From Washington Times:
After a week of committee hearings where last–minute rescheduling games and opponents of gun control laws were barred from testifying against the legislation, the state of Colorado sinks further into the mire of moonbat politics. The State House of Colorado will convene this week and probably pass four gun control laws that will strip residents of Colorado of their right to bear arms, despite the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and the state constitution of Colorado.
The four laws are:
House Bill 1224 – Bans magazines with a capacity greater than fifteen rounds.
House Bill 1226 – Repeals current law allowing individuals with a concealed carry permit to carry a firearm for self-defense on a college or university campus.
House Bill 1228 – Imposes a “gun tax” for a background check when purchasing a firearm.
House Bill 1229 – Criminalizes the private transfer of a firearm without consent.
Additional gun control bills will be initiated by the State Senate this week. This comes on the heels of the horrible Aurora mass murder at a movie theater where a schizophrenic gunman killed 12 people and injured 58.
This comes from one of TWO states in the union that have legalized recreational use of marijuana. Apparently the good people of the state of Colardo have forgotten that tyrants always prefer unarmed peasants.
