    Soon the violence of the gun toters as those who came to the rescue of Psycho Gilberton Police Chief Mark Kessler will not be tolerated by the tourism industry.

    As wild west as Colorado thinks it is, it is really only a dude ranch for rich people to have fun. Those same people can always go to Whistler, there's no homicidal maniacs with 2nd Amendment guns in Whistler.

      Colorado as a place to come shoot off your guns in any way other than for hunting purposes.  There has been some reported retaliation for Colorado's stricter gun laws in that some television series promoting hunting was going to pull out, and various hunters claimed they were going to boycott Colorado over the new restrictions, but we don't need people who have to have magazines over fifteen shots in size going hunting anyway.  Besides, that's for new purchases, IIRC, so people with existing magazines will still be able to riddle an elk's corpse with 30-100 bullets.  

      We'll see when hunting season starts if all the boycotts actually do happen.  Frankly, I believe it to all be hot air.

        middle of the nation on many measures.

        I suspect that the vast majority of gun owners in CO are responsible people who just want to go about their lives, without yahoos messing up their town. They don't want to get accidentally shot at a gun show any more than anyone else.

      deciding whether to expand in Gilberton because it's close to the interstate highway, or whether expand somewhere else that is a little further away.
