8 Colorado Counties Revolt Against Gun Control

Published

on

Eight counties in Colorado are revolting against gun control coming out of Denver.

Custer, Fremont, Kiowa, Montezuma, Otero, Weld, Moffat and Rio Blanco have become “2nd Amendment sanctuaries” after a “Red Flag” gun confiscation bill was passed in the Colorado House.

Red flag gun confiscations orders are the current wave of gun control making headway in state legislatures across the nation. These bills allow judges to order the confiscation of an individual’s firearms if they’re considered a risk. An allegation from a family member, acquaintance, or estranged spouse is enough to justify a confiscation order.

The person subject to a red flag gun confiscation order would then have to prove their innocence in order to have their gun rights restored.

Weld Country Sheriff Steve Reams has firmly opposed this legislation. He believes it cross various constitutional lines. Reams said, “I have a duty for public safety but also have a duty to protect the Constitution.”

The Board of Weld County Commissioners agreed with Reams’s assessment of the situation and passed a resolution opposing red flag laws.

The resolution made clear that commissioners would not allocate money towards a storage facility for weapons confiscated by law enforcement.  The commissioners justified their action on their desire to uphold constitutional rights.

With Democrats in control of all three branches of the Colorado State legislature, the likelihood of red flag laws passing is very high.

Second Amendment resolutions like the ones taking place in Colorado are the way to go for gun owners living in monolithically anti-gun states.  This trend has already caught on in states like Maryland and New Mexico.

When gun control can’t be stopped in the state legislature, the next best option is to not comply.

Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel

Post-pandemic America will not look the same.

Published

on

Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.

In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates. 

Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.” 

Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.

According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”

Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:

If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.  

Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain. 

If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
