BREAKING: Anti-Second Amendment Legislatorís Criminal Record Exposed ( Colorado )
Media Trackers ^ | 6th Mar 2013 | Kyle Forti

Posted on 03/06/2013 9:15:38 PM PST by george76

According to a Colorado Bureau of Investigations report obtained by Media Trackers, State Representative Rhonda Fields (D-Aurora) was arrested in 1976 on a charge of larceny and again in 1991 on a charge of shoplifting. Despite her own criminal record, Rep. Fields has sought to limit the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.

...

Fields has sponsored multiple gun control bills currently under debate in the Colorado Legislature, including legislation to ban on magazines with the capacity to hold more that 15 rounds, criminalize the private sale or transfer of a firearm without a background check,ban on concealed carry permits on the college campuses, and increase background check fees.

Fields has also co-sponsored Sen. Evie Hudak’s legislation which would not only strip anyone subject to a restraining order of their Second Amendment rights, but would also require the same to relinquish any firearms they own to the state.

Sen. Hudak has recently been in the national spotlight for remarks she made to rape survivor Amanda Collins. During testimony from Collins which detailed how her attacker was able to target her while she was unarmed due to a campus ban on concealed carry in Nevada, Hudak told Collins that “actually statistics are not on your side even if you had a gun.”

What’s so surprising about this? Criminals always favor leftist extremist so-called “gun control” to improve their odds.

Just think. Coloradans elected her BEFORE they legalized marijuana. This country is in deep trouble.

I support universal background checks for all people in or seeking public office.

She’s black. She doesn’t follow the rule of law and she’s a politician elected by blacks. She’s a Democrat and is against everything American.

My God! She just might be Obama’s long lost sister.

Sorry, folks, but in this country an arrest is not a conviction. The story only says she was arrested, twice. I would presume that since it does NOT say she was convicted, twice, that she was not convicted. When hiring someone, you are allowed to ask if the interviewee has been convicted of a crime. You are not allowed to ask for arrest records. Based on the details in the story, she is NOT a criminal.

Since this woman has lost her right to keep & bear arms, why should she care if you lose yours? Perhaps if her rights were not taken away, she might have more respect for your rights.

All free Americans should have the right to keep & bear arms, regardless of prior convictions. Those who are convicted of violent crime should never walk free again. Those who have murdered or seriously injured others should be put to death.

The gun grabbers have a good plan to disarm America: Pass so many laws criminalizing previously legal/harmless activities that no American can avoid prosecution. Once convicted, gun rights are gone, forever.

Example: We were at a park beach for a picnic & a walk with our dog. Luckily, the park entrance attendant warned us of a section of beach (turtle eggs) where walking the dog would be a CRIMINAL offense, punishable by a $10,000 fine & a year in jail. Had we mistakenly walked that section of beach with our dog, leaving nothing but footprints, we would be deprived of our right to adequate self defense for life.

That is not right!

For those of you who think some free Americans should be disarmed, there are other people that think YOU should be disarmed, too. Remember, what is good for the goose is good for the gander; or be careful what you wish for. Trite, but true.

If a person has a right, derived from God, to life, then he also has the right to defend his life from unprovoked attack, by ANY MEANS NECESSARY. The same holds true in defending your home, family, & property.

She doesn't deny the shoplifting charges, so I assume she pled down or had the record expunged after completing her sentence.

She continued her criminal behavior after that.

Rep. Rhonda Fields (D-Aurora) has previously claimed that her criminal record of larceny and shoplifting was due to a “dark” and “desperate” time in her life, public records show that her disregard for the state’s laws continued well into her tenure as an elected lawmaker. State court records reveal multiple offenses committed by Fields that were not previously reported, including at least one while holding public office at the state level.

For example, Fields pleaded guilty to writing bad checks in 1998 when she was charged by the Ft. Collins Police Department.

Her son Javad Marshall-Fields, along with his girlfriend, were ambushed and shot in their car in 2005 by drug dealers to prevent him from testifying against them.

The logical thing would be to be against gang bangers, but that would be dangerous.

Democrats in Colorado have ZERO standards.

Recall that Congressman Jared Polis (D-Boulder), featured in Peter Schweitzer's Throw Them All Out, was very actively trading on his Committee meetings relating to ObamaCare while the bill was being "crafted," calculating how which stipulations in law would affect which companies.

No Democrat in Colorado has ever expressed concern about his easily documented insider trading. Then again, the "journalists" have been very careful not to offend, as well.

Not only background checks, but spot drug testing, you know, like they do to truck drivers. The presence of illicit drugs should disqualify a congressthing from at least one session until having completed a drug detox and education program.

A second finding of illicit drugs in the bloodstream should cause the rep or senator to be permanently and immediately unseated, without appeal or remedy.

The same treatment should apply to any DWI arrests, no conviction necessary, because they are too easily plea-barganed, especially by those with the kind of power wielded by public officials.

There aren't enough black folks in all of Colorado to have elected her. The truth is that, as usual, she was elected mostly by middle class and wealthier, white feminists.

Redo of HTML/formatting for the quote.

What did you expect from a welfare queen gang banger momma?

Her piss poor parenting let her spawn join a gang and get his ass shot off.

Now this asswipe wants to blame guns instead of herself.

Expose this useless parasite and get her out of government and into a prison where she belongs.

She represents the 42nd legislative district (Colorado has 65 state representatives) which is based in Aurora, a suburb of Denver. Aurora has 325,000 people in it, making it the 3rd largest municipality in Colorado. According to wikipedia it is 15.7% Black, which would mean that Aurora could well have a “minority-majority” state House district.

That this woman ever got elected shows the absolute lunacy of affirmative action.

She claims on her website that her father was a career enlisted man in the military and mustered out at an E-9 level.

She also claims the following:

Rhonda Fields graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, Colorado, receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education in 1974, and a Master’s Degree in Psychology Counseling and Guidance in 1976. Upon graduation, she worked at the University of Northern Colorado for eight years within the division of Student Affairs.

In the late ’80s Rhonda moved to Denver and worked for the University of Denver. She was hired by United Airlines in 1986 as a Regional Training Manager, responsible for Airport Operations, Training and Development, where she continues to work to this day.


I’d say this is a good reason for those of you in Denver to fly on another airline.
