I copied this from another site, looks ominous for Colorado.
email today from senator Greg Brophy
They did it. After listening to hours upon hours of testimony against the upcoming gun control bills, the democrats on the Colorado Senate Committees passed a slate of seven anti-gun bills. The full Senate will vote on these bills tomorrow. House Bills 1224, 1226, 1228, and 1229 and Senate Bills 195, 196, and 197, if passed, will severely restrict access to firearms, impose unjust burdens on responsible gun owners, and make Colorado a more dangerous place to live. Many of the senate democrats aren't listening to their constituents and are completely ignoring the bills’ disastrous unintended consequences.
I strongly encourage you to come to the capitol tomorrow and make your voices heard. The turnout on Monday was very encouraging; the capitol was completely packed with Second Amendment supporters and we could hear the car horns blaring outside all day long. You can no longer testify on the bills, but coming to the capitol tomorrow will still make a difference. Each senator should be made to look every one of you in the eyes before they vote on these bills.
If you can’t make it to the capitol, you can watch a live broadcast of the proceedings at http://www.coloradochannel.net/live-broadcast
Contact your state senator immediately and tell them to vote “no” on these bills. You can find your local legislators here: http://votesmart.org/
. Your legislators’ contact information can be found at http://www.leg.state.co.us/CLICS/CLI...y?openFrameset
for the House and http://www.leg.state.co.us/CLICS/CLI...n?openframeset
for the Senate. In addition to voicing your opinions, you should remind your legislators that you won’t forget their votes on these bills during the 2014 election. Remember that we’re trying to convince these senators not to vote on these bills, so please be polite and concise.
The bad news is that the majority party supports these bills. The good news is that not all senate democrats are completely behind the gun bills. Below is a list of democrat legislators the Denver Post has stated could be swayed to vote “no”:
Gail Schwartz (from a rural district-her constituents probably do not support gun control)
We need only three votes to shoot the bills down.
Don’t get discouraged. We’ve already made waves so large they’re impossible for the gun grabbers to ignore. Let’s remind these legislators that they were not elected to advance a political ideology; they were elected to represent their constituents.
