    this campaign to overturn the OC ban - and the mayor seems to be in their back pocket:

    Rocky Mountain Gun Owners helped fuel the repeal campaign by providing information and grassroots support. ..."I think it shows the residents of Castle Rock that their town council will stand up for their constitutional freedoms when possible," Castle Rock Mayor Paul Donahue said Wednesday.

    Donahue, an investor in the Centennial Gun Club, said his vote for the repeal reflected his constituents' wishes.

    There is a second vote of the city council scheduled for next Tuesday:

    The vote was the first of two required to approve a repeal. The second will take place at a special meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday. If the repeal passes on second reading, it will take effect 30 days later.
