Yes, please repost to as many people as humanly possible.
Right now, the update from Magpul is that we need 2 more votes to turn the corner and they are lobbying hard for them.
My goal is to send ALL the reps at least 20 emails today. I'm sure phones are nearly unreachable.
Yes, and same situation with the M&P9, SD9VE, XD and XDm, Beretta M92...basically any pistol that has a 16+ magazine.
I doubt that all manufactures would simply just provide Colorado with reduced capacity mags if they are not already tooled for manufacture.
Like California...it is an arbitrary ban on many popular pistols.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE - see the easy 'copy and paste' email list of CO House reps and send an email or two...or 50. We are in the last hour here.
I have the laptop here in the living room and am trying to hit every member of the CO house with an email today.
The ijits are digging their own political graves.
1) Magazine restrictions- pisses off any thoughtful gun owner and immediately impacts tactical shooters, 3 gunners, some CCW holders (people like me who carry G17 mags as reloads for their Glock 19)
2) CCW ban in public university buildings - Pisses off CCW advocates. Represents one of the few regressive policies in CCW I have heard of.
3) Universal Background checks - pisses off a lot of gun owners of all stripes, it might take a year for Johnny hunts-a-lot to realize it when he wants to sell a gun to a buddy.
4) Makes gun buyers pay for their useless state background checks - my favorite, a kick in the nuts for every gun owner in the state. Just in case they managed to find the Fuddiest guy evar who didnt care about the other policies, they just kicked all gun people in the wallet just so they can exercise an intrinsic right.
Combine this with Magpul leaving and the Democratic party runs the risk of losing their hold on the state in two years. The dems are banking on Colorado being an example that gun control can fly in the western US. I wonder how it will look when they lose the state again. Oh the granola eaters out here are going to howl when it happens. There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Having read the proposed legislation, it raises more questions than it answers. More than 15 round magazines need to be in your possession as of the effective date (sometime this summer). Since most magazines have no date or number, not sure how you can identify which magazine, of your many, was a pre-July 2013 magazine versus an otherwise undated, identically looking magazine? Someone traveling thru the state is supposed to know which magazines are legal, and which not, looking at an unmarked magazine?
Also, the TTAG article is incorrect. The bills will face their final vote in the Colorado House on Monday (Friday they passed their second reading), so there is still time to contact members of the House.
ETA: The TTAG article isn't incorrect, it just isn't clear on the fact that the bills still face an additional vote on Monday in the House.
