My civic duty for the day, done
And that is this: for all you Colorado residents, or even for those of you who were thinking about maybe vacationing in CO or moving here or opening a business here or investing here, I give you this list of CO Senators’ email addresses, as well as the contact information for Governor Hickenlooper, whom I suspect is beginning to realize that a massive, ideologically-driven set of anti-gun laws will completely divide the Colorado electorate, leaving the Democrats only the urban areas — as well as kill one of the most successful homegrown Colorado businesses, Magpul, who has said it will relocate should these measures (particularly, the ban on magazines over 15 rounds) be signed into law, destroying countless ancillary jobs, most especially Colorado’s plastics manufacturing industry.
All so that women can protect themselves on college campuses from rapists who now know they’re unarmed, but who henceforth must fear their prey might own a deadly whistle or may be willing to fake having their period or an STD (confusing the predator before unleashing a fearsome judo attack on men perhaps 100 pounds heavier than they). #WINNING!
– Whether they fear these poor dumb helpless dearies will be able to work a whistle without fainting first, well, that’s still up for debate. Perhaps government-funded whistle training courses are in the works. Because the truth remains, delicate creatures are these women (save for their capacity for brutal judo defenses). And certainly more dangerous for having received gun training and a CCW permit than they otherwise would be had they just taken their chances and learned to embrace the buddy system and really embraced the cult of the whistle.
To criminals, that is. More dangerous to criminals. But then, that’s just nitpicking. Because, well, gun violence! Which is always bad, even when it’s used to keep a strange man from beating you, bounding you up, and prosecuting the pussy without invitation.
For the children:

Now I have to drive north to have my oldest weighed in for a tournament tomorrow. No rest for the weary!
