Do you want the magazine ban to be repealed? How about universal background checks? If so, it’s up to you to make your voice heard. Contact your legislator (incessantly) and tell them that these two laws serve no purpose in Colorado. Tell them that these two laws only burden you, the law abiding citizen. Tell them you want to see these laws gone.
You may be saying, “What’s the point, Hickenlooper will never sign a repeal,” or you may be saying, “Repeal bills will never make it out of the house of representatives.” It doesn’t matter. One thing is certain; if we don’t push to have these laws repealed, they will be here forever. If we don’t stand up and shout that we want these bills gone, a repeal will never so much as get introduced, let alone passed or signed. Doing nothing has guaranteed results of nothing changing. Getting active and putting our legislators in the position of making a decision gives us the possibility that these laws will be placed in the dust bin of history.
We’re not selling hope that these laws are removed. We’re selling determination to see them removed. It’s the only thing “we, the people” have. Hope is a false promise, whereas the tenacity to never give up is what gets things done.
