Photos: Gun-magazine-ban demonstration at State Capitol

Big photos below.
"This is not a protest!" exclaimed Ryan Tuleja, one of several dozen Second Amendment defenders who gathered outside the Colorado State Capitol on the day a ban of high-capacity magazines went into effect.

And he was right.

The event was more of an act of civil disobedience, with people in attendance selling and swapping prohibited magazines -- all in front of the eyes of a local law enforcement agency.


"This law is unenforceable," Tuleja shouted. "They know it's unenforceable!"

Officers stood idly as these acts took place.

Look below to see photos and accompanying captions from the event.

Kurt Schwols, who claims to not own a gun, said he bought his magazine this weekend just in case. If he wants to buy a 9mm, he can have the option of putting a high capacity clip inside of it. "This is mine," he exclaimed -- and he can do what he wants with it.

De-criminalize the transfer of an ounce of cannabis, outlaw the transfer of standard magazines. Just a friendly reminder that stupid laws will come and go, but the people will always ignore them, regardless of political fads.

I love the hypocracy of the commenters! How dare these people break the law! Those terrible gun owners and supporters! Of course, if it was breaking the law to support marajuana or some other lefty cause, well, they're just just exercising their rights as Americans. Laughable! You people are nothing but fools.

If Overeaters Anonymous held a talent show, these people could totally pull off a Village People number and WIN!

@Covana Most of America hasn't re-defined and banned the transfer of standard magazines, just scared Colorado politicians did. But I don't expect someone who can't count to understand that.

The majority of the comments sure prove that few know what these new laws were about. 

And jwallick35, you are right, if the law had been to restrict welfare benefits or weed, they would be all over the capitol grounds leaving their empty pop cans, and crappin on police cars, etc.

@jwallick35 I don't give 2 shits about the law. Guns kill, MMJ saves lives. Period

@Monkey @Covana I didn't say anything about standard magazines. You read about as well as a monkey :)

It's pathetic to read these comments. People truly have no idea. I'm sad to say that my generation (end of gen X) and the generation (gen Y) after mine, are the least informed group of people in the country. One would think that with so many tools readily available to help gain knowledge and understanding that they would be more informed than those that came before. People either don't care or they're too stupid to see past the lies.

 @Monkey Owned. Low Capacity brain, I see what you did there...

@Covana   Yes you did, but your Low Capacity brain wont allow you to understand that, just as I suspected.

@jwallick35 Or maybe we are the most informed generation yet and know in the real world the chances of a normal citizen needing 20-30 rounds on a rapid firing semi auto weapon are almost nil compared to the chances of one getting into the wrong hands.
