  •  Calling it gun safety doesn't fool anybody (9+ / 0-)

    Gun safety is what I practiced yesterday while I was hunting.  It included not loading my rifle until I was in my hunting spot, keeping the safety on, finger off the trigger, and keeping it pointed away from me.  What Colorado did was increase gun regulations, which is far more accurate.

      come out of the shadows and put their issue to the vote of the majority of the electorate. Let the issue be decided by the majority of the electorate.

      There is no point debating the merits here - it's a merry-go-round.

      Each side's job is to persuade the majority of voters who is correct about this issue.

      I look forward to seeing the NRA and Tom Tancredo make that case in 2014.

        electorate."?

        Since when do we put Constitutional and civil rights to a majority vote?

        Oh that's right, when it's the ones we don't agree with and when we think the majority will vote against them. Nice to see Republicans and Democrats can find stuff to agree on.

        As far as the merit, I find very little of merit in a law that was supported by people who claimed "high capacity magazines" served no purpose but to murder people yet specifically carved out an exception for a local manufacturer to keep manufacturing those people-murderers in Colorado as long as it was selling them in other states. I'd like someone to explain the ethics of that to me, if you can.
