Colorado Dems Shoot Down Three Gun Control Repeals

Democrats in Colorado successfully squashed a repeal of the state’s universal background check law and 15 cartridge magazine cap.

The House Committee on State, Veterans and Military Affairs voted to indefinitely postpone the two bills, which had previously passed the Republican-controlled Senate.

Senate Bill 86 and 175 were passed in the months after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012. The former bill would have removed expanded background check language applicable to private sales, while the latter would have repealed the state’s prohibition on the sale, transfer and possession of “large-capacity” magazines.

Colorado’s House Committee on State, Veterans and Military Affairs also indefinitely postponed House Bill 1169, which would have eliminated gun free zones around the state’s elementary, middle, junior high and high schools and allowed lawful concealed carry on public school grounds.

Republican Rep. Patrick Neville of Castle Rock, a survivor of the 1999 Columbine shooting, sponsored House Bill 1169.

“I remember fathers coming up to me whose sons I knew well, asking where they were,” Rep. Neville told the Colorado Independent. “People I’d known since elementary school are no longer with us today. I think some of the staff who were heroic in so many ways that day, if they’d had the ability to equip themselves, some of my friends might still be with us.”

Colorado stands up to protect Gosnell methods

Colorado Decriminalizes Gosnell Abortion Methods – No Rights For Unborns

By / 11 May 2013

In close coordination with Planned Parenthood, Democrat lawmakers have repealed the Colorado criminal abortion statutes which is the premise of the newly passed House Bill 1154 – prohibiting criminal prosecution of abortionists like Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell – making it legal in Colorado to kill a child, regardless of the circumstances surrounding his/her birth.

The bill simply decriminalizes any act perpetrated against the child and trivializes it to nothing more than property damage.

The bill states that

“nothing in this act shall be construed to confer personhood, or any rights associated with that status, on a human being at any time prior to live birth. Nothing in this article shall permit the prosecution of a person for any act of providing medical, surgical or any other type of care.”

According to WND.com the Democrats who sponsored and lobbied for the measure are led by Senate President John Morse, majority caucus chair Jeanne Nicholson and House Speaker Mark Ferrandino.

The bill repeals the Colorado criminal abortion statutes and in addition removes freedom of conscience – or, a health care workers right to refuse to be a part of an abortion procedure (so much for choice – so hypocritical). It also protects an abortionist in the case that a minor is brought in to have an abortion, perhaps by her parents or guardian, against her own will. In that circumstance the abortionist cannot be charged.

Colorado Dems adopt ‘Kermit Gosnell Enabler Act’

Repeal[of] ‘criminal abortion statutes’ across state
Jack Minor – WND

On the heels of Kermit Gosnell’s extended abortion murder trial in Philadelphia, in which he was accused of killing infants who had been born alive by using a scissors to cut their spinal cords, majority Democrats in Colorado have adopted a strategy to prevent any such prosecution in Colorado

The Democrats are led by Senate President John Morse, majority caucus chair Jeanne Nicholson and House Speaker Mark Ferrandino. One opponent has come up with a striking name for House Bill 1154, which repeals certain state criminal statutes regarding the abortion procedure.

“Under guise of protecting pregnant women, this bill repeals the Colorado criminal abortion statutes, which in some respects, makes this the Kermit Gosnell Enabler Act,” Colorado Rep. Lori Saine, R-Dacono, told WND.

“In addition, HB 1154 repeals part of the statute that protects freedom of conscience – severing the rights of hospitals, doctors and medical staff to refuse [to participate] in abortions.” /…

To receive the approval of Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups, the  bill plainly specifies it does not consider the unborn child to be anything  other than an inanimate object on a par with any other property that is  destroyed by a criminal.

Ah yes, so much for choice and freedom of concience. Anyone who thought Gosnell was just a blip on the radar isn’t paying attention. Where are all those who say what Gosnell was doing was clearly wrong and illegal?

“Shocked”. Should I say prepare to have your conscience shocked, seared, then extracted like a tumor? ‘Yea, that’s the ticket’.

Then there are Liberals carping away, Gosnell is not representative of the industry. Meanwhile, they want to enshrine him as the poster boy. And the crickets keep on chirping on the left.

It could be Gosnell’s methods just lack a great name like Abu Ghraib they can rail against. That must be it. Maybe it needs a place associated with it…. how about Colorado USA?

Remove conscience from its packaging,
dig a deep hole,
place seared conscience at the bottom,
cover with removed dirt.
