The rabidly anti-gun Denvre Post reports Boulder is plotting a ban on sport Utility Rifles, which they dub Assault weapons.
As we know, SUR’s are built with many items such as stocks, barrels, and magazines to military standards of durability, and of course resembel their fully automatic miltary counterpart. The rugget result is ideal for the rancher seeking to protect his calf crom from coyotes, fence ccutting rustles, and other predators both two legged and four.
Sport Utility Rifles and their military look-alikes, assault rifles, such as the M4 and M16, are used to kill less than 100 Americans a year, about equally divided between “Official Intervention” or police killings and civilian self defense and “depraved heart” murder deaths.
Despite the amazingly small number of murders committed with SUR’s, the gun ban industry has demonized both Sport Utility Rifles and their owners since late 1986. the results of that campaign can be seen in the chart below, which shows the number of mass shootings since 1
The red columns show the results of the gun ban indusrty’s “assault weapons ban” campaign.
It is absolutely obvious that Sport Utility rifles are enormously useful to the police and the law abiding – but thanks to the gun ban industry have an undeserved case of bad publicity.
Publicity the rabidly anti-gun Denver Post perpetuates with the pro-ban propaganda. The item, a warning to the ban groups who get millions every year from gun ban funders not to stir up the shooting community before an election. Briefly quoting the anti-gun itme linked above:
upporters of Boulder’s proposed ban on assault weapons, bump stocks and high-capacity magazines are imploring the City Council not to put the proposal to a public vote in November, and rather to pass the ban at the council level as soon as possible.
Coloradans who are members of our most law abiding demographic should already be aware that every elective seat will have a gun banner running for it.
We have no friends in the democratic Party, or at least not one friend willing to speak up for our right to defend ourselves, and State and county officials who will not represent the interests of the people, come what may, are worthless.
It is time for a change in the Colorado legislature, and in colorado Court houses and city hassl as well.
