Colorado: Denver City Council Chasing “Ghost” Guns

U.S.A. -( On January 3rd, 2022, the Denver City Council will vote on a bill to ban custom-made firearms, which are currently referred to as “ghost guns.” This means we only have a few days left to stop the City of Denver from infringing on law-abiding citizens’ Second Amendment rights. Please contact your City Council and respectfully ask them to OPPOSE the “ghost gun” ban.

Earlier this year, Governor Polis signed SB21-256 into law, giving cities and local governments in Colorado the authority to establish their own gun regulations that are more stringent than state law. Using this authority, the Denver city council now seeks to criminalize custom gun makers and their customers by passing a bill banning “ghost guns.” Repealing the state preemption law gives the anti-gun-controlled city council the opportunity to push their encroachment on the Second Amendment, instead of tackling the real issue of crime.

Not only is the City Council wanting to make criminals out of law-abiding citizens, but they want to address the imaginary issue of “ghost guns.” There is scant evidence that these types of custom firearms are used in crimes in Denver or any other city in Colorado. Criminals are not interested in costly equipment and the time-consuming and laborious process of manufacturing their own firearms when they can simply remove serial numbers from firearms to achieve the same purpose.

Again, please contact your City Council before Monday, January 3rd, 2022, and ask them to OPPOSE the “ghost gun” banThe sign-up for public comment on the Denver bill starts at noon on Friday, 12-31-21.

Do criminals even bother to obliterate serial numbers? There I thought they just steal or purchase firearms off black market. They don’t give a hoot who gets hung up when gun gets traced.

Are there any stats, anywhere, on how often gun tracing contributes significantly to solving a crime? My guess is the frequency is low enough to effectively be zero. Making serial numbers irrelevant for crime prevention.

If I remember right, the Canadian government decided a number of years ago to to use serial numbers to help solve crime and that was (at least one of) their justification to pass mandatory firearms registration and an article I read showed that it was a waste of a lot of taxpayer money.

Hitler did what exactly?

There is an acid swab technique available for “raising” the obliterated serial numbers. So obliteration attempts are useless. And like you point out, criminals don’t use guns registered to themselves, anyway. Happy New Guns.


There is no way this law would withstand a legal challenge… but then again Colorado’s democracy has been ovethrown by radicals, and their city & state courts (and election-officials) have been supplanted by leftist anti-constitutional, anti-democracy activists.


First you say “no way,” but then you lay out way it is likely to survive (at least initial) challenge. Getting civil rights case through all levels of state court and into federal courts takes time and money – meanwhile innocent victims suffer.

Fortunately if one does not live in Denver, you can drive through knowing that FOPA provides an affirmative defense. If your firearm is legal at both origination and destination cities, it is legal to carry with you while travelling directly through tyrannical cities.

It won’t get challenged for at least 10 years. That is the standard here and there hasn’t been any 2A cases in Colorado according to the Colorado supreme court which leaves a police state challenge that the supreme court will uphold what Denver does without question. Denver is extremely obedient to the demands of their master. They surrender to every little whim because obedience is their virtue. They are mentally ill and nothing will ever change this.
