You rightists never meet a fetus you didn't love, or a live baby you could care less about. Every baby that can possibly be born, must be born. If you have to, drag pregnant women into the delivery room, tie them down and force them to give birth rapist's babies. Because we all know that rapist's babies are a gift from god.

But once the babies are born, they are on their own. If the baby happens to get shot and killed in your violent gun culture, thats just the price that has to be paid for the Second Amendment. Because your gun rights are more important then a child's life. After its born anyway.
Seriously? What does this have to do with anything.

You Lefties have never met a criminal who you feel deserved to be blamed. It's always an outside factors fault. Unless he's a white male or a wealthy hard working American of course, all white males and the wealthy are pigs. (See I can add pathetic un-related comments too)

Come on, really? You think these asinine gun laws are going to prevent any more kids from being shot.

Say what you want about Liberals, or Conservatives. Anyone who thinks this new cartridge limit will change anything is plain stupid.

Oh wait I guess it will affect Colorado's tourism and wildlife services and our state's economy in a negative way, but as long as fewer bullets are available at least we can't blame any more mentally ill criminals for murdering. It's the gun that kills not the shooter of course, right?

Getting us back on topic, here's an article about sportsmen who vow to boycott Colorado. Perhaps the impact will not be greatly noticed at the state level, but it seems like a lot of small businesses in the rural parts of the state may suffer.

The Democrats' folly this legislative session will go down as truly historic. This state simply feels like a conservative pressure cooker, with Democratic legislators being recalled and ballot initiatives planned for 2014. The president's popularity is sliding and 2014 could look a lot like 2010. With the recent developments in Colorado, the scope of the conservative backlash will only be magnified.

I'm ashamed of what our government has done, but I'm incredibly excited at the growing prospects of a tremendous conservative renaissanse in Colorado.

My impression was that data shows that general concept is not true.

Who are all these madmen and criminals? I've lived in the Washington, DC area, been in parts of D.C. that are not very savory, and lived in the third world for a couple of years. Not once have I ever been threatened by madmen or criminals of the sort you're talking about.

Are you saying morality all comes down to money?

I own a home in the Mountain Shadows neighborhood of COS. It was not burned to the ground June of last year. Therefore, by your "reasoning" the Waldo Cyn fire never happened.

Those damn liberals are taking over this state..lol I pulled the lever for a few republicans in my day(was once probably more conservative than these right winger loons posting on here now) and than I stopped drinking koolaid....those days is dunzo....welcome to the the new Colorado. I hear Arizona and Texas is still hillbilly country. Why don't you conservatives give that a go..welcome to the new California..GET USED TO IT OR LEAVE!!!!!!!!!!!! My patience has worn thin with people trapped in the 50's. If anyone in their right mind beyond the gun control issue thinks they can continue to control what's coming which is pure unadulterated free thinking and a more tolerant liberal Colorado. They are about to see the fit hit the shan. Been deeply on both sides of the fence seen more even at the age of 46 guaranteed than 99.9% of the jackwagons on this site..if you wanna talk mad hillbillly hit the road.the days of blowing so called patriotic hatwind up peoples a$$es in the name of religion or so called morality you might as well get it over with..and before you do..read a book called What's the matter with Kansas.

Wow, that's an asinine conclusion. I shared an article relevant to the topic and some thoughts that I believe the laws will hurt a lot of small business owners in rural parts of the state. Read the article and draw your own conclusion, but don't put words in someone else's mouth in order to make a point. That is pure intellectual laziness.
