Payback Time!

Things that make you go hmmmm....

  • The Colorado state government has enacted Obama's ban on "high capacity magazines" and so-called "universal background checks". 
  • Colorado state and local governments project a combined deficit of $7.5 billion for 2013.
  • Outdoor recreation in Colorado (hunting, camping, fishing, skiing, etc.) generates…
    • $13.2 billion in consumer spending
    • 125,000 direct Colorado jobs
    • $4.2 billion in wages and salaries
    • $994 million in state and local tax revenue
Given the fragile nature of Colorado's economy, the actions of the Democrat legislature and governor go beyond just plain dumb all the way to felony stupid.

Bullies don't stop being bullies unless and until they experience an unpleasant personal outcome as a result of their behavior. True to type, America's socialists pause their relentless attacks on the Second Amendment only when punished. Bill Clinton learned this life lesson the hard way when the last "assault weapons" and "high capacity magazine" bans were enacted. That "victory" cost the Democrats control of the House of Representatives in 1994 but had absolutely no effect on crime.

Today's socialists are generally as insulated from the real world as they are arrogant. Accordingly, they were absolutely gobsmacked when the American people reacted to Obama's anti-gun rhetoric by launching a buying frenzy that literally cleared the shelves of every firearm and cartridge available for retail sale in the United States. Perhaps that fierce reaction accounts for the amazingly sparse "news" coverage that followed the most recent "gun control victory" in Colorado.

Unfortunately, restricting the rights of law-abiding Americans is more important to Colorado's control freaks than the damage their actions are going to cause to their state's finances. Very well. It is time to make them pay and their blind arrogance has put them in a world of hurt. You see, they desperately need the money of the very people whose rights they have so stupidly attacked and all we need do is nothing. We just refuse to spend any money in Colorado and Colorado's socialists will be out of a job quicker than you can say "Saul Alinsky". That means no camping trips in Colorado. No vacations of any type in Colorado. No conventions in Colorado. No elk hunts in Colorado. No travel in Colorado. Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho are splendid alternatives for most purposes. I-80 works as well as I-70 to many destinations and it's a pretty drive.

Please consider sending this message (or its equivalent in your own words):
Hello. Although I love your people and your mountains I will never set foot in Colorado again or spend any money in your state for so long as any of the just enacted anti-firearm legislation remains in effect. Thank you.
