Colorado town looks to defy SCOTUS with new gun regulations: Increase age to 21, prohibit open carry in public, prohibit concealed carry in city & county properties, ban rapid-fire trigger activators, regulate "ghost guns," 10-day waiting period prior to sale, proof of training class. (bearingarms.com)
Not going to stop shootings. Here's something to consider: It's already illegal for minors to own guns, but yet schools are shot up multiple times per year in this country. No gun law will stop these shootings because, as I've already said, it's ALREADY illegal for minors to own guns. You'd think that after having made drugs illegal for over 100 years, but yet having more people using and dying from them than ever, would make these people stop and think to themselves "hmm, maybe a new law isn't what we need here", but it never does.
Their goal isn’t to stop shootings. They don’t actually give a fuck about people being murdered. Their primary goal is to incrementally move towards complete civilian disarmament.
Everything they do is about the long game and incrementally moving towards socialistic serfdom. Like how Obamacare is really about complete control of the medical system and “gays just want to get married” the elimination of Christianity and morality.
Don't forget "climate change" is about getting you in an electric car that they can turn off and on as they wish to control your freedom of movement.
Battery powered cars have to be charged, and they are charged off a grid run on burning coal. Anyone who believes that electric cars are good for the environment must also believe that you can prevent droughts by buying more buckets.
Angrily tosses bucket onto giant pile of buckets.
Lol'ed at that one, thanks, fren.
ICEs are amazing technology and we should stop pretending otherwise. The ability to run that level of power off of a bucket of liquid is civilization changing, and moving away from that level of distributed technology to centralized electricity generation is pants on head retarded.
That liquid is the problem - gasoline cars are mostly pointless as electric sedans are simply better, and for any real work you need a diesel. Diesel has some issues - you either need this modern frankendiesel that is absolute shit, or you deal with sulfur emissions (smog/acid rain). Scrubbing sulfur is done by adding water to the diesel, the process of getting out most of the water is pricy, and the water that remains causes fuel rot and general instability
Also, you are relying on highly centralized refineries for either. Electricity is far less centralized than refineries
We're also talking about engines and cars, the whole things are dependent on highly centralized manufacturing environments.
It comes down to the last mile problem. I can pour gas into a can, or store that gas for years in drums. Electric requires direct access to centralized infrastructure just for day to day work.
I have off grid solar.
I'll see your off grid solar panels that still require manufacturing and raise you some "solar powered" bio diesel.
I know my 3 year old grandson loves his little electric jeep. Battery powered cars are fun toys.
Ever been to a Florida retirement community where electric golf carts are the main form of transportation?
A flat, seasonal temperate place where everything is within 2 miles?
No, not yet. Are they content with their battery powered vehicles in that particular bubble?
Batteries are energy storage devices... not energy creation devices.
You still got to generate the power somewhere to charge up these "battery powered cars"
(Do not call them electric cars... we need to change this to battery powered)
Electric vs internal combustion engine has nothing to do with ability to turn your car off on or off will - your fuel injected engine is ran by a computer. And you can't carburate a diesel.
Coal is 17 dollars a ton, diesel is 5 dollars a gallon. Wyoming has more coal than the rest of the world combined and half of "the rest of the world" is still in the USA.
ICE car ECU's are so easy to swap out that it's not even funny.
That's why California tried to ban car tuning years ago
My 12 valve has no computer!
Even easier for an electric vehicle as what is being managed is fundamentally simpler.
The other goal of "climate change", as Trump pointed out iirc decades ago, is to make American manufacturing non-competitive. Because america will implement 'climate regulations' while China and India and other countries just don't give a fuck, thus ensuring that American companies get priced out of the market because they literally can't compete against companies that aren't being regulated to death like they are.
if they cared about people being murdered, they would not have memory holed the CO and Walmart shootings because the first one was done by a tranny and the second by a black
they would also not ignore the 1000s of blacks killed by other blacks each year
99% of all mass shootings are gang related and done by a handful of people but the media hides it from normies. Whoulddathunk
And most of those gang shootings seem to happen in dem controlled cities to boot.
Bingo. This guy gets it 👆
They celebrate the gay/tranny lifestyle because they encourage depopulation. Another 'long game' as you pointed out.
Evil prince thinking, aka Machiavelli. Disarm those that don't love you. The justifications changes thru history, but the overall goal is despotism.
You reply is so spot on...+1
93% of the shootings in this country are committed by people of coloreds
most of those are gang/drug related
no law is going to stop shootings as long as there is money in drugs and blacks are not held accountable for breaking it
That is true - which is why Singapore is rich with minimal resources, while the DRC is so poor. You need a government that strongly recognizes property rights and encourages business growth in order to succeed
Any organization with the ability to enforce property rights is a government
And then that becomes a war between your government and their government...
It's true, but there's a missing bit, where laws and regulations are downstream of a culture that respects and follows laws and regulation. However that way leads to the conclusion that some cultures (and thus some races) are just better than others and there's no way you can fix that with some words on paper.
Except Singapore as my example is culturally identical to it's neighbors Indonesia and Malaysia - both of which are significantly poorer, with Indonesia being one of the poorest countries on earth
Singapore is such a fascinating case to study.
Their model is basically a benevolent dictatorship. They have just had a run of extremely good luck in that their leadership has been relatively corruption free. This is ideal for a resource constrained city state. Indonesia, on the other hand has huge amounts of undeveloped land and resources.
Weirdly in that case, like in China, corruption tends to result in better economic outcomes. As the resources tend to remain locked down until a corrupt official can benefit directly.
The most valuable commodity on the planet is the ability to plan ahead, which is generally a derivative of law and order. additionally if you know you will get paid with a handshake rather than having a team of lawyers and paying off the right people, the bar for commerce is a lot lower
Insightful. Thanks for sharing.
I'd also like to point out the obvious. Murder is illegal. Once a person decides to take inoccent lives do you really think they give two fucks about violating a conceal carry restriction? These leftist fucks are beyond retarded if they think this will do a damn thing.
You get it fren. It was right there and I couldn't see it.
I've wondered the same for years. It's an extremely telling comparison because it forces one to come to the realization that a so-called all powerful government can or cannot control everything at least that's what I assumed a rational person would eventually arrive at. Now we're living in the age of the central programmed NPC. They receive their updates more frequently than the phones the tightly clutch in their hands.
They know it's not going to stop mass shootings. The goal is to get guns out of the hands of the law abiding, so they're more easy to control. If they really thought these methods were effective, they'd apply them to automobiles too (you know, to cut down on traffic deaths and fatalities related to drunk driving). Imagine laws that outlaw hood scoops and spoilers (assault vehicles), limit cars to no more than 175 horsepower and gas tank capacities to 4 gallons (no needs to drive more than 100 miles per day).
Black market gas tanks...
But, unfortunately, things are heading that way with the electric vehicle push.
Lol Broomfield is so cucked. The Boulder hippies got old and moved out there and to Lafayette.
Ntm the entire state has sudden onset autism from all the fucking weed.
And sudden onset retardation from all the fuckin' Californians.
The Green Rush
God I hate California.
Hence why Wyoming loves to treat marijuana possession with green plates so hard
I'd say based Wyoming but then I remembered Liz Cheney.
Some dumb hole.
God. Colorado would be such a great state if it weren’t for the hippie fags, liberal douchebag transplants, universities, and the humidity. Talk about a bunch of self entitled delusionals.
You could say that about California too. The most beautiful states in the republic, ruined by the retards that live there.
I know it’s horrible. Gimme the swamp or Texas heat any day. Colorado sucks you dry without you even realizing.
Was gonna say, buying a whole home humidifier is basically a requirement in Colorado. Humidity gets down to like 8% in winter
Boulder is and always will be a cesspool . Full of cults, hippies, and ritual child sex abuse going back decades. Anyone who has any sense should stay away from boulder
Interesting. You have a source where I can read more about Boulder's sordid history?
It’s wild how fast Colorado fell. I think they’re coming for all the mountain states.
There's also a ton of Californians moving into town escaping the progressive hell hole that state has become. 25 years ago it was a great community till the atmosphere changed.
Liberals ruined Colorado.
I'd give anything to have the old Colorado back. The one without all the liberal douches from the coasts. Nothing but freedom loving hippies and cowboys before.
Now it's degenerates and trannies.
California was a nice place at one time too.
This is how I feel about Boise. My neighborhood was freedom loving hippies. The surrounding areas were cowboys and farmers. Now my neighborhood is shitlibs with trans flags and BLM signs in the front yards of their $800,000 homes Granted, the county is still red and it’s not like I’m living in hellish Portland or Seattle, but how long before I am?
Libertarianism ruined these places. Nobody is a stronger "conservative" voice for tolerating faggotry than libertarian losers. They happily vote for abortions and drugs because they think everyone will leave each other alone.
Will they apply the same restrictions to exercising every other constitutional amendment/ right?
Oddly, they don't advocate removing people's vocal chords in order to protect us from that ever-present threat.
Not to mention, yelling "fire!" in a crowded theater when there is actually a fire is the right thing to do.
The "fire in a crowded theater" is a fake globalist talking point. There is no such restriction on the 1st amendment regarding this silly scenario.
See Brandenburg Test
Criminals don't obey laws. The inanimate object is not the problem. The mentally ill lunatic who wants to kill people is the problem.
It's brilliant actually. Remember, our enemy plays the long game and pushes the offense when need be. This little town is going to be the test subject of this new law fare tactic of ignoring a court ruling and seeing what happens. They act, we react and now they know how we will play it. They adjust from there and go on but meanwhile they have still moved the ball forward and we are still on defense. This ends when the Mayor, the Council, the town's District Attorney and the Sheriff are all arrested and locked up. As long as there is no consequence for giving SCOTUS the finger....this will continue.
no, they are doing us a favor
this will end up at SCOTUS and it will give them a chance to further restore the 2A
That democrats will just ignore because they don’t give a shit and none of the powers that be will do anything about it.
Preach fren. The DA et al, are compliments of soros as well.
It's not. This same thing has occurred multiple times, including just this year after Bruen. The results for them generally are not positive and depends a good amount on state preemption laws so far.
Yes, I agree which is why I said what I said. Libs know they lose these cases but as they adjust their strategy when they see how we react...that is how they will end up winning these things. Remember, in a true Constitutional Republic, we wouldn't have to worry about these things because in a strict Constructionalist government, the 2A would be respected and that would be the end of the story.....but we don't and it won't.
Colorado has a gun problem because they have a radical lefty problem. Too many of their citizens are mentally unwell due to their political beliefs
And tbf a lot of them are 'high' on life and don't make the best decisions.
Point of fact. Way way back when CO marijuana laws were changed a friend in oil business frequently went there. After they passed the law he saw so many more wrecks on expressway. So many that he mentioned it to a business associate. The guy just shook his head and said 'rocky mt high driving' had become a significant problem.
Marijuana use is a violation of specific declarations on the form 4473...
Seems like Boulder could get most of the way toward their stated goal by simply enforcing already existing laws. Of course that would upset their key constituency of the potheads.
Just think about how safe they will be once all the people that have entered and are in the country illegally conform to all of these laws!
Do it. let's set a precedent for ignoring the SC.
Our side never does that though. Biden says not to use the Keystone pipeline? No one uses the Keystone pipeline. Biden says not to drill. No one drills. These would be easy to simply ignore. IRS or Dept of Justice comes to penalize or audit? State authorities should arrest them.
I have an uncle's WW2 M1 carbine unloaded and proudly displayed for over 20 years. So far it has not loaded itself left the house and been responsible for a random mass shooting........
Thats awesome! I'm very jealous. I love ww2 era guns. My grandfather left me his Colt revolver, and it just sits there not committing any crimes.
yep another law-abiding gun
CO town looking at CA laws with a tranny boner saying they want that too
All gun laws are unconstitutional.
Why do they think banning concealed carry will do anything? If some guy is gonna hold up a liquor store, you think he'll openly carry?
They don't. Its not about safety. It's about civilian disarmament.
Sounds like my whole state! (NY)
Any cop who attempts to enforce this should receive a death penalty.
And all that really happens is that lawyers get rich(er) by fighting these cases in court. I swear they do this shit to see how deep our pockets are.
why do so many government entities believe lawful gun purchases lead to mass shootings? why aren't they doing anything to prevent criminals from obtaining guns?
People who have their rights violated by these dictator flaws, will simply sue the state in federal court, and bankrupt the fiefdoms....
Sounds good to me. So now our towns can bring back sodomy laws and ban faggot marriage.
Notice how the left constantly defy court orders and nothing happens to them. However if you are conservative they will come full force look at any of the county clerks etc that don’t comply
How do you regulate guns that are made off the radar? Jesus these motherfuckers are stupid and desperate
Colorado Voters need to turn the state Red. Anything Democrats are in control of gets screwed up.
There is no "legal" avenue to hold the state governments accountable for when they infringed on the constitution and outright ignore the SCOTUS.
You consent to their rule by doing nothing about it.
This is actually good news. Please try to enact every gun restriction possible so they can all be struck down in the USSC.
Only to be struck down in days.
Just more Democrat virtue signalling.
Spooky. I sometimes defy SCOTUS. Well I guess I just lied. I defy them all the time after their election none rulings and the BLM riots. There are no laws. Thanks
I hope they also banned criminal activities.
I grew up in Broomfield. I think there are 2 gun stores there, one at the indoor range and then a pawn shop. Most of these rules mean nothing. Just drive to Weld county up the road to buy your guns.
The Boulder infection is getting worse in Broomfiled and all of the cities around Boulder. Hell Louisville just passed a referendum prohibiting the building of any gas stations in the city.
The people get what they vote for.
Good. What's SCOTUS going to do about it? They have lost all credibility so I don't care if they lose their power. They deserve it.
Can someone please explain to me how training to get a gun is a bad thing, especially if the range/training center provides the gun to use for the training? Granted, I'm assuming that the law isn't a catch 22 and it's impossible to legally handle a gun without the training, and you have to handle a gun to do the training.
The rest of the nonsense can go screw itself.
That's fine, it proves we can do the same thing in our towns.
