How does the State expect this to be enforced? I'm talking about private sales. If I sold my 9 to my next door neighbor, how would anyone know? Even if the gun is used in a crime, it's not traced back to me. The record of sale stopped at the store I purchased it from. They even told me the CBI doesn't keep a record, and can't acquire them.
NOT ONE MORE INCH!
Unenforceable, just as the other BS bills. Sheriffs have already said as much. Nothing will change for day-to-day. Doesn't mean we need to stop fighting though.

If a gun is used in a crime they'll know who it belongs to immediately. This is for your safety. Think of the children. Any firearm not registered will be confiscated immediately upon discovery.
Seriously though, registration is the only viable way to eliminate private sales. People would have to register firearms already in their possession. There would have to be a reporting system for lost, stolen or sold firearms.
What guns? I don't have any guns to register!
Got a wife and kids in Baltimore jack, i went out for a ride and never went back. BS
The bill that CONFUSES me is SB196 - the one that would hold manufacturers, etc., etc. liable for "discharges" from an ASSAULT WEAPON. I'm confused about the definition of "bolt action." I have several lever action rifles and one semi-auto rifle. I'd start a new thread but don't know for sure how.
The only voice of reason I have heard in any of this came from the Colorado Sheriffs' collective voice at the Senate hearings. And it was ignored. The laws are unenforceable. Unless some branch of law enforcement pulls a sting operation. At this stage, all the new laws are just a "feel good" measure for the legislators who voted for them and doing so may help them get re-elected.

Not exactly, it will enable them to harass and/or arrest enemies of the state.
When seconds count, the police are mere minutes away...
They'll never take your "hunting rifle", they'll call it a "sniper rifle" first.
Gun registration is gun confiscation in slow motion.
Zero failures comes at infinite cost.
You are the FIRST responder. Police, fire and medical are SECOND responders.
By eliminating fear of guns you'll put fear back in criminals.
Unenforceable except with a sting (like Chicago has been doing) or after the fact.
