Sieg Heil!

At midnight tonight Colorado officially becomes a slave state when nasty little fascist Michael Bloomberg's hand-crafted unconstitutional gun laws go into effect.

Tomorrow it becomes illegal to purchase, possess or transfer a standard capacity magazine of greater than 15 rounds unless it is in your possession today. The "universal background check" laws drafted by Bloomberg's antigun lawyers and submitted by his shills in the Colorado legislature and designed specifically to entrap the innocent also go into effect.

Remember, Denver and Boulder WILL enforce these unconstitutional laws to the letter! You MUST take steps to protect yourselves!

If you must travel through Denver and Boulder, I strongly suggest that ALL magazines of greater than 15 round capacity, including grandfathered magazines, be LOCKED IN A CASE! If stopped by law enforcement in the Denver/Boulder area, under NO CONDITION agree to a search of your car, the car's trunk or any locked cases in your car or truck. Under NO CONDITION answer any questions about the content of the cases. If the heads of the IRS can take the Fifth in front of Congress, you can certainly do so with the local police. Under NO CONDITION leave a magazine with a capacity of greater than 15 rounds visible in your car or truck, or you're fair game for a search. Be polite, but be the absence of probable cause, police can't go on a fishing expedition in your car unless you let them.

Remember, the so-called "grandfather provision" is an "affirmative defense," meaning that you must make your statement of ownership prior to 1 July in front of a judge...guess how you get in front of a judge. Arrest....going to jail...being charges...having to be bailed out...big money to a criminal attorney...and, finally, a court date, where the charges will be dismissed. Do you want to risk it? And, yes, you will lose your magazine(s) and whatever guns the police manage to seize at the time.

You're going to have to make your own decision on whether to carry a CCW gun with a standard capacity magazine. Frankly, I don't think I'll be carrying a 17-round back-up magazine if I carry my Ruger SR9c, at least for the first couple of months, if my travels take me into Denver  or Boulder. Recall that when BHo was in Denver, many Denver Police Department officers volunteered to be potted plants standing behind Mr. Tele-Prompter, while officers were specifically forbidden to join those of us outside protesting the visit. Those potted plants would like nothing better than to be the first to arrest an innocent civilian for an unconstitutional law.

And although I am demonstrably paranoid, I would be very, very careful about strangers inquiring about buying guns or magazines. Both the DPD and Denver/Boulder media, including the Denver Post, would love to cast gunowners is as bad a light as possible. Let's not help them along.

Effective midnight, those of us in Colorado are officially behind enemy lines. Yes, we are fighting back on many fronts, and I do honestly believe we will take our state back from Bloomberg. But for now, the chair is against the wall.

I won't even carry anything with a removable baseplate - although I won't be going to CO again unless I'm being paid to.

Next time I'm there, I'll carry a 1911 with mags that have welded floorplates.

Keep the faith, brother Michael. Let us know if there's anything we can do to help.

Any word on what FFLs will be able to do about selling new guns with magazines? Will CO residents ever be able to buy a G17 with mags again?

The only problem is that the dolts that elected them think this is a good idea.

If I am ever required to go to Colorado or one of the other communist states and I can't talk my way out if it it will be revolvers and a pocket FULL of speed loaders for me. Hopefully you all can undo the damage that has been done.

Magazines? Yes, I Ladies Home Journal and House and Garden.

I made these tags for my own use here in Commiefornia.

Shame CO residents need them now.

Here in NY we found a few suspected state troopers trolling armslist with too good to be true deals emphasizing no background check (500 dollar AR-15 NIB back in February?!?!)

Any thoughts of packing receipts for 15+ round mags with the mags? Although I'm sure plenty of people never thought to save receipts for mags years ago, you might have a few you could photo copy and keep with the mags.

If the police search your car and touches a gun, is that an illegal transfer?

Pffftttt..... You guys make it sound so bad.

Here in New Jersey, we've been dealing with worse than that since before I was born. Hell, getting abducted and beaten by a gang isn't "Justifiable Need" to own a handgun here.

Only benefit for us is that should NJ residents still be able to keep 15 round magazines (Unlikely as that is) they will be easier for us to get since there will be more of a market.

But I feel your pain in all honesty. CO should start up a grassroots campaign like the NJSecond Amendment Society to fight this stuff. (

Never talk to the police.

The best 1/2 hour or so you can spend right now:
