You claim there is resistance. The newspapers claim the vast majority of citizens want bans on high cap mags.

I don't see the resistance articulated in any news. At best LEO's are divided over some of the bills, but NOT banning high cap mags.

From the Colorado Springs Gazette a couple days ago:

In response to concerns from law enforcement, the billís author made an 18 page amendment to the roughly 20 page bill. She said the County Sheriffs of Colorado and the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police now support the bill.

Sorry, my bad. I forgot this is a place for you to spout off your unsupported opinion as if it were fact. Carry on.

Ron, do yourself a favor and take a quick look at the sources and dates on those... try some critical thinking skills while you are at it.

"Maketa made the allegations Saturday morning on the Jeff Crank Radio Show on KVOR. He said he got an email from a member of the County Sheriffs of Colorado describing a verbal conversation that person had with someone connected to Senate democrats."

That is vague bullshit by anyone's standards. Basically you have ONE staunch Republican sheriff referring to a email from an unidentified person within his own organization (CSOC) who also clearly stated...

"I do not believe this would be sacrificing our principals or position on other gun bills."

The bill in question has NOTHING to do with high cap magazines:

Senate Bill 197 creates a mechanism to remove guns from people who are prohibited in federal law from possessing firearms because of certain types of domestic violence convictions or domestic violence protection orders.

Do you support Bill 197? Can you think of ANY SANE REASON an LEO would be opposed to Bill 197?

It ain't even close to extortion or intimidation. The Senate votes on a pay INCREASE for the law enforcement. Not getting a pay raise is NOT extortion, especially during tough economic times. This is nothing more than a political trick from a Republican in a very conservative area. It is petty and pathetic.

The other articles were from over a month ago.

For someone who doesn't know the difference between research and a google search, you sure do pretend to know what you are talking about.

Ron, read what I wrote. Try to understand it. Stop being an idiot.

They opposed Bill 1229, which wasn't even mentioned in the "intimidation" bullshit radio show you posted. They opposed it because it was "unenforceable." I feel for the Sheriffs. I have testified in front of law makers on water/erosion issues and they only hear what they want to hear. They generally have their minds made up before the testimony even begins... "will it get me more votes? will it get me more money?"

Simple as that.

It does NOT mean CSOC is opposed to banning high cap mags or some of the other bills. Which Sheriff testified against HB 1224, the one limiting mag capacity? That's right... take your time...

Strange, for a second I thought you might have known what you were talking about.

They want to ban high cap. mags in Colo, and 21 counties have said no to those ban proposals and have recieved intimidation from the Senate levels.

Right, refusing to do what all the other kids do makes you a wimp!

The one speaking... his county is set to lose 400+ jobs if that mag manufacturer follows through on their threat to pull out?


Don't matter. They passed.
