Well, folks, we've made our minimum of 100 on the magazines to smuggle into Colorado -- and then some. The generosity of my readers never ceases to amaze me. Along with magazines, I've received brass and even bullets to enhance my reloading efforts in the same boxes, and of course voluntary donations for gas and expenses. God bless you all.
The problem is that as yet the plan for distributing them has yet to come together. There is a civil disobedience already planned for Custer County on the 4th, but we are given to understand (after an initial invitation by organizers) that they "don't want outsiders" there, Custer County would be a great place to do it because the sheriff there is one of the ones who has signed onto the lawsuit against the intolerable act, and says he won't enforce it, so politically it would be a two-fer. Since I'm going to be out in Colorado anyway, I may cover the event for Sipsey Street because the civil disobedience is news in and of itself.
The other possibility is a 1 July civil disobedience planned for the statehouse steps in Denver, but I am awaiting more information on that. This action, planned on Facebook, is described this way:
1- This isn't a political rally. There will be no guest speakers sound systems mc's or dj's. The time for talking about action is over. This is about willful civil disobedience on the doorstep of those who feign to be our rulers.2-this is a protest of the new state law. As it is being done in Denver, I suggest everyone bring or exchange magazines that come as close to the 15 round unit as possible while still going over.3- There is a real possibility of arrest here. with that in mind, I don't recommend bringing mags you cant afford to lose, and i do not recommend carrying."
The organizer is Ryan Tuleja and I am waiting for some more info from him. Previously I had been persuaded by Colorado friends that doing anything in Denver was more than problematic if the crowd numbers were not there. If I'm going to certainly be arrested (as seems to be Tuleja's plan for himself), I don't need a hundred magazines, just one. Perhaps it will be possible to do all three -- participate in the 1 July action in Denver, get bailed out of jail (assuming the bail money can be raised), cover the 4 July action in Custer County AND smuggle in the 100 magazines (with suitable press coverage).
That is how my mind is trending at the moment.
