It’s Official: Fur Ban and Slaughterhouse Ban to Be Placed on Denver’s 2024 Ballot.

Lead by vegan organizations these two items will be on the Denver City ballot stop the sale of furs in the City of Denver. Oregon initiative is pushing for the same, No hunting, fishing of the use of domestic animals for human consumption. A Colorado Vegan Foundation gave $50,000 to that cause and I bet are supportive of the Denver initiative. On and on, bit by bit, our hunting and trapping tradition will be eroded as the populations and the make up of these populations are more supportive of these types of initiatives and causes. Oh, the state of Washington has a initiative to ban fur sales, just like California did years ago. Look over your shoulder as a similar ballot initiative may be heading your way.

It's about time for me to start one of those where should I move to threads. Might have to thump soccermomny cancer of ass in the back of the head on the way out just for the hell of it ;). I've lived here 25 years as of yesterday. I can't believe what this once great state has become.

Screw them. Do it anyway even if it does pass on the ballot.

The benefits of being "good law-abiding citizens". We get to have anything and everything taken away...

I respect those that want to stay and fight. Its a great place aside from turning full blue.

We are here for a while due to careers and family but once you have lived somewhere as great as Colorado was, pretty hard to give that up forever.

That's funny. I just shipped a full length Fox coat to a Person in Denver. Guess she does not keep up with politics :)

Yeah John just stand your ground and vote. Ole Dana is a man of great wisdom every time he post something. Maybe Big Gator boy will have some words of wisdom as well.

These are the idiots we have to deal with.

I got 3 years of fur, I am selling this spring. I live in another world. Not bad up here, considering back in CO.

Beedare you are spot on. In the late 60s I lived in Santa Cruz, ca on the coast. The uc moved in and absolutely ruined the area. We finally got out of there and moved to the Sierra foothills. The county was very conservative. Then the Bay Area liberal trash left because the coast was a mess and they hated it. Then they try and turn the place into the same crap hole they left from.

"How's that working out for you in Massachusetts? Clueless "

Yeah, other than losing trapping and hound hunting on the infamous 'Question One' back when, and other than the incessant gun laws, they keep passing and tightening here, I don't know nothing. Never mind that we keep fighting. Never mind that we keep running gun safety courses here to encourage new shooters. Never mind that we keep running archery events to keep shooters active and motivated. Never mind that we continue running youth archery events to bring the next generation of shooters along. Never mind that we've been speaking out for decades about the dangers of direct legislation via ballot questions.

Yeah, the battle is uphill. Go run away if you like. But don't make 'revolution' noises as if you're going to stand your ground *some day*. There will be no ground to stand on.

The Marxist democrats don’t seem to have to follow rules or laws. Civil disobedience. I have fur hats and mittens. I would definitely wear them proudly and make them fine me.

Then remind them even Russians wear fur. Their Commie role models.

Eventually, we will be forced to exercise out Federalist rights of states rights. And all pick a state or two. We all move there to be the voting majority.

In 100 years (if we last that long) there will conservative holdout states. that run smoothly, safely.

then there will be liberal crap hole states that the feds have to bail out every year.

We will see pictures on the news of them being fed off of trucks with 100 pound bags of grain

Can you imagine if liberals had no guard rails. And were able to enact all their pie in the sky dreams.

No electricity, all battery powered equipment died. Everyone living in a shoe box, no firearms, no hunting, no plastic, Men dominating all women’s sports, men and women aborting all their babies, since liberal men can now have babies. rampant crime and homelessness, all the illegal migrants are directed to their states, free everything, never hiring the most qualified. How long would their utopia last. It would be mad max in 12 months if they got everything they wanted.

As a 62 year old native of Colorado, I encourage any of you transplants who bitch about it to leave. Let me know if you find a better state to live in. I haven't found one.

No desire to live in Wyoming. I'll continue to enjoy their fishing, though, just like the army of non-residents who bash Colorado, but still invade our state every hunting season.

Matt if you're not bashing what going on in CO these days, you are part of the problem.

John, I don't like the direction of the politics any more than you do. But I'm sick of people labeling the entire state for politics that are controlled by a few urban sh!tholes. The majority of Colorado counties are still very red politically. I live in one of them, where we can open carry, our vehicles aren't smog checked, people wave at each other when they pass on the the road, neighbors help each other, kids are polite and respectful, virtually no crime or violence, no homeless people living in the streets, and the churches are full every Sunday.

If non-resident hunters are so offended by our politics, they should stop being hypocritical and stay TF away. But we both know that won't happen.

Dana, sorry but I disagree. There is no hope for us in MA. The new gun law is a Guaranteed pass no matter what. We read about other states courts saying laws are unconstitutional but in our state I have never seen it happen. You can vote all you want for nothing but I’m getting the hell out just like all the other 50k residents a year.

Colorado is as blue as any state in the union and is quickly trying to surpass California for wackiness. It is a beautiful state but the politics suck beyond belief. I feel sorry for those of you who have had to watch its bastardization. Regardless, it doesn't matter if it is one county or many causing the lurch left, Colorado has become a poster child of the lunatic left.

Same with your sister state south of you. NM would be awesome if it weren't for the mush-head Rio Grande corridor, Santa Fe ring, and metro areas.

The operative word is “controlled”. And….it ain’t gonna get any better. You can “stand and fight” until you are the last man standing and it still won’t do any good. The states on the left coast and the eastern seaboard are gone, in the shitter, down the drain, any other words you want to use. You can put lipstick on that pig, but it’s still a pig. If you stay there you must have good reasons…..to you. I am personally thankful that I was fortunate enough to be born in Texas, but we have liberal shitholes too, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, El Paso, Dallas, ad nauseum. Luckily, we have enough population that aren’t tuned into the liberal though process to overcome most of the crap they espouse. For now.
