Here in "colorful Colorado", a similar "must issue" law has just passed. The local sherrif no longer has any discretion in the matter, it is a matter of state law. So much for the Republicans professed interest in local control.
At the same time, here in /colorado we have two kids dead, and one in the hospital from "firearm accidents", in the last few weeks. Parents stupid enough to keep loaded weapons accessible to children.
But our idiotic Colorado legislature wants to make it even easier for any idiot to carry loaded weapons. At the same time, any effort to require pistol locks or other safe storage requirements is somehow an infringement on these once a year deer killers of their God Given rights.
When Nixon died, I said, "once Reagan goes, my life will be complete". Reagan fucked me out of that joy by slipping into total dementia. My next best hope is to see them pry a gun out of Heston's cold dead hands. Thanks, BlueJay
