    You are going to have to source that one for me. There actually aren't any AW bans in Colorado- just mag bans that look like AWBs; not counting the Boulder thing which isn't fully in place yet.

    I think this might be how to confiscate guns, offer a $500 reward to those who oppose gun ownership. Basically, pay one half of the country to rat out the other half. Its smart and cheap and required no additional law enforcement.

    I know most of us, including myself, only have 1 and only 1 gun because that is all we need. But there may be people out there who own several weapons, or guns that accept detachable 30 round clips, so $500 could, in reality, take 3-5 assault rifles off the street. 84k members on this forum, lets say only 70% own a gun that is evil, that is 58,800 members which would cost roughly 29 million to take any wear from 58,800- 295,000 (average of 1-5 per member) guns off our streets.


    I think the liberal progressives are going that direction. Calling on there own supporters to be snitches and rat out law abiding citizens for a small reward. I don't think this will stop with guns. It will continue on for Christians, bible owners, those who are pro life, those who stand up for the national anthem etc.
    That's Marxism 101.

    People were so paranoid under Stalinism that they would falsely accuse their own immediate family members to escape torture, a Gulag, and or death.

    We have people in this country that would turn their fellow countrymen in at breakneck speeds.

    I was actually talking about Boulder and not Colorado as a whole, my bad, but here is some links to other aggressive tactics.

    I cannot find the link about Boulder offering a $500 reward for snitching on a banned items but I know I read it. I read it on Yahoo! months ago and I usually save those stories. How else is Boulder going to enforce these new laws? They are counting on the locals to help identify "illegal gun owners".


    You have to be careful. The progressive/liberal government is smart to use catch phrases and words designed to make people take action. Words like "Illegal", "Extreme Risk", "Unstable", "Dangerous" and "Mental Illness". Those are the words that the liberals are using to describe you and me. It makes the left feel as though they are doing good by reporting you to authorities. Then the liberal go on and encourage there followers to "get involved" and be "apart of the solution", "lets make a better tomorrow".

    These ERPO laws are not designed to report a person at extreme risk to himself or others because of mental issues. ERPO is designed to report those that are thought to take the 2nd Amendment just a little too literal. Or those that have the ability to resist authority. When was there ever laws to report those who had aids? Or ISIS sympathizers? These laws only deal with firearms. Not one of these laws even mention a knife. So I can say with confidence that it has nothing to do with safety, it has everything to do with disarming and control. And the kicker is, ERPO doesn't even require much evidence except a testimony from someone close to the individual in question. And "close" is not even defined. I am led to believe that ERPO is nothing more than a kangaroo court set up by liberals who are claiming "public safety" but in reality want to confiscate firearms.

    Actually, the Boulder law had some wording in it about 'talking' to people with AWs and not arresting them straight out. The bigger picture is that the left doesn't want these laws enforced. That would create conflict. They want to pass the laws and don't really care about enforcement, now. That is why they ban stuff before they have a registry. You can never really come close to a ban with out a registry to work off of. Look at the bump stock and mag bans. All self enforced. Plus, $500 would have to come from somewhere and the last thing they want to do is go spend money on something that doesn't put money some support groups pocket.

    Pretty standard totalitarian, hell-on-earth 1984 Orwellian stuff. Widely practiced in communist regimes throughout the 20th century.

    To quote from a recent mediocre movie, "this is not going to go the way that you think." Among other history of interest, study the Northern Ireland situation from WW2 through nominal peace. And note that the UK had to use non-local troops in a multi-decade COIN operation that ultimately didn't succeed, and there was not the slightest respect for any kind of civil rights of the locals.

    IMHO, unless they stop making all ammo and ammo components, any and all gun bans will fail. Just like the war on drugs was and is a huge failure, so will the war on ** ALL** guns be a total failure. The genie has been out of the bottle for to long, and is not going back in the bottle. Acquiring ammo in the future could become much more difficult and expensive, but nobody knows for sure how this will play out .

    Generally if I have a problem, I look for a solution.
    The difference between that and a Socialist is that the Socialist wants the .Fed.Gov to step in and fix their problems and in turn, they will turn over the control of their lives to avoid finding a solution and fixing their own problems.
    In return for fixing all of your problems, the .Fed.Gov wants more of your money in the form of taxes and more control of your life in the guise of regulation and law.
    For some people who stumble fecklessly through life, this is necessary and appreciated. They enjoy the illusion of safety in cases like this, but it is just that; an illusion.
    Have fun with that because the people determined to do you harm haven't given up their guns, you have. The .gov locally cannot guarantee your safety and will usually only arrive to clean up the mess after you've called 911. In the meantime, under the false assumption of safety you've neutered your only hope of defending yourself by giving up your gun.
    Oh, you're now paying the wages of those who will impinge on your freedoms to provide that false sense of safety in the form of higher taxes.
    See how that works?
