Hunters begin boycott over Colorado gun laws

Quote:Hunters across the country are boycotting Colorado because of recent legislation meant to curtail gun violence.
Michael Bane, a producer for The Outdoor Channel, announced he will no longer film his four shows in Colorado, and hunters are joining the protests.
Hunting outfitters say people began cancelling trips after the legislation passed, the Colorado Springs Gazette reported (http://tinyurl.com/cfbquoy ). The numbers are few, but growing.

Legislative leaders declined to comment.

Jurney said he expects the actual impact of gun regulations on Colorado hunters will be small. Varmint hunters tend to use high-capacity magazines, so they might be limited. He also is concerned about a provision that limits the loaning of a gun to 72 hours. Many youth hunts, in which most guns are loaned, last longer, he said.
Jeff Lepp, owner of Specialty Sports, a gun and hunting shop in Colorado Springs, predicts hunters are going to choose to visit other Rocky Mountain states.
"Small mountain towns and rural towns in this state are going to lose a lot of money because you're not going to see the number of out-of-state hunters coming here. Other states are going to see a growth," he said.

Sadly, the rural and mountain residents probably didn't favor the new regs, but they're going to pay for the dummies in Denver, Boulder, and Ft. Collins.

Those same idiots probably would just as soon that people didn't come to Colorado to hunt their cute critters.

And they don't give two shits about the "hillbillies."

If enough rural and mountain residents get involved, they can vote these fools out!

BUT - with such apathy in America today - what are the odds?

How many times on this and other forums you may visit - have you heard the following:
- My vote does not count
- I do not agree w/ 100% of what any candidate says so I will not vote
- I only vote in National elections
etc...........

Based on discussions I've had with some friends of mine who stayed in Co. after they retired from the AF, there is a major groundswell occurring out there. A lot of people who had become apathetic have awakened and it seems that when the politicians woke them, they awoke with a roar.

And also, with such population density in the cities - what are the odds?

i can only hope this is the case. i really hope that traditional hunters fall into line with the defense against the current anti 2a movement.

I mention this previous times before: Wait until some jackass with a bolt action rifle takes out some high value target, and then the gun grabbers are going to want to ban everything that isn't a single shot .22LR or blackpowder musket.
