All these laws have done is P*SS off the law abiding.

One of the kids in the columbine shooting only had 10 round mags but he had something like 13 of them. This whole thing is just dumb. When you give someone 15 minutes to shoot victims without being stopped? "That's" the problem we should be trying to remedy along with trying to identify the nutjobs before they get this far.

People can still walk into a store and buy a semi-automatic rifle. This is window dressing.
There have been solid murmurings out there about al qaeda planning or wanting to do a Mumbai style attack on the USA.

Denver I hear gets a lot of attention by the federal government as it is US Capitol West and has been considered a target by foreign terrorist groups. I remember back in 2002 Denver International Airport was some of the first in the country to get the new FAA security badges and security system. I went through the process with fingerprints and the whole deal with a background check. It was said when they did that for those that worked at DIA, they dug up 2 al qaeda slugs they had been looking for. Both were taxi drivers at the airport and were Somali nationals illegally in the country.

We know our southern border is porous and anyone willing can get anyone and anything over that border.

So while unlikely, much like an attack like 9/11 was but still happened, what if the Mumbai scenario does happen and we get attacked again? Let's say hypothetically 20 al qaeda tards decide to hit Boulder. So everyone is going to sit and wait for the police to get it together while these 20 guys are on the rampage? Denverian will have his Starbucks faire trade coffee mug ready to throw, dave barnes will have his "it's all good" bolt action .22 with one round artisan4 special designed "anti slaughter magazine" and I'll be in Pennsylvania with my G3, FAL, 300 Blackout M-4, Benelli and Glock.

What I would rather do is have a situation with a Swiss like mentality. Train, prepare, be armed and act as a deterrent to such an act, or for instance an act like these mass shootings that have occurred.

Again I'll point out how most of these mass shootings happen in "gun free" zones. 9/11 happened in a "gun free" zone.

If they happened in "guns aplenty" zones they would hardly rate a mention in the media because the perp would not last and be able to walk around with impunity doing his dirty deed.

They don't impact nutjobs that want to shoot up schools either. It's fluff and nothing more. Some Politician wants to be remembered and that's about all this boils down to.

DO SOMETHING and they have. Even though it prevents zero mass shootings.

Why would they hit Boulder? They have so many allies there.

I'd guess Boulder is where a good percentage of my neighbors here moved to

The banners take this as some type of "victory" as mental as that is? Anyone can still buy the scary black gun they are hiding under their bed over. It's just plain old fashioned dumb. 15 round mags duct taped back to back is still 30 rounds.

Looks like some people have had enough of this gun control idiocy. I'm glad to see that there is still some sanity in Colorado!

If the recall happens or when he comes up election, I'll be sending a check to John Moron's opponent to contribute to the fight to get him out of office. He believes he is some sort of untouchable dictator, rather than an elected representative who represents his constituents.

Well, assuming you aren't in favor of the new gun laws, I am a brand new citizen of Colorado and will be voting against anyone who helped pass these laws, so my husband and I will take your place.

That said, I live in Parker, and I believe that all my State reps are conservatives and unlikely to have voted for any of them. There is still 2014, though.

Limit the government and police magazines too and we'll talk. The "peasants" in Syria are a current example of determined civilians standing up to a totalitarian government. There have been many others.
