Colorado to pay piper after Dems' war on guns
World Net Daily ^ | 4/24/2013 | Jack Minor

Colorado Democrats have control of the state Senate, House and governor’s office. So this year, under pressure from the White House, they launched into a war on guns, adopting one regulation, restriction and rule after another.

Now the piper has come calling for his pay.

IF we could only find a way to help all the major players in the northeast to pull the plug and move out of there. Sadly, since most of them are huge operations, they'll most likely stay in place. I'm sure many of their employees would move although there are some that you could never pry loose with a crow bar. Kind of like "native born" kalifornians. I gotta wonder just where is that trip point that they've had enough screwing over by the state before they finally leave.

I don’t think some are all that large. Henry and Charter Arms are family operations I think. It’s probably more difficult for them considering the kind of real estate they are probably tied to.

Gun Grabbers don’t care about such marginal financial impact.

If you support the 2nd Amendment, you better learn to fight for it at the ballot box.

De Gette who did not know what a large capacity magazine was is married to a high power lawyer in DC she has a house in DC. Chickenpooper had an illegal alien employee that killed a policeman. The state lost $250M and they will not audit to find it. I have never seen such corruption in government like this.

On Friday, the sale of my acreage in Teller County closed and I received the proceeds Monday. That completely severs any and all ties I had with that state.

Criminals in business suits outlawing guns so only the street criminals will have them.

Well, Colorado... you made that bed by electing these fools, so lie in it. That state, as recently as 2004, was reliably conservative, but the infestation of Cali libs (”Caliban”) caused it to morph into a potsmoking, gun-banning, high-taxing socialist utopia.

They are not pushing high speed rail so you must be right.

WOW! Super congrats. Happy for you to be able to sell your acreage. Hopefully not to one of the green conservation groups. LOL!

Apparently the two go hand in hand. (ok’ing dope, restricting gun owners rights) Based on the big smoke in last Saturday, just like guns and booze don’t mix, guns and dope smoking don’t mix. Had they held the big smoke in after 7/1/2013 there wouldn’t have been any guns at the event. No, really. There wouldn’t. LOL!

Thanks! Nope, it went to a Real Estate broker who's going to build on it and flip it back into the market. Optimally, it'd have been better to hold onto it longer for the market to recover (it sold for about half of what it would've in 2005), but.. ah, well. We're done with that once-great state now.

Voter fraud in dirty denver is the main cause of the communists getting in.

Colofornia is now completely Californicated.
It started in the 60s when they discovered Vail & Asprin. Then took a huge leap forward when they started moving from Californicate to Colorado in the late 80s. Back then it was mostly Denver & Boulder, with Durango following like a little puppy. By 2000, with the exception of Colorado Springs, the entire Front Range was lost. By 2012, the state was no longer the Colorado, I once knew. A smarter Freeper than I tagged it right: COLOFORNIA.

So, in a round about sort of way, you will have helped create more jobs than king hussein. Thanks. Considered moving the colosprings a few years ago but thankfully got laid off instead. Weird how that worked out. Anyway..........

I knew CO was in trouble when they started to roll back TABOR and changed the laws to allow state employees to unionize.

Oh, no. I didn’t know that. Unionized state employees destroyed California. Now, they are working on destroying Colorado. It should be illegal for state employees to organize.

The downfall of a state always follows a policy of not looking for money that disappears.

Well, Douglas County is still conservative.
They no longer even have a teacher’s union in the school district.

As far as the people running Colorado think, I’m sure they’re figuring “Don’t let the door hit you on the rear on the way out. There go a bunch of GOP votes we don’t have to worry about anymore.” The loss of jobs and revenue likely doesn’t concern them much.
