Fear generated as a result of gun laws in Colorado is just another example of extremist paranoia. Lots of noise about the government doing their job. 90% of Americans support extended background checks and other regulations on gun ownership and elected representatives are following the will of the voters. The county sheriffs that are suing the state are following the will of a vocal minority.

I'm VERY curious as to where you came up with that "90%"?? It seems that you have Drastically skewed the numbers in your favor...

From Gallup Polling: "Prior to the Senate's failure to pass the measure, numerous polls showed that roughly nine in 10 Americans favor expanded gun background checks in concept -- a fact that a number of journalists, columnists, and politicians made note of. Gallup's Jan. 19-20 survey, for example, showed that 91% of Americans said they personally would vote for a measure requiring criminal background checks for all gun sales. Gallup asked this question again in the April 22-25 survey and found a slight decline, to 83% support. The wording of the new question was slightly modified from the January asking, which may be responsible for some of the change. But it also may be that the Senate's failure to pass the measure deflated Americans' support for it."
