Woe unto thee Colorado

Colorado yesterday became a member of the socialist order. If blame is to be assessed at all, it must squarely nest in the lap of Republicans. The utter mis-handling of the ongoing war on terror. The pathetic response to the invasion of illegal immigrants. The seemingly never ending scandals and continuous spending like drunken sailors at a Tijuana cat house lead the list of unforgivable sins. But once the rose colored glasses are removed and the Democrat agenda unfolds what will be results of this electoral equivalent of a temper tantrum?

As so clearly shown by the Colorado legislature in the recent past we are about to become overwhelmed by un-Constitutional measures aimed at throttling the very life out of Liberty and freedom. Expect more attempts, with probable passing now, of clearly sexist laws; More ex post facto laws; More laws that seek to blatantly target religions with bankruptcy; More laws that place animal welfare above the lives of people; More laws that assign felony penalties for less than felony crimes; More laws that will make it impossible for the citizenry to adequately defend themselves and others from societal miscreants and terrorists.

So what is a responsible Coloradan to do in the face of all this Californification? First hide your sons and daughters. Get them into private schools where they will not be indroctinated into the leftest army of mindless authoratarianism and moral decadence. Then, hide your weapons, and gather ammunition while you still can. Become more than proficient in the use of them. Learn just who is, and who is not a foul weather friend of liberty. Remind yourself as well as others that solemn oaths that so many of us have taken upon ourselves include the words “enemies from within.” Remind people at every opportunity that liberty and freedom are what made this nation great, Colorado even more so. Not Tory style government that the Founders of these United States cleansed from this land with their very own blood.

Bill Ritter has said that his will be a Governorship of inclusiveness. To be sure the only people that will be included in any meaningful way will be socialist’s, male haters, gun haters, and purveyors of sexual deviancy.

Franklin called Democracy  “Two wolves and a lamb deciding what is for dinner.” The two wolves clearly are the Democrats and Republicans. The lamb is liberty.

    What impact, if any, will the transformational 2006 Congressional
    Election have on Second Amendment rights?

    While election 2006 may have been a referendum on many things (the
    President, war in Iraq, Jack Abramoff, Mark Foley for example), it
    does not translate into greater support for gun control at the grass
    roots level.

    If anything, gun control was notable as a non-issue in this election.
    In compiling the GOA rating, researchers could hardly find a
    congressional candidate with any stated position on gun control on
    campaign websites.

    That’s not to say many of the newly elected will not support the
    anti-gun agenda; just that they recognize open support for gun
    control will cost them at the polls.

    Unlike the newly elected members, however, the Democrat Congressional
    leadership is completely beholden to the far left anti-gun extreme of
    its party.

    House Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi (F-rated by GOA) is a charter member
    of the most extreme wing of the party she now leads. As the person
    who controls what bills come to the floor, Pelosi will be unable to
    say “No” to the appeals for more gun control by the likes of Sarah
    Brady and her congressional allies.

    The Speaker’s strongest House ally in the push for more gun control
    is long-time Democrat anti-gun activist John Conyers, the likely
    Chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

    Almost all bills related to the Second Amendment will pass through
    Conyers’ committee. The new Chairman, an extremist who advocates a
    total handgun ban, will control the schedule of the committee as well
    as which bills come up for committee vote.

    The situation in the Senate may be worse (pending the outcome of the
    Virginia senate race). Should Democrat Jim Webb hang on to win, the
    expected new Senate Majority will be F-rated Harry Reid (NV) and the
    probable incoming Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee would be
    GOA F-rated Pat Leahy of Vermont

    From there it really goes downhill.

    The rest of the Democrats currently on the committee make up the
    Who’s Who of the anti-gun movement:

    * Ted Kennedy (MA), the mouthpiece for Sarah Brady in the Senate;

    * Joe Biden (DE), who chaired the Judiciary Committee when the Brady
    bill passed in 1993, and who said at that time, famously, “The public
    and the Congress have spoken unequivocally, and I don’t care what a
    minority wants;”

    * Herb Kohl (WI), author of the “Gun Free Zones Ban;”

    * Dianne Feinstein (CA), author of the so-called “Assault Weapons”

    * Russ Feingold (WI), democrat lead sponsor of so-called campaign
    finance reform;

    * Charlie Schumer (NY), lead sponsor of the 1993 Brady law; and,

    * Dick Durbin (IL), one of the most outspoken gun control zealots in
    the senate.

    Gun owners should look twice at the above list. Most or all of these
    members will remain on the Judiciary Committee when the new Congress
    convenes in January, and will help shape American gun laws for at
    least the next two years.

    Gun Owner Victories

    There were several bright spots for gun owners this election. The
    210th Congress will include the following “A rated” members who had
    the support of Gun Owners of America’s Political Action Committee:
    Doug Lamborn (R-CO), Bill Sali (R-ID), Vern Buchanan (R-FL) Peter
    Roskam (R-IL), Tim Walberg (R-MI), Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Adrian
    Smith (R-NE), and Jim Jordan (R-OH).

    With the exception of Buchanan, who has not held elected office, each
    of these new representatives have strong, proven pro-gun records in
    their respective state legislatures. In addition, Reps. Roskam,
    Walberg, Smith and Jordan are a vast improvement over the Republicans
    they are replacing.

    Further, many of the incumbent Republicans who were defeated were not
    pro-gun. For example, Nancy Johnson (CT), Jim Leach (IA), Clay Shaw
    (FL), Curt Weldon (PA), and Charlie Bass (NH) were not strong gun
    rights supporters.

    In the Senate, ousted Republican Mike DeWine of Ohio was as anti-gun
    as Charlie Schumer. The same can be said for Lincoln Chafee (R-RI).

    Democrat Senators-elect Jon Tester (MT), and Bob Casey (PA), as well
    as Jim Webb, claim to be pro-gun. It remains to be seen if they vote
    that way.

    The bottom line: On a race-by-race basis, the pro-gun movement
    suffered a net loss of only a small handful of seats.

    However, notwithstanding widespread calls for moderation within their
    ranks, the Democrat leadership in the House and Senate will
    unquestionably put gun owners on the defensive by seeking to renew
    the so-called assault weapons ban, close down gun shows, and
    drastically expand the Brady gun control law.
