If you know any state employees, put them on your shun list. They are potential informers.

Do not confide in school teachers. As a matter of fact, get your kids out of government schools.

Do everything in your power to avoid interaction with law enforcement personnel. They are not there to protect the rights of the law-abiding.

A town hall went on today in Colorado Springs to answer questions about what's coming down from state capital in Denver or Washington DC:

"Commissioner Littleton Schedules Town Hall Meeting on Pending State Gun Laws
3/11/13 1:15 PM
All County


Sheriff Terry Maketa to Answer Citizens Questions

El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa will join County Commissioner Peggy Littleton for a “town hall” public meeting this Thursday to answer citizens’ questions about legislation under consideration in Denver and Washington which would impose additional regulations on the ownership and sale of firearms and ammunition. Earlier this year the Board of El Paso County Commissioners unanimously adopted a Resolution in support of second amendment rights and urging both federal and state lawmakers to reject new legislation which would seek to limit those rights.

El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa also issued statement in support of second amendment rights and indicating that the Sheriff’s Office would not support the enforcement of Presidential orders or similar rules of administrative agencies which would be in conflict with second amendment constitutional guarantees.

Commissioner Peggy Littleton says, “There is a lot of talk new gun restrictions in Denver and in Washington and we have been getting questions from El Paso County residents who want to know more about what’s being proposed and what these proposed restrictions would mean here in El Paso County. Sheriff Maketa will be there to answer citizens' questions about local enforcement requirements.”

The public meeting will be held Thursday night, March 14, 2013 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Commissioners Hearing Room at Centennial Hall, 200 South Cascade Avenue. Free parking is available in the El Paso County parking garage on Sawatch Avenue directly west of Centennial Hall."

And from Jan 25th.

..."Commissioners, at the initial urging of Commissioner Peggy Littleton, resolved to not “enforce any statutes, edicts, Presidential Directives, or other regulations and proclamations which conflict — and are expressly preempted by — the U.S. Supreme Court’s rulings” on Second Amendment questions.

It’s good that our county politicians understand the law, respect the law and vow to uphold the law against rogue federal efforts to violate it. The resolution mentions a landmark 2008 Supreme Court ruling that said the Second Amendment protects individual gun rights, not just a collective right to keep and bear arms. A related ruling in 2010 made clear that states must abide by the Second Amendment.

Commissioners also asked the United States Senate to reject international treaties that challenge America’s Second Amendment.

Littleton said she proposed the resolution because she suspects President Obama wants to restrict ownership and possession of firearms. El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa, who has long defended the Second Amendment against political and bureaucratic threats, put his support for the resolution in a letter:

[Sheriff Maketa] “I am among the millions of Americans who choose to exercise their right to bear arms and I avoid judgment of those who choose not to,” Maketa wrote. “Today and every day into the future, I will continue to not only exercise this right, but ensure that our law-abiding citizens’ right to bear arms is protected. I personally believe this right among others is non-negotiable.”

Though some may consider the statement a radical tilt at Uncle Sam, it’s nothing more than a sheriff restating his oath. Maketa and other sheriffs vow to protect the Constitution of the United States. "

Like the picture of the sign on the front lawn pointing to a neighbors house stating.......”my next door nieghbor wants to ban all guns, their house is not armed so out of respect for thier opinion I promise not to use my guns to protect them” should also be used in the case of states like CO.

I remember driving into states or counties where beer was illegal. The signs at at businesses at the border said LAST CHANCE LIQUER!

So, businesses on the border of Colorado need to advertize LAST CHANCE GUN MAGAZINES!

It won’t apply to Coloradans of the First Settler Syndrome (all grandfathered in as usual, of course), but tourists and newbies will be honored by getting some attention from Coloradans. They’ll be arrested and tossed into the State’s big prison industry for possessing those “easily convertible” magazines. [Little irony and sarcasm there.]
