Posted on 03/08/2013 1:24:39 PM PST by neverdem
Update: or is the bill really dead? The plot thickens as the Denver Post updates is original reporting, and says Sen. Heath might not have made up his mind but his Democrat colleagues insist that no, his mind is indeed made up but the Senate President says those guys are just peddling rumors:...
The controversial comments referenced by the Post include Democrat Rep. Joe Salazar suggesting that its better to arm high-strung women with rape whistles and safe zones instead of guns, so they dont freak out if they feel like youre gonna be raped and pop out that gun and you pop a round at random men. Meanwhile, Democrat senator Evie Hudak was explaining to the survivor of a brutal rape how guns are useless against sexual predators once a womans tae kwon do skills have proven ineffective. And the University of Colorado has been advising female students to repeal attackers with blood, vomit, urine, high-pitched screams, false threats of sexually transmitted disease, and passive resistance.

“...guns are useless against sexual predators once a womans tae kwon do skills have proven ineffective.”
Well, stupid. You’re supposed to use the gun first! You can judo chop him all you like after he’s dead.
FReepmail me if you want to be on or off my Colorado ping list.
I never noticed anyone with a Colorado ping list. I'm not from Colorado, but I'm trying to start a list for each state that includes a FReeper with a state ping list for that state if that state doesn't have one already.
If I see a story about Colorado, I want to let you know. This is not expected to be a high volume ping list.
Do any of you have a state ping list for Colorado? Do any of you want to volunteer and take my Colorado list with the intent to grow it? Let me know via FReepmail. Then I can work on other states.
george76 has a CO ping list.
the gun debate could stretch into the weekend.
The legislative website works pretty good for searching:
The seven laws we want defeated are:
House Bill 1228 (gun purchasers would have to pay a fee, likely $10, to cover the cost of a required background check on gun purchases)
Senate Bill 197 (new restrictions on gun ownership for people who have restraining orders and who have been convicted of a domestic violence offense)
House Bill 1229 (universal background checks)
House Bill 1224 (Magazine restrictions)
Senate Bill 196 (hold sellers and owners of assault weapons liable for damages)
Senate Bill 195 (No online CCW classes allowed)
House Bill 1226 (Banning CCW on campus)
I’ll be using that search engine to find out who votes FOR these illegal laws, and work actively to get them defeated or recalled.
I’m only in Colorado for another 30 days. After that I’ll be home in the great state of Texas!!!
The sidebar works as a good ping type list, too.
Best laugh I’ve had all day.
One thing about martial arts — you have to be in contact with or in close proximity with the attacker. A gun? Not so.
The sooner that you can inflict injury and before your attacker can inflict injury on you, the more likely that you will win.
For 2 weeks, no one I call answers their phone and voice mail is full. They don’t want to hear from us.
Thanks for the tip
I’m done calling.
I’m printing little business cards with their names and contact info on them. And how they vote.
And putting them everywhere.
Then, emailing them to tell them that I’m doing this.
We may be joining you in the coming years. Five generations of my family have lived in Colorado and I am considering leaving. This state is going down the tubes. The only thing that saved us was the Tabor amendment. Otherwise, the politicians would passing bad laws, making promises AND we’d be deep in debt.
Thanks for the link.
Please add me to it.
Universal background checks just passed a preliminary vote.
Recall is being initiated against 2 more CO Dems, John Morse and Evie Hudak.
- - - - - - - - - - -
“Anyone in the Colorado Springs area come to the Broadmoor Hotel tonight at 7pm. We’re having a meeting about beginning the recall process on John Morse and Evie Hudak.
We’ve already filed the official paperwork on Mike McLachlan and signature gathering begins next week.
We can also now take donations towards the recall efforts of these “legislators” that would destroy our freedoms.
Check out our website which contains details of the event: “
Thanks for those links. I don’t know if I can participate in a recall for a pol outside my own district but I can donate and offer encouragement. AFAIK my state sen. opposes all these gun control measures. I know my Sheriff does.
Yes, can donate to the cause to gather those signatures. I am. I think it's going to be easy to get them in each of their districts.
I know my Sheriff does.
They were in mass at the capital testifying against these laws earlier this week.
HB 13-1224, the magazine ban has now hit the CO Senate floor.
george76 has the list
I heard about that. That is very heartening. These state pols are setting up a very
dangerous and foolish situation but they're going to be on the losing end of it.
That and the background checks are the two worst ones IMO. I sure hope it is defeated but I will not comply with any of them in any case.
The R Senators are going over how many businesses this ban will effect.
I guess if Constitutional arguments won’t work, moral arguments won’t work and statistical arguments won’t work maybe the Progressives will yield to hard cash arguments. Whatever works!

Please take a moment and contact these CO State Senators and respectfully ask them to vote NO on the proposed gun control package.
This is all so disgusting. I can hardly believe that it’s happening here.
I’m at work all night. Any chance folks here could post more names of these people if they vote for any of this crap? My list is on the state FR board.
Thanks in advance.
It is still going on - HB 13-1224 mag ban. The Dems just shot down an amendment to exempt the military and veterans and it got little ugly.
DUmmie, Ballbreaker Sen Hodges insulted the military by painting a broad brush that they are all sick with PTSD.
The Dems are all sick with hatred of America.
The Rs went in the opposite directions with another amendment to pull all exemptions to the mag size ban legislation that the police and military or whoever would be limited as everyone else in Colorado and to level the playing field. The DUmmies shot that down showing their BS hypocrisy.
The debate is still going on in the senate. About 13 hours now. State Sen. Lambert said on radio this morning that the debate would likely go into next Monday.
Well, that's good. At least it will be a fight. How long will they go into the night? That's not typical is it?
I don’t know how long. Probably around midnight they will shut down until Monday. Now Sen Marble just read an email that about 15 arms business who will not do business with the state of Colorado because they are denying their citizens the same.
That would be sweet if it did.
They make US lose sleep over this crap.
Apparently “Democrat” is the Kenyan word for “Communist”.
The CO Senate is laying over House bill 1224. [Until Monday?] Moving onto 1226.
HB-1226 ‘No Concealed Carry at Colleges”
Suggesting 1226 to be laid over to May 10th. ... Motion is adopted. As I recall, May 10th is the last day in session for the CO legislature.
HB 1224 is back to being debated....
And it has been adopted by headcount.
Now moving onto Morse BS bill to sue owners/dealers/manufacturers
I hope we can get some names of those supporting punishing the innocent.
That's for sure. I have come to expect this from the FedMob but I didn't think CO would get this un-American.
With luck and strategy, we can organize and change things around here.
Now moving onto Morse BS bill to sue owners/dealers/manufacturers
That one was least worrisome to me. Unless I'm mistaken the SCOTUS has ruled against that whole concept on the even less ridiculous level of manufacturer liability alone. The Dems only look like fools for even trying that.
It turns out Morse tabled that bill since he laid it over until May 10th. The last day of assembly.
We are back to arguing against the mag ban again. :-)
I’ll be fighting this all the time on many fronts.
We will next week when the real votes happen.
Obama: voting is revenge.
