No More Sitting Ducks in Colorado Springs City Work Force – Now Employees May Carry Conceal, NOT Just Visitors

As we enter our new reality of both a federal and unprecedented state gun grab here in Colorado, every pro-Second Amendment vote is a vote worth knowing about.

From Colorado Springs Mayor Steve Bach’s Senior Communications Specialist Jarred Rego:
Mayor Steve Bach proposed a change be made to the City Employee Personnel Policy Manual, which passed 7-2 yesterday.  City employees with Concealed Carry Weapons permits will now be able to carry their weapons in City buildings (excluding Police Department facilities) . This change reverses a policy that had been in place since 2005. Previously, only visitors to City buildings  with Concealed Carry Weapons permits were able to carry their weapons in City facilities.

Who were the 2 votes against the Second Amendment?  City Council President Scott Hente and President Pro Tempore Jan Martin.

Public and elected officials are already allowed to carry concealed weapons into most of the city’s 140 or so buildings.  According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, some city officials opposed the change, saying it will not make city buildings any safer.

Eye roll to that last sentence.

Colorado Springs city buildings have just been redefined as true safety zones, and a few more sitting ducks have just been given new wings.

Just the fact that it’s now legal for city workers to carry on site redefines the leftist term “safety zone.”  If city employees utilize their concealed carry permits while in city buildings, all other employees – including those who oppose the vote – will benefit from the true safety zone that’s just been created.

COS Mayor Steve Bach

Thank you, Mayor Bach.

Law Student Lectures Police Officer on Constitution for Taking His Open Carry Gun [VIDEO]

policeandlawstudent

If only ALL of us – citizens and law enforcement alike – were as Constitutionally grounded as this law student, we as a nation might not find ourselves facing a tyrannical gun grab.  Sadly, general fear of guns – instead of criminals who would use them for evil – prevails and is driving our leftist public policy to demonize both guns and law-abiding citizens who own them.  

My note: There are places where possession of any gun is either a felony or misdemeanor, and where disarmament, confiscation, and jail-time are the legal consequence.  Don’t try this at home unless you thoroughly know both your Constitution and the laws of your state, as this student did.
