Gun Ban in Boulder

Well, it was bound to happen.  “Assault” weapons will be banned in Boulder. 

I went to a forum last night where the city of Boulder allowed the public to be heard on the subject of banning “assault style” weapons from the city.  The majority of people spoke against the ban.  The minority of people spoke for the ban.  Over 100 people showed up.

Those for the ban shared stories of deaths and feelings of hopelessness and fear.

Those against the ban shared facts and statistics and rights.

It really is true that people do not care for facts.  They don’t care about what right you have to feel safe.  They only care about what is happening in their magic factory of thoughts in their brains.

People “shouldn’t” have assault weapons so we need to ban them.  End of story.  As far as the city of Boulder is concerned.

One day someone will invent an actual light saber.  To keep yourself safe, you will also want to own one.  Their response will be that, no, you don’t need one.  No one needs one.  I guess.  Somehow that makes sense to them.

All I know is that Gary Cooper 4 County Commissioner just went up by 10 points!

New York Gun Laws

A couple of things about this story titled “Buffalo police now coming to homes after funerals to look for guns”.

1) Why? Doesn’t everyone just follow the law? Isn’t that the point of gun laws? Pass a law that bad guys can’t have guns, then bad guys won’t have guns.

Buffalo, New York police are now visiting the homes of those recently departed in search of firearms as part of a new plan to help keep tabs on local guns.

2) People like to believe that police officers will never be a part of the political takeover, but here it’s the Police Commissioner who came up with this plan that treats family members as if they will NOT follow the law and turn in these guns that apparently can not be passed down in the family without proper over site. Should the IRS Commissioner also visit these homes to confiscate any property where the death tax hasn’t been paid yet?

Slippery slope my friends, slippery slope.
