Mayor Webb's "Wall of Death" to open... come join us

Mayor Webb’s Wall of Death to be unveiled….
RMGO to be there for festivities

Denver Mayor Wellington Webb will unveil his "Wall of Death" on Thursday, Feb. 10 at 11 AM in the Denver City Building (2nd floor rotunda). This wall is supposed to commemorate the 3,100 people lost to "gun violence" in 100 American cities since the Columbine incident.

His wall, a project of the US Conference of Mayors, is more aptly named "Web’s Iron Curtain" as it is just one more assault on our freedoms that effectively makes Denver residents (and visitors) wards of a police state.

In the same vein as our peaceful but poignant march on the Governor’s Mansion last week, RMGO is joining other concerned citizens at Webb’s supposedly public event. If you can attend, please call us at our office (303-432-3006)

Warning: do NOT bring in so much as a pocket knife into the city building, as Denver is not known for being lenient in these buildings.

Gun Show Private Sale Brady Registration bill in trouble

Gun Show Private Sale Brady Registration bill in trouble

Friday, Feb. 4, 2000 -- House Bill 1242, the measure that forces Brady Registration checks on private sales at gun shows, is up against the ropes and could be killed.

Let's help that bill take a dirt nap: call these swing vote State Legislators on the House Appropriations Committee , and tell them to vote against HB1242:

Name
Area
Capitol
Home
State Rep. Debbie Allen
Aurora
303-866-2942
303-695-4920
State Rep. Gayle Berry
Grand Jct.
303-866-2582
970-255-9121
State Rep. Joyce Lawrence
Pueblo
303-866-2922

State Rep. Brady Young
Lamar
303-866-2940

State Rep. Nancy Spence
Aurora
303-866-2935
303-690-5106
State Rep. Gary McPherson
Aurora
303-866-2944

You can call any State House member toll free by dialing 1-800-811-7647.

This committee is the last barrier before the bill makes it to the House floor, where it will be much more difficult to kill.

And the gun-grabber organizations are lobbying Rep. Allen very hard - they think she is the swing vote they need, so our pressure is even more important.

All of these legislators are Republicans, but not all the Republicans are on the fence: Committee Chairman Steve Tool of Fort Collins is openly supporting this gun control bill.

Governor Bill "Gun Control" Owens is actively pushing this bill, and was the driving force (along with House Speaker Russ George) behind getting this measure out of the House Judiciary Committee.

Tell the legislators that forcing private sales at gun shows to go through Brady Registration checks is just another backdoor method at gun owner registration. The next so-called "loophole" will be private sales in the newspaper, or private transfers in your own home, like when Grandpa gives his 22 year old grandson the family shotgun.
