Idiocies in the Gun Control Debate

There are a few of us (although I'm not sure there are any left in the Denver-Boulder area), but if we don't take back at least one house of the state legislature, I'm out of here. It used to be that there weren't many liberals outside of Denver, Boulder, and Pueblo, and even in the rural/mountain areas where there some Dems, there were more likely to be pretty (the 'blue-dog' variety) on a lot of issues--like gun control. The real political divide in this state used to be the front range v the rest of the state, not Dems v GOP. Where I live, most of the Dems (excluding the transplants from CA and the East Coast) are livid over the new gun laws. There are a lot of recall petitions starting up, including one for the governor.

Gun owning democrats are no more impressed with this BS than we conservatives are, this is not a Party position as a whole it is only the position of those in elected office who are having their campaign coffers filled by Obama and Bloomberg. They don't care if it's right or wrong, they don't care what their constituents want, they don't care if it's legal or illegal, they simply want those huge campaign contributions they've been promised for blindly passing these laws in Democrat controlled states, because 'the party' said too.

Recall isn't good enough for them, tar and feathers, mass lynching, firing squad, these are things that are probably more appropriate.

Our government says it absolutely cannot keep track of its own borders or the 12 million people who live here illegally, but, it absolutely can keep track of the purchases, transfers, and components of hundreds of millions of guns and gun owners. It’s hell bound determined to try.

It would be prudent to distrust the priorities and intentions of such a government and astute to pay attention to its inevitable idiocies.
