Wrong, Mark---pressure cookers are still on the shelves at Wal-Mart and Ace----
We are thinking about you from afar. Being a small business owner in this town is tough going as we know, 6 to 7 days a week and long hours each day. Quick and painful justice for the perps!! Miss your scones----

For a smart guy, you really need to get yourself educated on this issue and I am not talking about throwing around statistics. I would start with getting a copy of the 50 states and federal firearms laws published by the ATF. Go to a beach somewhere because it will take a lot of time reading, then digesting, what these laws state. If we could rely on law enforcement, but especially the judicial system, I can cofidently say gun crime would not be the issue. Enforcement starts at the very top with the Attny Generals office and we have seen how that is working out for us . . . . .Holder has stated that he does not have the resources or ability to prosecute the gun laws we already have. For example, of the 72,000 background check denials in 2010 the Feds prosecuted 22 cases. Keep in mind that it is a felony to lie on the 4473 Federal background check form, for starters.
Tom--Guess poor "Scotty" had a senior moment forgetting about the OK City bombing as one of many examples where guns were not the "culprit". Once again, Scott, crazy is crazy and evil is evil..........sad but true.
Remember the Colo Spgs church shooting several years ago? Remember the perp had several hand guns tucked into his belt with 10 round mags--reloading not necessary. What is the point of banning large capacity mags with millions in circulation? Evil is evil, crazy is crazy. Lucky for the church the lady was armed and took the perp out, especially since the contents of his car included an address book with the next targets. Same guy that had previously attacked another church group the night before in Arvada if memory serves me right. How about Congress spend time on truly meaningful legislation--like fixing the economy and addressing the debt and deficits where just maybe we can have bi-partisan discussion.
Mark---good point . . . he prob would not "play well with others" as my 3rd teacher always accused me of...: )
Do you not understand that many sports require the use of a firearm and do not have anything to do with "killing" What about sporting clays, skeet and the pistol leagues that have competitors vying for accuracy at an inanimate target. What about the Olympic sports that require the use of a rifle? A gun is a tool and sports equipment. The shooters I know in Routt County are sporters (and most are not even hunters). And the most organic meat you can get is what you harvest afield. Much more humane to the animal that what you buy in saran covered packaging!!
What about Bike Town, USA--I thought that was the new "economic" driver. If you talk with downtown merchants, July closely matches March in gross retail sales. Relying on good snow year after year with an aging skier population is problematic. Scott, when you run for Council, I will vote for you as I trust you will get our "spending" problem under control : )
Right on, Howard!! Could not agree more--nothing worse than a lifetime politician like John and Harry and Nancy,etc. Burns me that they go into office being lower middle class and come out as part of the 1%--not to mention the lifetime of benefits they get at the taxpayers expense. Unlike what Mark says, they are totally out of touch with their electorate. If they spend a minimum of 10 years in the private sector, I might consider letting them run again if they have truly gotten a dose of reality and their constituents feel they would actually represent their interests.
