Outdoor Channel Blacklists Colorado Over Gun Control Laws
Godfather Politics ^ | 3/12/13 | da Tagliare

Posted on 03/13/2013 10:34:16 AM PDT by Nachum

Living in the Southwest for most of my life, I’ve seen just how many people go to Colorado to hunt, fish, ski, hike, camp and sight see. Combined together, these activities generate millions of dollars for businesses as well as the state government.

Yet, the controlling Democrats are willing to lose a large portion of that revenue and place many businesses in jeopardy, just to push Obama’s anti-gun policies. A couple of major businesses are already looking to relocate out of the state because of the recently passed and newly proposed anti-gun laws.

I’ve always loved Colorado, and during my yearly cross-country trips, I’d make efforts to stop at all the various historic sites. It turns my stomach more than I can express that this state with its great rugged westerny heritage has now become an Obama-voting, gun-grabbing, hippie dopehead “blue state.”

On my future trips, I’ll now be bypassing Colorado entirely to either the north or the south.

This is what happens when a NORMAL State becomes “Californicated”.

Good, let them all leave. CO can be a “gun free zone”. Let’s see how high crime will sky rocket if they pass these laws.

People and businesses are going vote with their feet because of gun rights, taxes, 0-care and a whole host of other liberty issues. Unfortunately a great western state like CO is on tract to become a Leftist wasteland given enough time. Conservatives need to aggregate in conservative states to form an effective resistance to the Leftist tyranny.

Go hunt in South Dakota.
More game and the locals will treat your better and appreciate your visiting them more.

—believe me, they should have closed the gate right after I arrived in Leadville in 1960—nothing has happened since that was positive-—

I have been crossing Illinois from east to west for years without stopping to purchase anything. The free rest stops cost nothing.

The prices for just about everything are cheaper in the states on either side of Illinois is an added bonus.

Being an anti-gun state does hurt businesses.

We were warned in the late 80s & early 90s but we refused to listen and now; Colorado is totally, completely and irreparably Californicated.

“Obviously, part of this is due to our own commitment to the right to keep and bear arms, but it also reflects 3 lawyers’ opinions that these laws are so poorly drafted and so designed to trap otherwise legal citizens into a crime (one of our attorneys referred to them as “flypaper laws”) that it is simply too dangerous for us to film here.”

For a long time now I’ve wondered if it is possible to initiate legislation via citizen petition that would limit the number of laws the state can have on the books. At some point, there are just so many that it would be impossible to NOT be in violation of something at some point in time. If we can place such a limit on our legislators, they would have to repeal something before initiating something new. There’s got to be a way...

Excellent! Look at how the bottom dropped out of WalMart sales (worst monthly sales in its history) just after it was reported WalMart Stores were no longer going to sell ammunition and assault weapons (WalMart came out later and denied the report) but, not before all hell broke out!

Same thing happened to Kmart, Bankrupt, sold to Sears, now, they are closing stores all over the US.

Colorado, you are in for some very lean times, keep following your puppet master Obama on gun control efforts!

How long before Colorado is bankrupt and demanding the tax payers bail the liberal socialist out of the financial mess they created for themselves!

Next on the chopping block, NY, Minn., Mass., Maryland, etc.

Elections have consequences. Other states have winter skiing, hunting and great scenery.

Actually, you got that one backwards. Sears has been failing for 20 years, and Kmart bought them. Sears is now taking Kmart down.

My thought has been that no law should be longer than one side of a 8x11 paper with 1” margins and 12 Times Roman.

That’s not bad, either! And no 20,000 pages of regulations to ‘implement’ the new law.

Likely true. My daughter and her husband left Colorado about 5 years ago, when they got fined for having a cistern that automatically watered their horses.

Property owners in Colorado don’t own the rain that falls on their land. Unbelievable.

This Coloradan is thinking about Texas. These new so-called “gun control” laws are nothing more nor nothing less than an expression of white hot blind hatred of the Second Amendment and all us ordinary people who believe it means exactly what it says.

“Good, let them all leave. CO can be a “gun free zone”. Let’s see how high crime will sky rocket if they pass these laws.”

yep and we have legalized marijuana so teen age smoking has increased, the idiots who proposed it haven’t as yet figured out what driving under it’s influence is, and denver may try to reverse the state law since crime has already increased in denver because of it. ironic since magpul can ship 30 rounds to any colorado address EXCEPT denver.
not to mention grandfathering older 30 rounf magazines. how are they even going to know when a magazine was bought? how are they going to know if i sell a gun to my neighbor? oh and as someone else mentioned, if they are doing a background check on whether i can own a legal firearm why do they need the make, moddel and serial number?
bastards

"...the “power” in commierado is in denver, boulder, front range i-25 corridor. the rest of the state is different."

Try building something, drilling/mining or starting a tiny manufacturing shop on private property on the Range. The regulations and impact fees are shockers to new residents. It's NIMBY Central--worse than Pueblo with NIMBYs (where quite a few people pushed for a uranium test drill on the Range banned by locals on the Range. Extreme environmentalism everywhere and some weird kind of animal worship.

One of the few real ranchers remaining (most others being government/corporate operations steeped in debt) had all of his cattle and equipment confiscated, was incarcerated, sued, etc., under the new animal protection law (Animal Protection Act or something like that) after losing some of the cattle (numbers hugely inflated by authorities) to a bad run of spraying ice and extremely cold temps during the spring.
