The "progressive" mindset of many in Colorado does not surprise me. I left the state in 1967 after returning from VN to a most hostile reception.
The state has an undeserved reputation of rugged individualism and the liberal persuasion of the voters since then has resulted in a lot of "lefties" in the government.
It's a sad day for gun owners and fans of the constitution in Colorado. I take no pleasure in the demise of God given rights anywhere.
