Here in Colorado we have a bill banning some HC magazines and new background checks . I agree with all of these laws btw.  I have used many guns in the army and have owned a few but I don't feel people need to own military style guns.  


We have some angry gun owners threatening law makers , the few protester's we have in my little town are verbally abusive and that's ok with me but they seem to be getting worse and look more and more unstable.


Do you think we are headed for another shooting in Colo because of this ban? How do you feel about are state banning these magazines?


Fixed it!

Hope it becomes nationwide, as long as it is done constitutionally.

And they are going to lose many jobs as manufacturers go to other states.

That is a drawback but I think will be ok without them in the long run.

tell that to the people losing their jobs because busybodies can't just not have those things, they want to make sure other people cannot as well.

 I think the state of CO would set a precedent and hopefully many other states will follow. But, to your first question: yeah- wouldn't it be ironic (and horribly sad) if the gun ethusiatists went around shooting people and lawmakers who are supporting this ban.

  That is just a scare tactic. There is no basis for that line of thinking based on what CO is presenting.

I know the pain of unemployment, we were unemployment for almost 6 months at one time.  Change, even for the better isn't easy.  I think they are predicting about 200 jobs will be lost if the companies move. This is all speculation. I think this is about more than just some "busybodies" . lol

Tell that to the people that own and run Magpul.

But I guess you know better than they do.

I think it's wrong! If you look at our history when guns are taken away for so called " safety" it never good for the citizen we can't defend ourselves if terrorist come into our land. 

These wars are pissing off a lot of people blow-back is a bitch!!

This is putting a ban aid on a cancer there is NO REAL good reason to take away our guns we know that this will NOT STOP the killings.

This is just to pacify the naive.
