cameroncrazy1984: super_grass: Clearly, your hunting trips in northern New England makes you an authority in defending yourself against animal attacks in Colorado.Because there are no animals in Vermont at all.
redmid17: Cheviot: pedrop357: Cheviot: There is fairly easy to fix. The legislature can make it a felony to refuse to enforce state law. If a local sheriff still refuses, send in the state police and arrest them.Prove he's not enforcing it.Easy, just ask him. He's already incriminated himself. He seems very proud that he's not enforcing the law. His own public statements would be enough to get him arrested and then later convicted when he can't demonstrate in court that his public statements were false."I tried enforcing the law, but with no records requirement the law relied entirely on the word of the participants. We've had a few cases where it could have been successful, but the lack of evidence did it in."Do you seriously think that anyone could prosecute these sheriffs?
jaytkay: super_grass: cameroncrazy1984: super_grass: That's not something that you'd want when a bobcat is jumping at you. That shiat works in CAWADOODY, not in real life.I've never used a hunting rifle in Call of Duty, but I have used one in the mountains of Vermont.Clearly, your hunting trips in northern New England makes you an authority in defending yourself against animal attacks in Colorado.Aside from the location and circumstance of your experiences, they are completely applicable and analogous to what we're talking about.Well I've spent time in Colorado. Every summer as a kid, I lived in a mountain town of 700 people, and spent my days hiking alone around the mountains. For the past 20 years, I usually spend a week every fall camping and fishing around the state.I've never felt a need to carry a gun. But I'm not a frightened bedwetter by nature.You may be different.
WhoopAssWayne: cameroncrazy1984: So by "packing up and went home" you actually meant "are still actively protesting"?No, I mean packing up, toeing the party line, and sacrificing their integrity. When Obama was elected, liberals stopped protesting. They proved all of their previous protests were just hatred for one man, not any kind of concern about war, the people affected overseas, or our own troops. When the possibility of embarrassing the other side went away, so did they. They cared only about making a political point - same as with this Gun Rights grab.(here is at least one empirical measurement, independent of my individual observations and opinions at least - not like you're capable of change.jpg or anything, but here it is)Google Trends - War Protests, US - 2004-Present
cameroncrazy1984: I'm a gun nut's worst enemy: A gun-owning, gun-using liberal.
jaytkay: Silly Jesus: Nobody would ever need more than 15 rounds for protection? Right? I wonder why law enforcement was given an exemption then...oh, wait, this just in, sometimes more than 15 rounds might be needed.You must get into a lot of combat situations. That sounds exciting. Tell us all about your experiences.
jaytkay: iheartscotch: Due to bears and mountain lions; Coloradans actually need firearms. Giant mountain kitties think people are pretty tasty.Totally just protecting himself against bears and mountain lions:[static.ow.ly image 286x358]These guys, too. Bears and mountains lions threatened them on a daily basis:[trueslant.com image 286x275]
cameroncrazy1984: Fun fact: The SAFE act has nothing to do with hunting rifles,
Happy Hours: Somewhat related to this was a speech I saw on the Colorado version of CSPAN.The ban on magazines holding more than 15 rounds also (allegedly) includes wording which says something to the effect of "or could easily be converted to hold more than 15 rounds".The guy pulls a 10-round clip out of his pocket and then pulls out a plastic extender magazine which slid right into it.If he's right and that language was included in the final version it sounds like that particular law is a bunch of farking bullshiat.I'm actually tempted to go buy a gun (along with accessories) while I still can. Then again, I suppose I could always drive down to Texas and get one if/when I ever really want/need one.Or if such laws are passed nationwide, I could always seek out the black market.
LarryDan43: What about being in this country ILLEGALLY is so hard for you to understand! It is against the LAW for them to be here! Look, I don't have a problem with immigrants who follow the law and get here legally. But the law is the law and it should be enforced.
dukwbutter: jake_lex: I bet the gun nuts who applaud this would call for him to go to jail if he said "You know, I think I'm just not going to arrest people for possessing pot anymore."Pot is legal in Colorado idiot.
