Colorado Wants to Ban Semiautomatic Firearms

The draft legislation has already sparked conservative backlash and lawsuit preparation from the local branch of the National Rifle Association, and while Democratic leadership has given it tentative support, Democratic Gov. Jared Polis has been noncommittal about the legislation. It has yet to get a hearing in Colorado’s statehouse, which kicked off its session earlier this month.

One of the bill’s sponsors, Democrat Rep. Andrew Boesenecker, said there remains a long runway before the legislation’s introduction, with more stakeholder input to hear and potential concerns to accommodate. Boesenecker remains confident in its support, adding, “I always count my votes.”

To Boesenecker, an Evangelical Lutheran pastor and former music teacher and who represents a district north of Denver that includes the city of Fort Collins, the bill’s details will take time, but the argument is simple.

“I drop off my kids at school,” he said, “I could no longer continue to live … not knowing what might happen to them between that time I dropped them off and was able to pick them up.”

That’s a lie.  He’s not a real pastor.  He’s a fake.  And if he’s so worried about having his children in public schools, he should be for reasons other than weapons.  Homeschool them.

Anyway, I see where this is going.  Now.  Do cops.

His draft of the bill prohibits the sale, transfer, importation and manufacture of semiautomatic rifles with detachable magazines that also have one or more of a list of seven characteristics that include a pistol grip, flash suppressor, folding stock or threaded barrel. The ban would also extend to certain semiautomatic shotguns and handguns but allow some exemptions including for military personnel and police officers.

Well then!  Tell us why you want cops armed with “dangerous weapons?”  Do you think they protect you?  Contrary to what was decided in Castle Rock v. Gonzalez, Warren v. District of Columbia, and DeShaney v. Winnebago County?  Why do you believe that myth?  Who taught you that?  Do you also believe in the tooth fairy?

Another one to be struck down, or otherwise, state from which to depart if you still live there.

Hey, let me know how it goes with all of those big cats, bears and moose in the area.  You have your choice in whether to get eaten or stomped to death.  Or maybe you really don’t.

Have fun on the trail, y’all.

    That’s the problem with conservatism, all it ever does is spark backlash. Conservatives has conserved nothing and they never go on offense to save the republic. Worse yet, most are just communists pretending to be for liberty.

    PGF, they’re one and the same Dem and Repub. Conservatism is an empty catchphrase in politics used only to get votes.

    Getting up towards the end of my run, my sister has asked me to move from Kentucky (permitless open carry state) to said county in Colorado. A sad situation that I will not move close to my only relatives due to politics. Her partner, whom she got legal after living here for decades from, of all places, Venezuela, is a rabid anti gun guy. Welcome to America, any other of our rights you hate? Ungrateful prick.

    Weird what an influx of California idiots and mail in voting will do to a state. *sarc off*

    Funny how the “evangelical” Christian “pastor” is not concerned about how the openly homosexual Jewish billionaire governor of his state might be corrupting the souls of his children by openly and shamelessly practicing and promoting man-on-man sodomy… nope, gotta take the guns away from the NRA members instead.

    Re: “That’s the problem with conservatism, all it ever does is spark backlash. Conservatives has conserved nothing and they never go on offense to save the republic. Worse yet, most are just communists pretending to be for liberty.”

    The genuine purpose of Conservative, Inc. and the GOP establishment isn’t to serve as a genuine opposition party; it is to provide the illusion of choice and to provide ideological security to the right-flank of the uni-party leviathan.

    “Conservatives” like George Will, Bill Kristol, et al. provide a form of pseudo-protest acceptable to the deep-state, while also attacking any alternatives offering genuine traditional values. Finally, MSM networks can then claim, having these people on their shows, that they are willing to present both sides of the issue…. in a pig’s eye they are! Fakes and frauds from top to bottom.

    It was over for Commierado when Mag-Pul pulled out.
    Elites use it for doomsday bunkers but Yellowstone caldera is right next door to the north.
    So called “high capacity” magazines are not allowed the glorious peoples republic of CO.
    Something you should know if you have a permit from a reciprocal state.
    The horde of commie dope smoking maggots from California ruined the place.

    Demographics are destiny, folks…. and the case of Colorado proves it. In the old days, that state was once firmly in the pro-2A column, but look what has happened to it now!

    -It’s called “controlled opposition.”
