Colorado Democrat afraid to let his kids play with Nerf guns after Zimmerman verdict
Daily Caller ^ | July 18, 2013 | Greg Campbell

Posted on 07/19/2013 6:36:42 AM PDT by kevcol

The Colorado Democratic legislator who once suggested “ballpoint pens” were reasonable alternatives to handguns for self-defense wrote on Facebook that “cold fingers of fear grasped at my throat” in the wake of the George Zimmerman trial when his 15-year-old son asked if it was OK to play cops-and-robbers outside with toy Nerf guns.

“With a dry mouth and wet eyes, I angrily told him that he could not go outside and play a simple childhood game,” state Rep. Jessie Ulibarri wrote in a message he later promoted on the liberal blog ColoradoPols.

Ulibarri, who is Hispanic, was afraid his son would be profiled because of his dark skin.

Champion of Colorado driver’s licenses to illegal aliens, and ballpoint pen defense:

Ulibarri told the Colorado Senate Judiciary Committee that there are alternatives to guns for self-defense, like ballpoint pens. As Ulibarri pointed out, when the gunman stops to reload (if you haven’t been shot already) it is the perfect time to attack your assailant with your pen.[LINK]

But I’m sure he’s OK with handing his boy a condom and sending him out to play.

****************************
Is his son mentally handicapped? If not, why is a 15 year old asking his father that? Strange...

My guess is that he is involved with a white liberal of either sex and this pansy politics is his way of submission.

I sometimes wonder who are the more afraid of? Us, the citizens of the country? Or are they more afraid of themselves and what they would do in similar circumstances and having decided that to prevent their own selves from doing something, they needed to prevent all of us from doing it too.

And if that is true, then somebody really needs to learn some self-control. And that somebody ISN’T the legal gun owners of America for the most part.

Same here. Why would a fifteen year old have to ask to play outside. My kids would just go out and play.

I caught that too. A 15 year old wanting to play “cops and robbers”? He could have made up a more plausible BS story than that. On second thought, maybe not.

I was thinking the same thing. When I was 15 I was shooting real guns (safely and well, I might add) and not asking anyone's leave before doing so. But I liven in America back then. I guess in this new Nerf country we live in now things are different.

It is not only the 15 year old asking to go out, but the extreme emotional crisis that the question caused. Of course, if the 15 year old asked permission to go to some child molestor’s house, he would be writing paragraphs about how proud he was.

The photo of Rep. Jessie Ulibarri tell us just what is wrong with America today. Doughy, pudgy girly men! This guy can only be in his 30s and is in worse shape than I am. (71) If he would spend more time working and less time pontificating he might learn to be a man.

'My heart and head ache this evening. Israel turned 15 last week and he's having a belated birthday party tonight. He asked me if he and his friends could go outside this evening and play "Cops and Robbers" with his Nerf guns.

My stomach lurched and cold fingers of fear grasped at my throat when I imagined my dark son, dressed in a sweatshirt, running through the streets of our neighborhood. With a dry mouth and wet eyes, I angrily told him that he could not go outside and play a simple childhood game.

I hope he knows that I am not angry with him, but I'm infuriated with the world we're raising him in. I'm angry at myself for limiting my son and denying him his youth because I'm petrified of what may happen to him for LWB (living while brown). I'm angry that black and brown boys are always seen as a threat, and never the joyful kids I know them to be.

The verdict in the Trayvon Martin case has caused so much pain for so many, and our family grieves tonight. We mourn not just Trayvon and his family, but for the loss of innocence and freedom every brown and black kid endures with this verdict.'

Must have also been a dark and stormy night.

Even more alarming is the number of liberal hand-wringers that will agree with this obvious lie about the 15 year old "asking permission to go out and play cops and robbers with a nerf gun."

Uh, how come he didn’t support his hispanic brother in the case? I guess Zimmerman doesn’t SOUND hispanic and ulibarri probably thought he was Jewish and automatically started hating on him. What a didiots. He probably believes that hispanics are a race all their own too. If we want to go that route, my dutchness makes me a different race too. NOT!
