    Dear Rifle city police chief;

    It is a FELONY for any LEO to attempt to enforce an UNLAWFUL ORDER.

    And yes, YOU and your officers involved will probably be charged and tried in front of a JURY under the STRICT WORDS of the 6th Amendment.

    Everyone should file law suits against our Governors for harm, loss and injury including businesses !

    Irresponsible, Conflating the second amendment with opening a bar to have a drink, damages the cause, and plays into the hands of the opposition. Now the anti-second amendment crowd has “proof” that pro-second amendment people are irresponsible and not law abiding, and therefore can not be trusted with the lethality of a firearm. The #BikersForTrump, defying a lawful order, that may indeed be over reaching, boosted the profile of Joe Biden in the mind of every independent voter in Colorado (a blue state). I suggest that all of you slack jaw, mouth breathing, troglodytes, STOP damaging the brand. Sit down, shut-up, and leave the thinking to those of us who are better equipped to handle the task.
