U.S.A. -( Yesterday, the Colorado Senate passed Hunter Education bill, House Bill 22-1168.  The measure joins anti-gun, House Bill 1086, which was passed out of the Senate earlier last week.  Both measures now head to the desk of Governor Jared Polis for his consideration.  Please contact Governor Polis and ask him to SIGN HB 22-1168, and to VETO HB 22-1086.


House Bill 22-1168 allows local education providers, upon entering into an agreement with an individual or entity that offers hunter education courses certified by the division of parks and wildlife (division), to provide a hunter education course (course) to all seventh graders. The course must satisfy the requirements of a hunter education course certified by the division; except that hands-on activities are not required. The course must be taught by a division-certified instructor. A parent or legal guardian must provide permission for a student to participate in any hands-on activities that are offered as part of the course.

House Bill 22-1086 “The Vote Without Fear Act” – The title itself is enough to know that sponsors and supporters of this measure hate your Second Amendment rights.  HB 1086 looks to ban the open carry of a firearm at voting locations in the Centennial state.  It is the intention of this measure to prohibit you from exercising one of your constitutional rights while engaging in another.  The irony would be funny if it wasn’t a serious and deeply-held belief by anti-gun legislators that the Second Amendment is a lesser right.

Law-abiding gun owners have the right to self-defense and are provided with options that fit their needs.  Those who choose to open carry should not be prevented from casting a vote.

Again, please contact Governor Jared Polis and ask him to SIGN HB 22-1168, and to VETO HB 22-1086.

Isn’t it somewhat ironic that the movie Red Dawn was based in Colorado. Looks like they are once again in need of some Wolverines.


When will Colorado get Constitutional Carry passed and signed into state law? They are bound to see state after state finally adopting it. The people of Colorado should have CC just like the rest of free states do. After all it is a Constitutional right.


The gun control in Colorado is always asking for money to fight for 2nd Amendment protection, but seems to fall short in their own state of Colorado!


Same from gun control in the state of Washington and their politicians in their state!


Sad to see how Kolorado has dropped into the anti-freedom bucket. Good luck having the Governor sign any pro-gun or pro-freedom legislation. I’m looking to escape Kalifornia-lite as soon as possible.
