Last week I urged more than a dozen personal acquaintances and Colorado gun owners to get involved: http://www.thehighroad.org/showthrea...18#post8762318 Fifteen in all. So far none have bothered to simply send out an email. Here's a paraphrase of several conversations that I've had lately with business colleagues, employees, and general acquaintances. When I follow up with them the conversations go almost exactly like this... CoRoMo: Have you contacted anyone in the Senate from the list that I sent you? Other: No. I don't want to be getting a bunch of emails back from them and I'd probably end up on some sort of terrorist watch list if I sent them an email. CoRoMo: The law would prohibit you from ever acquiring, giving, receiving, buying, or selling any of your AR mags to anyone or from anyone ever again. Other: That won't stop me. I'll just drive to Raton, NM / Cheyenne, WY and buy them anyway and say I owned them before the law went in. CoRoMo: You won't be able to loan or borrow a firearm except while hunting, or from immediate, blood relatives outside your home or theirs according to law. Other: There's no way they will find out. I'll do it anyway. CoRoMo: You won't be able to buy or sell firearms between friends or family at all according to law. Other: They will never know. I'll do it anyway and we'll just say that the gun was bought/sold before the law went in. This represents 100% of the conversations that I've had lately. Nobody seems at all concerned about the looming legislation, although they are all opposed to it passing. It may appear that they disregard the rule of law by simply remarking that they will violate it since it is unenforceable, but these people ARE law abiding, honest people. The new laws would make them criminals and they would rather violate the laws then, rather than to get involved now. I chalk the law breaking remarks up to nothing more than 'locker-room talk', sarcastic bravado and macho chest-beating in that they are just trying to brush off the stakes at hand. Same goes for the remarks I've heard about being put on a government list; I don't know if it is truly something that keeps a lot of these people from sending a simple email to a member of the Colorado Senate, or just a line they are feeding me to leave them alone about it. EVERY TIME we get to talking about the gun control that's coming, I ask, "Did you email anyone in the legislature?" and I'm basically told "No, there's no use". I feel like the one, lone gun owner amongst all these guys who's pained by the actions of the legislature. None of them are even following along! So what can you tell me? What else should I be saying/doing?
