Colorado –-(Ammoland.com)- With so much focus on the presidential election right now, I wanted to make sure you were aware of what’s happening in Colorado.
Darryl Glenn, a great friend of the Second Amendment, surprised the pundits with a resounding win in the Republican primary.
He was vastly outspent, but what Darryl lacked in money he made up for with grassroots supporters and an all-volunteer campaign staff.
Now he represents one of the few opportunities to turn a U.S. Senate seat from anti-gun to pro-gun.
And he’s taking on one of Barack Obama’s favorite Senators — Michael Bennet.
Where to begin with Bennet?
Bennet doesn’t think you should be able to buy or sell a personal firearm without first going to the government to approve the sale.
Gun shows would be a thing of the past if it were up to Bennet.
Bennet voted against a concealed carry reciprocity amendment, even though your right to self-defense shouldn’t end at the state line.
He supported ObamaCare, which has the dangerous potential to take guns away from people based on a doctor’s diagnoses (it’s already happening to military veterans).
UN Gun Control
Worst of all, Bennet voted against keeping the United States out of the UN Arms Trade Treaty.
You might want to read that sentence again.
Michael Bennet, a sitting United States Senator, voted to give up our constitutional right to own firearms — and national sovereignty — to the gun-hating United Nations.
Gun Owners of America has fought for many years to keep this treaty bottled up.
The language contained in the Arms Trade Treaty gives Obama and the anti-gun lobby all the cover they need to implement gun control measures they have long sought without any further legislation, including:
- A national registry of gun owners;
- A ban on interstate movement of any firearms;
- A ban on imported firearms; and, possibly,
- The elimination of most small gun shops through excessive regulation and paperwork requirements.
