gun agenda. Disgusting.

    What happens if someone gets caught with a handgun at a college, has a license, under this new bill? Is it a criminal offense?

    Yes, the bills now go to the Senate where they will be debated and maybe changed yet again. It ain't over yet in Colorado. I hope people were listening when 1224's sponsor said that these were just part of what is coming in the way of bills and then laws.

    HR13-1224 and 1229

    This is the letter I sent to my state senator, John Morse, pointing out the absurdities of these two bills.

    I would like to call your attention to provisions in the above named bills.

    In HR13-1229, sections 1 (6) (d) (I and II) allow for the temporary transfer of a firearm in a private home, but only if an imminent danger of death or injury exists. That is, if you were to visit my home and admire a firearm that I legally own, and if I (after properly checking clear on the firearm, of course) would let you hold the firearm, we would both be guilty of a misdemeanor. If fact, if another member of my family were to hold that firearm, it would be a crime unless I first make to them a "bona fide gift" of it. Do you not find this absurd?

    In HR13-1224, sections 1 (2) (a) (i and II) allow a person who owns a large-capacity magazine on the effective date of the law to keep it, but only if he "maintains continuous possession of the large-capacity magazine." Continuous means that if I had a large-capacity magazine on the effective date, as soon as I placed it into a safe or some other location, I would no longer be in possession of it. When I picked it up again, I would commit a crime. Do you not find this absurd?

    As your constituent, and a constant (if not continuous) voter, I urge you to vote against these bills. As law, they would do nothing to curb crime but would cause problems for law-abiding citizens.

    Don't even consider believing that Hickenlooper is on the fence. He has lied to us once after Aurora, just to save the election. He doesn't sign these after the hit his desk he's done in the (D) party. Either way he goes, he's probably done as governor in 2014. It could only further his career to sign them.
