” According to NBC News, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper has signed into law two gun control bills.
The measures also met resistance from magazine-maker Magpul Industries, which said that it would desert its plant about 30 miles from Denver if the proposed magazine limits became law.
Legislators who had opposed new laws restricting gun ownership said on Wednesday the new gun bills may have electoral consequences for state Democrats.
“We’re all in shock here,” state Senator Greg Brophy, a Republican, said on Wednesday. “It turns out this guy who everybody thought was a moderate Democrat is actually a gun-control governor.”
“I think the governor will be replaced by someone who has Colorado values instead of New York City values,” Brophy said. “If Republicans are returned to control we will repeal these bills immediately.”
Magpul was unavailable for comment …

” Apparently Gov Hickenlooper has announced that he will sign HB 1224 on Wednesday. We
were asked for our reaction, and here is what we said:
We have said all along that based on the legal problems and uncertainties in the bill, as well
as general principle, we will have no choice but to leave if the Governor signs this into law.
We will start our transition out of the state almost immediately, and we will prioritize moving magazine manufacturing operations
first. We expect the first PMAGs to be made outside CO within 30 days of the signing, with the rest to follow in phases. “
Unbelievable . So in dedicating their lives to protect their country , their country in return is going to make that very sacrifice reason to take away one of the soldier’s GOD-given rights . We are sure that will do wonders for enlistment . Colorado has gone absolutely mad .
But the sentiment is not limited to Colorado Idiots …. California breeds them too … Dianne Feinstein joins the chorus .
” SEN. DIANNE FEINSTEIN: If I understand this, this adds an exemption of retired military. As I understand our bill, no issue has arose in this regard during the 10 years the expired ban was in effect and what we did in the other bill was exempt possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States. So that included active military.
The problem with expanding this is that, you know, with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it’s not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this.”
Shameful is right !
” A bill allowing lower tuition rates for illegal immigrant students received final approval from state House lawmakers Friday.
The bill passed 40-21 and will now proceed to Gov. John Hickenlooper, who is expected to sign the bill. Three Republicans joined with all the Democratic lawmakers to approve the bill.
Hickenlooper tweeted, “Undocumented kids will now have a fair and equitable way to pursue a higher education in CO. Well done.”
The bill allows students who graduate from Colorado high schools to attend college at the in-state rate regardless of their immigration status.
Currently, students in the country illegally must pay the non-resident tuition rate, which can be more than three times higher than the in-state rate.”
Colorado has gone insane . Law-breakers are rewarded with lower tuition rates than American students from out of state … This is truly nuts . Tuition breaks for illegals while denying Constitutional rights to citizen gun owners . What is in the water out there ?
After coming upon the above graphic it has become apparent that many states provide this price break in tuition prices to ILLEGAL ALIENS … At taxpayer expense of course . Remind us again who the politicians work for .
