In the news this morning it was confirmed that the two Tsarnaev brothers responsible for the Boston bombings did not have the necessary gun permits required for gun ownership in their city and the state of Massachusetts. So in spite of some of the strictest gun laws in the United States these two terrorists were able to procure firearms used in the killing of a campus police officer, the wounding of a transit officer, and firing numerous rounds at pursuing law enforcement officials.
This demonstrates the fallacy that these laws impact the lawless in any way, shape or form. Even full-blown confiscation doesn't work as seen in the former Soviet Union where virtually only the lawless have firearms now and no one is safe.
Thank you to the Colorado Sheriffs that understand the Second Amendment and honor the Constitution they also swore to uphold and defend and are challenging these laws that the Democrat-controlled state Congress rushed to pass without so much as a referendum or a real public discussion in their districts beforehand.
There's a remedy for the situation here in Colorado; it's called the 2014 elections.
Let's get started.
