This is as predictable as snow in February. The Colorado Model worked in the last election, turning both houses over to the gun-grabbers, and giving Democrat Governor John Hickenlooper plenty of cover to implement his anti-gun agenda. Here is how the model works:
Eric O’Keefe, chairman of the conservative Sam Adams Alliance in Chicago, says there are seven “capacities” that are required to drive a successful political strategy and keep it on offense:  the capacity to generate intellectual ammunition,  to pursue investigations,  to mobilize for elections,  to fight media bias,  to pursue strategic litigation,  to train new leaders, and  to sustain a presence in the new media. Colorado liberals have now created institutions that possess all seven capacities.
The natural predictable result? Proposals for gun control on the way to gun confiscation:
Recently state legislators have introduced bills on everything from universal background checks, to limiting high-capacity magazines over 10 rounds, to holding gun manufacturers and dealers liable if their products fall into dangerous hands—a bill that actually runs counter to current federal law, which protects gun makers and sellers.
As Awr Hawkins noted at Breitbart.com:
If universal background checks are implemented, they will not only stop private sales and close the “gun show loophole,” but will also take away a grandfather’s ability to simply give his favorite rifle to his grandson or for a mother to give a handgun to her daughter for self-defense.
In both scenarios, the guns will have to be registered, the government will have to be notified, specified fees will have to be paid, and background checks will have to be performed.
The measure to add a fee to existing background checks for gun purchases is nothing less than a new state-level tax on gun purchases. If this law passes, the fee could eventually be raised high enough to rule out buying a gun in the first place.
Which, of course, is the whole point, and the end point. The fact that such laws make no sense doesn’t matter. Colorado state Senator Greg Brophy said allowing victims to sue gun makers “is the equivalent of holding Coors … and the 7-Eleven from which the 12-pack of beer was stolen responsible for the drunk driving accident.”
Logic doesn’t apply. History does. I’ve quoted this before, and I’ll probably quote it again:
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. – Adolph Hitler
