Colorado: National Gun Ban Advocates Seek to Make Colorado Their Top Priority for the 2013 Session

Colorado: National Gun Ban Advocates Seek to Make Colorado Their Top Priority for the 2013 Session

Governor John Hickenlooper, a former member of a national anti-gun group called Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) founded and funded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, was just recently joined by thirteen mayors in Colorado to coordinate with President Obama to help pass gun control measures here in Colorado and nationally.

Governor Hickenlooper has also gone on the offensive when it comes to gun control by making statements just this past week that the “time is right” to consider stripping away your gun rights this next session.

Earlier this year in an ABC interview, just after the terrible tragedy in Aurora, Governor Hickenlooper was skeptical that tougher gun laws would have prevented such a disaster. He stated, in part:

“This wasn’t a Colorado problem [referring to Colorado gun laws]… He [James Holmes] would have found explosives. He would have found something else. Some sort of poisonous gas. He would have done something to create this horror.”

Governor Hickenlooper’s statement on ABC was heartfelt and realistic in its approach, which was appreciated by not only those suffering families in Colorado but by families across this country. This is the same heartfelt and realistic approach that the NRA has always and continues to take in the days since the tragedy in Aurora and more recently in Newtown, Connecticut.

As we know all too well, there are those in Colorado and across the country who do not support the Second Amendment the way you and I do. They choose to take an impulsive approach to these situations that could end up harming more law-abiding citizens in the process.

Those anti-gun extremists are looking to Colorado as a “guinea pig” to push through ineffective and illogical gun control laws at the state level; those that have proven to be failures in other states, and solely affecting and punishing law-abiding citizens.

There has already been serious discussion by some Democrats in the Colorado General Assembly to ban commonly-owned semi-automatic rifles, ban “high capacity magazines,” ban online sales of ammunition, restrict private sales and reverse the state Supreme Court ruling on Campus Carry. These misguided views are an affront to our constitutional rights as law-abiding citizens.

The battle to protect our gun rights that lies before us in this next legislative session in is one unlike we have ever seen. As gun owners, sportsmen and supporters of the Second Amendment, we urge you to contact Governor John Hickenlooper and your state legislators to respectfully express your opposition to restrictions to your lawful gun rights.

Governor John Hickenlooper can be reached by e-mail or telephone at (303) 866-2471. Contact information for your state legislators can be found here.

  • Just another sick set-up by military intelligence by proxy in order to aid the future confiscation of guns either by force or by color of law (fiction) statutes and legislation. Hillary Clinton cannot wait to remove all the guns from the United States for the United Nations World Marxist dictatorship state coming shortly. Once again nothing more than Ordo-Ab-Chao commanded by the Valley of Dallas, Scottish Rite for the takeover and destruction of the United States. Barry Soetoro aka Obama gave his pathetic acting and crocodile tears after his intelligence operations commit the crime for the problem-solution-reaction(gun control). How many times have we found out that these so-called lone gunmen events have turned out to be multiple gunmen? During the U.S. Election Obama made out he was against gun grabbing except for assault weapons. This was to aid and veil himself for the coming future events like this they have planned. So when they attempt to hinder guns in the U.S. even further the majority of the people will not lay blame solely at Obama’s feet. They know what they have planned and work to this plan which always deceives the people constantly. All in time for the acceptance of the UN Arms Treaty.
