As far as CO goes... That is not what happened. There was a vote for Amendment 64, DECRIMINALIZING a small amount of weed. Which was unnecessary, as it was already possible to get a Medical Marijuana card. Which was not at all hard to get. Those who voted for the democrats did so because they wanted to .
The legislation that has passed regarding guns is extremely troubling. There was much fighting about it. But it is not "serious" gun-control. It effects current gun-owners not at all. Concealed Carry is still alive and well. The sheriffs of 30 counties have told the Governor they will NOT enforce the new laws.
So now, more people are prepared to work hard to dump those who voted for this crap. They take effect July 1. Can you imagine that the biggest buying spree I've ever seen will stop? NO. It will not. We'll see if they try to pass more laws. We fought back on this last round, and will fight more.
More Coloradans are armed now than were a year ago.
So THAT'S what's going on in Colorado. If you study your history, you'll see that the Revolutionary War was not a slam-dunk. It was a hard fight, and looked pretty dark at times.
