In this 2013 Colorado legislative session our Democratic governor, senators and representatives have continually turned their backs on the law abiding citizens of this great state and in the process have greatly enabled the criminals in our society. By defeating Jessica's law they have favored the child predator over the truly innocent.
They have passed and signed into law three gun control bills that sheriffs all over the state agree will do nothing to stop criminals from getting guns. They have killed legislation that would allow a business owner to protect his or her own business with lethal force and they have made it even harder for law abiding citizens to arm and protect themselves. When writing these gun bills, why did the Democrats fail to add a minimum jail sentence for violent gun crimes? Why were they so focused on only taking our rights away?
Now if that is not enough, Democrats in Denver are working to take away the death penalty in Colorado. The argument from the left is that the death penalty is rarely used. However, that is false information. District attorneys all over the state use the death penalty as a plea bargain tool for conviction of guilty criminals. The death penalty should continue to be used as a tool for justice on the worst of offenders.
When there is no fear of punishment the criminal is emboldened and when the criminal has more rights than the law abiding citizen we no longer live in a civilized society.
