Yes I did read that. Ok, it might slow down the flow. How are you going to get the millions of unregistered guns already there in the hands of gang bangers and criminals out of their hands? Until you get those out, how long does it take for them to filter out of the system? 20 years, 40 years? Each mass shooting is a tragedy. Every weekend more people are killed in the inner city than were killed in Oregon, but it happens 1 or 2 per incident. The press and everybody else ignores that inconvenient little fact and focuses on the mass shootings which result in many fewer lost lives than the weekends.
Lisa Your letters to the editor prove the paper's bias. Counting today 10/6 there have been 5 letters for the bond issue, 2 against. You also ran an editorial saying to pass the bond issue. I only counted the letters since I noticed the bias but if you have a different count going further back than the last 7 letters., I would be happy to hear it. Today's count 2 for, 1 against.
Steve Every gang banger in the country would be scared to death to sell his gun to his buddy? Right. I have asked you repeatedly how you plan to retrieve the guns from the inner cities or register them. No reply so I guess you have no ideas on that little sticking point.
He will make more in 4 months than the average Routt county income for one year. Everyone enjoy where your tax dollars go.
Steve How do you plan on registering the guns in the inner cities? That is probably where the heaviest concentration of firearms is.
At least the Pilot published a no letter. 3 yes letters 1 no since I started counting.
What will Steamboat Pilot receive if bond issue passes? Newest count of letters to editor published THREE FOR ZERO against. Many more people read the paper than read this mess.

So that justifies 92 MILLION DOLLARS? 3680 DOLLARS FOR EVERY MAN, WOMAN, CHILD AND INFANT in Routt County! Hold graduation in the football stadium. Put closed circuit TV in the old gym. Can you get all the students in the TWO gyms? Caps added for emphasis!
I want a public shooting range. That is just as valid as using tax dollars for an ice rink, mountain bike trails, and ski areas.
It does cost money to truck it up here but not .70 per gallon. It is the Steamboat effect, land costs more, wages slightly more, building costs more, and probably most important, little volume and little competition. That Costco probably sells as much in a day as half the stations in Steamboat. We could be sitting on a freeway in California idling away 3.50 to 4.00 gas.
