Why? Well I suppose, in this particular case, the nexus of the dilemma is, gasp, the 2nd amendment itself. It has set forth, by strict interpretation, that the regulation of militia (hence their arms) is to be left up to states. One would think you, of all people, would be jumping up and down in glee that SCOTUS has re-affirmed local versus central jurisdiction.

Apparently, you heard wrong. Colorado's new restrictions upon Second Amendment rights do not take effect until July 1st.
Hopefully, between the recalls, and the lawsuits filed by half of Colorado's elected sheriffs, citizen's rights will be restored:

More obtuseness and hypocricy.

Has anyone confiscated your guns? Yet, you millions of gun owners fear that MIGHT happen. However, you think nothing of the fact that the POTENTIAL to violate you exists in The Patriot Act.

You need to educate yourself regarding citizens' abuses by virtue of the unconstitutional law.

Thank you for your insightful and fact-filled analysis of Constitutional rights...the only thing missing is the insight..and the facts.
Your link provides many cases where the website owners indicate that the Patriot Act is in direct opposition to the U.S. Constitution...the only thing missing, and what liberals never provide, is actual cases where any of those violations of the constitution have actually occurred, and the situations surrounding those cases.
Never mind the fact that the Patriot Act was originally passed with the support of liberal Democrats

No. I need to consider your arguments poppycock.

And I do!

I support the Patriot Act. It has effectively saved American lives, and done so without violation of constitutional rights.

Viva Bush!

And thank goodness for President Obama's "On the Job Training".

Nope. There's still that ole' "Shall not be infringed." thing...

The Constitution directly expresses the rights people hold..and anything else is left to the states.

"The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

Period. End of story.

On January 5, 2005, a drug runner named Noel Exinia, who was engaged in transporting over five hundreds pounds of cocaine from Mexico to New York City, revealed in a telephone conversation that he was interested in other kinds of cargo as well. He spoke about twenty Iraqis, all between the ages of 25 and 33, who would pay $8,000 to get past the Mexico-U.S. border and into the United States. These Iraqis were, he said, in the Mexican cities of Monterrey, Chiapas and Puebla, and were ready to cross into Texas; ultimately, they hoped to get to the Northeast. According to Exinia, they were “la gente de Osama”— Osama’s people. What’s more, they were “dangerous…really bad people.” Even Exinia, with all his experience in the drug underworld as part of the Gulf Cartel, admitted he was afraid of them.

No one would have known any of this, at least until these Iraqis committed a terrorist act on American soil, had it not been for the fact that Exinia’s call was recorded. The recording was permissible under the U.S. Patriot Act.

Before 9/11, our law enforcement and intelligence agencies were limited by law in what information they could share with each other. The Patriot Act tore down that wall - and officials have praised the act's value.

As former Attorney General Janet Reno told the 9/11 Commission, "Generally everything that's been done in the Patriot Act has been helpful, I think, while at the same time maintaining the balance with respect to civil liberties." And as Attorney General John Ashcroft's recent report to Congress makes clear, this change in the law has real, practical consequences.

Information-sharing facilitated by the Patriot Act, for example, was critical to the successful dismantling of terror cells in Lackawanna, Portland, Ore., and Virginia. Likewise, the information-sharing provisions contained in
the act assisted the prosecution in San Diego of those involved with an al-Qaida drugs-for-weapons plot involving "Stinger" anti-aircraft missiles.

It also aided in the prosecution of Enaam Arnaout, who had a relationship with Osama bin Laden and used his charity organization to obtain funds illicitly from unsuspecting Americans for terrorist groups.

President Obama a champion of gun rights, upholding the 2nd amendment as interpreted by gun rights advocates?

In his first year in office, Obama signed more repeals of gun laws than Bush did in eight years.

Well, as is usually the case with government, they've used the 9/11 attacks as an excuse (not reason, mind you) to go way above and beyond just simple information & intelligence sharing matters, to create a huge, incredibly expensive security apparatus on national, state, and local levels. An apparatus that, in one respect, seriously threatens the 4th amendment, if not "infringes" on. Oh, but then again, we've got you and your trusty AR-15 standing guard. LOL

No, not necessary. As I think you've posted before: Vote with your feet. Don't like the laws in one city/state/locale, then move to another where your proclivities are tolerated, if not encouraged. This sentiment is echoed in your link to the Colorado blog where most of the posters are expressing their intentions to either not move to Co as they intended to, or move out if they already live there. I might suggest Wy., or the home state or your heroine, Ak. LOL

guncite.com ? gunblast.com ? Hardly objective sources. BTW: Obama quotes, probably taken out of context, or deliberately misquoted, hardly compares to Executive actions (or inactions as the case seems to be with Obama).

Thus far, Obama has only repealed the ban on weapons in national parks and Amtrak trains, he has done little else with respect to furthering gun control as he promised.(BTW: Georgie boy reneged on his promise to make gun locks mandatory, instant background checks, and as he sweated bullets on the eve of the expiration of the assault weapons ban, his Republican buds in Congress bailed him out by not sending up an extension before he left office.) So technically, Xando is correct.

But I am encouraged by Obama's issuance of 23 executive orders dealing with gun violence. They seem to be a common sense approach to the issues of background checks, mental health vis-a-vis guns,(& you will applaud this one, Cary) information sharing amongst local, state, and federal law enforcement dealing on crazies, criminals, and other nefarious persons who either have or try to obtain guns.
