EXPLOITING NEWTOWN: Anti-Gun Push in Colorado
Updated information on anti-Second Amendment bills in the 2013 Colorado Legislature:
We can expect 14 to 20 anti-gun bills. The current Democrat package includes:
● A ban on an undetermined number of semi-automatic firearms (No grandfather clause)
● A ban on magazines of over ten rounds (No grandfather clause).
● Making an individual with a violent misdemeanor a "prohibited person" re: gun ownership.
● A ban on private sales by requiring universal background checks.
● A waiting period on background checks that will kill gun shows.
● Rollback of concealed carry on college campuses.
● More strict enforcement of gun confiscation related to restraining orders
● Wider use of mental health treatment information for gun control purposes
Published reports indicate that rabid, anti-gun, millionaire, New York City Mayor Bloomberg is sending a well funded team to Colorado to push gun control.
RINOs associated with SAFE Colorado will provide "bipartisan support" for gun control.
