    Just one more reason to say gun owners should not be law abiding.

    Sure, they were voted out in Colorado in a recall election - and then replaced by two more dems who will, no doubt, pursue exactly the same kinds of legislation. How many more of the original legislators who helped push through the GC legislation, whose names never appeared on a recall, are still in power there? The legislation is still on the books, and Hickenlooper was re-elected, which will be interpreted as a mandate to continue the push for more gun control. Bloomberg was right: even though a couple of legislators were sacrificed like pawns, gun control still won in Colorado.

    So what, exactly, was REALLY accomplished in Colorado? The status quo ante was quickly re-established after what will be perceived by many as a momentary hissy fit thrown by the pro-Second Amendment crowd.

    EDITED:

    In fact, not only did Coloradans vote in two new Dems, one of the two, Michael Merrifield, was a former Bloomberg staffer! http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/p...ates/19785161/

    Look at NYS. Cuomo introduced and forced a vote on the Safe Act overnight. He threatened the coffers of anyone who resisted him and the cowards cowered.
    .
    New York residents get a bad rap for not fighting for their rights. NYC decides our laws. They control our vote. Well, we went to the state capital, 7,000 strong, and it did nothing. Cuomo and the dem controlled assembly laughed at us.

    Perhaps starting an initiative to eliminate initiatives?

    AMEN brother! The general public should never be trusted with the authority to create and pass new laws. The initiative system should only allow the people to force the legislature as a whole to vote on the proposed law eliminating the possibility of the bill to die in committee.
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.
