GLENWOOD SPRINGS Colorado residents are exercising their Second Amendment rights in record numbers.
Gun sales surged to a new high before President Barack Obama took office in January 2009. One year later, gun sales surpassed the record set in 2008, despite the recession's strong grip.
According to data from the Instacheck Unit of CBI, the office that handles statewide background check requests for any firearm transaction, the office approved 196,980 total background checks in 2008. In 2009, CBI approved 202,613, about half of which were handgun sales

My guess in Colorado will be a GOP pickup in 2010. Hopefully they are running a conservative.

I’ve been stocking up on ammo. Did Echelon pick that up for Napolitano, Hussein, and Pelosi? I hope so. Conservatives need to be ready if Civil War II breaks out. If we take the House and Senate back in 2010, armed struggle might not be necessary.

I'm buying more guns than ever, but since I got my C&R license last year I don't have to go through the CBI check, so you can a few more guns to that 2009 number! Here's the latest acquisition, a Beretta model 1915 1919 in 99% condition:

IOW- CBI updated their database 202,613 times with people exercising their 2nd Amendment right.
