  •  Colorado HB 14-1386 (3+ / 0-)

    UPDATED SUMMARY
    HOUSE BILL 14-1386
    Second Regular Session - Sixty-ninth Colorado General Assembly
    This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.  It does not reflect any amendments that may be subsequently adopted.  This
    summary reflects only the main points of the legislation.

    The bill adds revised definitions for "danger to self or others" and "gravely disabled". The term "imminent" is removed from "imminent danger" to conform with the new definitions.

    How absolutely devastating to gun owners! Our cause is in ruins!

    •  Yes, thanks - and those definitiosn can be used (3+ / 0-)

      to determine who qualifies to possess a gun and who does not, ie, gun control.

        Set up a poll for RKBA members. See how many think "Danger to self or others" is a good reason to not let someone have a gun. My guess is it would be all of them who think that's a very good reason to not let someone have a gun.

        Gun control folks love to quote figures saying that gun owners are more likely to be a victim of gun violence, but never quite seem to realize that this means we have more skin in the game than non-gun owners. I'll wager RKBA members want our fellow gun owners to be safe and competent gun owners at least as much if not more than you do. We're just not fearful and authoritarian about it.

        •  Please stay focused - the point of the diary (4+ / 0-)

          is about whether the Colorado recall elections doomed gun control.

          The state GOP had a front row seat to those recall elections and they just voted for MORE gun control.

          The Colorado state GOP is not afraid they will lose they jobs if they vote for gun control.

          This diary isn't about the DKos RKBA group.

          It's about politicians voting against the gun lobby.
