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.

You are still being awfully evasive in giving a straight answer to the questions asked here. Give some specifics if you really know any. Your responses also sound very PARANOID, and to blindly follow this just because it is supported by the NRA says that you can't think for yourself. If the NRA said it was a good idea to jump off a tall building would you blindly follow?
Don't get me wrong I strongly believe in gun ownership and 2nd ammendment rights. I just want to know the whole story.
