Colorado To Limit Rounds In Magazines

Colorado is to introduce a limit on the rounds allowed in  magazines and new regulations regarding firearms checks. The state will now require full background checks for anyone wanting to purchase a firearm giving it some of the toughest firearms regulation in the United States. The checks would apply to all gun purchases including private sales. Such sales would require the purchaser to pay for their own background check. Those purchasing on line will also require full background checks which it is thought the purchaser will again have to pay for. The House also approved a ban on concealed carry at college campuses and sports stadiums.

Colorado has the dubious distinction of being the state where two gun massacres have taken place. It joins other states that have limited the size of the magazines allowed for sale. The magazine restriction would limit magazines to a maximum of 15 rounds for all firearms except shotguns which will be limited to 8 rounds.

Republicans have come out in force against the ruling citing a restriction of their Second Amendment rights that guarantees the right to bear arms.

“This bill will never keep evil people from doing evil things”

Said republican Representative Jerry Sonnenberg. Republican Representative Jim Wilson joined the debate saying:

“Do not disarm our young people in general and our young women in particular on our college campuses in the name of a gun-free zone”

The debate highlights the opposing views of Democrats and Republicans on the issue of gun control in the US.

    More idiots taking away the rights of the law-abiding. They know it won’t do any good. It’s never been about crime. It’s always been about disarming and controlling the people.

  • Doug

    Absolute idiocy. Just don’t limit the amount of trans fats in the pot-smoking Coloradans snack bags!

    • OldGuy

      Oh come on Doug. Dont tell me you frown on idiocy then then fail to see the idiocy of cannabis prohibition. I know alot of hard working, honest, libertarian pot smokers that are sick and tired of the governments BS concerning gun prohibition and limitations on personal freedoms.

      You stereotyping responsible cannabis users is just as bad as the liberals stereo typing responsible gun owners. Using either recklessly is dangerous but the majority dont so why punish everyone?

        Sorry if I mis-read your point. I am ina funk today so anything is possible. ;)

    The best thing about these bills? They are motivating Americans to purchase arms and arm accessories at the highest rate ever. The bid to disarm Americans is only accelerating the rate at which they arm themselves. And the crooks? Well, they don’t follow laws so they’ve always been armed with the best.

    This is like taking away licenses from people who drive sober. They weren’t the problem to begin with, and the drunk drivers will still drink and drive, even without a license.

    Can anyone say “HEIL HITLER ??”
    DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW

    TITLE 18, U.S.C., SECTION 242

    Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or
    custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, … shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnaping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

    Summary:

    Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color
    of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected
    by the Constitution or laws of the United States.
    For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful
    authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful
    authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or
    pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. Persons
    acting under color of law within the meaning of this statute include police
    officers, prisons guards and other law enforcement officials, as well as
    judges, care providers in public health facilities, and others who are
    acting as public officials. It is not necessary that the crime be motivated by animus toward the race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin of the victim.

    The offense is punishable by a range of imprisonment up to a life term, or the death penalty, depending upon the circumstances of the crime, and the resulting injury, if any.

    Therefore, it would appear that the meaning of the word “legal” is
    “color of law,” a term which Black’s Law Dictionary, Fifth Edition, page 241, defines as:

    Color of law. The appearance or semblance, without the substance, of legal right. Misuse of power, possessed by virtue of state law and made possible only because wrongdoer is clothed with authority of state, is action taken under “color of law.”

    These people in Colorado have raised stupidly to the level of an art form! Two massacres and they have not learned a thing! All those good people & children Died because of stupidity, YOUR CHILDREN ARE BEING SET UP AGAIN . Do not believe me ask any Military man police man any trained professional. When you confine a large group of helpless people in a small area deprive them of the ability to protect themselves give them no protection, advertise this fact to the entire world so that every nut knows were to find them put up signs so they can not possibly miss the school . Those professionals will say no one in there right mind would do that!! They would be correct! If you were very stupid the first time you might say you did not know any better. Not possible any more.What is it they call some one(s) who willfully& knowingly set up little children to be murdered ? WAKE UP!!!!
