Skip to comments.Canada:How some Colorado plumbers stopped U.S. gun control in its tracks
Posted on 09/22/2013 5:34:19 PM PDT by marktwain
WASHINGTON Adam Head and his brother Victor, two gun-toting plumbers from Pueblo, Colo., were sitting around Victors living room with a few friends last March pondering their next move.
The two brothers had spent weeks campaigning against a proposed state law that would ban gun magazines larger than 15 rounds and would impose universal background checks on all private purchases at gun shows. But to no avail.
The Colorado legislature had just voted to pass these restrictions into law and the Head brothers were on the warpath.
While many Americans would consider Colorados new gun laws too tame, many people in Pueblo County disagree. They view the laws as an attack on their second amendment rights to keep and bear arms.
Their arguments arent knew. In fact, they are typical of gun owners across the U.S. The Second Amendment is the only one that secures the rest of them, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, Victor, 29, said. Without the second, those dont mean s because they could take them away from you at any given time unless you can protect them with the second.

I read right after the recall election that the ratio was 7-1. Either way, you know the Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms are lying and the ratio was probably more like 20-1.
“A Canadian view of what happened in Colorado.”
Next time, never use any source with the word “Vancouver” in it. The Province and the Sun are the most anti-American newspapers in canada, with the Globe & Mail a close second. I;m from the city and I should know. I’m here right now on location shoot. If you knew how they stoked the deaths of American soldiers during the Iraq War, you would think otherwise.

Consider the following equally valid perspectives:
“A barrista’s perspective of Particle Physics.”
“A born-blind person’s perspective on Picasso’s use of color.”
“A Los Angeleno’s perspective on the NHL.”
People with no Bill of Rights have no idea what they mean.
Up here in Canada they think they are free but are only one vote away from slavery.
Also, they spelled “new” as “knew”.
They give away the National Post at every UPS store. I would rather read that as it leans to the right.
Colorado Ping ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
Can Colorado plumbers smuggle us 3 gallon toilets from Canada too?
They had a series everyday right before the Iraq War,mostly editorials that galvanized the city to protest almost everyday in front of the US embassy, burning American flags and effigies of US soldiers. You haven’t seen or read the anti-American crap and if you did, your view of canadians will change overnight.
I forgot what exact week it was in 2003, but the analysis or report on the front or second page had a headline that read “US soldiers need to die so Bush will learn his lesson”. Sickened the sh*t out of me. Every effing’ lampost had a protest date and place every damn week. I laugh at these idiot freepers who think canadians are such docile and nice people.
I smell the hicks form the sticks meme again. Many Americans think the Colorado laws are another asinine overreaching infringement on the right to keep and bear arms which will do absolutely nothing to stop a maniac in a gun-free zone from having their way.
They view the laws as an attack on their second amendment rights to keep and bear arms.
And rightly so.
Their arguments arent knew.
Who 'new' Canadians spelled "new" with a 'k' when they were talking about the age of a concept? No, the arguments aren't new, they go back to the Bill of Rights and beyond.
But then, if you are a writer having trouble with homonyms, maybe those concepts will elude you...(maybe the writer is a closet homonymophobe)
Isn’t Vancouver an extreme left-wing city, even by Canadian standards? I’d always heard that BC was mostly conservative, although that may be by Canadian standards. In other words, would this Vancouver bs be indicative of Canadian attitudes as a whole, or are they like the San Francisco of the north?
“Isnt Vancouver an extreme left-wing city, even by Canadian standards?”
It’s like the San Fran of the north. Before I left for the US, three of us young guns headed the Conservative Party resurgence in BC, Vancouver chapter and Stephen Harper even had a rally here in 06. Now this is like George Bush being allowed a rally in the Castro District, and we managed it. Probably best achievement in my life. Then I applied to the Young Republicans to manage their social media department and they laughed at me...and people want to know why the GOP lose.
Well,At Least The Canucks Reported The Story!Our MSM Bunch Of OBONGO A$$-KI$$ERS Never Touched It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is because Rove and his ilk would crap themselves- they don’t want to makes waves.
With Carl, it is all about power and money. He has been a stooge for the Bushes since about 1980, and if you want to know what the Bushes think, just listen to him.
