    Doesn't almost every metropolitan area in existence predate the forming of the state they're in? That's sort of how they justify the population TO become a state...

    Not my rationalization, that’s just the way it’s playing out there.

    I wasn't criticizing you. Just mocking the idiot judge that agreed with that argument.

    Looks like they invalidated some of the law but let other parts stand due to the reasoning mentioned below. Looks like Boulder could still easily be challenged in the courts based on the fact that Denver's violent crime rate is 2-1/2 times that of Boulder's and Boulder's crime rates, violent and property, are below state averages.

    From an article on the Giffords Law Center site:
    "In so holding, the court noted the unique characteristics that differentiate Denver from other parts of the state, such as high population density and a high crime rate, finding that these characteristics outweigh the need for statewide uniformity in these areas."

    Most people will just quietly keep their semiauto rifles and not register them. One of my co-workers has a brother who deals in antiques part time. He has been to the North Shore homes of many elderly widows whose WW II veteran husbands have hidden rifles and handguns they brought back from the European and Pacific battlegrounds. He has a LTC and acquired a few from these women who are not licenced and have had these unlicensed weapons in their homes for decades. They just kept their mouths shut and no one was the wiser. He left the Owen that he found in the attic. Knew better than to touch it.

    Well....You're not wrong, but what has that got to do with preemption in Colorodo and the precedent Denver set running their ban up through the courts and the bearing that precedent might have on a ban in Boulder?
    Oh, and your co-worker's brother is a pussy for not touching that Owen.

    sssssowait... the court can invalidate an act of the legislature because they failed specifically to include, "...and Denver, too!" ??!? Is such a requirement of legislative language some peculiarity of the Colorado Constitution, or is the court making this up out of thin air? (Suspect I know the answer already.)

    Logically, in fact, one would have to conclude not part of Colorado, if state law somehow magically doesn't apply there.

    Yeah, that ruling makes no f***ing sense. That should've been taken to the Supreme Court.

    My favorite part of their logic is, ok, you guys in Denver haven't got your shit together enough to keep people from breaking the laws we already have so, sure, you can pas some more, extra-special laws that are otherwise illegal.

    W.T.F?-over-

    And let's deny the constitution and make law abiding Americans criminals. Why not register all people people here illegally?
    Common sense liberalism in action. LOL
    Registration = confiscation

    The only problem with non-compliance with all of these schemes is...you are still denied the use of your property. In the case of Boulder, someone could sneak it out of the city to a range to use, but what do you do in the case of a whole state banning something? Same with bumpstocks. No one turns them in, but how do you ever get to use it then?

    Of course, the other issue (intended of course by the antis) as it relates to all banned, gun-related things is the long-term effect of new gun owners/shooters not being introduced to them and thus not having an interest in them. This marginalizes gun-related things to all but those who keep them hidden.

    Our side must reject outright the premise - lie - that is being put forth by their side. There is no "gun" crime or "gun" violence. There is only crime and violence.

    Antigun argument: "Gun violence claims the lives of x# people every year"
    Our immediate counter-argument: "Guns are used by 20-50 times x# of people every year to SAVE lives from ALL types of crime and violence."

    Then send/cite them one, two or three news stories - easy to find - that illustrate, lopsidedly that there are many, MANY more people alive and unharmed in America today because they were armed when it counted. FORCE them to counter-argue their original point. They won't be able to do it!

    We have to go on offense now - verbally speaking. Just my .02 cents worth.

    You're forgetting that by selfishly saving themselves, they snuffed out the life of a young person with potential to do AMAZING things in this world.

    What if that youthful offender would have grown up to be the next Albert Einstein?

    Yes, the libs really do think like that...
