"When some of my friends have asked me anxiously about their boys, whether they should let them hunt, I have answered, yes - remembering that it was one of the best parts of my education - make them hunters."

Henry David Thoreau, 1854

Armed deputy at Arapahoe High School stopped bad guy with gun

LaPierre was right: Armed deputy at Arapahoe High School stopped bad guy with gun

Full article here:http://www.bizpacreview.com/2013/12/16/lapierre-was-right-armed-deputy-at-arapahoe-high-school-stopped-bad-guy-with-gun-89055
Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, was repeatedly mocked, ridiculed and castigated by the liberal left media for suggesting there be armed guards in every school in the nation after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary one year ago.
Every word uttered by LaPierre became fodder for the anti-gun, crush the Second Amendment, crowd.
“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” LaPierre was blasted for saying.
“I call on Congress today, to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation,” he said during the NRA press conference after the Sandy Hook shooting in December 2012.

Now consider the events at Colorado’s Arapahoe High School last Friday where heavily armed, dressed to kill, right wing hater Karl Pierson, 18, went on an 80-second shooting spree that ended with him taking his own life after “an armed deputy stationed at the school cornered him in the library,” the Washington Post reported.
Imagine that: the armed officer in the school stopped a bad guy with a gun.
It has to be so difficult for the mainstream media to report the facts in this case considering how the facts don’t fit the left’s usual narrative.

Pierson, “wearing a bandolier containing shotgun shells and carrying a pump-action shotgun, a machete and a backpack holding three Molotov cocktails — walked through a door adjacent to the library,” and in less than 80 seconds, had fired off five rounds, critically injuring Claire Davis, 17, who remains in a coma, before taking his own life, according to CNN.
The CNN report continued, with information from Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson:
The rampage might have resulted in many more casualties had it not been for the quick response of a deputy sheriff who was working as a school resource officer at the school, Robinson said.
Once he learned of the threat, he ran — accompanied by an unarmed school security officer and two administrators — from the cafeteria to the library, Robinson said. “It’s a fairly long hallway, but the deputy sheriff got there very quickly.”
The deputy was yelling for people to get down and identified himself as a county deputy sheriff, Robinson said. “We know for a fact that the shooter knew that the deputy was in the immediate area and, while the deputy was containing the shooter, the shooter took his own life.”
He praised the deputy’s response as “a critical element to the shooter’s decision” to kill himself, and lauded his response to hearing gunshots. “He went to the thunder,” he said. “He heard the noise of gunshot and, when many would run away from it, he ran toward it to make other people safe.”

DELTA, Colo. - Colorado Parks and Wildlife is seeking information about the theft of waterfowl decoys and hunting blinds from the Escalante State Wildlife Area near Delta on Saturday, Nov. 23. The wildlife area is located west of Delta.

According to wildlife officials, the decoys and blinds had been set up for a waterfowl hunting seminar which was to be held that afternoon. Colorado Parks and Wildlife had partnered with Ducks Unlimited members to teach kids and novices how to hunt ducks and geese. 

A white full-size pick-up truck was seen in the area of the theft at approximately 12:30 p.m. on that day. The truck had the word "Yenter" written in black letters diagonally down the door. The truck was occupied by at least two men and one dark-colored dog.

Approximately 60 duck and goose decoys had been set up on the ponds of the Escalante State Wildlife Area that morning in preparation for the seminar. Also stolen were three hunting blinds: an Avery pop-up blind, a Ground Force dog blind and a goose shell pop-up blind.  Many of the items stolen were the personal hunting equipment of a Ducks Unlimited member who was volunteering to teach the seminar.

"The theft was really disappointing because it had a negative effect on the hunting seminar," said Garett Watson, a district wildlife manager in Montrose. "Participants of the seminar were really disappointed to think that another sportsman was possibly responsible for the theft.  We had to scramble and borrow some decoys to use that day." 

Colorado Parks and Wildlife urg es the public to provide any information that may lead to the person or persons responsible. Anyone with information that can help in this investigation can call the Montrose Parks and Wildlife office at 970-252-6000, or contact Operation Game Thief, a wildlife tips hotline at 877-265-6648. Callers can remain anonymous and cash rewards may be given if the information leads to a conviction.

GUNNISON, Colo. – All hunters and anglers who are concerned about wildlife and related issues are invited to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Southwest Region "Sportsmen's Roundtable" meeting, Aug. 29 in Gunnison.
The meeting is part of the statewide "Sportsmen's Roundtable" process set up by Colorado Parks and Wildlife to assure that hunters and anglers statewide can provide input, concerns and discuss issues with leaders of the agency. The Gunnison meeting will be the third in the southwest region related to the roundtable process.
In January, a panel of 24 sportsmen was elected and appointed to the statewide roundtable panel. Members represent every corner of Colorado. That group has met twice this year.
The Gunnison meeting will be attended by several southwest region Parks and Wildlife staff members and by at least four of the six southwest representatives to the statewide panel.
The roundtable members will talk about the work of the statewide group, the issues it is discussing and future plans. Agency staff will also talk about current issues and projects, and take questions from the public.
"The roundtable process is being led by hunters and anglers," said Patt Dorsey, southwest region manager for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. "It's important that sportsmen and sportswomen in the southwest region provide input to their representatives and to the agency."
Anyone who is unable to attend but has specific questions or concerns can send that information to Joe Lewandowski, southwest region public information officer at joe.lewandowski@state.co.us, or call him at 1-970-375-6708.
The southwest region includes, roughly, the area from the Four Corners to the San Luis Valley, the Gunnison Basin, the North Fork Valley, and the Montrose-Delta area west to the state line.
The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 29 at the Parks and wildlife office in Gunnison, 300 W. New York Ave.

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Every hunting season brings novice mule deer hunters into the field, eager to learn and have a successful hunt. For new hunters that may not have a mentor, or experienced hunters that are looking for an edge, Colorado Parks and Wildlife will host a free, Mule Deer Hunting 101 class, Tuesday, Aug. 27 beginning at 6 p.m. at the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Hunter Education Building, 711 Independent Avenue in Grand Junction.

The seminar will cover mule deer habitat, biology, animal distribution, hunting strategies and hunting equipment. Regulations, field dressing techniques and recipes will also be discussed.

"In addition to the material covered, conversations and sharing of information is a beneficial part of the class," said Dick Severin, assistant Hunter Outreach Coordinator for CPW. "Students will have an opportunity to learn from hunting experts and from each other."

Colorado Parks and Wildlife believes many hunters don't participate due to a lack of mentors that can teach them the finer points of hunting. Through the agency's Hunter Outreach Program, seminars like Mule Deer 101 helps introduce hunting knowledge and traditions to a new generation of Colorado's sportsmen, including women and youth.

Registration is required and space is limited. To reserve your spot, call 970-255-6100 , or go to www.register-ed.com/events/view/35688

Who: Colorado Parks and Wildlife
What: Mule Deer Hunting 101 course
When: Tuesday, Aug. 27, 6 - 9 p.m.
Where: Colorado Parks and Wildlife Hunter Education Building, 711 Independent Ave., Grand Junction
Registration: Call 970-255-6100, or visit www.register-ed.com/events/view/35688

RIFLE, Colo. - Colorado Parks and Wildlife is planning major improvements to the shooting range at the West Rifle Creek State Wildlife Area beginning Monday, Aug. 12. When completed, the improved range will provide Garfield County hunters and firearm enthusiasts with a safe, high-end public shooting area.

Scheduled work will improve access, parking and walking areas and includes the construction of several new rifle and pistol lanes. To allow for construction equipment and user safety, the range will be closed for approximately five to six weeks. The rest of the SWA will remain open to the public during the construction phase.

"The current range is not in the best shape and these improvements are needed," said Area Wildlife Manager JT Romatzke. "We are constantly working to provide the public with clean and safe shooting facilities and anyone who has used this range in the past will greatly appreciate the upgrades."

In addition to hunters sighting in their scopes and target practice for firearms enthusiasts, the improvements will aid local law enforcement agencies by providing an appropriate and safe area for firearms training.

Romatzke adds that minor delays pushed the construction start date close to the approaching hunting seasons, but says the overall goal will be worth any inconvenience.

"If construction proceeds as scheduled, we expect that shooters can resume using the facility by the end of September," he said.

The majority of the $150,000 project is funded with sportsmen's dollars in addition to a small percentage coming from federal excise taxes on the sale of hunting and fishing equipment.

During the temporary closure, shooting enthusiast can find an alternate range by visiting wildlife.state.co.us/Hunting/ShootingRanges/Pages/NWRanges.aspx

DENVER - Colorado Parks and Wildlife is reminding women and youth interested in learning how to hunt big or small game - including deer, elk, pronghorn, upland birds or waterfowl - that the deadline to  participate in the agency's  Hunter Outreach Program is Thursday, Aug. 1, before 5 p.m.

Applications for the 'Women Afield' and 'Youth Hunting' hunts can be found at www.bit.ly/womenafieldapp and at www.bit.ly/youthhuntapp

The Hunter Outreach Program provides guidance and mentorships to novice women and youth hunters through various clinics, workshops, seminars and private-land hunts that instill the knowledge, skills, ethics and traditions of hunting.

"Hunting is a big part of Colorado's heritage and a very important part of wildlife management," said Hunter Outreach Coordinator Jim Bulger. "Many women and youth want to participate but do not have someone to show them how, so that is why these programs are so valuable to the aspiring hunter."

The Women Afield Program is designed to allow novice hunters and anglers to learn alongside other women in a comfortable environment. The program's summertime seminars and clinics cover basic shooting, fishing and archery skills in the classroom or range with plenty of "hands-on" experience. Although not required to participate, the clinics and seminars prepare them for the opportunity to apply for mentore d big game, pheasant and waterfowl hunts during the fall.

The Youth Hunting Program also provides inexperienced hunters between the ages of 10 and 17 with a variety of clinics and seminars. The mentoring and guidance during the clinics and hunts ensures that they have a positive, outdoor experience that can lead to a lifelong respect and enjoyment of the outdoors.

"Too many of our youth are not participating in healthy outdoor activities, and that is a concern," said Kathleen Tadvick, hunter outreach coordinator in Grand Junction. "Whether they are successful in the field or not, hunting is a powerful experience that teaches responsibility, ethics, outdoor skills, knowledge of wildlife, firearms skills and physical fitness, among many other positive attributes."

Youth between the ages of 12 and 17 can participate in in mentored big game hunts and youth between 10 and 17 are also eligible for mentored upland game and waterfowl hunts.

Hunt applications submitted to the Hunter Outreach Program are selected by random drawing. Successful applicants are offered a hunt by the outreach coordinator. If the successful applicant accepts the hunt, they are “booked” on that hunt and will be contacted by the Huntmaster in charge. If the hunt is declined, the hunt is offered to another hunter.

Colorado sheriffs won't enforce governor's gun laws


Paul Bedard

Washington Secrets
The Washington Examiner
In a stunning rebuke to gun control laws just signed by Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, several state sheriffs say they won't enforce the new rules because they say it robs weapons from law-abiding citizens--but not criminals.
Calling Second Amendment rights more important than a rush to soothe citizens outraged . . . [snip]
The rebuke comes on the heels of a position the state sheriffs association took to reject national gun control out of concern it unconstitutionally limits the types of weapons state citizens are allowed to have.
According to the Steamboat Today, Moffat County Sheriff Tim Jantz said that there is nothing requiring him to enforce every state law.

Sheriffs against enforcement of new gun laws

-From the Chanel 8 News page (HERE)
Routt County Sheriff Garrett Wiggins and Moffat County Sheriff Tim Jantz say they will not enforce gun-control measures signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper on Wednesday.


 Similar opposition to such laws has been voiced by several other sheriffs in Colorado, including Sheriff Stan Hilkey of Mesa County and Sheriff Lou Vallario of Garfield County.

Read the entire artilce (HERE)

AND THIS JUST IN: (from  Moe Lane)  Links are underlined

  • Weld County Sheriff John Cooke: “The sheriff told the [Greeley Tribune] that he and other county sheriffs “won’t bother enforcing” the laws because it won’t be possible to keep track of how gun owners are complying with the new requirements.”
  • El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa: “Maketa said his office keeps records of every concealed carry permit holder in the county as required by law, but he would never share it. He said he would destroy the database if anyone tried to get their hands on it and would intervene if government agents started arresting county residents for exercising their constitutional rights.” El Paso County, by the way, is the most populous county in Colorado (yes, even larger than Denver County, which does not have an elected sheriff).

Colo. Sheriff Refuses to Enforce Gun-Control Bills

A Colorado sheriff says he won't enforce two aggressive gun-control measures waiting to be signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper.

Weld County Sheriff John Cooke told The Greeley Tribune
( http://bit.ly/141Ee2z ) that Democratic lawmakers are scrambling after recent mass shootings, and the bills are "feel-good, knee-jerk reactions that are unenforceable." [snip]

The sheriff said he "won't bother enforcing" the laws because it would be impossible for officers to keep track of how the requirements are being met by gun owners — and he and other sheriffs are considering suing the state to block the measures if they are signed into law.

From fellow blogger Seamus M.

     It sounds like Colorado Democrat Senator Evie Hudak would rather that victims of violent crime subject themselves to the depradations of their assailant rather than stand up to them.  So ladies and gentlemen, I ask you- are you going to throw yourself on the mercy of a murderer, mugger, rapist?  Or are you going to stand up to them and say, "Not only no, but HELL NO!"  (and by 'them', I mean rapists, murderers AND legislators who seek to disarm law-abiding citizens preferentially over criminals.)

Anti-Gun Senators

I am repeating a post put up by Rick Wagner at his blog THE WAR ON WRONG  and Gene K. on his blog Living the Grand Life.  It is important to contact these legislators.  I suggest something along the line  -

 "I strongly oppose the ineffective and fanatical anti-gun bills being pushed through the legislature. I do not think the Colorado legislature has the legal authority to infringe an inalienable right.

 I'm a conservative and will probably never vote for you, BUT if you vote to infringe second amendment rights I will provide as much money as possible to defeat you in your next election."


The future of our Second Amendment rights lies in the hands of a few key senators in the Colorado Senate.  If you do not contact these elected officials in opposition to these ineffective and fanatical anti-gun bills being pushed through the legislature, your firearms freedoms could be stolen away in a matter of days.  The Senate is expected to hear the following anti-gun legislation the first week of March:
House Bill 1224 – Bans magazines with a capacity greater than 15 rounds. (Passed by a 34-31 vote in the House.)

House Bill 1226 – Repeals current law allowing individuals with a concealed carry permit to carry a firearm for self-defense on a college or university campus. (Passed by a 34-31 vote in the House.)

House Bill 1228 – Imposes a “gun tax” for a background check when purchasing a firearm. (Passed by a 33-32 vote in the House.)

House Bill 1229 – Criminalizes the private transfer of a firearm. (Passed by a 36-29 vote in the House.)

The Senate is our last line of defense to stop these unconstitutional measures from being sent to Governor John Hickenlooper (D) for his signature!

Please call, email, and use social media to contact the legislators listed below, as they will play a vital role in determining whether or not these unconstitutional measures pass during the first week of March.  Hold your legislators accountable by asking how they plan to vote on this legislation.

Palisade shooting range update

From KKCO 

Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO) - The town of Palisade may just be getting a new shooting range.
At Tuesday night’s board of trustees meeting an updated presentation was given to the board on the shooting range.
The board will share the presentation with the Department of Wildlife, who will then present the plan to Excel Energy. Excel Energy owns the land where the proposed range would be located. Palisade's Mayor says the range would benefit the entire valley "this is going to give them the opportunity to come out and shoot in a controlled environment . The town of Palisade is going to benefit the entire western slope and the Grand Valley will benefit. It’s going to benefit everybody in the valley," says Rodger Granat, Palisade Mayor.

Defend Gun Rights

He Must Be Stopped Now
Before He Destroys The U.S. Constitution

While Attorney General Eric Holder was still a U.S. Attorney, he said, "We have to brainwash the American people so they think differently about guns." 

Now, as Attorney General, Holder says President Obama has asked him to expand the list of people "not entitled to have guns." 

"Not entitled to have guns?" Where in the Second Amendment does it say the right to own and bear arms is guaranteed ONLY IF you are not on a government list of people NOT ENTITLED to have guns? This idea is so convoluted it is difficult to write plainly.
The Second Amendment says, the right of the people, ALL PEOPLE, to "keep and bear arms shall not be infringed," period.  Claiming and exercising the executive power to selectively determine who may and may not enjoy the protections of the U.S. Constitution is the act of a power-crazed politician, AND IT IS GROUNDS FOR IMPEACHMENT—a "high crime and misdemeanor" by any reasonable definition of the term.

The President Has Gone Rogue
He Must Be Stopped Now Before He Destroys The U.S. Constitution

The president has no constitutional lawmaking authority whatsoever—his constitutional role is to executive/implement the law, not make it. The job of the chief executive is to see to it that constitutional laws duly enacted by the Congress and signed by the president are faithfully executed.  Therefore, the president is always two steps removed from affecting any legitimate law. In the case of making, rules, regulations and restrictions affecting gun ownership he is flat out BARRED from doing so by the Second Amendment, period.  
The president has no constitutional authority whatever to make a list of people NOT ENTITLED to have guns. When the president instructs the chief law enforcement officer of the country to draw up a list of people not entitled to have guns, he far exceeds any conceivable authority granted to him by the Constitution.
As reprehensible as the president’s directive to the Attorney General is, it is not surprising.  It is fully within character and just one more example of how this president holds the Congress, the Constitution and the American people in utter contempt. President Obama has demonstrated over and over, in word and in deed that he intends to govern by EXECUTIVE FIAT, Congress, the courts and the Constitution be damned.

The President Has Gone Rogue
He Must Be Stopped Now Before He Destroys The U.S. Constitution

No one should be shocked that President Obama claims the power to rewrite the Second Amendment to give himself the power to draw up a list of people NOT TO BE AFFORDED THE PROTECTION OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT.  He also claims the constitutional power and moral authority to use drones and assassination squads to kill U.S. citizens without even charging them with a crime, without trying them in a court of law or convicting them by a jury of their peers; and he claims the authority to act as prosecutor, judge, jury and executioner in these killings, unrestrained by constitutional requirements of due process or the protections afforded a person accused of a crime by the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Eighth Amendments.
Judge Andrew Napolitano exposed Obama's personal campaign of assassination for what it really is:
“The power claimed by kings and tyrants. This is about as un-American a power as one can imagine. This is in direct defiance of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees due process, a jury trial before the government can take your life or liberty. This is in defiance of federal law, state laws and treaties to which the United States is a party.”
Napolitano further described the secret, recently leaked Justice Department memorandum used to justify the presidential assassination program as "breathtaking and chilling in the cavalier way in which it suggests that the president—actually it doesn't even say 'the president'—it says any 'informed, high-level U.S. government official' can strip an American of his or her constitutional protections and order the killing of that American.'"

The President Has Gone Rogue
He Must Be Stopped Now Before He Destroys The U.S. Constitution

Yes, Barack Obama has gone into business stripping Americans of their constitutional rights. The President of the United States has gone rogue. 
He must be stopped.

DENVER - Colorado Parks and Wildlife is looking for volunteers to serve on a new statewide advisory panel that will provide feedback for the agency on hunting, fishing and wildlife management issues in Colorado. 

The Colorado Sportsmen’s Roundtable will meet twice a year to discuss issues and help the agency understand the views and ideas of Colorado’s hunters and anglers. The agency hopes the group will provide a forum for identifying important issues and working with sportsmen to help protect fish, wildlife and habitat as well as preserving Colorado’s hunting heritage.

"Hunters and anglers are the champions of wildlife conservation in Colorado," said Rick Cables, Director of Colorado Parks and Wildlife. "We want their advice and ideas as we tackle the issues facing our state."

Individuals interested in serving on the Colorado Sportsmen’s Roundtable can complete a short online application to describe their involvement in hunting and fishing and their interest in representing their fellow hunters and anglers. The application can be completed at http://wildlife.state.co.us/Hunting/Pages/Roundtable.aspx. Sixteen individuals will be chosen to serve one or two year terms on the Roundtable. The deadline for applying is Friday, Feb. 15. The first meeting of the group will occur in late March. The group will also include individuals selected at regional “caucus” meetings to occur over the next few months around the state. 

For additional information on this process, contact Dave Chadwick at dave.chadwick@state.co.us or 303-291-7174.

Read this before? Here it is again!!

George Washington: "Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence ... from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable ... the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."

Thomas Jefferson: "Those who hammer their guns into plowshares will plow for those who do not."

George Mason, co-author of the Second Amendment : "I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."

The information below is from the APPLESEED web page located  HERE

Project Appleseed is an activity of The Revolutionary War Veterans Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to teaching every American our shared heritage and history as well as traditional rifle marksmanship skills.

Our volunteer instructors travel across the country teaching those who attend about the difficult choices, the heroic actions, and the sacrifices that the Founders made on behalf of modern Americans, all of whom are their “progeny.”

Our heritage program vividly portrays the Battles of Lexington and Concord with the kind of care and immediacy that is absent from most formal schooling. Modern listeners are confronted with the danger, the fear, and the heartbreaking separations that arose out of the choices made on April 19th, 1775. They are also reminded of the marksmanship skills and masterful organization that ultimately helped set the colonists on the path to success. Those who attend gain a better understanding of the fundamental choices faced by our ancestors as they began to set the stage for the nation we now enjoy.
