So what's the big deal a couple a dollars a year in a license increase? What's the concern about firearms storage?
I get really sceptical of posts that want want you to call your congressman or senator when they only make a couple of statements and present the whole story up front.
WHAT'S THE STORY HERE? or are you just a lobbyist trying to get support for an unpopular bill?

The "big deal" about a "couple of dollars" is that terms like "a couple of dollars" to a politician are a wide-open invitation for abuse. Politicians in general, and the Colorado legislature in particular, have plainly demonstrated over the years that they are no friends of gunowners. The power to tax is the power to destroy, and they know it.

The concern about firearms storage, well, there's yet another example. More government intrusion into the daily affairs of already law-abiding citizens, as well as more avenues for incremental encroachments on our rights as time goes on. Again, not to learn from history in this regard is to suffer when it repeats itself.

The fact that the NRA-ILA advocates opposition to this bill is good enough for the majority of us who have been in the fight for a while. They are right much, much more often than they are wrong. Without their efforts and leadership, the RKBA would have been made extinct decades ago.

I don't live in Colorado. I'm just passing along a heads-up from the NRA-ILA. Do as you see fit. Good luck, Adios
