29 Round 4

Y'all know the routine by now. This link takes you to the Colorado Channel's general assembly page. Click on the senate live video (or senate live audio if you can't bear to watch but can't bear to not listen) to watch them debate HB 1229 - the universal background check bill.

Then if they re-pass it (you contacted your congresscritters and the governor didn't ya?) use that same link to hit the general assembly page and click on the house of representative live video (or audio) button, as they're supposed to take up HB 1229 the second the senate re-passes it. If, I say if, they re-pass it. (I know it's getting monotonous to read it, and trust me it's getting monotonous to type it, but call your senator and representative and urge them to vote no on HB 1229, and contact the governor to urge him to veto all the gun owner control bills that may hit his desk)

Good link to Gov. Hickenlooper below, I just used it to send and specified the mag bill as well as the transfer/registration bill and the "poll tax" on gun purchases:

"Governor, I strongly urge you to look closely at these bills and veto them.
These bills were all:
• Ill-conceived by individuals outside of Colorado with no appreciation of the impact on this state,
• drafted by people with an agenda hostile to the civil rights of lawful gun owners, and without sufficient knowledge of the subject matter and its terminology,
• hastily and poorly written,
• hustled through committees without proper consideration or reasonable debate or amendment,
• geared to controlling, harassing and punishing the law-abiding on the poor excuse that a few disturbed individuals have committed heinous acts,
• clearly ineffective at stopping any real criminal activity or preventing violence,
• poorly worded to the point that the unintended consequences will be to create a new class of felon out of law-abiding gun owners
• conducive to lengthy and costly litigation at taxpayer expense
• will immediately cost Colorado jobs in tourism, hunting and sport shooting related industries as well as manufacturing and supporting industries."


Feel free to plagiarize the above wording, no rights reserved…except my God given Civil Rights to Life, Liberty and the Purfuit of Happineff.
