WND reports: "State grants Secret Service vast new powers."
A bill is heading to Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper’s desk that Republican lawmakers say would give members of the Secret Service broad arrest powers in the state and could provide a framework for federal agents eventually to enforce gun restrictions.“This is absolutely insane,” Rep. Lori Saine, R-Dacono, said. “In theory if a Secret Service agent is in a county where the sheriff has refused to enforce some of the recent unenforceable gun laws, the agent could arrest an individual if he believes the law has been broken.”
Trying this hat on for size in Colorado.

The Secret Service, for its part, tells us:
The Secret Service employs approximately 3,200 special agents, 1,300 Uniformed Division officers, and more than 2,000 other technical, professional and administrative support personnel.
My Uncle Bill killed bunches of German arschlochs wearing this scary patch. They died just as dead as their Fuhrer.
My observation: Why don't these citizen disarmament Colorado puke politicians threaten us with something we're scared of? In the event of civil war, the much-vaunted Secret Service (at least that part of it that ignores their oaths to the Constitution) would:
A. Be so busy protecting green-zoned politicians they wouldn't have time and personnel for anything else, and,
B. Their entire pitiful complement would represent less than a week's worth of casualties. After that, no more SS raid parties, in Colorado or anywhere else.
The question is, how many of these new SS wish to live to see retirement in that event?
