If this does not, or has not effected your state, be prepared. Don’t just say “I’m not going to that state.” STAND TOGETHER. Support fellow gun owners.
After six hours of debate yesterday the Colorado house has passed a bill restricting magazine capacity on a voice vote. The recorded vote will be on Monday. They are now debating universal background checks. Read more about it HERE
How will this affect our economy here in Colorado?
According to sources, Magpul has already announced that if this bill passes, they will move their business, employing over 600 Colorado citizens. Numerous outdoorsmen, fishermen, skiers, hikers and hunters have also announced that they will “boycott” the state and hunt in Wyoming or Montana rather than support the state. It is surprising that Colorado would hastily pass these bills when we greatly depend on hunters and tourism.
I asked the question yesterday about where is the education requirement in all of this. I did know the answer, but here is a synopsis a friend gave, which I feel it is right on point.
“I have your answer, Mia. It is because they don’t care one bit about the citizens. This has nothing to do with saving lives or preventing injury. If that were the case, they would be trying to find a way to deal with the mental health problems, the gang problems, the REAL causes of deaths in this country. But it isn’t about protecting and saving lives. It is about control. Not gun control, but citizen control. It is about making it so we cannot defend ourselves from them. It is about violating the constitution and knowing that we will not stand for it so they are taking away our ability to defend ourselves.”
I feel that our government is cramming all this legislation so fast that people’s heads will spin when they wake up, slaves, and realize what happened. Many think it is kind and caring while they don’t even realize the consequences. How could it be a good thing if when they are cramming it through via voice vote late on a Friday afternoon? Then they will do the actual vote Monday. They do this so it doesn’t make the new cycle. People won’t call to express their opinions because they are a weekend away.
Bottom line – We need to keep fighting. You are happy that I keep calling and I keep writing letters, but what are you doing? How are you protecting your children?
WE NEED YOU to stand united in this monumental fight and COME TO THE HOUSE GALLERY on Friday, February 15th to hold your state Representative accountable by making sure they vote NO on these restrictive bills.
Session will convene at 9:00 a.m. on Friday. Please make plans to arrive no later than 8:30 a.m. to ensure a seat. If you are unable to attend session, please call AND e-mail your state Representative using the contact information.
The NRA thanks you for your dedication to this cause so far. We cannot win this fight without your help. Please stay tuned to nra-ila for further updates and information.
