Gun ban for domestic abusers: Senate Bill 197, banning certain domestic violence abusers from owning guns — advances in Senate

This is already a Federal law- comes from the Lautenberg Amendment. Sen Lautenberg (D-NJ) is a famous gun grabber. Ask anyone in the Armed Forces if they've been aware of someone with a domestic abuse conviction and how long they remained a member of the Armed Forces.

So long as they do not find a way to mess up the hunting. I do like to go up there and hunt.

Outdoor Channel Standing Tall

"Bane recently sent an email to state Senator Steve King (R-Grand Junction) warning him that if the gun bills under consideration by the state senate pass, the channel would say good-bye to the centennial state.

Bane wrote in the email, “This morning I met with my three producers, and we made the decision that if these anti-gun bills become law, we will be moving all of our production out of Colorado. We have already cancelled a scheduled filming session for late this month.”

Not only will Bane–host of Outdoor Channel’s Shooting Gallery–and his colleagues abstain from filming the state, they will also not recommend Colorado in their shows.

“The message we will take to our viewers and listeners is that these proposed laws are so dangerous to hunters and any other person, be she a fisherman or a skier who brings a handgun into the state for self-defense, that we cannot recommend hunting, fishing, or visiting Colorado,” Bane wrote. “We reach millions of people, and, quite frankly, we have a credibility that Colorado government officials can no longer match.”

The move is another blow to Colorado’s economy in addition to the ever-growing list of companies withdrawing from the state. Bane described the Outdoor Channel as “relatively small potatoes” but nonetheless, the relocation of productions currently scheduled for Colorado could set the state back a million dollars in 2013.

Bane compared the decisions of Colorado lawmakers to the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, whose event organizers decided to exclude modern sporting rifles and triggered an overwhelmingly negative response. The show was cancelled due to criticism from both the industry and individual sportsmen. Bane asserts that a similar grassroots “boycott” will happen to Colorado.

“Colorado is going to pay a huge price for laws that will do nothing,” Bane concluded. The email ended with the producer thanking Senator King for his support.

A formal vote on the measures by the Colorado Senate is expected today.

A copy of the email is hosted on Colorado Senate News."

All four remaining bills passed today. They are on their way to the Senate. One step closer to becoming law... and it appears they will pass the next step with ease based on the way the votes were cast today. The results are listed on the website for the Denver Post.

just an fyi on hunting in colorado.
the state relies heavily on the tourism dollars generated by the hunters. you pay thousands to hunt, more for lodging, food, buy gas, etc.
why would you contribute to a state that will come after your rights and attack the 2nd?

Not sure that it is a good idea to torpedo a Colorado outfitter, a guy who will surely feel the sting of hunters bypassing the state. I'm certain that the outfitting industry, to a man, opposed the Colorado measures. It is unfair to subject the outfitter to the collateral damage of a boycott; it is his living afterall.

Now, DIY hunts......no mas! Skiing, hiking, camping, etc.....gone with the wind! But if you generally use an outfitter for your hunting, you might show a little compassion. Your boycott may (or may not) hurt the state; but it will surely do serious damage to the average Joe Outfitter.

I hate to say it but the collateral damage of joe blow outfitter is necessary if there is any chance common sense returning to that once great state. Hopefully their economy will crumble due the large instant decrease in tax revenue from the companies that all pack up and leave. I Magpul is loading up their moving vans now. I hope they come here.

I've always said you punish these insane states/politicians financially and you get their attention.

We will see if they get reelected if these laws are passed. I'm not optimistic that these companies will follow through with their threats to move.
