Freedom to fear for your safety

Originally reported by the Political Pale Horse.

Gang violence is growing and a pair of robbers are shooting harmless victims throughout Denver. So what does the Democratic majority do? They pass legislation to make gang members and criminals more successful in their criminal activities.

Reported by Colorado Senate News.

House legislators approved a Senate Democrat measure today barring Colorado residents on using out-of-state concealed carry permits for their self-defense needs…

Senate Bill 34, by freshman Sen. John Morse, D-Colorado Springs, and House Majority Leader Alice Madden, D-Boulder, restricts Colorado’s recognition of valid out-of-state concealed-carry firearms permits. It passed in the House by a mostly party-line vote of 36-29…

“The Legislature has taken its first shot at the Second Amendment,” said Brophy after learning of the House vote on the proposal. “I’m anxious to see if the governor will stand up for the Second Amendment or not.”

Again, why do we force people to become victims? Why can’t we let citizens defend themselves?

This must be that security thing Morse talks about on his website. We’re glad to see that you’re keeping Colorado criminals safe from harm.
