<NationalReport>Denver, CO–Democrats in the Colorado legislature have pushed through a “Weed for Guns” buyback program. The bill is now on its way to Gov. John Hickenlooper to be executed. Republicans tried desperately to stop the program arguing against such blatant abuses of the Constitution. “It’s not going to work, and I hate to say that,” concluded Senator Mark Sheffel (R). “What it will do is infringe on the rights of law-abiding citizens.” At the end all efforts proved futile as Republicans were only able to pick-off two Democratic defectors.
Democratic Sentate President John Morse stated Monday that he was “proud” that his caucus was promoting the Weed for Guns program in an effort to reduce gun violence.
